With the release of a new product and a major acquisition under his belt, Mike Angiulo, general manager for Microsoft Office Project, will give the opening keynote at its first user conference in some eighteen months here Oct. 29.
The address will concentrate on the release earlier this year of Office Project 2007 and an update on the acquisition of UMT, Angiulo told eWEEK ahead of his keynote.
"In the past, many people felt that Project wasn't a product for them because it was oriented towards very structured types of projects," he said. "One of the major changes we made in Project 2007 is to be able to handle all work across an organization. So we have professional services firms using the product at scale to track things as simple as a consultant on site with a customer."
