    Project 2010 Service Pack Update


    Some of you may have seen the recent Office blog post from the Microsoft Office sustained engineering team.  In that post, the Office and SharePoint teams disclosed that Service Pack 1 (SP1) will include some minor updates and should be expected in the usual time frame of 12 to 18 months after the products launched.

    I wanted to let readers of this blog know that Project 2010 SP1 will also be a part of the same Service Pack.  In addition to some minor updates, SP1 will contain a rollup of the updates we post every two months here.  Our guidance is the same as the Office and SharePoint teams, those customers thinking of deploying Project 2010 should not wait for SP1 and should deploy now and see all the great benefits that customers like Marquette University and Amdocs are seeing.  You can see even more Project 2010 case studies here.

    To get you started on Project 2010, check out the Project Server home page.

    CapGemini Posts Review of Project 2010


    I want to take the opportunity to point you to a review of Project Server 2010 from CapGemini - a strong global partner building a strong Project 2010 practice.  The review is very thorough and, best of all, is available as a free download from CapGemini.  The Microsoft EPM 2010 Functional Review gives a great overview of the latest features and functionality in Project Server 2010.  A few excerpts from the report below:

    We believe that the portfolio management process incorporated in EPM 2010 is really a best-in-class solution . . .

    We find reporting in EPM/SharePoint 2010 very powerful and considerably easier than in many other PPM platforms, including . . . CA Clarity.

    The breadth and strength of the Microsoft SharePoint collaboration platform give the Microsoft EPM platform its greatest competitive advantage.  No other PPM product supports the range of solutions that the Microsoft EPM platform can support.

    A couple of weeks ago, I also blogged about our recent placement as Leader in IDC’s most recent MarketScapes on Enterprise IT PPM and Application Lifecycle Management views here.

    I encourage you to give these reports a read!
