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.

Yes, definitely. We wanted a flexible but robust software and Sciforma seemed to be the best fit

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.

Cons

  • The largest con for me is the clunky UI. It's not very intuitive, and has a larger learning curve to become a proficient user.
  • Reports are functional, but could use some improvements.
  • It can be slow at times, and you have to wait to make sure your changes are saved before moving on.

This software allows project and portfolio managers to analyze and prioritize projects based on resource allocation and available effort. It helps you compare the sorecast effort with resource availability. You can email, call or tweet them if you have concerns.

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.

We were looking at vendors but they didn't meet our expectations and weren't flexible enough.

Return on Investment

Microsoft Project Server

  • We've been able to reduce the number of staff in our PMO by utilising the Project Server data in Power BI, reducing the need for manual reporting.
  • Being able to forecast utilization in the product allows us to accurately estimate resource needs to ensure optimum staff levels.

Sciforma

  • Before Sciforma we were running projects out of Excel and emails. Using a cloud based application means that everyone is viewing information in real time.
  • Our executive leadership knows that they have one place to go for a real time status on all of our strategic projects.
