PPM 8 Installation

Are there any dummy guides to installing PPM8. HP Documentation does not provide information on where to start and the order for configuring the various modules.

We are in the process of commencing installing PPM v8 and are having some difficulties in understanding from the configuration manuals what comes first.

Hi Susan,

If you've already installed PPM Center and are getting to the configuration of the different modules, then it's pretty much up to you what order you go in according to your business requirements & which modules you'll be using.

Re: PPM 8 Installation

We have installed PPM8 onto a development environment, we haven't used PPM previously and are not sure where we should start in relation to doing the configuration. We have all of the modules installed and wanted to know if their is a logical sequence for doing the configuration - ie. resources first, portfolio, security etc. Unfortunately we have not been able to secure a resource who has implemented PPM at present.

Susan,

Where are you located as you should leverage an experienced consultant to ensure you are going about things in the correct sequence for your requirements.

Susan, they're all sort of inter-dependent so you will probably end up iteratively configuring them as need for more security groups, etc arises instead of going in a set sequence.

Hi Susan,

PPM8.0 Installation guide talks about the 3 steps
-> Pre installation - all the system requirements
-> Duing Installation - How to Install PPM8
-> Post Installation - Verfiy your installation

Configuration wise you can do the setup in any of the order once installation is done.

Cheers,
