Introduction to PIR

Plutora’s PIR (Post-Implementation Review) item is designed to support lessons learned and post-mortem activities performed after a release is implemented into Production.

PIR item captures any issues that may have occurred during the life of the release, or during its go-live. It supports warranty or hyper-care phases and ensures that any mistakes are captured, rectified, and not repeated on subsequent releases.

Any environment-related issues can be brought into PIR item through integrations with Incident and Defect Management applications, to assist with non-Production environment uptime/availability reporting. 

A PIR item can answer the following questions:

  • Were the project objectives met? Does the release do what it was meant to do? 
  • Can your delivery process be improved upon? 
  • Are there lessons that need to be learned so that problems do not reoccur? 
  • Are there any ways you could maximize your project delivery benefits? 


You must have customized the PIR menu by using the PIR Customization feature.
