Microsoft has unveiled the latest releases of its Office Project 2003 product suite.
The software giant said that the project management software, which integrates with Office, is due for commercial release this autumn.
It will be shipped in two variants: Office Project Standard 2003, a stand-alone desktop client application; and the Office Enterprise Project Management (EPM) version.
Core elements of the applications include Microsoft Project Professional, Project Web Access and Project Server.
Microsoft said customers of the EPM version will see enhancements addressing data security, time reporting and risk management. Users should also find improved project portfolio and resource management functionality, greater reliability, and a development platform that makes it easier to create customised reports.
Chris Capossela, general manager of the Project Business Unit at Microsoft, said the new features are based on customer feedback. "The Microsoft Office EPM solution incorporates those suggestions into the Microsoft Office System to create a solution that brings enterprise project management to more people," he said.
"We expect these changes to spur greater adoption of project management across companies and increase our customers' productivity and efficiency."
