Microsoft Project: The Bigger Picture

Take the Pain out of PMM

by Matt Smith | 11.03.15

Project portfolio management (PPM) is nothing new. Businesses have been using it for countless ages to keep track projects, hours, costs–you name it. The advent of the PC saw PPM move to a digital format. And as the workforce became more mobile and distributed, PPM in turn became an even more important part of daily office life.

Microsoft Software Support Roadmap

Taking a Look at Microsoft’s Support Roadmap

Are You Prepared for Your Products’ End of Support?

by James Nagurney | 01.22.15

As that old sage Yogi Berra once said, “It’s like deja vu all over again.” Last year around this time everyone was gearing up for End of Life for Windows XP, a popular OS to say the least. Now it’s 2015 and time to bid adieu to another popular operating system. Windows Server 2003 and 2003 R2, still widely used, will be coming off Extended Support on July 14 of this year. Time to start thinking about retiring those older servers. You might also be interested to know that Mainstream Support for Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Server 2008 R2 expired on January 13, 2015.

Bring Your Own (and Be Your Own) Device Within Reach

by Lane Shelton | 11.11.14

Microsoft has embraced “by device” selling for their Windows desktop operating system since what feels like the beginning of time. But change has compounded over the past several years and truly transformed our computing experience. So much so that ordinary end-users (myself included) are lugging around a bagful of devices in order to stay connected at all times. We all want to work and play on devices that we choose to use—not to be hampered by things like file synchronization and compatibility or good taste getting in our way. As a result, we are slowly but surely becoming a community of cyborgs. Finally, Microsoft is listening! We want to bring our own device and even BE our own device. What does that all really mean?

Microsoft Office 365

Office 365 is new territory for Microsoft. It’s a transformational move at the center of their productivity stack. Tried and true products like Office, Project, and Visio are being transformed into online solutions. Right now that’s a mix of in-the-cloud and on-premises, what some call “software plus services.” But the reach is extending beyond the center: now there’s CRM online, Visual Studio Online, SQL Power BI, Microsoft Azure, Azure Active Directory—and the list keeps growing. We all know how that’s affecting the licensing—shifting from “I own it” to “I’m pretty much renting it, forever and ever.” That by itself is a tough choice for many customers to make, and requires careful and thorough due diligence. And while I won’t detail this today (really), I want to remind you to talk to us about our Microsoft License Optimization (MLO) process if you’re struggling with it—we can help.
