Bubble PPM

Bubble PPM is well suited for anyone who manages product related projects, especially new product development. As we've matured in our implementation of the system we found that it is great for managing all projects, but the specific strength is product development to launch.Bubble PPM would not be as appropriate for use as a CRM tool, as the references to people are best suited to users within the organization

SAP Portfolio and Project Management

Once SAP Portfolio and Project Management is configured then it is easy to use. Initial configuration and enabling additional features is time consuming. The best advantage of this software is that it allows us to manage multiple projects and multiple teams at same time. File uploads and download is very easy. KPI and status report can present with live data. Scheduling meeting and recording is not that great with this software.

Pros

Bubble PPM

  • I already mentioned the simple user interface for data upload, and the equally intuitive customized reporting. Leadership and "supporting" functions for product development get tremendous value from this because they don't need to hunt down answers anymore. Everything from pipeline planning to operational planning can be built on the same foundation of objective data, rather than many different sources interpreted through many different lenses.
  • But the greatest value I think Bubble Innovator delivers is not really the product itself. It's the sense of partnership and responsiveness from the Bubble Innovation team. The Bubble Innovation team becomes a part of your team. They are valued consultants with helpful input on best practices for stage gate management, portfolio analytics, and report visualization. I have continually been impressed with the responsiveness and effort that their team brings to the table. When we have challenges and need to customize our data or analytics or reporting, they are right there beside us, finding the best solution, sharing prototypes in a test environment, and implementing as fast as possible.

Cons

Bubble PPM

  • Development of custom functionality, and redefining 'standard' options for the software. As Bubble grows and their customer base increases there will be opportunity for this, at present development projects can be slow and expensive. However the standard software options are excellent, but as processes evolve within organisations the flexibility to evolve the software could be made simpler.

  • Not convenient for non-SAP environment.
  • Sometime slower depends on SAP system load and version.

Usability

The user interface is highly visual and simple. Literally within 10-15 minutes of my introduction to the software, I was up and running. Of course, deeper capabilities become apparent after additional use, but the basic functionality is very simple to grasp. Where there are consistent challenges reported by multiple users, the Bubble Innovation team is quick to connect and put plans in place to address the challenges.

This product is very customer-centric and solution-based for SAP Project Management. It has very good web-based UI. Portfolio and Project Management in one single platform which is very rare in different project management products. Effective tool to manage projects, portfolios, budget and schedule. KPI and Reporting is one of the best features of this product.

The number of variables made this extremely challenging (org changes, stage gate harmonization, pipeline prioritization, and new governance model). I think the implementation was handled very well in spite of this, and managed to deliver on time and on budget.

Alternatives Considered

Bubble PPM

When evaluating Bubble Innovator against the competition, we felt that Bubble Innovator gave us the flexibility that we were looking for. Other solutions tended to have some hardwired functionality. Bubble Innovator was a great fit for managing our projects and was efficient to deploy, especially within our existing business processes.

SAP Portfolio and Project Management

For already existing and green field SAP project the SAP Portfolio and Project Management is the best product for handling projects. Sending and importing data and information is efficient using this software. You can communicate with other project members using this product environment. This works great with complex and bigger projects. Other software like Microsoft Project, ProjectLibre are also good products but [inconvenient] for SAP environment.
