Project Web Access

  Asked By: Evelyn    Date: Mar 11    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1561

From my understanding, If a new project is created using Project
Professional (or Project Web Access), then a new SharePoint site will
be created under http://<spsPortal>/sites/<newProject>. All the risk,
tasks etc of the new project can be updated in SharePoint Site. Any
authorized user can use ProjectWebAccess or SharePoint Site to access
the project information.

Can anyone explain me why/how a SharePoint site is more
advantage/needed than Project Web Access.

I need to answer this question to a key person in my organization. Any
valuable resources/links/documentation???
