Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
The data provided by PPM is trusted and is available almost immediately; without trusted data there is very less scope of any tool to be successful.
There are so many different pieces of functionality, and we use almost every single piece from deployment to demand, project, resource, and time management.
Scenario comparison is the feature most valuable to us and the reason why we decided to choose HPE PPM over other portfolio management products.
Recent Program Management lifecycle, Program Management aggregation views due to interactive UI (selection of risks, issues, and changes in Program Overview) and “flash look & feel" of this functional chunk, which is different in comparison to other parts of HPE PPM.
The project tracking, resource utilization and the cost are the most beneficial aspects of this solution.
I find the planning features the most valuable to me.
They have begun to improve with the new cloud integration.
It's most useful feature is that it interfaces with Project Server so we can, from my perspective, from a portfolio perspective, we can see across the organization.
Reporting; need to be able to provide fancy reporting out of PPM, way it is done in OBIEE etc.
We constantly put in requests for some of the things we need. One of those is being able to export just our standard request type to PDF.
User interface continues to be poor. The product does not have a similar view in the different modules, e.g., staffing vs financial management, it looks like you are working with a different product and it is not easy to use or intuitive.
Currently, HPE PPM does not allow “Project” approval, but only simple “Demand Request” approval (mobility).
There have been some drawbacks with customization. Some users want it to be an automation tool.
I find that MS Project has limited control in comparison to other solutions in the same sphere.
There needs to be better integration with other Microsoft products such as SharePoint, and the like.
Tech support needs improvement.
The scalability is co-dependent on the stability of the product. We have 4000 users, and at times the product is slow.
The packaging of Microsoft Project Professional is pretty simple as a product. But, the end-to-end enterprise is complex.
Pricing and Cost Advice
Now, we also received an increase in the support license prices, without any advanced notice. At this point, switching to unify all our licensing under HPE and customer support has been poor.
HPE PPM SaaS model is comprehensive, however, the base fee component has customer resistance to its recurring setup,
You do not have to invest much in terms of configuring this solution to suit your needs.
I do not have personal experience with pricing or licensing of this product.
I am not involved with this.
