This is the introductory post of a three part series. In it I will give my view on what (Microsoft) product matches your expectations on Project Management software. I will include my own experience and links to Microsoft pages or other blogs to give you a complete overview.
Edition 26-10-2016: I did another review, this time for Microsoft Planner. Please find the link in the list below.
In these posts I will take a look at the products Microsoft Project Professional and Microsoft Project and Portfolio Management (PPM for short. This used to be EPM in earlier versions of the product). But I will also look at Excel, because most people I talk to have (in a earlier live) used Excel to manage their schedules and projects.
I will give points to every product on a number of levels like ease of use and collaboration in an organization.
Here are the direct links to the posts as they come available:
- Best tools for project management: Microsoft Excel
- Best tools for project management: Microsoft Project Professional
- Best tools for project management: Project Server or Project Online (PPM)
- Edition 26-10-2016: Best tools for project management: Microsoft Planner
