Munich, Germany (PRWEB) November 6, 2004
The Project Group, one of GermanyÂs premier providers of add-in products and consulting services for Microsoft Enterprise Project Management (EPM), today announced ResourceLink, the companyÂs new data integration module. The Project Group is known for its unique and innovative EPM add-ins, and this product is no exception. ResourceLink contributes to productivity improvements by accelerating the import of data from different sources into Microsoft Project Server. ResourceLink will start shipping at the beginning of 2005.
ResourceLink enables customers to import data from any combination of sources, including Navision, SAP, Active Directory, SQL Server, LDAP, and file systems.
ResourceLink is unlike other existing products for importing resource data because:
Âit supports all of the Microsoft Project Server resource properties
Âits rules can be flexibly configured according to customer preferences
Âcustomers can choose the principal system for each resource property
Âimports can be scheduled.
The development team at The Project Group put particular emphasis on the speed of synchronization while they were developing the XML-based product. Before the real data is imported, customers can perform a simulation to test the process, and each task is documented with detailed log files to facilitate analysis afterwards.
ÂWhile we were developing the SAP Connector Solution Starter for Microsoft, we had the idea of developing a really powerful and centralized product for importing data from several sources,Â said Johann Strasser, The Project GroupÂs president and development director. ÂResourceLink meets a widespread need for companies to make productivity gains by automating the update process.Â
