Adding to OpenProj Success

Hello OpenProj Community,

Serena PPM 2009 R1 with OpenProj Integration

The Serena Team has been working hard over the last year to take the best in class Microsoft Project equivalent project scheduling functionality of OpenProj and integrate it into our Serena Project Portfolio Management (PPM) product. We are proud to announce that we have successfully released Serena PPM 2009 R1 with the integrated OpenProj functionality including the ability to import OpenProj (.pod) project files into Serena PPM. This means you can still use OpenProj to build project schedules offline on your desktop and import your OpenProj project files into our online web based Serena PPM product to collaborate with team members and provide stakeholder visibility. Please signup for a free trial of Serena PPM to try it out.

Star Office now includes OpenProj in Europe

OpenProj is now being included in Star Office boxes in twelve European countries. The addition of OpenProj is important as Star Office competes with Microsoft Office and others in the desktop Office marketplace.

OpenProj is a complete replacement of Microsoft Project which is installed on 7% of all Office desktops. This has been a major competitive advantage until the release of OpenProj which is free and available on Linux, Unix, Mac or Windows. This is significant as Project retails for $999 and is installed on 7% of all Office desktops. The OpenProj solution has been downloaded more than 400,000 times in over 142 countries. A recent InfoWorld review noted "OpenProj performs all the essential tasks you'd do with a desktop project management application. That, and cross-platform availability, would justify Projity charging even a portion of Microsoft Project's $999 price tag. But with OpenProj's free access, it's just one more compelling case for going open source on the desktop." ... read more
