Microsoft Project Online

+ Azure DevOps

FluentPro Integration Hub is a leading cloud-based integration platform for connecting Azure DevOps in Microsoft Project Online and synchronize project updates in two systems.

It provides better protfolio visibility, optimizes reporting and collaboration between executives and development teams, improves SAFe compliance in Agile-driven enterprises, and automates project management data flow within the organization.

Business Case

More and more organizations see the benefits of the hybrid approach to project management combining Agile methodologies with Enterprise Project Management practices. However, when implementing such approach on the enterprise level, it may become an issue to keep Agile execution teams aligned with high-level PPM initiatives.

As soon as the project is initiated on a portfolio level in Project Online, Agile teams need to break it down into work items, as well as define iterations sprints in Azure DevOps. It’s important that they use Agile-specific tools for their daily work while major project updates are pushed back to  Project Online.

If the Project and Portfolio levels are disconnected, it may result in low portfolio visibility, poor accountability and substancial regular manual work needed to provide views on project and task progress to the leadership.

Solution

FluentPro Integration Hub helps to:

  • synchronize project data updates in Azure DevOps and Project Online
  • establish a unified portfolio view of all project initiatives
  • improve coordination and management of hybrid projects where Agile is combined with EPM practices
  • automate status reporting, bringing greater agility to your business

Create tasks in Project Online and automatically push them as new epics, features or other work items to Azure DevOps, so that each team can use the right tool for their job and the data can be automatically synchronized between systems and teams.

What Happens When the Integration Runs?

1. The data synchronization link is established between projects in Microsoft Project Online and corresponding projects or work items in Azure DevOps, with the needed field mapping.

2. All the new and modified projects, tasks or other work items in one system marked for synchronization are pushed to the other system depending on the integration scenario and by the pre-configured schedule. For example, if you update the task in Project Online,Integration Hub will push these updates to the corresponding work item in Azure DevOps.

3. Data mapping entities on all new or modified tasks in one or both systems will be updated every time the sunchronization runs  depending on your configuration and integration schedule.
