Micro Focus Vibe Review
The local desktop changes synchronize with the server and are available to the project manager on his mobile.


What is most valuable?

It provides synchronization to the desktop. It also provides mobile access and control.

How has it helped my organization?

One remote location does project management via Excel. The local desktop changes synchronize with the server and are available to the project manager on his mobile.

What needs improvement?

The user interface can be changed to 'look' more like a Microsoft one since this will help market the product more.

The users only know Microsoft. If someone does not know the other choices, there is nothing to choose from. If it looks like Microsoft, it may sell better. Additionally, I do have to credit Microsoft for the user interface.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used this solution for more than five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

There were no stability issues; it just works.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

There were no scalability issues. If properly designed, i.e., a tiered approach is good for larger environments, it is easy to scale with growth.

How is customer service and technical support?

Technical support is good; on a few occasions, we ended up interacting with some developers!

Which solutions did we use previously?

Previously, we explored SharePoint.

How was the initial setup?

Out-of-the-box, the setup is all inclusive; neither of the standard or enterprise versions has feature differences.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is a user-based license. Users outside of the organization do not need a license.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated SharePoint prior to making a decision.

What other advice do I have?

The design and architecture of the solution leads itself to scalability.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
