Summary

With Y2K remediation issues behind them, software development companies and internal IS/IT departments can now concentrate on creating new applications and software systems. Controlling these development projects will be key in terms of containing costs, utilizing resources appropriately and effectively, reducing the time-to-delivery, ensuring quality of the end-product, and identifying and optimizing repeatable processes for use in future projects. The industry is responding with project management software designed to help companies manage resources and optimize processes using Web-based interfaces. Computer Associates' SuperProject and SuperProject/Net are designed to meet these management needs. Significant advances in SuperProject 5.0 include migration from 16-bit to 32-bit programming, an enhanced look-and-feel, threefold communications support, added ODBC and DAO support, and compatibility with Microsoft Project. SuperProject/Net 1.1 offers team-based project management, whether the team is centrally located or distributed across different geographical locations.
