Online Project Management
Online Project Management Applications
One natural application for the Internet and Web 2.0 is ‘Software as a Service’, commonly referred to as ‘SaaS’.
And one very useful example of SaaS is Online project management.
Already there is a proliferation of websites offering hosted project management services.
Much of the marketing hype focuses on improved productivity and communication.
For me the benefits are more aligned with ease of use and not having to host your own company wide application on your own IT infrastructure.
Because it is a hosted service, there is no need to buy or install expensive software. And no need to maintain it.
