 Project Professional 
is the desktop project management program that can be used with
 Project Server

 Project Web Access
to form the
 Enterprise Project Management 
(EPM) Solution.
 Project Server 
is the flexible platform that supports the portfolio management, resourcemanagement, and collaboration capabilities in the EPM Solution. Project Server enablesorganizations to store project and resource information centrally and consistently.
 Project Web Access
is the Web portal that enables you to connect to the project andresource information that is stored in Project Server and collaborate on projects. Teammembers who need access to Project Server information but do not require the schedulingcapabilities of Project Professional—can use Project Web Access through a Web browser to view and analyze information.In this lab we would be learning to use only the “Project Professional”. “Project Server”and “Project web access” are not installed in the CIS servers.
