New white paper: Reporting with Microsoft Project Server 2010

I am very excited to announce the release of a great white paper written by Andrew Lavinsky from UMT Consulting Group, entitled Reporting with Microsoft Project Server 2010. This 82 pages document is a great read to learn and understand the reporting options of Microsoft Project Server 2010. In Andrew’s words: “The most compelling story within Project Server 2010 is both individual and individualized dashboards. Not only can I now create a dashboard intensely focused on the data requirements of an individual, but I can empower individuals to create their own customized dashboards.” Start you download!
