Microsoft PPM Solution, Microsoft Project, Microsoft Project Online & Project Server
The Microsoft Project & Portfolio Management (PPM) Solution is an end-to-end collaborative project and portfolio environment. The Microsoft Enterprise PPM Solution helps your organisation gain visibility, insight, and control across all work, enhancing decision-making, improving alignment with business strategy, maximising resource utilisation, and measuring and helping to increase operational efficiency.
The Microsoft PPM Solution includes the following products from the Microsoft Project PPM family to provide organisations with an end-to-end project portfolio management (PPM) solution:
- Microsoft Project Professional: Microsoft Project Professional includes all the capabilities in Microsoft Project Standard. Microsoft Project Professional gives you robust project management tools with the right blend of usability, power, and flexibility, so you can manage projects more efficiently and effectively. You can stay informed, control project work, schedules, and finances, and keep project teams aligned, while becoming more productive through powerful reporting options, integration with familiar Microsoft Office system programs, guided planning, wizards, and templates. In addition, Microsoft Project Professional provides PPM capabilities when connected to Microsoft Project Server.
- Microsoft Project Server: Project Server is the flexible end to end PPM platform that supports portfolio management, resource management, scheduling, reporting, collaboration and workflow capabilities in the PPM Solution. Project Server enables organisations to store project and resource information centrally and consistently. It also integrates with Microsoft SharePoint for file management and collaboration capabilities, helping team members to work together more effectively. Further, based on their roles, users can access data and functionality via the Internet with the Microsoft Project Web App, allowing users to access and edit data directly in their web browser. Some users may only require "Project Lite" - a lighter version of the Project Web App designed specifically for users that simply need to report progress on the tasks they are assigned to, gain visibility into the project detail, and collaborate in a dedicated Project Site on Documents, Issues and Risks. Project Lite is also aimed at Executives who simply need high level views of Project and Portfolio information.
