PPM Services: Extension & Customization

Microsoft Project is very extensible and flexible to meet your needs through configuration. But you may have needs that take you beyond the out-of-the-box capabilities, and require extension and customization to meet your needs.

Western Principles can get you there two ways.


Microsoft Power Platform

Power Platform

The Microsoft Power Platform can be used for extending and customizing capabilities in Microsoft Project.

  • Power BI analytics provides capabilities to easily create new dashboards that help you make decisions and drive action.
  • Power Automate is used for creating workflows that move data between systems, create actions, or raise alerts.
  • Power Apps is used for creating forms and workflows — such as for Change Requests.

The Power Platform uses the Common Data Service (CDS) as a powerful cloud-based database.

Western Principles has experience in delivering PPM extensions and customizations using the Power Platform.

Add capabilities with partner products

Western Principles recommends the use of partner products.

These products are created as best-in-class and fit-for-purpose solutions that are fully maintained. They extend the use of the Microsoft Project platform to make it do things that it cannot do on its own.

Western Principles is a partner with these product companies and we both represent and install and configure their solutions alongside Microsoft Project.
