Project Management Solutions

  Date: Nov 01    Category: MOSS    Views: 470

Working at a new clients site and they want a 3rd party project management
solution for SharePoint basically ALL (Keyword here) the functionality of
the MS Office Project Tool without leaving SharePoint, open to suggestions.
Tool must be intuitive and user friendly (as
friendly as possible at least) any and all suggestions are welcome, so let's
hear them.
Also same client is interested in doing something similar to
Constant Contact so if anyone has seen a 3rd party overlay for SharePoint
that will provide user friendly solution for this would be great as well.

Which version of SharePoint???????????????

Answer #2    Answered On: Nov 01    

Am just wondering if you are talking about Project Management Solution, So why
you don't think about MS Project Server.

It'll give you all you need for this kind of solution and also the best part its
a MS product and integrated smoothly with SharePoint.

Answer #3    Answered On: Nov 01    

I would think the closest you're going to get to your MS Project tool is MS
Office Project Server which integrates very well with SharePoint. Even then
though, not everything can be done from the web interface, some items
require the Project client.

Sounds like your client has a case of SharePoint-is-the-silver-bullet-itis!

Answer #4    Answered On: Nov 01    

We're using a combination of Project Server (Microsoft Project) and Team
Foundation Server. Both are integrated with SharePoint.

Are you still teaching? I want to go to a "Great Branding Class" not the
average bear mediocre stuff, I went to your mindSharp Dev training, which was
the best, and I also attended a branding online you did for MS which was AWESOME
a while back. Just wondering if you still did that or not and have anything
coming up?

I'm afraid I'm not teaching anymore. I went back into consulting full time
in the real world. I do a little training once in a while as part of a project,
but nothing public anymore. But thanks for the nice words and fond memories.

the re-occurring why not project server
(especially since I am a Microsoft solution specialist), I am not the project
sponsor, just the PM first and for most lol, but even so the team that is
looking into it is not a tech savvy group but there organization is designed to
be very project heavy, they treat there clients work as projects. I have looked
at the Brightwork's and EPM live solutions and they look very well designed and
geared more towards the solution route we will go. Again, they also are approved
as MS partners so that is a big bonus thanks to all of you for your replies, I
can almost gaurantee I will be sending a shopping list of 3rd party tools as
this client has some pretty high hopes as to using SP as a platform for there
organization, we have already discussed Nintex for WF, News Gator, MS Office
WebApps, MS Productivity hub, and so forth..
