This white paper highlights the new features in Microsoft Project Server 2010. It is written for end users.
Managing projects is more than merely checking task status, schedules, and the critical path. It is a multi-faceted discipline. Projects succeed and thrive with effective collaboration and control over knowledge assets to deliver top and bottom-line business results. Keeping the Project Team and stakeholders up to date on all aspects of a project's status is important to managing stakeholders and completing a project successfully. Project Server 2010 brings together robust project, program, and portfolio management together with extensive collaboration features.
Microsoft SharePoint Server is a collaboration platform with a powerful set of capabilities and features. Enterprise Project Management (EPM) helps organizations select and deliver projects, reduce costs, and drive efficiencies. In most organizations, these activities contribute to a shared overall objective but will exist separate from one another.
The new feature set in Project Server 2010 creates a tool that provides multiple capabilities to include successful project management, program management and portfolio management. Now, Project Server 2010 can help guide an organization in selecting, planning, executing and managing its initiatives with the specific goals of meeting project success metrics, aligning with strategic objectives, and driving the organization toward its goals.
