  • Question

  • Is Project Server 2010 synonimous with Microsoft Enterprise Project Management?  Are they two terms applying to the same product suite?

  • Hi Mickey,

    Yes that is correct, impletmenting Project Server 2010 will then give you the platform to be able to do project / portfolio management, resource management, demand management etc.

    Thanks

  • Hi there,

    Yes Project Server 2010 and Project Professional 2010 are part of Microsoft Enterprise Project Management (EPM) solution. This link details what is included in the EPM solution: http://www.microsoft.com/project/en-us/solutions.aspx

    Hope that helps

  • Hi Paul,

    That helps a bit.  I was somewhat confused if all of the Project Server 2010 and MS Enterprise Project Management Solution documentation was defining two levels of implementation or one.  For example, my company goal may be as simple as merging project schedules and resources to the portfolio/program  level vis-a-vis implementing Demand Management, Governance, Business Case development, Issue/Risk Management and more.  You get the picture, it's the degree with which the solution offers flexibility.

    Unfortunately the Microsoft documentation uses the two terms (Project & EPM) synonymously and I found myself wondering if I was reading about two products.  It looks like you implement Project Server 2010 and all of the EPM components though if I understand your reply correctly.

    Thanks Paul.

    Mickey
