#MSPC12 Day Two and Three Further Sessions, Networking and Outer Space! #MSProject #ProjectServer

So on to the last two days of the conference…

Keynote Day Two

Initially Chris Crane discussed further how important partners are to the Microsoft Project eco-system.

Then Ludovic Hauduc, General Manager of the Project Business at Microsoft (Who has been involved with Project since 1994) discussed how he has moved from developer to his current role and how Microsoft themselves use Project, Project Server and its Portfolio Management capabilities to manage the future development of the product.

As part of his speech, he highlighted that Portfolio Management within EPM solutions was once seen as a technique for those with high project and portfolio maturity, causing an ivory tower affect.  Now, however with Project Server 2010, Microsoft has successfully brought this functionality to the masses in an easy to use interface improving the maturity, focus and success of project run on the SharePoint and Project Server 2010 platform.

Other parts of the presentation discussed the ease of use connecting Microsoft Project 2010 to the cloud with Office 365.  This was demonstrated to the audience…
