This chapter describes the components of a Microsoft Enterprise Project Management (EPM) Solution. This material is written for executives, managers, and system administrators who are responsible for planning the deployment of an EPM Solution.
An EPM Solution that is based on Microsoft Project Server 2010 is deployed across multiple tiers: a client tier, a Web tier, an application tier, and a database tier. Applications and services in each tier provide for availability and scalability, which enables any size organizations to manage projects of a range of sizes and levels of complexity. You can configure the application and database tiers of your EPM Solution to best meet the needs and requirements of your organization.
Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 is a necessary part of the EPM Solution for Project Server 2010. It is important that you include planning for SharePoint Server 2010 as part of your EPM Solution deployment plans. For more information, see Planning and architecture for SharePoint Server 2010.
