Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"It has the ability to scale up, as well as integrate with other systems within the organization to get real-time information from dashboards and reports.""The most valuable features are business process modeling and reporting.""The stability of the ARIS BPM platform is quite good. The nice thing about it is the central database, where we can use all of our data. We can even manage users.""This solution has helped us in terms of discovering business processes.""The ability to sort via multiple criteria to identify the relationships you need for a specific object.""ARIS is probably the most mature product in terms of modeling an enterprise architecture so that it has context.""The initial setup and installation are very straightforward.""The ease of use is the most valuable. I have tried a number of BPMN packages, and I find the user interface of ARIS BPM easier and more intuitive than others. If your team is knowledgeable on BPMN, it is really pretty easy to figure out on your own because it adheres to the standards extremely well. I have tried Bizagi, BizFlow, and a variety of such solutions, and I just liked ARIS BPM better."

"We've brought our portfolio altogether. We have had multiple ways of reporting out what our portfolio is, whether it's in Excel, Word, or in different places. We brought all of our projects together in one place. That has worked out well for us. We've been able to manage the work on Gantt charts and our resources better. The big thing for us on research and development is around managing people's time, on which projects they are working on, and how much effort does it take to launch our projects.""With the lifecycles, it helps us step through our processes easier. We'll take a process and create it in Visio, then we'll go and implemented in Planview. Anytime that we have to do a new process, this is what we use. We just step it through the lifecycles and the configure screens are very easy to use. The fields that you need are easy to use.""Planview has helped connect funding and strategic outcomes with work execution. That is the key use that we have for it. We use it to validate the work that we're doing and the funding that we need. The difference between the previous version and current version for us would be the ICPM and the way it gives us different scenarios. We can go in and build that out.""I like that everyone is able to see the same data. All of our users who aren't just time reporters have read access to all the data that is out there. So, it is one source of truth where everybody can go in and see the exact same data that everybody else sees. It is transparent.""The portfolio management gives you a view of all the projects as well as all the information about the total amount of effort, time, and cost being spent on the projects. It gives the organization how much money and effort should be spent towards projects so they can budget and do better capacity planning in the next fiscal year. It gives them visibility into their resources and if they have capacity.""The biggest impact for using Planview currently would be to understand the true costs of projects. We are trying to get to a point where not only do we take into account technical costs, but what the business cost is. Trying to integrate our business right now into Planview is helping us identify the true cost of the investments that we make so we can try and understand their value.""We have a fairly good picture of time tracking.""The look and feel of it is pretty clean."

Cons
"Making it more customizable and easy to learn would be a benefit.""I would like to see the reporting aspects improved.""With ARIS BPM, the script creation is quite cumbersome. With version ten, we needed our developers to do scripting.""Integration with third-party tools should be improved (e.g. based on APIs).""The governance mechanism could be better, as could automation.""The interface is a little archaic.""The workflow approval process could be represented better in the overviews.""I use it strictly for developing the business process model. I don't use it for the actual automation. I do that with Vtenext. I have standardized on Vtenext, and I don't use ARIS BPM anymore. The Vtenext UI is just as good, and it is much more tightly coupled to the underlying object model. I can get more done in one session with Vtenext rather than first going to ARIS BPM, then importing, and having to edit it for tight coupling."

"Recently, we have gotten on a newer version. We're currently on version 15. Some of the things that we've been running into roadblocks on, it looks like the solutions will be coming out in versions 17 or 18. So, we have to upgrade before somethings can get completed.""I would suggest for the request module that they open up the fields and columns so it's like we are doing our work in the work module. You can't do that with today. We also have to make sure that the fields can go both ways with the request and work modules. Including fields in the column sets would be helpful, because today they only use attributes.""We have required more time from our resource managers to spend time in the tool. The adoption has been slower than we would have hoped. So, I would think from a rollout perspective, if Planview could help us with material which gets non-Planview users or previously light Planview users to become more heavy users of the system, then this would help us with the rollout.""There can be improvement on the sense of urgency because a lot of times we've exhausted everything that we can, and now, we're reaching out. So, it isn't a, "Well, have you tried to reboot this?" We've already done everything. Once we put in a ticket, there should be more of a sense of urgency on it.""I would like to see more documentation pieces. Right now, they do have the content repository. I would like to see more out-of-the-box features with document repository capabilities.""I would like to be able to copy and paste from Excel into work and assignments along with roles and hours, as opposed to having to type it out one by one.""There's still a lot of reluctance within the organization. We're not using all of the capabilities that we have today. We're still doing our strategic and capital investment planning on spreadsheets rather than using the capabilities that exist within Enterprise One. I definitely need to leverage the experts here at Planview to help drive a culture change. There's just a lot of reluctance on behalf of people within the company to put data into the tool.""Our version is definitely set up a bit more waterfall world. It would be better if some of the agile features were more in the standard product."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"In terms of pricing, it would be nice if it were more affordable.""This is absolutely not the cheapest solution in the market, but for large companies, the price is fine."

"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."

Top Answer: I am not familiar with iServer, I haven't used it before. But from what I have read about it, it interacts well with Microsoft Visio and I know that ARIS also interacts well with Visio. So I would… more »
