Project Plan Services (PPS) has been selected by Yorkshire Water to assist with their IT department’s SharePoint/Project Server 2010 migration project. This work will enable Yorkshire Water IT to migrate their existing projects, resources and reports onto the latest production version of their Enterprise Project Management solution (EPM). Once complete, Yorkshire Water IT will be able to take advantage of the new capabilities offered in the 2010 version of EPM such as Excel reporting services, SharePoint integration and the many new desktop features afforded by Project 2010 Professional (and previously introduced features from Project 2007). more
Microsoft have this week announced the arrival of Project 2013 and Project Server 2013 in Beta version initially for preview purposes. What does this mean for you and your organisation?
Quite apart from a new latest version with additional features and capabilities, Project will now be offered Online as well as in desktop form. “Project Online” will be an accessible application from within the Office 365 suite of online services and will bring the benefits of EPM to a wider set of organisations who cannot afford the capital outlay and risk of deploying Project Server in house without the solution being proved first. Organisations will be able to use Project Online to manage their entire work and project portfolios on on a pay as you go per user basis and can gradually introduce new capabilities in their project management environment as user adoption and satisfaction ramps up.
PPS as MS Project experts and Office 365 partners are ideally placed to provide the specialist advice that organisations will need in order to become early adopters of these solutions. It is a long awaited development and PPS welcomes all enquiries from existing and new clients who wish to achieve rapid benefit from Project online.
