Luis - Does this question reference a recent article? I'm not sure what the question is here. Do you have insights to share with the community to elicit further feedback or discussion? Thanks!

Dear Andrew
Thank you for participating in this reflection.

That's exactly what I want to know.
If anyone in this forum is using Microsoft's integrated cloud solutions in project management and what impact it is having on the profession.

That's what I would call knowledge sharing based on personal experience.

Dear Andrew, I have gone through the recent article and it is encouraging for a brighter future and more importantly tighter integration. Thank you for educating me to take out some apprehensions I had from prior experience. But I will wait to see whether those issues are really overcome or not when I come across my next new project using Microsoft technologies.

Thank you, for clarifying Luis. This is much more clear and concise. I'd recommend editing the original post with this.

Anyway, I have used MS SharePoint, Power BI, and MS Project together in the past. It was on-premise, not cloud, but nonetheless, I found it very beneficial to share as much information as possible while centralizing and making available that content/information.

Currently, my team use MS Teams, with integrations to OneDrive and SharePoint (SharePoint is the core foundation under these MS Technologies anyway).

The impact is availability and continuity of information, with increased inclusivity.

We have used Sharepoint in the past in several projects from early inception until 2018. We were reasonably successful as the product evolved. However my recent experience in 2017-18 also required a lot of additional work in creating and deriving meaningful information and insights. It took a lot of effort from us as Supplier to configure thereby leading to customisations or additional template creation. I see now some benefits start coming based on recent Microsoft product strategies and evolution. However, in my view, it is too early to comment upon as different industries/sectors have different levels of maturity in project management. But it is the way forward I reckon.

Dear Andrew.
Thanks for sharing your experience and for your suggestion.
Is it worth changing the question?

Hello Luis

Integrating MS Sharepoint with MS Project is possible but lots to be considered before doing so. One of the pain is to always have to match the versions. For example:
- SharePoint 2013 requires Project Professional 2013 Desktop
- SharePoint 2016 requires Project Professional 2016 Desktop
- SharePoint Online requires Project Online in Office 365

Then, the next question is why do you wish to integrate these 2 tools? Is it because of security measures and role segragation in MS Project not sufficient for your use?

My opinion is to use MS Project to be the PPM and then add AI on top of MS Project to obtain additional benefits. For example, once connected via API to an AI tool, you get the benefits of the speech-to-text and deep learning.

Happy to further discuss with you.
Edward

Thank you for participating in this reflection and for your opinion.
Have you tried such a solution? ( MS and then add AI on top of MS Project) are the results?

Hello Luis

I had experience in the past to work with SharePoint and MS Project, but not using AI, which is something I am developing right now.

In my past experience, the only reason why we are using this method of SP/MSP is because of the stakeholders and the sponsor. While project managers are very confortable of using MS Project, not a lot of folks that are not project managers will say that it is easy to use at first. Some of my previous stakeholders were part of a management team and they did not wish to leave from their confort zone, which is using SharePoint for data entry and data sharing. Therefore, I had to buid integration between to push and pull data into MS Project.

Going forward, I believe my solution in AI will simply eliminate such redundancy. AI with speech to text will be used as the tool to communicate between systems.

Hope this helps.
Edward
