Project Sites in Microsoft Project Server 2010 - What is missing?

Project Sites in Microsoft Project Server 2010 - What is missing?
In many of our Project Server 2010 Implementations we see that people are not using project sites to the full extent. Most store documents, risks and issues - but usually that's all.

Is that a lack of knowledge how to use sites? Is that a lack of functionality? What is missing there to make Project Site an important and useful instrument for team collaboration?

In next posts I will try to provide a series of posts and videos abount working with Project Sites and Templates, customization and management.

Cloud. When Project Server and SharePoint will be there?

Cloud. When Project Server and SharePoint will be there?
Found interesting article -

I was surprised by "cloud first" approach for government. This is extremely good push for the cloud companies and if government goes to cloud - big companies will follow as well into both private and public clouds, and we will see decreasing number of on-premise deployments. The problem I see is that every company uses "cloud" as they understand it..and often it is just a marketing buzz for the "reshaped" old infrastructure.

In our practice - we tired of on-premise deployments, permissions, limited access, non-standardized configuration and troubleshooting all that. We want to go to some centralized and standardized model - it will make our life easier and products more stable.

Microsoft goes there with Office365. The question is - when the full versions of Project Server and SharePoint will be cloud-enabled? Will happen? And another big question - what would be the limitations for the products and platform? (current SharePoint in Office 365 is ugly and very limited). Time will show...
