There needs to be better integration with other Microsoft products. Tech support needs improvement.

What is our primary use case?

They have moved from a paper to a project management tool. That's the big change. Earlier, they were using papers and then they started using Project Professional to run their project server, it's a huge change and a huge transition.

What needs improvement?

I think they've begun to improve with the new cloud integration. Previously, this was an issue. Now, I don't think there are any further changes that need to be done for the cloud issue. There needs to be better integration between SharePoint and other Microsoft platforms and this solution. Furthermore, there should be a better integration with the use of the cloud and mobile devices.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

It's pretty straightforward to use. It integrates nicely with Microsoft Project Server.

What is our primary use case?

My primary use case is to take advantage of Microsoft Project Server to plan and track program project work at an enterprise level. Particularly, to enable tracking of actual project and program costs across multiple business lines.

Pros and Cons

  • It's most useful feature is that it interfaces with Project Server so we can, from my perspective, from a portfolio perspective, we can see across the organization.
  • The scalability is co-dependent on the stability of the product. We have 4000 users, and at times the product is slow.
  • The packaging of Microsoft Project Professional is pretty simple as a product. But, the end-to-end enterprise is complex.

Cost and Licensing Advice

  • I am not involved with this.

What other advice do I have?

My suggestion is to do homework and compare what other products are out there and how well they will fit with your organisation. This one's okay. I've personally used a range of different products, all potentially good choices, it just depends on the operating context and culture of the organization whether it's going to fit, or not.
