Fred Sahakian says in a LiquidPlanner review
Training or Education at a government with 1,001-5,000 employees
LiquidPlanner is a great tool for Getting Things Done enthusiasts and project managers in general. It allows you to break down your project into multiple steps with best/worst case time scenarios and then gives you a complete picture of the project timeline and tasks in an easy to understand format. The reminders are fantastic! I have used it has a professional with a paid account, and also as a university student with a free academic account. I have used the timer function to record how much time I am spending on a task so that I can bill clients or to just to have it for future reference, it's a nice feature! Uploading documents really makes sharing and keeping things in a central location very handy. View full review »

ITManaged83b says in a CA PPM review
IT Manager at a tech consulting company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Right now, it's the PPM piece of it, the scheduling, the Gantt, the task view. It gives that full visibility to the team. But we're wanting to take that further and start building upon the financial piece of it, doing extracts from contractors to employees, to determining resource planning and future planning, and doing "what-if" scenarios.

ProgramMa975 says in a CA PPM review
Program Management at a tech vendor with 1,001-5,000 employees
Transparency and just having the ability to procure information that is pertinent. Not just the execution of programs in a more systemic way, but also from a strategic perspective; to understand the big rocks in the organization and how much money are we putting where our mouths are.

Mariana Liberato Canales says in a CA PPM review
Sr Project IT Leader - Project Management at Honeywell Aerospace
The best thing is one single source to capture all our IT project information. We are a very big company all over the world. We have all the data in one spot. The product is easy to access, easy to compile and pull up reports, with everybody working to the same tool. Training makes it easier. There are other things that we can add-on or we can expand upon. Because we're going to be implementing Agile, Agile Central, there are benefits of using the software as a service (SaaS) as a service platform We don't have to accommodate physical infrastructure for it. It's maintained on the cloud. People can access it anywhere. It makes it a lot easier too. We have people all over the world. I'm sure cost is probably a big benefit as well for us overall.

Aimee White says in a JIRA review
Website and EComm at a local government with 10,001+ employees
Perfect for keeping track of large amounts of bugs, tasks queries and releases for fixes. The SaaS does the job it is supposed to: helps you keep track of your projects. What I like most is the ease of adding users and the obvious nature of what they need to do - drag and drop is always a win. It is cross methodology so Scrum, Kanban... it doesn't matter, you can use JIRA. I like how it shows the sprints remaining. Being able to instantly see where you are in a project and what is coming up is invaluable. Also, the ability to link a programme of projects is very helpful. I can see where all of the teams are with their individual projects but also how they fit into the overarching business plan for the year. View full review »

Anaya Struncova says in a JIRA review
Software Developer at a tech vendor with 201-500 employees
The most valuable features or functions that I have found in this software are several but mainly that it is a platform that gives the user the option to customize its interface to the point that it can be fully adapted to the team that implements it. This generates a great advantage since it is much easier for users to adapt to it and be able to work in a much more comfortable and highly effective way, in addition to providing tools that can be followed up on tasks or projects and give priority to them. It is really useful because in this way the team can focus on those who need a much closer delivery date. View full review »
