Cons
It may be considered expensive.In terms of tech support, it took a long time for them to resolve a ticket.When a lot of users logged onto the site, it took a big toll on the service. Therefore, there is a scalability issue.Work needs to be done on collaboration with SharePoint.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.EPM 2010 UI seems a bit dated now that 2016 is available.Permission management needs improvement.
