Celoxis

Celoxis is a great option if you are looking for an affordable, easy to use, easy to integrate project manegement solution. It is very powerful for waterfall project management. I evaluated more than 15 platforms and could not find any with a close evaluation in terms of cost-benefit to Celoxis. Of course there are more powerfull tools, for 10 times the price. So far, for project management, there hasn't been a requirement I haven't been able to solve with some work.It really lacks features for Agile methodologies, even if it provides a Kanban view, so far it doesn't provide and additional agile artifacts. If an organization has already reached a very mature project management practice and needs to improve on program and portfolio management, Celoxis won't provide any useful feature. If the organization has the resources (skills and time mostly) to develop some workflows and customization, it might work but with a limit. Hopefully Celoxis addresses these features in the near future.

Kimble

I would score Kimble at an 8 for recommendation, but, truth be told, it would definitely vary depending on what department is using the system. Since we use Kimble throughout the entire organization, I can see the benefits it has in other departments. For example, our resourcing team has become more efficient in timesheet control and the delivery team more aware of their ongoing projects.

Kimble

  • Not the most user friendly interface, a lot of data on many screens.

Celoxis

I used an evalaution matrix built with input of several stakeholders in the company. In the end the matrix included 100 features (non of them was price related). The matrix was heavily focused on waterfall project management, agile related features were only 5 out of 100 features. Features were labeled as mandatory, required or optional. Products which lacked a mandatory feature (like providing technical support) were disqualified. Then a price vs features evaluation was made and only the products with the best combination were seleced to continue: Celoxis, ITM Platform and Mission Control. A final technical evaluation was made comparing the full evaluation but also the evaluation of only the 40 required features. Overall, Celoxis was the better evaluated (76% vs 65% of the second place), for the 40 required features, Celoxis got 91% against 78% of number 2. In the end we chose Celoxis even when it had higher licensing cost.

Kimble

Prior to Kimble, we were using a system called Deltek Traffic Live. This system was sufficient in handling simple small data but was extremely not user-friendly. It required a lot of manual adjustments with exported data since we couldn't tailor the system to our business requirements. Kimble has offered us greater data accuracy, more flexibility, and wider visibility over a larger data set.
