Quotes From Members Comparing Micro Focus PPM vs Microsoft Project Server

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
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.The portfolio management and the resource management are the key features.

Cons
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).Portfolio scenarios: This is a very powerful feature. However, it’s limited to analyses.I was not involved in the initial setup. I know that the project involved a lot of consulting that took a long time.

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,It is SaaS without a base fee.Support and license management are two hurdles for us. Every time we purchase new licenses, it has taken us half a year to implement those.

I think they need more flexibility with licensing, because there are preconceived ideas that don't allow as much flexibility with the various licenses.
