Microsoft has a plan to clean up its overlapping project-management services
As Microsoft watchers know all too well, Microsoft has a lot of products and services that offer similar and often overlapping features. Sometimes there are so many similar products that Microsoft needs to create diagrams about which product to use when. But it looks like the various Microsoft teams working on project tracking/management apps and services may be getting their act together. MSDynamicsWorld.com reported this week that Microsoft is working to remove its Dynamics 365 Project Service Automation (PSA) product from the business applications portfolio. The plan -- based on info from partners who've allegedly seen the latest Dynamics 365 pricing and licensing slide decks -- is to combine PSA with Microsoft Project and Project Online. "PSA and Project Online are merging into a new project management tool to be called 'Project Service,' Steve Mordue, aMicrosoft Business Applications Most Valuable Professional (MVP) and Dynamics 365 Partner Advisory Council member, confirmed to me when I asked about this. I also asked Microsoft officials for more information about this. No word back so far. Project Online has been part of the Office 365 line-up for the past several years. Project Service Automation joined the Dynamics 365 line-up (alongside Field Service) in 2016, following Microsoft's FieldOne acquisition in 2015, as MSDynamicsWorld noted.
