Join us to learn about a new Microsoft Project 2010 capability the Backwards Compatibility Mode (BCM), which helps you accelerate deployment of Project 2010. With BCM, various desktop and server versions of Microsoft Project can seamlessly coexist and exchange data. BCM exists on Project 2010 desktop applications and Project Server 2010, and in certain scenarios, BCM makes it possible for Microsoft Office Project Professional 2007 to access Project Server 2010. We advise to view the “Project Server 2010 – Upgrade and Migration” webcast prior to attending this webcast.

Project Server 2010 – Coexisting with SharePoint Server 2010
Wednesday, April 21, 2010 8:30 AM Pacific Time (US & Canada)
The new Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 Enterprise Edition is now a requirement for running Microsoft Project Server 2010. For all practical purposes, Project Server 2010 became a SharePoint 2010 application. In this webcast, we discuss two scenarios: 1) deploying a new enterprise project management (EPM)-focused farm with Project Server 2010 and SharePoint Server 2010 and 2) deploying Project Server 2010 into an existing SharePoint Server 2010 farm, where the original capacity planning and design assumptions need to be reviewed to determine if the changes to the existing SharePoint 2010 farm architecture are needed prior to adding Project Server 2010 to the farm. This webcast is part of a seven-part series that provides Microsoft Project Server 2010 deployment guidance and best practices for IT professionals.
