Great visibility of asset assignment to user but not so good if you track also assignment of user rights through CI for users. It would be nice if you can group types of assets/configuration items to user not to show everything mixed up. There is great options to adopt product to your particular needs, there are options for adding some special fields in process automation to help to have tailored process from enduser fill in forms to complex workflow which utilises various specialists

I work as a Hospital Manager and in our hospital we need various equipment and advanced machines that can diagnose the best and give us the best results so that we can analyse the patient's best possible condition. Getting new machines and types of equipment is not an easy task we need so many planning the funds for the projects and implementation of those machines can become challenging part if we don't have a proper roadmap of resource management, funds, vendors suppliers, etc. Here Planview Portfolio smartly computes the all data counts all the variables and gives us the best roadmap to follow it is very useful to get crucial projects in organizations. If the organization doesn't have multiple projects or they work in a monotonous way then this tool might not be the best option for them.

Cons
4me.com
  • It is easy to do first deployment in wrong direction - maybe there should be better guidance how to setup services/service instances to properly work at the end.
  • Reporting is based on predefined templates - to get most of them you have to properly implement services in IT - it is not an easy process
  • Integration with O365 for out of office would be helpfull

  • this is the area I can see Planview Portfolios is very much lagging behind. If you see Atlassian, they are having a robust API information and using that we can securely access the necessary information based on the role. I think a similar kind of approach need to done in Planview Portfolios as well.
  • User Information and Resource information is separate. Expecting that, during the User creation, when a resource is linked, automatically all the basic fields should be populated with the values, also if a person is having an User account there is no way for that person to know that what User role that he/she is having. Also none of the reports covering that details.
  • Automation - It's mentioned using the UiPath some of the Automation has been done in the User creation but don't find any necessary document for better understanding.

We have been a Planview customer since 1999 and have seen it grow and mature as a tool. We have looked at other tools and have found that PV continues to meet our needs and is easy for our resources to use. They work to stay up on the project management industry and the direction it is going, keep on on current technology so that we can work more effectively, provide excellent customer support and have great pricing for what they offer. We can purchase only the modules we need versus buying a tool where we would only use a portion of the functionality.

Usability

Tool has built-in automation module which helps to more precisely define user requests or workflow condition. This from one hand gives end-user easy and understandable forms to fill in, and from other had it ensure all needed information has been fulfilled for further steps in workflow. Once you follow service principle which is base for that tool it will help you to track in detail your business and your partners
