    Kanban is well suited for a fast-paced working environment for larger teams who want continuous communication with users. Kanban is good for rapid development and daily meetings for updates and statuses. Kanban is less suited for smaller teams or groups who don't require collaboration and constant communication with involved users. Kanban is time-consuming and it takes additional effort outside of your regular work to maintain and manage the tool.

    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.

    Pros

    Shore Labs

    • It provides a good basic overview of where tasks are on a timeline (particularly helpful for a pull-based approach).
    • It provides a good collaborative space to have multiple folks commenting on multiple tasks.
    • It does a good job of managing very basic visual elements of an agile development cycle.

    • 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

    Shore Labs

    • Kanban does not show the task or story clearly. You have to open the project separately to view the details of the project.
    • Kanban gives a higher level project management view but it lacks customization and personal settings features.
    • I would like to see Kanban provide mobile access to their tool, data, and board. This would be very useful for all companies and provide an increase in efficiency and productivity.

    • 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.

      We are more likely than not to renew our use of Kanban. Even with its limits, it still is a good product that fulfills our needs.

      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

      Again, this is a strong tool for software teams using Agile that are distributed across multiple geographies. It can be good for co-located teams too, but there are better platforms on the market like JIRA that provide a more built-out story.

      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

      Alternatives Considered

      Shore Labs

      We've only tried JIRA Agile and KanbanFlow before. Kanban Tool was the one that our team actually liked and enjoyed working with. Also - it's been much easier to get started with and to understand than some of the other two (JIRA in particular). Although JIRA has many more features that we would have possibly used, the user feedback on it was so poor we were afraid that the negativity would create time wasted and less "job satisfaction" amongst the team.

      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.

      Return on Investment

      Shore Labs

      • Better communication and organization of ongoing projects.
      • We are a very small team, with many areas to work on. Having everything in one system gives us a lot of visibility.
      • Greatly reduced costs from using other tools that were much more expensive.
