When you have many projects with different people on them Actionspace is well suited to handle that

Planview
Planview Portfolios allows the ability to establish strategic goals, set financial targets, and then associate work so that business areas can easily see current forecasts compared to baselines. Lower-level resource management is handled nicely within Portfolios, allowing Resource Managers to pivot the assignment data quickly to do a variety of analyses. There is room for improvement in the ease of connecting Ideation to Delivery. Companion tools are available but it does not flow smoothly between applications. I would rather have Ideation embedded within Portfolios so that projects can be created/aligned more easily.

  • 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.

We are long time Planview users and its availability is only limited to our internal SLAs for nightly backups. I have never experienced any unexpected or prolonged software downtime from Planview itself.

Going through proper channels of support is fine for minor to moderate issues. However, lately the critical issues that arise have been frequent and the standard support cases do not always seem to relay just how critical these issues are and we have to utilize our customer rep to help escalate. Fortunate to have that escalation method.

Always have a pre-implementation meeting or conference call with Planview to ensure all are on the same page, disclosure of all and any customization (including reports) and plan for support after implementation of a specified amount of time with the assigned implementation resource. And document everything

Odoo, like this platform, has allowed us to efficiently organize our projects so that they can be prioritized by importance, to know which is the most urgent, in addition, it has also allowed us to assign work in an organized way among our collaborators, and their reports have allowed us to improve.

Planview
  • The positive impact is the ability to manage our projects enterprise wide.
  • Managing and reporting on projects and programs via portfolios makes it easy to identify troubled projects/programs that need immediate attention.
  • The negative is that pushing too much change too quickly is hard for us. We need to get our users focused on the basics of PM before we can adopt everything else. We need to introduce change to different companies based on their maturity level. Too much change too quickly is not always beneficial. We need to focus on core competencies.
