Hello World, Hello The New Microsoft Project!
Following a week of staged announcements that started last week: Welcome to the New Microsoft Office, we have disclosed the next version of your beloved project portfolio management (PPM) solution during the past week, a must read: The new Microsoft Project.
It’s exciting to finally be able to talk about what we have been working on in Redmond for the past little while. It’s hard to contain my excitement and put in words what I think about this upcoming release in a single blog post!
I have worked with Project Server since the 2002 version (shortly after Project Central) and the next Project and in particular Project Online is a LANDMARK release that will change the course of history, it’s a magical moment for all of us… Regardless of your industry, your location, your role or your PPM maturity, this upcoming release (it’s a Preview) brings massive innovation to your day to day PPM activities. Demand management, portfolio analysis, ALM, apps, social, anywhere access on any device, resource management, multi-tenant SaaS, agile to name a few random key innovations… Project Portfolio Management will never be the same.
The breath and scale at which we will deliver multi-tenant PPM capabilities into a secure and reliable SaaS (Software as a Service) is unmatched in the industry! The new Project Pro for Office 365 service will change the project management world! I’ll stop talking and will provide you a few key links to help you get started and learn about the Preview. The journey just started last week and expect a lot more content in the coming weeks/months!
The Project Online train is leaving the station, please don’t miss it!
