Bimodal IT With a Unified Microsoft Agile & PPM Solution

Project Management Institute (PMI)® Professional Development Units (PDUs):This Webinar is eligible for 1 PMI® PDU in the Technical category of the Talent Triangle.

Event Description:

Most organizations today are delivering both agile and traditional projects within their project portfolio. In many of these cases, the “portfolio” isn’t a single portfolio at all; software/product development is managing their projects with agile tools, and the PMO continues to use Microsoft Project to manage theirs.

A separate project management tool for each line of business; sounds like a good idea right? While disparate systems may be focused, relevant and work specific, they can also make decision-making and strategic alignment almost impossible. The good news is, these problems can be overcome if you are using Microsoft Project Online. This session will provide a brief agile overview, a comparison of agile and traditional project management, and include a demo of Project Connect. This webinar will demonstrate how Project Online supports enterprise-level analysis and reporting for data residing in both Microsoft Project schedules and agile tools, such as Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS), Team Foundation Services (TFS) and JIRA.
