Microsoft Project Server

You will be able to do the project management (scheduling, tasks assignment, resources allocation, cost tracking) for all your projects in one place, where the team members can contribute and keep the plans up to date. The web version does the main job right but if you find it more difficult to use you just use the standalone Microsoft Project and upload the changes back to the server.

Planview Enterprise One (formerly Planview Enterprise and Troux)

PVE1 is ideally suited for a mature enterprise. One with a need to map strategies to outcomes, one with top-down support and direction that will ensure its data integrity and value on a persistent basis. It is not suited for project execution or collaboration. It is best served as the system of record for project intake, resource management, and performance reporting.

Pros

Microsoft Project Server

  • Project schedule is one of the key features we use. Project professional can be used to do bulk task updates, manage resources, find critical paths of project tasks very easily.
  • A lot of extension capabilities are available when it comes to reporting. You can create SSRS reports or integrate with SQL database in the back-end to create OLAP cubes for Power Pivot and other BI reports
  • Workflows and Project Detail Pages (PDP) are very easy to configure. You can also control which field(s) to display on a particular phase or PDP.

Planview Enterprise One (formerly Planview Enterprise and Troux)

  • Planview Enterprise (PVE) provides end-to-end work management for the full spectrum of work types in one tool. Traditional project work can be fully implemented with detailed or summarized WBS, stage gates, workflow management and content management. Non-project work can be tracked in a variety of ways. There is even an option for "ticket" type work. PVE provides 4 types of resource assignments to attach people to work; each with flexible configuration options to meet the need of the organization.
  • Planview Enterprise provides robust Rating and Financial Planning capabilities, and they continue to grow in this area of the tool. Rates can be driven by attribute-based rate cards or by attaching the exact rate to the individual resource. Multiple override functions exist that allow work to be configured with the exact rates when the work is the exception to the rule. All effort data captured in the tool (both from manual entry and/or ported over from the work plans) is converted into financial data with just a few clicks. And, portfolio management of this data is easily delivered on screen.
  • The analytic options available in Planview Enterprise are broad and easily made available to the appropriate audience. They are graphic, but also drillable to the desired level of detail to facilitate analysis.

Cons

Microsoft Project Server

  • Resource loading and leveling extremely complicated within the tool
  • Software makes incorrect assumptions and changes without user knowledge
  • Inconsistencies within the tool make it hard to predict & troubleshoot

  • With power comes complexity. Users are sometimes not sure of which screen to use for certain activities. Planview has done a good job of improving the UI over the year but there are still some areas that could be simplified for the users.
  • The financial planning module does not offer enough granularity to track non-labor costs at a detailed level. Costs are grouped by unique attributes. If I want to track the purchase of 10 servers individually within a single project, I need to use a different tool.

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.

We don't have to worry about maintenance, upgrades, or compatibility issues. All the capabilities we need are there, and are easily customizable.

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

Microsoft Project Server

I was not involved in the process of selecting Microsoft Project Server, and this is the only product I have used.However, the multiplatform integration I think is what makes it so valuable. The access to such a wide variety of products from Microsoft that all work well together make it a tool that is both useful and user friendly enough for people of all skill/experience levels to learn quickly.
Amanda Bourdeaux | TrustRadius Reviewer

Planview Enterprise One (formerly Planview Enterprise and Troux)

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.

David Lean | TrustRadius Reviewer
