Reason 2: Project plans take a long time to open
Project Server 2003:
Project Server 2003 uses ODBC protocol between MS Project client and server. Operations such as Open, Save requires a roundtrip between client and server. Each time project is saved, the entire project plan must be sent to the server.
PMs are experiencing long delays when opening and saving project plans that are stored on the server.
Project Server 2007:
Project Server 2007 uses a web services protocol with local cache mechanism on the MS Project Professional 2007 client; MS Project send only parts of the project that have changed back to the server, instead of the entire project. This also eliminates multiple roundtrips between server and client when saving more than once.
Project Managers will notice a significant performance improvement when opening and saving project plan, when compared to prior version.
