This chapter describes the components of a Microsoft Office Enterprise Project Management (EPM) Solution. This material is written for executives, managers, and system administrators who are responsible for planning the deployment of an EPM Solution.

An EPM Solution that is based on Microsoft Office Project Server 2007 is deployed across multiple tiers: a client tier, a Web tier, an application tier, and a database tier. Applications and services in each tier provide for availability and scalability, enabling organizations of any size to manage projects of a range of sizes and levels of complexity. You can configure the application and database tiers of your EPM Solution to best meet the needs and requirements of your organization.
