More Micro Focus Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) Pros »

"I find the planning features the most valuable to me.""The project tracking, resource utilization and the cost are the most beneficial aspects of this solution.""Dependencies (not typically effectively used in "Agile" techniques) allow understanding of actual project status and challenges.""The most valuable features of this solution are dependency management, milestone progress, multiple resource rates, and RAG views.""The most valuable feature is the Auto resource leveling tool because it shows students that often, expert resources get over-scheduled, and that dealing with the issue by just using the auto-resource leveling tool would have a large impact on the delivery date.""The most valuable features of this solution are the scheduling, managing the resources, budgeting, tracking the progress, viewing the progress, reporting, and it is very easy to use.""The pricing is pretty good on the enterprise agreement we have.""The solution is very complete. It makes it a great option for project managers and they can use it extensively in almost any organizational setup."

More Micro Focus Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) Cons »

"I find that MS Project has limited control in comparison to other solutions in the same sphere.""There have been some drawbacks with customization. Some users want it to be an automation tool.""This solution needs more templates focused on types of projects to ease setup.""I would like to see the inclusion of multi-currency support.""I would like to have more access to templates and tools that could be used to teach project management best practices.""This solution needs more customization.""The technical support could be improved. They are okay, however, they could be much better.""Microsoft's solution isn't really a collaboration tool, however. If you need a collaboration tool, you can use Slack, which can be integrated with your JIRA."
