Author by James Savage

Over forty guests joined together on May 6, 2009 at the Microsoft Office in Waukesha for Concurrency’s sold out event. Concurrency employees showed guests that SharePoint is a useful to for project management when using the proper combinations for models. Guest had a packed day with information sessions explaining the useful tools SharePoint has while aiding in your Project Management Department.
  • What is Project Portfolio Management?
  • PPM and Collaboration
  • Aligning Project Management
  • Enterprise Project Management (EPM) Demonstrations
  • SharePoint Demonstrations
  • Tips from the Pros
Guests were taught ways to understand the best practice and use of Microsoft SharePoint vs. the Microsoft Portfolio and Project Servers. With the proper tool combination it can make your Project Management team unstoppable. The Enterprise Project Management scenario demonstrations showed guests how SharePoint works differently with MS Project for team collaboration, with Project Server for the EPM side of things. Also the Portfolio Server helps with the PPM for better quality material. Concurrency employees went on to show real life scenarios through demonstrations using SharePoint in conjunction with a Project Management mind set. Many client case studies came into effect for showing guest the real life combinations of SharePoint with Project Management, Team Collaboration and the benefit of using a SharePoint Based System. It was a very successful event for both guest and Concurrency as they spread useful knowledge on how to make your business run more efficient and smoothly.
