Microsoft Project 2010 Connector for System Center Service Manager

Following this recent announcement last month from the System Center Service Manager team: New SCSM–Microsoft Project Connector Released, I finally got a chance to test out this very nice solution built by Expit’s. In their own word:

Expit has developed a plugin/connector that enables the exchange of information between project planning software (Project server 2010) and System Center Service Manager. The connector allows project server users to convert project tasks into tickets in service manager directly from project server or project professional clients that are connected to project server. Additionally, the connector also updates project tasks to reflect ticket status in service manager and mark tasks as complete once tickets are closed.

Expit has also recorded the following video to demo the product: Expit SCSM Project Connector; and please find below screenshots from my own testing, again it’s a great validation of the Project 2010 momentum and its rich extensibility that helps you meet your project management needs in your favorite planning tool!
