We're happy to announce the publish of yet another new white paper by Chris Vanderluis of HMS Software for the "From the Trenches" column in the Project Server 2010 TechCenter and the Project Server 2007 TechCenter. This latest white paper - Enterprise System Best Practices -  describes operational best practices for enterprise systems in general (including Project Server).  It describes how although enterprise systems strive to provide an easy-to-use interface or display at the user level, the technology and infrastructure required to provide it is often very complexed.  This requires you to exercise some basic best practices that can give you the best chance of maintaining a high degree of reliability in your enterprise system.  Make sure to look at this and other white papers in the From the Trenches column, as they are sure to provide you helpful insight into deploying and using Project Server in your environment.
