Essential Management is a multi-user project management system for managing intricate and complex information. Its initial purpose was to allow software development teams to create, maintain, track, and store project requirements on a multi-project basis in a multi-user environment. It has now become more abstract in the type of data it can maintain, allowing the easy addition of new data models and other expansions. Information can be stored in any of several database management systems, and can take advantage of a networked DBMS.
