    While there is certainly a benefit to adding parallel processing to the PEM workflow, we don't expect that we are going to be able to deliver on this enhancement in the medium term (the next 18 months).

    It would be useful if partner tasks could be carried out in parallel with other partner tasks i.e. where there is no dependency, especially where tasks have different roles assigned. Multiple users could enter the required data in parallel before the streams come together at the end for approval/provisioning.
