Christophe Fiessinger's Blog Updates on Microsoft's Enterprise Social Networking (ESN) and Project Portfolio Management (PPM) offerings
Yes, I am really really really looking forward to see you all next week at SharePoint Conference 2012 in Las Vegas #SPC12!
Why you may ask? Well it will be the first Microsoft public event where we will showcase the newly released (The New Microsoft Project reaches RTM!) version of Project Online, Project Server 2013, Project Professional 2013, SharePoint 2013, etc. With a new release there is a ton to learn and we have plenty of content for you; starting with a cannot miss pre-SPC free 1 day training on Sunday November 11th, announced by my colleague Jan Kalis on the partner blog: The Best of Project Ignite at SPC12.
Following this packed one day event we have 12 sessions to date on your favorite PPM products, delivered by product experts from Microsoft, MVPs and customers during SPC12: Microsoft Project Sessions at SharePoint Conference 2012
And yes we will have a Project booth staffed by product experts from Microsoft, MVPs and marketing (!) where you can ask all your questions and get some surprises…
But wait there is more … SPC12 this year will also have ton of networking opportunities, community initiatives and last but not least, great activities at night to relax and have fun.
I’m arriving in Las Vegas Saturday, November 10th and will return to sunny Seattle on Friday, November 16th and I look forward to meet all of you (please leverage MySPC Meetings feature to schedule one)!
Trust me, you do not want to miss this historical event…

Following the RTM announcement: The New Microsoft Project reaches RTM! the on-premise products are becoming available in different distribution channels starting with MSDN and TechNet subscribes as show below (and yes Project Server 2013 will also be available very soon…). Please check the Office RTM post for overall timeline for other channels: Office Reaches RTM!
Following Xbox’s announcement today: Introducing the New Entertainment Experience from Xbox and the fact that Internet Explorer is now an app on my favorite gaming console, and while waiting for Microsoft Surface to be ready, I went ahead and looked at a few sites but quickly decided to test my favorite site these days: Microsoft Project Online on Xbox… After entering my Office 365 Preview credentials I was able to navigate PWA and access the usual: Project Center, Portfolio Analysis, BI Center and Excel Services Center, Newsfeed & my tasks etc. as shown below (yes it’s hard to take high quality pics of my TV!). Almost 2 years ago I when Kinect came out I wrote this: Microsoft Project 2010 Kinect Edition: You Are the Controller! and guess what, it’s getting closer to reality thanks to Project Online… You are the controller!
Don’t wait any longer and try Project Online on your favorite device!!!
Yes!!!!! The New Microsoft Project reaches RTM! and yes that means the same for the rest of Office: Office Reaches RTM!
Time to ready yourselves!
Getting access to the new Project slides is in hot demand these days and voila! (see expect a lot more in the future…)
