One of the major variables to fall under this category will be governance workflows - Project Server 2010 contains a ‘sample’ workflow that can be extended or customised using Visual Studio to meet unique requirements of the business, while maintaining role-based security and access.
Hamilton City Council indicated the need to approach this project in a way where it is flexible, adaptable and scalable to meet their needs both initially and in the future without the need for wholesale change, reconfiguration or loss of data.

This approach required strong input from key stakeholders from Hamilton City Council, who also indicated their willingness to have maximum involvement in the project moving forward.
