EPM Installation and Configuration

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. Microsoft's 2010 Enterprise Project Managment (EPM) System

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.

If you are new to this system, EPM 2003, 2007 and 2010 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 ProjectMS Project Server requires an Enterprise Project Management Specialist 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.

EPM Solutions and Microsoft Project Server Consulting

  • Assessment: This involves a health and maturity check of the organization's needs and capabilities in all areas of Project Management. Assessment involves custom-designed PSSI capability evaluation templates and management interviews. The purpose of assessment is to determine the goals of prototype, pilot, and each phase of EPM deployment.

  • Enterprise Project Management (EPM) Proof-of-Concept: We take an assessment of your major requirements and perform a basic Microsoft Project Server installation and configuration so that you can evaluate the system and plan for a possible prototype.

  • 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 up Microsoft Office Project Server 2003, 2007 or 2010 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.

  • Enterprise Project Management (EPM) Phased Deployment: EPM rollout is the next step after the successful implementation of EPM pilot. It involves training, server modifications, standardization of procedures, cross complexities of resources and management and a strict code of enterprise functioning within the project management domain.

  • Enterprise Project Management (EPM) Audit: Our MS Project Server System Audit is a technical and functional review of your implementation. Our technical audit ensures all Microsoft Office Project Server functionality is operational. During our functional audit we review your Project Server configuration and provide recommendations to improve and mature your system. We also guide you in the proper use of the Project Server Enterprise software.

  • Business Process Consulting: This involves using industry best practices to generate a host of business processes aimed at resource management, project management, cost analysis, and portfolio analysis. 

  • Systems Integration: Our Technical Team has many years of experience exchanging Microsoft Project and database data with other systems. We have worked on typical integration projects to populate dashboards, perform analysis and status assignments from timesheet systems, etc.
