How has it helped my organization?Visibility into our portfolio is critical. We had no idea there were 151 projects going on. Having that visibility has allowed us to say, "Wow, how can we possibly be doing a 151 projects with 200… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?We have about 50 PPM Pro user licenses. We have eight stakeholder licenses and 10 full user/ resource manager licenses, and 32 team member licenses in PPM Pro. We also have 60 Projectplace licenses… more»
What other advice do I have?Talk to other customers who are similar to you but also outside of your industry to get insights. I think it's very valuable. Come to a Horizons conference in advance. I did that before we made our… more»
Which other solutions did I evaluate?I evaluated Wrike, Workfront, Workzone, and one other vendor along with Planview. I have worked with Planview in the past and kept going back to the Planview product because it had the most features… more»

What needs improvement?Integrating with other tools should be easier and more straightforward.
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?Because we have PPM Pro with Projectplace, we transitioned to the Flex model. It was necessary because our adoption rates, specifically on the Projectplace side, is… more»

What is most valuable?The most valuable feature of this solution is reporting. It is one of the biggest things for PPM Pro because we do all of our resource management within it, including the timesheet tracking and financial tracking, and a lot of that all rolls up. We have lots of dashboards built out, and we… more»
How has it helped my organization?This solution is valuable because it saves us a lot of time from having to consolidate. Before PPM Pro, we didn't have a good way to consolidate our actual costs from an IT department. This has made it possible to capture all of those, plus mix in outside costs just by putting them in manually and… more»
What needs improvement?Managing a project at the executable level is very difficult using PPM Pro alone, so it is necessary to use one of the integrations such as LeanKit of Projectplace. This solution does not work well as a task management system because it is very difficult to expand beyond just the basic tasks, and… more»
What other advice do I have?There are changes in the product roadmap that I am excited about, including improvements to the reporting and enhancing the dashboards. I think it will help a lot. My advice for anybody who is researching this type of solution is that Planview is definitely a good option. Whenever you're setting… more»

How has it helped my organization?It's taken us from being a very disparate organization around projects to all focusing in now on each other's needs. Before, we would work in silos and everyone would spend a lot of capital on these projects. What we are finding today is… more»
What needs improvement?Every time I think of something it's almost like magic, they implement it before I can even suggest it. They're in the walls, right? At this point, everything I've ever wished for has come true with PPM Pro. Now that we're just starting up… more»
What other advice do I have?I would give PPM Pro a rating overall of nine (out of 10). What would make me feel like it were a 10 is a simple, silly thing, but if the application had a little more color to it. It's very monochrome. With the advent of a Kanban boards… more»
Which other solutions did I evaluate?We did look at other products. We looked at Primavera, which is Oracle's product. At my previous job, I was with Hewlett Packard for 20 years, so I looked at HPE's product PPMC. Then, we wound up on PPM Pro for a couple of reasons: * It's… more»
Nov 04 2019
What is most valuable?It makes clear what people are working on. It is not just for managers but it is also for the people themselves. They are able to see and say, "I am on this project, and it's official. My manager… more»

What needs improvement?Anyone can go in and jerry-rig it. We would like the tool to be more locked down.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?We were using something called PDWare. People hated it. Then, we had a team that went out and looked at the other things out there. I'm not sure of all the things that they considered but when they… more»
What other advice do I have?We are not using Projectplace. We have been using JIRA. A lot of our technical teams is still using JIRA and most of the type of stuff is happening in JIRA, then we do a lot of the PMO stuff on PPM… more»
Which other solutions did I evaluate?I would rate it at about eight (out of 10) only because we've been using it for two years but there have been some growing pains as we are learning how to use it and getting the team adopted. I… more»

What other advice do I have?The product has grown a lot in terms of the resource management, what-if analysis, and now, in terms of the intake process. I've also seen a lot of Spigit. Planview is now able to integrate with other… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?We were using a blend of products. We're using a Microsoft Project, Microsoft Planner, and Microsoft Teams. There was nothing that tied them altogether. We looked at trying to implement some… more»
What other advice do I have?It is a solid eight out of 10. We do not use PPM Pro with Projectplace.
Which other solutions did I evaluate?We tried other tools, like Microsoft Project, Microsoft Teams, and Microsoft Planner. What I like about PPM Pro is it puts all of those tools together into one integrated platform. So, you have a good… more»

Helps make good decisions on what projects to take or how to prioritize them, but we have had ups and downs with the support
What is most valuable?I like the resource demand capacity planning module. I don't think we are using it to the fullest potential yet. There is a lot more benefit that we can get if we use it right. I have seen the dial… more»
How has it helped my organization?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… more»

What other advice do I have?I would rate it at somewhere around a seven out of 10. We haven't used some of the functionalities, so that is where I'm not going too low on the rating. It definitely serves the purpose of what we… more»
Which other solutions did I evaluate?The top contender was CA Clarity versus Planview. We went with Planview because Planview had a lot more flexibility than Clarity. Most of the attributes are configurable. We can change it to our own… more»
