Forecast

Forecast is well suited for tracking schedules, especially if it is only being controlled by a single department. When it comes to using Forecast in a larger ecosystem with more "cooks in the kitchen" it would be helpful to have the software more easily integrated with other software.

Planview Enterprise One (formerly Planview Enterprise and Troux)

Probably the best tool for both PPM and APM capabilities on the market today. Well suited for companies who are ready and able to commit. This means total buy-in from the entire organization. Companies must also be strategically minded and flexible with process / organizational change management. Not well suited for organizations who are inflexible or who only think tactically. These organizations might perform very well from an operational vantage, but will struggle with Enterprise One.

Pros

Forecast

  • Assign and allocate resources.
  • Identify lean departments and identify areas to increase headcount.
  • Manage agile teams.
  • Identify bottlenecks in departments or resourcing.

  • Out of the box analytics. Canned, but modestly configurable reports that provide quick insights to project and resource performance.
  • Flexible configuration enables resource management at a macro or micro level.
  • Modeling (what-if). I can create projects, load with resources and quickly stack it against our existing portfolios to identify conflicts and optimize scheduling.

Cons

Forecast

  • Not as intuitive as its companion software, Harvest. This software takes longer to learn when on-boarding new staff. It is also difficult to view time notes without needing to physically open them up. This could be improved by expanding the "on hover" functionality. Personally, having spent as little time in workflow software is really important, as it gives me more time to code.
  • Because we use this software to plan schedules, items often fall through the cracks. I would like to see some more sophisticated syncing with not only Harvest but also with Asana.
  • Lack of integration with Asana. It would be nice to pull data from forecast and display it in Asana. This would be helpful for understanding how much time I have to spend on a project rather than bounce back and forth between web apps.

  • Change, Risk and Issue tracking is available in the tool currently, but it could use a face-lift to be up to par with the rest of the application. Portal visibility into this area of data could be helpful, especially when tracking for a Program of projects.
  • Communication capabilities to the users currently comes in the form of onscreen notifications delivered via portlet views and/or in the form of an email notification delivered to the user's email address on file. However, these notifications are not as configurable as we would like to see. The text of the emails cannot be edited. Many notifications cannot be configured to be sent via email and must be viewed on screen by the user. However, when an implementation is less mature, or you have users that are not required to be in the tool daily, these notifications go unnoticed and are therefore ineffective.
  • Recently Planview has begun to deliver Web Services to their customers to use to build interfaces and other automations. For an organization with the right talent available, these services can be very useful. The challenge is that some of them are lacking in providing all of the same capabilities that a live user would have available in the User Interface, therefore only so much can be converted to Web Services. We hope that Planview continues to invest in expanding and improving these services to meet the needs of their customers.

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.

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.

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

Forecast

I have not used any other scheduling software other than Forecast. The company selected Forecast because it is used in conjunction with Harvest. The pair of web apps can be used to pull detailed data. This is very important to our agency, and making data-driven decisions is exceptionally important to our agency mission.

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

Forecast

  • Allow departments to run efficiently.
  • Quickly identify whether departments need to hire.
  • Easily visualize project gaps in resources.

  • I can't quote specific numbers, but, before our current installation of Planview, data would exist in multiple sources and was duplicated across the organization. It took practically a full FTE to produce monthly reports on cost and effort across the portfolio of work. Plus, with duplicate sources of "truth", much time was spent reconciling the data across the multiple sources and debating which was correct. Now, the data comes directly from a single source and anyone in the company can view it real time.
  • The cost is not insignificant. If all a company needs is something to run project plans for a handful of projects, Planview is not for you. Planview is better suited for companies with multi-million dollar portfolios of work involving dozens or hundreds of resources. By getting that consolidated view into resource needs of the future, companies are able to make better strategic decisions around which projects to accept and which ones to defer or cancel.
