A head of software R&D would like to see high level information about the projects R&D works on. What is needed : project, milestones, features, risks. Ability to add features or report bugs if needed.
Later this can be used even for reports to top management, etc. There are different geographically separated offices, and there are some other outsourcing companies that work for R&D. Every office and outsourcing companies use own project tracking systems like jira, tfs, etc.
So our problem is how not to do double work (e.g. have another system in R&D) and give up-to-date information to the head of R&D. On the other hand it's not easy to use centralized system since security and all other restrictions, especially with outsourcing companies. Excel reports will not work :( either
Maybe somebody encountered similar case. Could you advise ?
