One thought on “Microsoft Releases Project for the Web”
The real name of this product is Project for the web, not Project Web. In spite of all of the hype, I cannot imagine how this product could replace Microsoft Project and Project Online. I think Project for the web would be fine for people who are not full-time project managers and who need to manage small and simple projects. But I cannot imagine any way in the world that you could manage a medium or large complex project with this new tool.
