Websites

This page contains all the websites that I found of interest on the subjects Microsoft Project, Project Server and Project Online, that are not blogs. These are mostly companies that are providing value to the visitor.

Projectum (http://www.Projectum.dk/en)

The company I work for, with offices in Denmark (3) and in Amsterdam. I just recently started working here but have a great time working on a very interesting client. You can read more about my switch from JSR to Projectum on the post I did. If you like to know more, please feel free to contact me via LinkedIn or anywhere else and I’d be happy to fill in the blanks.

TPG The Project Group (http://www.theprojectgroup.com/en/)

The company that focusses on integrating Project Server with other (financial) systems. They have created tools like PSLink and Resourcelink to get information to PPM and export data to systems such as SAP. They have a great back office, and an awesome team that is keen on helping out.

FluentPro (https://fluentpro.com/)

FluentPro is another company focusing on building software to integrate with Project Server. Their FluentBooks tool is a very elegant solution to migrate configuration, resources and schedules from one environment to the next. Other products include a ready to go PPM environment, a BI solution that just looks amazing and an auditing tool.

JSR (www.jsr.nl/)

The company I used to work for (for 7 years) as a consultant. Reading books and blogs can only get you so far in knowledge. But at some point you have to get your hands dirty. And with JSR I did a lot of training, brainstorming and implementing with Project, Project Server and Project Online. Situated in Zoetermeer they provide services to all kinds of organizations in the country, with the occasional trip to other EU countries.

Tumble Road ((http://academy.tumbleroad.com)

Tumble Road is one of the few companies in the world that has a focus on creating great project reports and dashboards. In the Academy (follow the link for more info) you can find a good deal of interesting PowerBI training courses, specifically related to getting data out of your Project Online or Project Server environment.

UMT360 (http://www.umt360.com/)

UMT360 as the leading provider of Enterprise Portfolio Management solutions is helping organizations to rationalize and on ongoing basis optimize investments across siloed and diverse Enterprise Portfolios and align them with Business Strategy. UMT360 digitalizes investment planning and controls across business and IT portfolios – like Applications, IT Services, Programs, Projects and Products and delivers the transparency needed to make smarter decisions and drive performance. JSR, as a partner for UMT360 has a special page.

EPMA (www.epmainc.com/)

The company with a hell of a lot of MVP’s (Microsoft Most Valued Professionals), including Dale Howard, shame on you if you don’t know who he is. The site has a great team and blogs about MS Project and project management on a regular basis. For instance have a look at Tom Henry’s posts, I particularly like his video blogging. Clear, to the point and good information on a subject, like resource leveling. Sure there is more to leveling resources in complex schedules, but this is a great starting point.

Edit 2016: Tom Henry moved on from EPMA, and now has his own YouTube Channel: Go have a look!

MSProjectExperts (http://www.msprojectexperts.com/)

“World Leader in Microsoft PPM Books, Courseware, and Training” enough said I would guess. This company provides books like Implementing and administering Project Server 2013 which I reviewed (more on that later).

TechNet (www.technet.com/)

TechNet is by far the most extensive and accurate site for everything technical on Microsoft, written by Microsoft (and partners). Every consultant, designer, administrator should at least have multiple links to TechNet articles in their favorites. An example of the great content. It’s an old article but holds a good reference to almost all keywords within Microsoft Project.

Bonnie Biafore (http://www.bonniebiafore.com/)

Author of many books and I’m proud to say even author of a guest post on my blog. She was even gracious enough to give away 2 books to lucky winners of a contest we held on the blog post. Apart from being an author she also has a very well received Project 2013 Essential Training course on lynda.com. If 5 hours is all you have to learn MS Project 2013, you are in trouble, but will get very far by looking and acting according to this course.

Project-courses.com (http://www.project-courses.com/)

Michael Belfry is a active blogger and trainer for Microsoft Project, located in Canada. I know Michael from Twitter @MichaelBelfry. In August 2015 we worked together on a guest post that talks About the Work Breakdown Structure in MS Project. If you are located in Canada, and you do happen to see him… say “Hi” from Erik.

PMConnection (http://www.pmconnection.com/)

Jack contacted me a while back, asking if I wanted to share some of my articles on this website. It’s a site that collects good articles on MS Project, Project Server, Project Management and everything related. Here is a great summary of all the Video’s from the 2014 Project Conference.
