Munich, Germany. January xx, 2012 – Visitors to the Microsoft Project Conference 2012 in Phoenix, AZ, will be able to see for themselves how international companies have implemented their project management solutions. At the world’s largest event for the Microsoft Project community, TPG – a Premier Sponsor – and its customers will show how they use the Microsoft project management system. The South African mining company Exxaro and the Finnish chemicals group Kemira will be presenting their multi-project management solutions based on Microsoft Project Server 2010 and SharePoint. They will also show their SAP integration using TPG PSLink, the world’s leading product for automating data synchronization between SAP and Microsoft Project. As a full-service provider of enterprise-wide project management, TPG will also be showcasing TPG PMCS, a complete solution for the construction and energy industries that is also based on the Microsoft Project and SharePoint environment. The Microsoft Project Conference takes place from 19 to 22 March in Phoenix, Arizona.

At the world’s largest Microsoft Project Server event, the Redmond-based software giant and conference organizer will be providing several networking opportunities to allow visitors to share experience and information. Decision-makers and technical specialists will have a multitude of opportunities to glean valuable input for their own Microsoft Project environment from a wide range of practical presentations, Microsoft Project courses or just in the coffee breaks when chatting with other delegates.

TPG and two of its customers are making four presentations that give interesting insight into their work with the Microsoft project management system along with the TPG solutions. Exxaro, a South African mining company, will explain to conference attendees how it has standardized project management for its various types of mining projects using Project Server, SharePoint and TPG PSLink. Kemira, a Finland-based chemicals group, will report on its goal of a fast implementation of the project management system, including SAP integration, at all of its R&D facilities around the world. This system now enables the firm to control project costs much more effectively. TPG will be presenting TPG PMCS, a solution based on Microsoft Project and SharePoint for managing large projects in the construction and energy industries that is already being used successfully in these sectors. In TPG’s fourth presentation, the company will provide ten top tips on how best to implement multi-project management with Microsoft Project Professional.

“The Microsoft Project Conference is the largest and most important event of its kind and TPG was also a premium sponsor at the last conference in 2007,” says Stavros Georgantzis, Managing Director and founder of TPG The Project Group. “At that event, the opportunity to interact with a top-flight audience and the valuable contacts we were able to make on an international level left no doubt in our minds that we would be a premium sponsor at the next conference. With our four presentations, we’re putting the focus on the customer perspective and showing how our customers use Microsoft EPM, SharePoint and our own products and how they have integrated their EPM solution into their SAP or Primavera environment. We’ll also be giving our recommendations on the best ways to introduce and use EPM and SharePoint in practice.”
