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

Pros
The most valuable features are the project, resource, and portfolio management processes are combined in one solution. The data is possible to use either in the one or the other process, and we do not need to enter the data multiple times.The competency and available support are quite good, therefore we do not have any issues with support. Every time that we have a case where we need support, it is clarified right away.it creates visibility across our whole organization. People that were often left in the dark wondering what was happening with projects. Now have an easy solution to see all the information they want to see across the whole portfolio.It's definitely improving our ability to make better decisions, and improving the quality of data that we have, to make the decisions for the strategic good of the company.The new UX is great because it has helped remove some of those barriers, so that people who are not classically trained project managers can easily get up to speed in using the tool without having to learn a whole other tool set. It's very intuitive, and very collaborative, and very easy to adapt to their existing work styles.Allows us to track all of a project's elements in one database.What has been valuable are the workflows that are there today in order to keep our executive staff informed as well as our program managers and department managers.Within the SaaS environment (since CA is supporting it), it has been extremely stable and reliable.

The product's centralized database creates a single source of data for working groups so no data needs to be reconciled.The dashboard is the most valuable feature. The user experience is very good, it's easy to use.The developers can simplify tasks and each one of them can undertake a task and then they continue with development. Our processes are more efficient and easier for our manager and developers to track them. Their work is more organized.With JIRA, you can do amazing things by developing connectors, embedding features, and adding new fields to create new things.The solution is very stable.The graphics and the resolution of the work are very good.In a PC environment, it is quite stable.

Cons
It would be good for them to work on the user interface to make it more interactive.I wish patches would be quicker since we're a SaaS customer, and just be a non-event, so we don't have to go through a whole - essentially - upgrade cycle, just to do a patch. As a SaaS customer, I'd like the patch to just happen.When we upgraded to 15.1, we had some challenges around Jaspersoft, and also some issues with supporting some of the complex process work flows that we had designed internally, that were affected by some changes in the process engine.Needs Gantt to MS Project link.The look and the feel of 14.4 is a bit antiquated.The Work Breakdown Structure in the Tasks: I should be able to drag and drop to a level three instead of just stuck at level two.The classic UI is very cumbersome. It can do everything but it's hard to use. It's easy to use once you understand it, but it's intimidating at first for somebody to see the solution.I think there's still a little bit of opportunity that we can do some stuff better in relation to the financial part of it; just that easier integration, that look and feel. Our project managers, and obviously finance people, love to interface and use of Excel. The more we can get CA PPM to behave in a similar way, which we're already starting to gain in that path, will be absolutely fantastic.

The product could do with more flexible reporting.The initial setup could use improvement.I think that front-end development is a little bit buggy in some cases. Some of the features take a while to respond and some need to be more clear.This solution is not able to be integrated with other solutions because you have to upgrade it and pay for more licensing.n the next version I would like to see better reporting and safer plugins, as well as easier scalability.If I get a feature but there is not a user story, and I want to know which epic it belongs to, it is really hard to figure out.When I want to embed Jira Portfolio in a complete HLI cycle, I'm missing things to evaluate my ethic into my value stream.

Pricing and Cost Advice
We're also moving to the latest version for less than $20,000 for a major corporate system. It's just amazing.It is hard for them to say, "I have a person on my team who is going to be available, I am going to move that task to them". That requires a project management license, it doesn't require a team member license, so the licensing model does not sometimes support the way the business world is going.

The pricing continues to get higher.We only have nine people using it so we have a standard cost of $150 dollar per year. There are only additional costs if you exceed the limit of users, then you start paying by user. The cost is significantly higher.The pricing of the solution is expensive.This solution has a comparable pricing in comparison to other similar products on the market.
