Amazon S3

Amazon S3 meets many of the demands for cloud based backup including some audit requirements for various DoD, HIPAA, and PCI restricted businesses. We store data with various levels of encryption and redundancy for our clients as required by their industry. There are also less expensive options, such as Glacier, in cases where audit compliance is not an issue.

I'd say Workamajig is great for mid-sized agencies like ours. Controlling the way users use Workamajig is important and if our business was much larger it could be difficult to streamline.

Pros

  • The storage is fast
  • There are flexible storage options for even cheaper long term storage
  • "Client" access accounts can be created that look nice to give clients access to their own storage which is stored on my account.
  • The Amazon CLI API makes automating reliable backups possible on Windows Servers. Other consumer based services such as dropbox won't run as a "service" and need the user logged in so isn't appropriate for a database server.

  • Project Request submission. This is a feature that is difficult to find in other Project Management tools, and we have looked at several dozen while researching the latest products on the market. Project Requests allow a project manager to fill out what type of project is needed, then the Marketing Lead would receive an email with the Request data, and easily turn this request into a full-fledged Project.
  • The customization is very good. Workamajig staff will work with your organization to determine exactly what features your team needs, and then customize the project experience catered to your organization. You can choose which data to display, what fields to fill in, how to organize each project, and so forth.

Cons

  • Amazon has it's own JSON format for granular account control and is difficult to implement. There have been improvements to moving that towards a GUI based control system but not all of the features are there yet.

  • It is not an intuitive system. It is Flash-based, so you won't be able to access and run it fully on some mobile devices. There is no drag and drop functionality, and some features are hidden deep behind several clicks. The learning curve is steep.
  • The reporting feature leaves much to be desired. The data that the out-of-the-box reports contain is very limited, and does not offer solid cumulative metrics across multiple projects. Of course there are third-party add-ons that improve the reporting experience, but those incur an additional cost, and Workamajig is already on the high end of price points. Customizable reports are an option, but the system is convoluted, difficult to navigate, and very difficult to update.
  • Managing project timelines is a harrowing experience. Workamajig offers many ways to view your timeline and upcoming task schedule, such as Gantt charts, but the process of updating the timelines when your scope inevitably changes is very tedious. Again, this is a Flash program, and it runs rather slow, and doesn't always do what you want. I've even resorted to using a separate scheduling application (SmartSheet) to avoid managing the timeline in Workamajig.

Alternatives Considered

Several issues with Dropbox where it was hard to set up in the application I was using and once it was set up it would work fine but then become disconnected for really no reason and the support from Dropbox was not that great. The one time that I had to bring back a backup it was slow and the connection dropped several times making it start over again. On the escrow side, I never could get it to link with our software

Customization and Project Request submission were two of the biggest draws that our organization valued back when our contract with Workamajig started. Those two features were deemed more important than some of its inadequacies. However, the project management products have come a very long way in the past five years, so we felt it necessary to move on. We had to modify our department's process of handling project requests and submissions, but the features gained, such as cumulative reporting, mobile access and asset management, have paid dividends.

Return on Investment

  • The data we store in AWS S3 is shared with lot of other AWS account users and the requester pays for the data transfer and we need not worry about the costs to move our data to other accounts.
  • The data in AWS S3 acts as a centralized storage system where in most of our web, mobile and platform API's and applications access the same data without the need to replicate it and with very low latencies.
  • Our algorithm models have been evolved and are at a better place now as the training models have been prepared on the data in S3.

  • Workamajig allows for a more flexible, productive workflow, especially for people working remotely.
  • Team members on a project are more aware of budgeted hours and timelines because of the various alerts.
  • Workamajig is such a timesaver because it's such an easy quick reference on current or past projects.
