  • Hello TooManyHats

    I would contact your preferred vendor for a cost estimate.  To many variables, such as hardware platform, number of users, number of prooject managers, consulting for migrations, training, etc., etc., etc.

    Cheers!

  • I emailed Dell for a quote.

    But I won't know the legitimacy of that quote, unless I hear examples from the community.

  • For licensing estimate you should contact your Microsoft representative.

  • Let me ask another way.

    Would someone have some links to an independent source that discusses the costs of a project server 2010 installation?

    I don't mean to be a smart alec, but you have heard from a very competent Microsoft Project Server consultant (Michael Wharton) and from a very knowledgeable Microsoft staff member (Christophe Fiessinger).  Both of them have given you the same answer:  you need to contact your Microsoft representative in order to get an accurate cost amount for the purchase of Project Server 2010.  So, I would strongly suggest you follow their advice and contact your rep first to get the purchase price.
     
    Beyond this, you may also want to enlist the services of a competent Project Partner to assist you with your implementation.  There is no standard cost for implementation services, so you would need to select a Project Partner and then negotiate with them for the services you actually need.  Beyond this, I do not know of any independent source that can tell you the costs of a Project Server 2010 installation.  Hope this helps.

  • A rep will sell you anything, whether you need it or not. Many of them don't know the requirements of each rollout. I don't mean how many users, existing infrastracure and those kind of details. I mean the simple things like Project Server 2010 requires Sharepoint Enterprise CALS additvie to every Sharepoint Standard CAL.

    A link such as this is helpful for Sharepoint

    http://www.sharepointconfig.com/2010/05/indicative-sharepoint-2010-licencing-costs/

    So just like a Technet deployment scenerio or a programming walkthrough or a power user "how do I video". 

    I was simply look towards Microsoft themselves as the guiding authourity and leader in creating purchasing scenerios which would guide an RFQ.

    Christophe, can you be my representative?

    I find your attitude toward Microsoft's representatives for Project Server to be puzzling at best.  To date, I have personally known four Project reps.  Two of them are/were in Denver, one in Phoenix, and one in Sacramento.  All four of them are sharp as a tack.  None of them would try to sell you anything you don't want to buy, and every one of them would know the exact questions to ask you to give you an accurate quote.  I would not hesitate to send any potential custom to them.
     
    I know I cannot speak for everyone, but I hold these four in the highest regard.  So, if you want a quote, I would still suggest that you contact your Microsoft rep.  But, if you can get anyone else to give you a quote, go for it my friend.

  • I don't understand what you are going on about Dale. Are you not confusing resellers with implementation consultants? Heck Best Buy and the local drug store are resellers.

    No, I am not talking about resellers.  I mean that you need to talk to the staff member who works for Microsoft in your region and who is responsible for selling Project Server 2010.  I AM NOT talking about people who work at Best Buy, for heaven's sakes!  I simply do not understand your reluctance to talk with the Microsoft staff member who can answer your question.  Hope this clarification helps.

  • Oh,

    Where and who are Microsoft staff members? I didn't know I could talk to them except here and by creating a support case, this sounds good. How do I contact one of them?

    Assuming you live in the US, navigate to the following URL:
     
     
    Click the name of the state in which you live to locate the region in which you live.  On the regional page, locate the nearest Microsoft district office.  Call them and ask to speak to the person who handles the sales of Microsoft Project Server.  They should be able to help you with the process of pricing the software you seek.  Hope this helps.

  • Thanks, link does not work, it would not help anyway, I would need the Canadian link, of which I have never seen one. Hence the confusion in this thread.

    Refer to the following:
     
     
    I'm sure you will find a Microsoft regional office somewhere near you in Canada.  Let us know how the cost thing works out.
