The [white paper](https://www.advisicon.com/download/whitepaper/choosing-microsoft-project-server-2010.pdf “download the whitepaper as a PDF”) was created to shine some light on critical elements related to the discussions, decisions, and adoption of Microsoft Project 2010. Companies are looking to better align strategy with financial planning and look to their corporate diversity, regional presences and departmental structure for the best way forward. The purpose of this white paper is to address some of the main factors for scalability, best practices, and opportunities for creating wins from the potential challenges often faced when implementing a solution such as Project Server 2010.
