Microsoft Project Server

Microsoft Project Server I believe is best for any organization from small to large. As I mentioned, it is a little pricey so I would do research into alternative software and depending on your needs maybe look at all options, competing software. This is a tool with a learning curve and some may not be able to easily navigate this software. There isn't really great training, resources available for this tool however there are some free YouTube tutorial videos. This is great for cross company, department project management, sharing, managing of projects and timelines.

SAP Portfolio and Project Management

Once SAP Portfolio and Project Management is configured then it is easy to use. Initial configuration and enabling additional features is time consuming. The best advantage of this software is that it allows us to manage multiple projects and multiple teams at same time. File uploads and download is very easy. KPI and status report can present with live data. Scheduling meeting and recording is not that great with this software.

Pros

Microsoft Project Server

  • Project planning: tasks assignments, resources allocation, progress and cost tracking. The Server version is the natural extension of the Microsoft Project standalone.
  • Provides one place to manage all projects, accessible by everyone in the team. This opens the plan updates to team members as well(on their tasks), as opposed to being done only by the project manager.
  • Reporting and visualization - resources utilization, timeline etc
  • The integration with the Microsoft Project standalone: if you don't like the web version, you can download the latest and work locally. When done just sync it back to the server.

Alternatives Considered

Microsoft Project Server

One of the key advantages of Microsoft Project Server (MSPS) is its ecosystem. It gels very well with SharePoint, Office, Office 365. The support from Microsoft is also a key driver and they are very experienced and many ways to resolve issues. Also, Microsoft has bridged the gap of cloud offering from other competitors by providing Project Online. It is an offering through Office 365 which is very lean and low maintenance.

SAP Portfolio and Project Management

For already existing and green field SAP project the SAP Portfolio and Project Management is the best product for handling projects. Sending and importing data and information is efficient using this software. You can communicate with other project members using this product environment. This works great with complex and bigger projects. Other software like Microsoft Project, ProjectLibre are also good products but [inconvenient] for SAP environment.
