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

Pros
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.The most valuable feature of this solution is the completeness of the standard, underlying metamodel.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.

Cons
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.Configuring the UI in the content management system is too elaborate and too time-consuming.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.

It would be helpful if there were glossary, catalog and governance tools. It would help make it a true end-to-end product.There should be a better usage of current hardware including multicore CPUs, higher resolutions, and multiple displays.This product does not have a good BPMN Modeler.The data governance should be improved, like ER/Studio.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Our licensing costs are about a quarter of a million dollars per year.Our licensing fees are approximately $50,000 USD annually.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.
