Innovative-e at Microsoft PPM Summit in Atlanta

Microsoft and select partners, including Innovative-e, held a free one-day summit in Atlanta on May 11. This summit was a chance for executives, project managers, and project team members to learn about the power of Microsoft Project across different workloads and industries.

Microsoft’s PPM Summit was an opportunity for attendees to gain critical PM insights, discover new solutions, and network with their fellows.

Innovative-e’s Mike Taylor (President) and Eoin Callan (Managing Partner) were among EC at ATL PPM Summit May 2017the presenters at the summit.

Innovative-e’s presentation, “Transparency & Adoption: 3 Steps to Creating an Amazing PM Solution,” showed attendees a simple and straightforward approach to solving complex project, process, and change management challenges when implementing large scale Integrated Master Scheudle (IMS) PPM systems.

Mike and Eoin discussed how Innovative-e provides its customers with continuously amazing PM experiences.

MT at ATL PPM Summit May 2017

  1. Start quickly
  2. Achieve Winnable Wins
  3. Sustain Adoption

Innovative-e’s approach to creating and implementing an amazing solution for its customers is transparent, iterative, and disciplined and follows this equation:

Value = Transparency x Adoption.

 

  • First, we always seek to leverage OOTB (out-of-the-box) Microsoft PPM platform feature functionalities.
  • Then, if necessary, we implement Best-in-Class third-party add-ons to fill any gaps for productivity, process automation, and reporting.
  • We focus configuration of solutions around role-based specific business process needs to optimize value and adoption.
  • Finally, as a last resort if necessary, we develop code to meet specific business requirements, always leveraging Microsoft-compatible APIs using disciplined development methodologies.

How can our approach enable you to transform your PPM solution? Drop us a line at info@innovative-e.com and let us know your pain points. The first three respondents will receive a free consultation (worth $500!).

30K Projects!

Innovative-e, a Microsoft partner with a Gold PPM competency, is always on the lookout for ways to make #AmazingPM even more amazing for our customers. Microsoft is continually improving, too. Recently, Microsoft announced some exciting improvements to Project Online.

30K projects Proj Online

  • Project Online was previously limited to 5,000 projects – that max has now been raised 6x to 30,000 projects!
  • Additionally, project sites were previously capped at 2,000. That limit has also been bumped to 30,000, and will scale on a 1:1 basis with the number of projects in the PWA.
  • More fine-tuned control over where project sites can be provisioned is now available. For example, different site collections can be specified for different EPTs so that project sites can be logically segregated.
  • Some OData performance enhancements have been made, which should improve SSIS pulls.
