Christophe Fiessinger's Blog Updates on Microsoft's Enterprise Social Networking (ESN) and Project Portfolio Management (PPM) offerings
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…)

Following recent webcasts, sessions and articles during the past month about The new Microsoft Project please find key content I’ve noticed. If I’ve missed any please let me know and I will gladly add to this list.
In the meantime happy reading and watching!
As announced by my colleague Jan Kalis: Don’t miss the unique opportunity – register for the new Project Ignite now! we have a great 3 day agenda for you at three locations (Sydney, Australia; Reston, Virginia, USA and Warsaw, Poland) in the coming month.
I truly believe this is a historical moment for Microsoft Project and Project Server and hence readiness is one of the key to success so don’t wait anymore and REGISTER today!
As announced last week: Visual Studio 2012 released to the web! Start your download today of Visual Studio 2012 and Team Foundation Server 2012 (see this post Team Foundation Server 2012 and Project Server 2010 Integration). What to learn what’s new, read product guides, etc. go here. Developers Developers Developers!
I’m looking forward to see many of you next month at Tech.Ed Australia #auteched, September 11-14 on the Gold Coast and at the next Project Ignite training in Sydney September 18-20.
First Brad Purdy and I will be delivering my favorite topic these days: Microsoft Project Online Overview. Looking for reasons to attend Tech.Ed Australia? I’ve put a few here, don’t miss it!
Secondly, we have put a very solid 3 day agenda and content you cannot miss to get a head start on The new Microsoft Project: Project Ignite Tour starts in September 2012! Register now! (registration link at the end of Jan’s post). There are so many things you need to learn and ramp up on (i.e. Project Online, new app marketplace, deeper SharePoint integration etc.), it would be a mistake to miss this face to face training opportunity!
See you next month!
Following last week’s RTM announcements for Windows 8 and Visual Studio 2012 I have been upgrading a few PCs including one of my favorite demo virtual machine: Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2010 and Project Server 2010 Demo Virtual Machine (patience the bits will be out soon!)
After a quick upgrade of my host demo laptop to Windows Server 2012 Standard, I upgraded my VM from Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2010 SP1 to Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2012. High level procedure followed:
Yes no more separate Feature Pack to download! As you can see on the picture above there is a “Project Server Extensions” folder at the root of the installer.
An voila after a few minutes the TFS & Project Server demo VM is fully functional (see below) with the latest Visual Studio 2012 version! Good job product team
If you have any questions please leverage this dedicated Forum: Team Foundation Server and Project Server Integration
PS: yes TFS 2012 also integrates with Project Server 2013 Preview and that will be the topic of another post in the future…
Have you leveraged Project Online and the new timeline sync capabilities yet? Try it today. See this for more information: Project Online: In the cloud with Office 365!
