EPM 2007 Test Data Population Tool released to CodePlex

The EPM 2007 Test Data Population Tool solution starter was published on CodePlex today: http://www.codeplex.com/EPMDatapop

The EPM 2007 Test Data Population Tool enables you to load large amounts of EPM data: resources, projects, tasks, assignments into a Project Server 2007 database. You can then use this data to test loads and help your organization plan for your Project Server 2007 deployment. This tool is similar to the EPM 2003 Data Population utility but contains more features plus since the sources are provided you can customize it to fit your specific needs.  It was written by EPM World Wide Center of Excellence (WW COE) to generate data needed to perform performance and scalability labs for large and complex EPM deployments.

The EPM 2007 Test Data Population Tool is a Win Form application that leverages the Project Server Interface (PSI) and/or WinProj (Project Professional).

This solution starter includes a 15 pages document, a setup.exe to deploy it, as well as all source code.

A special thank you to Mike Shughrue and Michael Jordan from the EPM WW COE for creating and testing the tool extensively during scalability labs, as well as Boris Scholl from the Product Marketing Group for reviewing the code and documentation.
