Apptio

If you are trying to understand your IT costs and have cost pools and services defined then you are in a good position to move forward. If you are missing one of those items, spend the time getting that figured out before trying to implement the system. You can do that in parallel and use the ATUM model but it will not be an quick implementation. Ask what services Apptio can help with during the implementation process. They have some very good resources that can help provide best practice details from other customers.

Planview Enterprise One (formerly Planview Enterprise and Troux)

PVE1 is ideally suited for a mature enterprise. One with a need to map strategies to outcomes, one with top-down support and direction that will ensure its data integrity and value on a persistent basis. It is not suited for project execution or collaboration. It is best served as the system of record for project intake, resource management, and performance reporting.

Pros

Apptio

  • Service Costing – if you have to buy any module, this would be it! Comprehensive bottom up services cost analysis and reporting.
  • Bill of IT – Great module if you do charge backs. Can also help with Show Back of costs to the business.
  • Vendor Management – Manage SLAs and align those with vendor performance. While there are other products in the market that provide better functionality, this would be for a novice in this space.

Planview Enterprise One (formerly Planview Enterprise and Troux)

  • Planview Enterprise (PVE) provides end-to-end work management for the full spectrum of work types in one tool. Traditional project work can be fully implemented with detailed or summarized WBS, stage gates, workflow management and content management. Non-project work can be tracked in a variety of ways. There is even an option for "ticket" type work. PVE provides 4 types of resource assignments to attach people to work; each with flexible configuration options to meet the need of the organization.
  • Planview Enterprise provides robust Rating and Financial Planning capabilities, and they continue to grow in this area of the tool. Rates can be driven by attribute-based rate cards or by attaching the exact rate to the individual resource. Multiple override functions exist that allow work to be configured with the exact rates when the work is the exception to the rule. All effort data captured in the tool (both from manual entry and/or ported over from the work plans) is converted into financial data with just a few clicks. And, portfolio management of this data is easily delivered on screen.
  • The analytic options available in Planview Enterprise are broad and easily made available to the appropriate audience. They are graphic, but also drillable to the desired level of detail to facilitate analysis.

Cons

Apptio

  • Features are becoming easier to use, but like any software there is a constant progression
  • Getting companies on the right track for not only finding data but collecting consistent data

  • With power comes complexity. Users are sometimes not sure of which screen to use for certain activities. Planview has done a good job of improving the UI over the year but there are still some areas that could be simplified for the users.
  • The financial planning module does not offer enough granularity to track non-labor costs at a detailed level. Costs are grouped by unique attributes. If I want to track the purchase of 10 servers individually within a single project, I need to use a different tool.

I don't believe there is a product on the market as mature in its practice and purpose-built as Apptio is for IT Cost Transparency. It even made the CNBC "Top 50 Disruptor" list for innovative technologies. Its is way ahead of its competition.

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.

Apptio is proving to be a relatively user-friendly product, assuming proper skill sets and training. Enterprise Analytical abilities to support the proper data readiness and implementation are key.

The previous version didn't have as many rich features available on the web (right clicks, sub-menus, etc.) that would have sped up productivity on many screens.

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.

Any issue is addressed correctly within the right amount of time. Sometimes it takes a while to be aligned on the request and to have a solution, but it doesn't happen frequently. There is a ticketing system where I can track all my requests that could be improved a little bit.

Well, so far. Apptio Consulting covered specific model architecting areas particularly. Most of the heavy lifting is being done in-house with support from Apptio as it relates to tool impacts and needs. Some administrative tasks were redundant

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

Alternatives Considered

Apptio

There is no true competitor that is even comparable to allowing the same capabilities and benefits Apptio provides. It is ground breaking in every sense of the word and will make a huge difference for each and every customer. It can be very complex at times, but like everything in life anything worth implementing takes time, effort, and some growing pains.

Planview Enterprise One (formerly Planview Enterprise and Troux)

We made the tool selection back in 2002. Most competitors are now gone or purchased by someone else. At that time they were one of the few companies who had a somewhat mature and configurable budget module. We were also coming out of an Access environment, so we were comfortable with the "Excel spreadsheet" look of the tool.

Return on Investment

Apptio

  • Apptio Technology Business Management has greatly improved our chargeback transparency to the lines of business.
  • Apptio Technology Business Management has reduced our internal processing time for transfer pricing and various monthly reports.
  • We have yet to apply the IT expenses to a business metric within Apptio Technology Business Management but that is on the roadmap.
  • Apptio Technology Business Management has provided valuable cost level reports but we are still struggling to create the high level dashboards within the tool.

Planview Enterprise One (formerly Planview Enterprise and Troux)

  • Planview Enterprise has provided concrete data to support adding members to teams that are over utilized.
  • Planview Enterprise has helped us make data-driven decisions about which projects to continue, pause or cancel.
  • Planview Enterprise has helped us quickly show executives which projects need their attention.
