For outstanding project managing and operational assistance, Oracle Aconex is an incredible program. The budget that suits every project are met and followed. More so, Oracle Aconex takes the permits required, for instance, the insurance permit and the license tracking. The contractor management feature is also encoded on Oracle Aconex, making the investor and the contractor have the same objective.

Based on my experience, Planview PPM Pro is well suited for organizations that have a large number of projects to manage and are looking for a comprehensive solution to help them plan, track, and deliver those projects successfully. The software's ability to align projects with strategic objectives, track resources, and provide robust reporting and analytics capabilities make it particularly well-suited for organizations that need to manage their projects and resources effectively. On the other hand, Planview PPM Pro may not be as well-suited for organizations that have a relatively small number of projects and do not require a full-featured project portfolio management solution. The software can be complex and may be overkill for organizations that do not need all of its features. Additionally, Planview PPM Pro may not be as well-suited for organizations that have very specific project management needs and require a high level of customization. While the software does offer some customization options, it may not be as flexible as some organizations need.
Read full review Pros Time tracking functionality is amazing. All the features are easy and active. The Cloud services offered by Oracle Aconex is efficient. Read full review 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 Read full review Cons Interface needs work; graphically inelegant, somewhat non-intuitive. Process controls could be better 'templated' for industry standards. Dashboard/to do for project managers - it's still too hard to see who is slowing the project down. Read full review 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. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
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.

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

We're delighted with Oracle Aconex's functionality, UX, capabilities, and feature offerings. The only thing that keeps us from giving it a perfect 10/10 is the price. There are other options out there that won't burn as deep of a hole in your pocket, but then again, you get what you pay for.

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.

Oracle Aconex seems to be tailored for our specific needs since it supports construction project information and all related type of data. It is secure and compliant which makes it crucial for real-time collaboration and control of job site processes. Other platforms that we have evaluated are still well designed, but much more generic which is not favourable for our engineering projects.

Planview PPM Pro integrates all of the PM features of other applications and then adds features on top of them. Other applications tend to offer a solution around as single "need", forcing users to "build their own solution".
