Hosted Project Server
Built on SharePoint Enterprise technology, Hosted Project Server is a flexible and cost-effective online solution for Project, Program and Portfolio Management (PPPM). Whether you have one user, or hundreds, get your team up and running rapidly with an industry leading system, delivered from the Cloud on a simple “per user, per month” charging model.
Project Professional Integration
If you need even more horsepower, you can connect your existing Microsoft Project Professional application to Hosted Project Server for a seamlessly integrated solution.
Integrated Desktop Application Delivery
If you don’t have Project Professional already, then that’s also no problem. By leveraging our own APPSPOINT™ HDE technology, we can provision your users with the Project Professional application, running securely in our data centres and accessed seamlessly from your user’s desktops and mobile devices.
We use this same technology to also deliver report design tools (such as Business Intelligence Development Studio, SQL Server Report Builder and Excel), SharePoint Designer and Visio to your users.
Flexible Deployment Options
Not all PPPM solutions are alike and some organisations simply have custom requirements that cannot be met with a multi-tenanted shared service architecture. To meet the needs of such organisations, we are able to deploy dedicated instances of Hosted Project Server.
For customers with simple reporting requirements, we offer a low cost “shared infrastructure” option, whereby we deploy a customer-specific SSRS & SSAS instance on one of our shared BI servers. If your Business Intelligence needs are more serious, then we can also deploy dedicated SSRS & SSAS servers, sized to meet your specific requirements.
Hosted Project Server users can be deployed in one of two modes:
Full User: Has full access to the Hosted Project Server environment. Also contributes 1GB to the customer’s storage entitlement.
SharePoint Only User: Does not have access to Project Server, but can access the associated SharePoint content (e.g. SharePoint site content for a given project).
In addition to this, any Full User can be published with the Project Professional app via Hosted Desktop Enterprise at a special reduced rate. Any user with the Project Professional app published, can also be given access to additional applications for report authoring and site customisation.
Hosted Project Server Instances
By default, each Hosted Project Server customer is provisioned with a single instance, but additional instances (e.g. Dev/Test, or for a different business unit) can be provisioned upon request for a simple additional monthly fee. Existing users can then be granted access to the additional instances at no extra charge.
Note the customer storage quota is shared between all Project Server instances & sites.
