"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Project Server is an add on to Sharepoint and users can use Project Desktop or the Web to manage and collaborate  projects.

Thanks for the update, would like to understand if we subscribe for Project Professional on-premises is it a standalone installation on each desktop and also if installed in 04 desktops can these 04 users will be able to collaborate, please suggest based on this will have to make decision to go for Project Professional OR Project Server.

to collaborate you need server.  The web app functionality is limited compared to the desktop version.  The clients normally are stand alone but you can set them to connect to the server.
