MSProject/MSProject Server (EPM/PPM) Consulting 2010-2016

Enterprise Project Management Installation & Configuration
Microsoft Office Project Server, or what is more commonly called Microsoft’s Enterprise Project Management (EPM) system, isn’t the type of system that can be installed, turned on, and then automatically used by project teams.
Our Enterprise Project Management (EPM) implementation consulting philosophy is based on the belief that a thorough understanding of your business issues will lead to the most appropriate EPM solution and approach. Reaching your EPM goals are primarily a function of a carefully phased deployment (spending the time to prototype and pilot your system extremely well), and the people you have enlisted to work with you, to support you and guide you.

We take great care to analyze your objectives, systems, constraints, and resources. Our implementation recommendations will be tailored toward your unique situation.


And, more importantly, than any other service we provide, our Enterprise Project Management Specialists will be extremely honest about what they think the system can do for you and what you can realistically expect from your teams given the organization’s culture and experience. 

If you are new to this system, EPM 2003 through 2016 are each viewed as multi-tier systems: 1) a SQL database tier on the bottom of both of these graphics, 2) the application tier with Microsoft Office Project
Server, [fully integrated with WSS in 2007 and a WSS App in 2010] being the primary server application providing the business logic for objects like projects, tasks, resources and assignments, and 3) the client tier including Microsoft Office Project Professional, Project Web App (Access), and possibility other lines of business software.

  • Enterprise Project Management (EPM) Prototype: We can install EPM for you, train your prototype team, make a first pass at configuration, and review prototype, pilot and employment strategies pretty much during a single engagement.
  • Enterprise Project Management (EPM) Pilot: A pilot includes all activities involved with setting upMicrosoft Office Project Server 2010 – 2016 on a company server. Customization includes custom templates, security settings, Microsoft SharePoint Services settings, and Microsoft Project Professional settings as per company requirements. The EPM pilot is designed to run a select portfolio of projects to understand the quality and quantity of information gathered from the system and to evaluate the effectiveness of an EPM application.
