Project server

The Microsoft Project version employed ODBC to connect to the server, which is problematic over low bandwidth and high latency connections. The version uses SOAP to access the server. Specifically, a job in the queue could get stuck and block other jobs from completion.

The Release to Manufacturing Version is now available for download. Compared to Microsoft Project Serverthe imminent release does not seem very extensive at first glance.

But looks can be deceiving. The current versions of Microsoft Project Server and Project server Online already offer a transparent view of current project activities from a variety of perspectives.

In companies with matrix organizations, the significant expansion of capacity and resource management in Microsoft Project brings additional transparency to the interaction between project planning and line planning.

Features "Resource Requests" and "Requests Engagements" Project documents approvals and rejections by line managers for capacity requests submitted by project managers with separate data objects. This seamless documentation of all resource approvals makes agreements between team and project managers much more reliable than is the case now.

It creates the basis for truly transparent resource management across all stakeholders - also for line managers. In doing so, there is no need for additional tools for resource management purposes anymore. Click through the screenshots to learn more.

Heat maps So-called heat maps - a feature that required the involvement of an implementation partner in the past - make it possible to significantly speed up decision-making processes in resource management. Color graphics provide a quick overview of possible over- or under-allocation at a glance, even with very large Project server volumes and highly-complex project dependencies.

The system uses a traffic light color scheme, for which thresholds can be freely defined. Now line managers can respond quickly in terms of resource planning, before bottlenecks occur in one of the projects or with one of the employees.

Multiple visual timelines The ability to visualize the progress of a project along a time axis was already included in Project in the form of the timeline feature. A new addition for the version of Project Client is the option of managing multiple time axes for a project and display them as bars that lie on top of each other.

For example, the top bar could represent the entire project while a bar below provides additional details for a specific sub-project. In this way, it is possible to differentiate between the various phases of a project without losing sight of the overall project due to the additional amount of detail.

Tell me what you want to do A new entry field called "Tell me what you want to do" - integrated into the menu bar - simplifies the search for one of the many commands in Project Client by integrating a new search window directly into the interface.

It reduces the time required to search for rarely used functions. Since NovemberMicrosoft has provided a pre-defined set of analyses especially for Project Online, which can be adjusted, expanded and optimized within very short time periods.

Office Planner - Simplified task coordination in teams In addition to Project Online, Microsoft has been offering another Cloud service since the end of It offers customized software components for the visually-supported planning, management and coordination of team tasks.

This tool specializes in the planning of working groups, task forces, expert groups and temporary teams from different departments. Shorter innovation cycle Innovation cycles are also shortened as the online versions are gradually enhanced and made available to users.

Now there is no need to wait for the next version - new functions for more efficient tool support in project management are available immediately.

Reducing the pressure on IT The pressure on the IT department is permanently reduced because the size of the in-house operated application portfolio does not increase and the the efforts related to future release changes no longer apply. Investments in new server hardware are not required.

Old Project server versions The advantages offered by the online version should also be considered wherever the earlier Project Server versionsor are still in use. Microsoft has already discontinued mainstream support for versions and ; and support services for Project Server will expire in October.
