Growing a Project Management Culture with Project Server & Team Foundation Server

2014 February 2

As many of you know I just recently had a baby girl.  With this bundle of joy, I not only get little to no sleep, but every day it is a new adventure.  Oh the highs and lows of parenthood.  One thing that I am thrilled about is the fact that each day she is learning new things and whether she wants to or not, she is in a constant flux of learning and changing.  Watching her start to see, visualize her curiosity and comprehend that an object is something that she can grasp, then grabbing (and of course putting them right in her mouth), is quite comical.

At Advisicon, one of the key values in creative solution is to believe that any solution is possible, if we can allow the customer and our teams to think about what solution ideas will accomplish those core requirements. With Office 365 and the Project Online solution we are seeing that organizations are now able to afford, manage and take advantage of business technologies in a simplistic way, allowing them to uncover with metrics, processes and key functional workflows that can be improved. read more…
