We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"We are on the Flex licenses."
"We have unlimited licenses for all of our functionalities. Since we went global, we went with that model."
"The cost of other pieces and integrating them in needs improvement."
"We have portfolio managers, resource managers, project managers, and time reporting licenses. These are the licenses that we have."
"I don't think we have necessarily purchased everything that I would have liked to have seen."
"We have several hundred licenses. It costs us several hundred thousand dollars a year."
"We overbought our licenses. We looked at our needs three to four years down the road and tried based our contract on that. However, we were over aggressive. We use about a third of the licenses that we have. We're looking to adjust the makeup so we can start utilizing the amount of money that we are spending. Right now, we're overspending, and my organization is not seeing the value in Planview because we are paying so much for licenses that we're not using."
"Our licensing costs are probably $150,000 to $180,000 a year with 270 licenses total."

Business processes rely heavily on IT. You’d think there are measures in place to coordinate these processes, but actually the opposite is true: in practice, many processes are not optimally supported by IT and there’s little collaboration. According to research firm Gartner, eighty percent of malfunctions in applications are the result of errors caused by change. Changes to IT cause misunderstanding in the workplace. If one work process changes, it has a knock-on effect on IT and your applications. Processes, applications, data and infrastructure are inextricably linked. Moreover, a lack of coherence causes a proliferation of data and applications.
