We implemented our solution in the midst of Microsoft's transition from on-premise to cloud-based Project. At the time, all of our Microsoft software was on-premise/server-client based. This made the decision to go with the on-premise option the obvious choice as it would integrate with Exchange, Office, Visual Studio, and Team Foundation which was greatly desired. This integrated functionality has allowed us to streamline our software development, management and support activities with a reduction in issue resolution times by 30% across the enterprise.

We have implemented many Microsoft technologies and have the educational discount so it was very cheap for us to manage and centralize projects using ms project. Everything was pretty straight forward installing and maintaining. We only had one issue.

This is still a tough tool to implement, but when it is implemented correctly, the overall result is satisfactory.

Wasn't involved in implementation but have found system use requires education and knowledge of how to use the system. Additionally, system performance is slow and the system hat to be highly customized to meet organizational needs.

Microsoft Project Server is a wide open platform; Your project management business processes should be decided, and then they can be configured. It is useful to have a "jump start" configuration package to get started, otherwise, we could see that there were a lot of side discussions that could be had concerning PM processes and how to handle them in the tool. When selecting a third-party vendor to help with the implementation, we felt that selecting one that had a jump-start configuration package with some pre-packaged reporting was helpful in getting started. The third-party vendor that we selected did NOT have that, and we wished we had gone with a vendor that had. Also, we attempted to integrate MS Project Server with our ERP and Work Management systems. These integration efforts have not been viewed as successful so far, and also have failed to provide the organization with the anticipated value.

Generally everyone on the project team feel that Microsoft gives us a good-quality product for the money.

The base product was easy to install with little to no support. Microsoft has a great knowledge base to leverage for questions before having to contact them directly. We did encounter hiccups with installing and implementing additonal service plug-ins for the on-premise version. Took many hours and numerous call to Microsoft to determine the root cause and correction steps. As for the product itself, capabilities have definitely been improved from previous versions but there's still work to be done. Implementation of releases for on-prem versions need to be made avaiable more quickly as well.
