In Depth Information
The ability to see, on an enterprise-wide level, how resources are being
allocated (as in Figure 18-1, where you can assign resources with an eye
to the big picture)
A perspective on all the projects in the company, which can help
management prioritize and strategize overall enterprise efforts
A greater capability to collaborate among projects
More efficient methods for resources to track their time on project tasks
without anybody having to reenter the information in Project
using all the
at a glance.
If you have a company LAN or intranet, you can set up Project Server and
Project Web Access to deliver all these benefits and more.
Not every member of your team has to have Project installed to interact with
it as long as he has access to your LAN or intranet, access to Project Web
Access, and appropriate network permissions.
The downsides to Project Server with Project Web Access include
The cost for licenses
The time to install and maintain the server as well as to train users
The need to ensure that projects are handled in a uniform way across
your enterprise (If you don’t do this, the information you receive
through Project Server may be inaccurate and out of date.)
