State Bank & Trust: SharePoint-Innotas Integration Project

Project Details



Problem:

  • Innotas is an online PPM (project portfolio management) tool used by State Bank & Trust.
  • Innotas bills State Bank for every user account.
  • A lot of State Bank employees do not need to use all features of Innotas, just need to know the status of ongoing IT projects related to them; it's not economical for State Bank to purchase licenses for them.

Resources:

  • State Bank has a SharePoint server to which all employees have access.
  • State Bank's Innotas license permits use of its API to access its data.

Solution:

  • Create SharePoint web parts that retrieve data from Innotas using its API and show a given ongoing IT project's status.

Details:

  • 3 web parts, one each for a project's
    • Health Overview
    • Issues/Risks
    • Milestones
  • A web part property will allow changing the ID of the project whose status has to be retrieved.
