We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"In general, Planview's cost structure is reasonable. You get quite a lot of functionality for the license cost that you get."
"Going forward, I think we will want to explore adding more licenses."
"The solution has reduced our testing costs."
"Microsoft is a big challenge for Micro Focus when it comes to pricing because they are much cheaper. But it definitely depends on the complexity of the environment. If it has multiple technologies, at that point, looking at other options and Microsoft would be a feasible approach."
"The comparison is always with Jira, so the pricing of Octane is a bit on the higher side. But if you look at what you have to add to Jira, on the plug-in side, to have the same abilities you have with Octane, you're more or less even, or even ahead with Octane."
