Application Portfolio Management RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Does anyone know if PS2013 has any Application Portfolio Management capability?

    I believe PS2007 did have this (supposedly), but can't find any reference to it in 2013.

    Any advice or redirection appreciated.

    Thanks.

  • Hi,

    You might start by reading Andrew Lavinsky's white paper about the portfolio analysis module here:

    That being said, indeed, back to 2007 version, Microsoft had this Project Portfolio Server product which was (I think) bought from UMT. It required at this time a dedicated licence, but was then integrated into Project Server 2010. I think also some APM features of PPS2007 have been deprecated during the integration into PS2010. Below a couple of links:

    • https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb896054.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396

    Maybe Andrew Lavinsky will jump in, since I was also part of UMT.

  • Hi,

    There were various demos around Application Lifecycle Management (not sure if this is what you want).  PS 2013 is a superset of PS 2007, so if it was in PS2007 it's there in PS2013.  

    There is a piece of functionality called Portfolio Management, which is hidden by default but still available. HTH,

  • Yes.  Portfolio management is built in PWA.  It probably has been disable to make the screen simpler. 

    Go to Server settings and enable the quick launch to include.

    Server Settings/ Quick Launch / and enable Driver Library, Driver Prioritzation, Portfolio Analysis

  • Yes App Lifecycle Management is what I do mean.  Not Portfolio Management.

    Any idea where this demo might exist?
