Oracle Aconex

It seems that Oracle Aconex is particularly well suited for small to medium-sized businesses. For our company size, at least, Oracle Aconex is more than capable of providing all of the operation management needs that we could ever conceivably need. However, I can see how some of its flaws wouldn't work for a larger company.

Redmine

Redmine is a perfect solution for businesses that are looking for a FREE and open source solution for project management. It is great for teams that are managing numerous tasks or projects at one time. Redmine is easy to set up and is fairly self-explanatory for anyone who is semi tech-savvy.

Redmine

  • The design and user-interface are a little outdated. It looks like a product that was designed ten years ago and doesn't have a polished look and feel like newer apps have.
  • It's not particularly designed to support agile-based project management methodologies such as Scrum.

Redmine is a great product to have in an organization. It's extremely flexible, costs much less to maintain than other alternatives, and as a tool, it is relatively fast to get experienced with. The primary advantages of working with Redmine are: flexible platform, API, open-source and highly configurable, stability.

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.

Redmine is free, easy to use and it's everything you could want in a free project management program. The fact that it has wiki integration and that it can track on such a granular level is amazing. Assigning tasks to other users, such as our development team, is fantastic and ensures we are always up-to-date on where we are what - on what projects.

Alternatives Considered

Oracle Aconex

I am currently using file sharing such as Egnyte and ShareFile which are useful but don't have much of a transmittal or inmail functionality so I can't really speak to other products in the same league as Aconex. I don't typically like proprietary contractor solutions due to their non-neutrality and embedded agendas, which often are not consistent with the owner's interests.

Redmine

Basecamp was very busy and seemed more into the "wow" factor than into being an efficient tool. Redmine has none of the characters or kid-like appearance of Basecamp's model. I found Basecamp to be too cluttered in views and its interactions confusing, making it difficult to find where centrally kept information was.
Redmine has a straightforward no-nonsense default UI, though you can change it how you like of course. The views were designed for simplicity and thinking of the least amount of steps to get to one goal instead of trying to make a pleasing color palette that was overstimulating. I think Basecamp is more geared towards the "chat" aspect whereas Redmine is good for the larger overview of a project.

Return on Investment

Oracle Aconex

  • Increased accountability for all tracked areas within the platform is very beneficial in our case.
  • A visible increase in process management quality could be noticed.

Redmine

  • Positive: Redmine's initial impact is minimal: in terms of Dollars-the cost of acquisition is the price you pay for Electricity, Internet bandwidth and hardware
  • Redmine's REAL cost is time and knowledge: You will need a Linux expert to implement Redmine.
  • Readmine's configuration is also Time intensive, and it's better to augment your current staff, or hire someone directly to implement your Redmine configuration changes.
