After implementing Microsoft Project Server and UMT360, project status and resource management in Litgrid became significantly more effective

Our client Litgrid, the Lithuanian electricity transmission system operator which employs more than 200 employees is continuously managing around 60 projects, many of which take several years.

In order to effectively manage the executed projects and optimally use the available resources, informational project management system Microsoft Project Server  and project financial transparency and analysis program UMT360 were implemented in the company. With the help of this system, the tools of document administration, budget planning and registering of actuals were unified – all these actions now take place in a single system which makes it easy to track and manage them. During the implementation project, unified project performance indicators were started to use.

After implementing these changes, project status and resource management became significantly more effective.

Updated: Project Online requirements are changing
MC89200
Published On : February 2, 2017
Expires On : July 30, 2017

Beginning in June 30, 2017, Project Online will require the latest version of Project to connect to Office 365. We are making architectural changes to features in Project Online which impact older versions of Project, connecting to Project Online. Originally, we communicated this would happen on February 28, 2017, but have extended the deadline to June 30, 2017. We made this change based on customer feedback. How does this affect me? If you are using Project 2016, you need to be on a supported build to connect to Project Online. For Project Professional 2016 customers, the RTM build (16.0.4266.1000) is the minimum build. For Office 365 customers using the Project Online Desktop Client (the subscription version of Project Professional 2016), you need to be on the previous Deferred Channel build (currently build 16.0.6741.2088) or any other build that is more recent. If you are using any prior version of Project, you will encounter issues connecting to Project Online. This change will not affect you if you are not connecting to Project Online. What do I need to do to prepare for this change? Make sure you’ve upgraded to a supported Project 2016 build, by June 30, 2017, to continue connecting to Project Online without interruption.
