Microsoft Project Server ConsultingMicrosoft Project Server is a work management platform designed to help businesses of any size to deliver critical projects on time and within budget. Project Server centralizes, streamlines, and enhances an organization's ability to prioritize, track, schedule, staff, control, and complete programs managed by Microsoft's Project Professional and Project Web App (formerly Web Access) clients. Current releases of Project Server incorporate or integrate with a wide range of Microsoft technologies that together create a powerful platform capable of handling anything from simple project management through project and portfolio management (PPM) and up to Enterprise Project Management (EPM). Project Server is essentially an on-premises equivalent to Microsoft's cloud-based Project Online service, which is available on a subscription basis. Project Server initially featured some additional capabilities compared to Project Online, notably in the area of business intelligence (BI) reporting.

Current versions of Project Server are built on SharePoint Server to provide extensive features for supporting workgroup collaboration and reporting, enterprise search, workflow-based document review, and web-centric communication via wikis, blogs, forums, and My Sites. Project Server is tightly integrated with Microsoft's Business Intelligence (BI) platform to facilitate the creation of management reports and dashboards using Excel Services, Visio Services, and SQL Server Reporting Services. Microsoft Project Server also incorporates the techniques of Microsoft Office Project Portfolio Server 2007 to provide unified project and portfolio management capabilities in a single server. Enhancements such as new demand management and capacity planning modules offer fast return on investment by providing customizable workflow controls, project prioritization based on strategic business value, and optimal resource allocation and scheduling.

Progent's Microsoft-certified engineering team can provide expert remote and onsite consulting services for all versions of Microsoft Project Server as well as for Microsoft platforms that integrate closely with Project Server. Consulting support offered by Progent includes Microsoft Project integration, SharePoint Server planning and deployment, Microsoft SQL Server expertise, Exchange Server integration, Office Excel and Microsoft 365 Excel application support, plus PowerPoint and Visio live online training. Progent can provide Cisco-certified network engineers to help you optimize your infrastructure to support local, branch office, at-home, and mobile workers so they can use Project Server to collaborate securely and efficiently. Progent's certified security experts can help you plan and enforce security policies that protect sensitive project information without interfering with the productive sharing of authorized data.
