We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The most valuable feature of this solution is the completeness of the standard, underlying metamodel.We do a lot of big projects which are pretty expensive to structure the product development around and see the progress. Every time we start a project, we have to expense the spends for certain amounts. We need some baselines, like predictive versus actual.The most valuable feature for me is the ease and customizability of reporting.It gives us the vast ability to churn out-of-the-box reports and have an overview about approach rates and resource utilization.The most valuable feature of this solution is reporting.The integration stuff from tool to tool, like Projectplace to Planview, to manage projects is the most valuable feature. It keeps all our tasks up-to-date. It closely follows up with everything, which is really cool.The most valuable features are the resource management, the time sheet entry and usage, and the financial planning. With our projects, we primarily focus on resource assignments, as far as determining the actual forecast and actuals of our projects. A lot of it is based off of the resources utilized on those projects. The time based helps us capture the actuals. The amount of time people are spending on working on their project tasks. Because they've built this into the schedule, so we can build the forecast. With financial planning, we're able to look back on what our variance is and if there is anything between the scheduled forecasted hours, dollars against the actual hours, and the costs that they utilize.Our reporting is much better. There is much more visibility on projects, schedules, tasks, and in our milestones. Now, we have a consistent way of reporting out to the committees and getting all of our schedules and milestones.

Having the ability to create dashboards in PPM Pro on the reporting flexibility for our leadership. Behind that rigor, you have to report out, and I love that part of the tool. It's really easy. It's a lot easier than it was in the past to build reports. Having that flexibility to build several reports, then create a dashboard and publish that on a regular basis to our leadership team is a very valuable and saves a lot of time. That's one of the best features for me as a PMO leader. That time savings means a lot, so I only have to concentrate on it once a month. Looking at the dashboard rather than having to be in there every single day, because I know when I'm making updates, that's going to roll up to my dashboard.The most valuable feature of this solution is reporting.In my current company, it provides a quicker ramp up to understand what it can do for people by taking away all their barriers to entry: time, managing resources, and linking projects.The most valuable feature of this solution is that my team can use one tool that's reliable, scalable, and provides the leadership team visibility to what's going on.It is flexible, because so far we haven't been able to figure out anything that it cannot do. It's highly configurable. We've added custom field design screens to fit our needs, develop reports, and dashboards that give us the ability to deliver much better information, especially to senior IT management.Flexibility is the most valuable feature of the solution. We're able to do a lot of integrations with ConnectWise, which is another IT services tool that we use. So, we can integrate with that, and it's pretty flexible. We just went live a couple of weeks ago, but already we're able to bring visibility into our resource utilization and project status with clients.It has helped us make good decisions in terms of what projects to take or how to prioritize projects when we have multiple directors from the business or product. It has definitely helped us prioritize and work on our critical things.Time tracking, portfolio management reporting, and what-if analysis create visibility into project planning, resource capacity, and demand planning.

Cons
Configuring the UI in the content management system is too elaborate and too time-consuming.The technical people are very competent, but there is so much turnover in the people that we talk to, and that's frustrating. They will say, "We can make this work." Suddenly, that guy has left, and we have no one. Then, we have to start all over.I would like to be able to integrate with Oracle to supplement what we're currently doing with reporting.The UI needs improvement. The UI should have more possibilities for users who are not specialized in using Planview. At the moment, it is more of a technical UI. I would like it to be an open user UI.Some of the out-of-the-box reporting is not immediately useful and although it can be configured or customized, there are still improvements that can be made.We had issues with the data rephrasing.I would like a bit more flexibility, as far as the configuration, and have additional capabilities to configure, making it more flexible for our use.Sometimes within the application, when you pull a report, it takes awhile performance-wise for the reports to pull up.

I would like to be able to promote from the sandbox into production any changes, otherwise you're redoing all of your work.This solution does not work well as a task management system because it is very difficult to expand beyond just the basic tasks, and this would be a worthwhile area for improvement.I would like to see integration with third-party applications, like the JIRA, Microsoft Project, and financial applications.Integrating with other tools should be easier and more straightforward.Connecting funding and strategic outcomes with work execution is a challenge right now for us. Part of what we are facing is we have a couple of drivers of where projects are coming from. One of them is our innovation group. They are just sort of tangentially using PPM Pro for recording the status of projects and not really planning them within there. We need a stronger link between our current financial reporting system and Planview PPM Pro, so we can start to more easily record our external costs in the tool.The biggest things are the status notes and internal notes. They have made some great improvements these past couple of weeks, but they are still lacking a bit. There are still a little kludgy. It just needs to be a bit more straightforward with notes, copying and pasting. They've made huge improvements, but it still could do some work. E.g., for some reason, the formatting is still looking a little bit weird on selecting different fonts.We don't use their existing dashboard functionality. Hopefully, with the new reporting release that is coming out in November, we will be able to evaluate as to how we can leverage that. What I hear, "Everyone has either a Tableau or something else because Planview doesn't provide a dashboard." We should not need to use another tool. Planview has the data, so it should be able to give us what we want. This would also reduce costs since we are paying licenses for those tools too.The initial setup was a little complex. There is so much to customize. It'd be good to have some templates out-of-the-box.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Our licensing fees are approximately $50,000 USD annually.Our licensing costs are about a quarter of a million dollars per year.With the costs, they were very understanding. Knowing that we were an existing customer, they were very much willing to work with us to make sure that we were able to transition to Enterprise One from PPM Pro.We recently did a new bundle for all of Enterprise One. It includes some of the newer pieces, like Projectplace and LeanKit. It bundled our CTM in with it as well. I think the total came out to be about $900,000 a year. This is for unlimited licenses.In the time that I've used it, we've doubled up the amount of dollars on our intended projects.I think all in we are at $33,000 a year and that includes Projectplace and Planview. We used to have the integration to JIRA, but we don't pay for that anymore.Our licensing costs are probably $150,000 to $180,000 a year with 270 licenses total.I don't think we have necessarily purchased everything that I would have liked to have seen.

We have about 50 PPM Pro user licenses, so 50 team licenses. We have eight stakeholder licenses and 10 full user resource manager licenses in PPM Pro. We also have 60 Projectplace licenses. That runs us about $37,000 to $38,000 annually.The team users are about $480 per user, per year. The full user licenses are $900 or $950 per user, per year. The stakeholder licenses were $60 per user, per year. We don't have any requests users, but we have not instituted our intake process yet. However, I think request users don't cost an additional license.Because we have PPM Pro with Project place, we transitioned to the Flex model.We have their Flex plan.The cost was in line.$6 million has been the return on investment so far, and that was because of work intake. Now that we are scrutinizing the work intake and asking questions like, "Is there an alternative to your $10 million project?" We had one project come in for $10 million, scrutinize it through our gate review process, and wound up with the alternative, which was $3.8 million. So, a $6 million savings.
