The portfolio management and the resource management are the key features.

How has it helped my organization?

What is most valuable?

The number of different things which it is able to do. There are so many different pieces of functionality, and we use almost every single piece from deployment to demand, project, resource, and time management.

How has it helped my organization?

What needs improvement?

We don't really use some of the things that they are improving, because we're still very much waterfall vs agile. A lot of the new functionality that they are adding for agile doesn't pertain to us. However, we constantly put in requests for... more»
