ConceptDraw PROJECT

Getting started - using the Gantt chart to enter tasks in any order and then using those tasks to initially define a MindMap to further explore alternative dependencies. The alternative works better when initiating a project with significant unknowns.

Innotas is able to handle a mid-size organization extremely well, but due to its poor searching features, I can see potential problems for extremely large organizations. So a key question to ask would be what is the size of your organization? A lot of tasks are also non-automated (such as dashboard refreshing and filter time updates), so the organization should also be willing to have a decent number of employees who will maintain the system.

Also, depending on the budget or expertise of the organization's employees, an organization may want to consider a newer or more advanced database software. Despite Innotas doing what is required of it reasonably effectively, it is likely better options exist.

Pros

ConceptDraw PROJECT

  • Integration with ConceptDraw Mindmap makes work breakdown very easy.
  • We have cross-functional teams where team members often work on different projects in parallel. The multi project management feature has been a blessing over these years.
  • Another import feature is the availability of many different predefined report generation templates that made it very easy to communicate different aspects of the project to different stakeholders.

  • Gives insight to the breadth of your project portfolio. When everybody has their wishlist of what they want done, Innotas shows what is being achieved, and by whom. That is crucial data for management.
  • Exposes resource over-utilization. When a developer is committed to more than one project, it drags down both. Every additional project reduces a developer's productivity.
  • Provides visibility to the project timelines. Management doesn't just want their wishlist completed, they need to know how long it will take. Innotas helps provide the high-level view they need to control the flow.

Cons

ConceptDraw PROJECT

  • Non-intuitive keyboard shortcuts
  • No advanced reporting or estimates
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Planview PPM Pro (formerly Innotas)

  • Needs simplification of reporting capabilities.
  • During implementation, needs to improve upon understanding the customer base and their processes so that the customer can be guided how to get the best utlization of the program for their needs. Continual hands-on support and review of the customer's system could be helpful as new capabilities are implemented.
  • Could use a slicker look and feel to the resource capacity planning process/screens.

As I previously stated I am no longer in the role where I acted as Innotas admin, but because our license has been twice renewed since initial deployment and since I am in the business and have used the IT request process I created and have not heard anything to the contrary

Still cumbersome in some areas. It really depends on the individual. I've seen very smart developers who get lost just managing tasks and logging time. Whereas others use the system with ease

Their ability to assist and answer questions when needed is incredible. They create innovative ways to share information and help customers trouble shoot. I didn't give it a ten because I believe they could do a better job of personally reaching out to customers and providing improvement guidance based on where the customer is at and their needs at the time

It's been since 2009. A lot has changed. We have not grown as much as we could have because of executive backing.

Alternatives Considered

ConceptDraw PROJECT

ConceptDraw has a much simpler licensing and pricing model. Perpetual license and ability to use in offline mode was an important criteria for us. Perfect bundle for small and medium business.

We use both to allocate time and track hours, however, while both are different, they serve some similarities. Planview PPM Pro is well suited for the HR side of allocating hours while VSTS is better for planning workloads using Agile Scrum Methodology.

Return on Investment

ConceptDraw PROJECT

  • Inexpensive way to present a professional project plan when needed
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Planview PPM Pro (formerly Innotas)

  • Some users think it's time consuming, although if they were trained properly and understood the benefits of Innotas, it may be different. So, possibly having quick tips within Innotas to help users better navigate and use the system itself.
  • It's definitely been a huge help with reporting statuses of projects and being able to hire additional resources when people are overloaded.
