Case study: Digia successfully adopts Silverbucket

Before Digia started using Silverbucket, all the business units had several spreadsheets for various purposes. Reporting was done well but it was mostly used for looking back on what had already been achieved. The workload was unevenly distributed and the lack of resources caused a lot of grey hairs.

People allocation and project prioritizing was mainly based on guessing, and they found it difficult to see gaps in their resource planning.
