Most Helpful Review
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.
Resource management: The resource management module is very complete and covers most of the time all needs of customers.
We are able to know what we are doing, how much we have spent, how much time we've taken, and it tells us how much money is left for the project. It also tells us whether we are below or above our expenditures, whether we are below or above our budget.
The key things are managing interactions, resource allocation, resource-leveling (enterprise) and as a collaborative tool, because we use it across multiple projects at a time.
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).
It has to be more user-friendly. For instance, there should be some assistance, like when you go to certain sites, people pop up and say, "Can we help you? What are you looking for?" It's not interactive enough.

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,
