Microsoft partner ProModel creates software to help business solve complex problems.

In this video, ProModel Product Manager Kevin Jacobson talks with ISV Architect Evangelist Bruce Kyle about how ProModel's Enterprise Portfolio Simulator extends Microsoft Project to help project managers analyze project portfolios.

Kevin explains how the team migrated from a traditional thick client application to a more client server application. He demonstrates how Silverlight and ASP.NET are used to help users create "What if" scenarios. What if I applied more resources? What if I could delay a project?

ProModel uses Silverlight as a rich user interface into simulations built on top of Project Server without changing the underlying projects. Users also visualize quickly view simulations across an entire portfolio of projects.

ProModel's Enterprise Portfolio Simulator is built on Windows Server 2008 R2 with a user interface migrating from ASP.NET to Silverlight.
