For large organizations with numerous departments, ensuring those departments are fully staffed to effectively accomplish their work can be challenging. By sorting the allocation heatmap report by department, you can much more easily gain an understanding of which departments are in trouble.
In the example above, you can see underallocations in your Professional Services department and, more crucially, you can see your Software Engineering department is overallocated from the start of the year through May.
Drilling down further into the Software Engineering department, you can see that the overallocations are specifically related to the Architecture and Client sub-departments, while your Server sub-department is evenly allocated. Understanding exactly which sub-departments or teams are overallocated helps you determine exactly where additional resources are needed or which projects will need to be changed so teams aren’t overbooked.
