Description

Microsoft Project is a project management system and a way to optimize portfolio management, which allows you to plan and control project activities of organizations.

Compared with other similar programs, the MS Project is considered the most common and “easy” to refer to the initial level of project management software with a classic standard office interface. In the single-user and small solutions market, the software product takes about 80% (about 20 million people use it).

It is believed that as an integrated set of methods, processes and tools for planning and monitoring projects, MS Project is more often used in the implementation of relatively small project ideas. However, the existence of several paid options - basic, professional and advanced - when choosing the most complete functionality allows you to significantly expand the capabilities of the program compared to the basic version.

Another focus of the "detuning" is the specialization of the product. Among such software, Primavera is popular, which is widespread in the field of engineering and construction projects as a means of calendar-network planning, which allows to take into account financial, material and labor resources in medium and large projects. Basecamp software cloud tool is considered the main competitor in the segment of ultra-light management decisions. At the same time, Microsoft has also been offering a cloud version of its product since 2013.

In addition to the cloud application, several products are available under the Project brand:

  1. Project Standard allows for individual planning for small projects.
  2. Corporate management is carried out with the help of a special platform, including:
  • Project Server,
  • the corporate version of Project Professional, where collaborative tools (Project Server and SharePoint Foundation / Server) are added to the capabilities of the Standard version,
  • the technology of the web interface of the reporting of executives on the progress of tasks, for viewing project portfolios and other collaboration (Project Web Access).
