Project Management Service

The “GWDG Project Management Service” (https://projects.gwdg.de) is a collaboration self service that allows you to manage and track your projects and source code repositories. By using the “GWDG Project Management Service”, users can independently coordinate their projects, keep track of their issues and document their results. In addition, users can analyse the progress of their projects and have tools to detect problems early. This allows you to manage your projects in a coordinated fashion to also reduce risks. For this purpose, the “GWDG Project Management Service” offers a number of features that can be enabled on demand.
