Microsoft has announced its plan to launch Microsoft Project Operations that will gradually replace the Microsoft Dynamics 365 project service automation module. The Dynamics Project Operations module will be rolled out around October 2020 and will combine the capabilities of Microsoft Project and Microsoft Dynamics 365 Project Service Automation module. The module will give visibility of different processes related to projects. The module is also said to deliver cross-team collaboration and reports that will enable the resources involved in the project to operate seamlessly. The users of Project Automation will be given around four years to switch to Microsoft Project Operations. If the users have the license and are not using project service automate module or PMA capabilities within the Finance module then they need to notify the Microsoft authorities before 31st Dec’20.

Why a new app for project management?

Microsoft has plenty of project management apps namely Microsoft Planner, Microsoft Project, Microsoft Dynamics 365 Project Service Automation module and Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations. The range of applications made it difficult for businesses to have visibility of all the project aspects. Organisations are undoubtedly keen on using the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Project Service Automation module but are also constantly asking for something comprehensive.

Microsoft has declared that the Project Service automation module will receive further developments and the Project Operations will merge the capabilities of Project service automate and Microsoft Project. The new Operations module will give insights of every aspect of any project starting right from when the quote is submitted to the project analytics.

What will the existing users of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Project Service Automation module need to do?

I understand that the news of Project service automation soon to be merging with Project operations seems to be daunting at first, but this is in the best of our interest. The integration of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations and Project Operations will enable project teams to bill the finances and the invoices. For the businesses who don’t currently have the Dynamics 365 license, Microsoft Project Operations can be the push to get the license and solve all the business challenges that they are facing. Furthermore, Project Operations is built on Common Data Service and hence can be easily integrated with Power apps allowing the employees to engineer customised apps.

The migration from Microsoft Project Service Automation module to Microsoft Project Operations can be difficult. You can seek expert’s help such as Exigo Tech who is a Microsoft Solutions Partner to get the data switched from one module to another. We can help you manage the licensing part as well. To ensure that you’ll able to use all the latest capabilities of Microsoft Project Operations to keep your business processes in place, call 1300 EXIGOTECH (394 468) or email us at .
