Why SharePoint and Project Server is the Right Tool Combination For Your Projects

3,284 views

Published on

On May 3rd, C/D/H hosted a webinar with New Horizons Computer Learning Centers on SharePoint and Project Server – and why they are the right tool combination for managing your projects—no matter how big—or how small.

Attendees learned an overview of Microsoft Project and SharePoint, Project Server architecture, SharePoint and Project integration, and reporting. David Tappan, a SharePoint consultant at C/D/H, also provided his insights on Microsoft Project from a SharePoint administrator’s perspective, including adding Project Server to your existing farm and how Project Server changes SharePoint administrative procedures.

View C/D/H’s SharePoint and Project Server slide deck and find out why Project Server, combined with SharePoint, can be useful in almost every project management office.

  11. 11. CDH The Business Needs Align work with strategicRationalize investment objectives Manage projects and Gain visibility and resources effectively control over projects
  12. 12. CDH Why Project Management• Project and Portfolio Management helps organizations gain visibility and control across all work, enhancing decision-making, improving alignment with business strategy, maximizing resource utilization, and enhancing project execution
  13. 13. CDH Microsoft Project Server 2010 • Microsoft Project Server 2010 builds upon the Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 platform • Provides a basis for Project Web App pages, site administration, project workspaces, and authentication infrastructure for Project Server users. • Provides portfolio tracking and planning
  14. 14. CDH SharePoint • What is SharePoint? – Microsoft SharePoint 2010 makes it easier for people to work together – SharePoint 2010 helps you share ideas and expertise and find the right business information to make better decisions • Isn’t that what project management is all about?
  15. 15. CDH Collaboration • Connect teams with SharePoint Sync • Built on SharePoint Server 2010 • Better time and status reporting • Easily create reports and dashboards • SharePoint Collaboration
  16. 16. CDH Project Server • The major difference between Project Server 2010 and Office Project Server 2007 is that 2010 requires Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 to be installed on the computer running Project Server and on all Project Web App servers within a SharePoint farm.
  17. 17. CDH Project Server Requirements • The 64-bit version of Windows Server 2008 SP2 or Windows Server 2008 R2 • Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 Enterprise version • Microsoft Internet Explorer 7, Microsoft IE 8, or Microsoft IE 9 for Microsoft Project Web App user access
  18. 18. CDH Project Server Requirements • For farm deployment, database servers must be 64-bit Microsoft SQL Server 2008 SP1 and Cumulative Update 2, Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2, or Microsoft SQL Server 2005 SP3
  19. 19. CDH Project Server 2010 Architecture
  20. 20. CDH Project Server Architecture • The front-end tier includes third-party applications, Microsoft Project Professional, and Project Web App. • Project Web App uses Internet Explorer to display Microsoft ASP.NET 3.5 pages. • Project Web App pages use Project Server Web Parts that communicate with the PSI and use standard SharePoint Server 2010 Web Parts.
  21. 21. CDH Project Server Architecture • All Project Server data is stored in Microsoft SQL Server databases. – Draft – Published – Archive – Reporting • In Project Server 2010, all of the Project Server databases can be located on separate servers.
  22. 22. Integration Between ProjectCDH Server and SharePoint • Project Server 2010 is tightly coupled with SharePoint tasks lists. • In Project Server 2010, you have option to create a fully managed portfolio composed entirely of entries in a SharePoint task list. • If you start with a Project 2010 file you can generate ongoing, two way sync between the project and a SharePoint task list.
  23. 23. CDHCDH SharePoint Administrator Perspective David Tappan
  24. 24. Integration with SharePoint –CDH Project Sites • Two modes: – Project Pro-only SharePoint Sync • Syncs tasks to SharePoint tasks list (Project Server not needed). – Save to SharePoint • Project Pro saves to Project Server databases—our focus today. – Save to SharePoint Mode • Tasks sent to Risks, Issues, Deliverables, etc. can be linked to tasks in the Project file.
  25. 25. Integration with SharePoint CDH IT Pro Questions • Should I add Project Server to my existing farm? • Does PWA need to be in a separate site collection or web application? • Can I add pre-existing “Project Lite” sites to PWA?
  26. 26. How Project Server ChangesCDH SharePoint Admin Procedures • Don’t delete any columns in any built-in lists in the Microsoft Project site template • Don’t make additional lists based on Issues, Risks, or Deliverables templates in the same project site. • Don’t delete project sites the “SharePoint way”. • If you synchronize permissions to project sites, alerts will be lost. To avoid, administer SharePoint permissions yourself.
  27. 27. CDH Database Requirements • Analysis Services is required • Reporting Services (and PerformancePoint) are optional • A separate content database for the PWA site is recommended • Project sites can be in any database/site collection
  28. 28. CDH Project Server Code • Project Server 2010 shares the SharePoint Server Enterprise code base – You get access to great enterprise features like InfoPath Forms Services and Performance Point dashboards. • Project reports are now presented directly in Performance Point business intelligence Report Center.
  29. 29. CDH Project Server Data • The Draft database contains tables for saving unpublished projects from Microsoft Project Professional and other applications. • Project Web App does not show project data in the Draft database.
  30. 30. CDH Project Server Data • The Published database contains all published projects and enterprise resources, the enterprise global template, and other templates. Published projects are visible in Project Web App. • The Published database also contains tables that are specific to Project Web App.
  31. 31. CDH Project Server Architecture • The Reporting database (RDB) is the staging area for generating reports and OLAP cubes. • Data in the Reporting database is comprehensive and updated in, almost, real time.
  32. 32. CDH SharePoint and Project Server • The Project Web App components of Project Server also use the Microsoft SharePoint 2010 configuration database for project site setup and the content database for project site content such as custom pages, workflows, management settings, documents, and lists of issues, risks, and commitments.
