    Hive will fit right in to any workflow that manages multiple projects. It's also a great fit for collaboration on a per-project basis as external users can collaborate with paid users. Across a very large team it would take more planning on how to fit multiple workflows and groups into the workspace but it can be done.

    Planview PPM Pro is best suited for Portfolio, Program and Project management. From evaluating project requests through capacity & demand management, Planview PPM Pro provides an organization the ability to strategically align their work. It's dashboard & reporting features allow a drill-down view into the work taking place at any level. Planview PPM Pro is less suited for operational/agile work management. However, it integrates very well with Planview's LeanKit application. LeanKit has a Kan-ban UI that allows teams to visually manage work, allowing them to get more of the right things done and less time managing the process. The integration allows Planview PPM Pro to be the reporting engine for the rest of the organization.

    • New request workflow/kanban board helps visualize where new requests are in the process of the quote to cash/request to completion
    • The time tracking tool is tied directly to project tasks for seamless integration of time tracking, estimates, and actuals
    • The reporting capabilities and ease of use has allowed us visibility to data that we never had before
    • The tool is easily configurable by Administrators. We can add fields, change reports, add new dashboards within hours vs. days of trying to track things manually

    Cons

    Hive Technology

    • You can't move urgent actions to the top.
    • It takes a little too much time to load up on the desktop version.
    • There's definitely room for improvement in keyboard shortcuts.

    Planview

    • The base API is not a REST based interface and is difficult to use for integration with other systems in the enterprise.
    • The UI for the maintenance of the task schedule for projects can be a bit cumbersome , although the spreadsheet style editor helps somewhat. The Gantt view is not interactive.
    • The workflow engine is designed only for initial project intake, and does not allow for an integration of the work flow with the project from start to end, so it can't be used for routing artifacts like change requests, ancillary project approvals, etc.

      Because I never evaluated other tools, I would be open to considering others. Given our establishment with Innotas and the value it has provided us, separating from it would cause some organizational discomfort. However, if a tool existed with a more intuitive interface for manipulating the data and factors of projects and resources, I would be very interested.

      Usability

      Hive Technology

      I love Hive so much because it has made a huge difference regarding team communication and project management at the same time. We experienced almost no bugs and in the few cases that we did have some trouble, the customer service team was very responsive and solved our problems very quickly.

      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

      Our CSR is easily accessible and they have support built into the app itself. They also have a pretty robust support site. We also took advantage of the free trial and learned so much by putting Hive through the paces and figuring out the best way to mold it to our needs.

      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

      Hive Technology

      I would say that in comparison to Asana, Hive is a better interface an UI. I think Asana is more robust in terms of what it can do in conjunction with Confluence but I think Hive is a better entry-level model for new employees. Hive is much simpler and more straight forward and its integration with Slack is preferred.

      Planview PPM Pro is a suite of multiple products which makes it different from other tools. PMO-related features are easy to use. Time tracking is much less cumbersome as compared to other tools. Also, the interface is clean but UI looks a bit old school. Navigation within the tool is sleek and it's easy to switch across different parts of the tool.
