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.

I am very glad about the working speed of this tool. The comfort and support it has provided us in project management are worth appreciating because Project management is a big deal and using ZenTao has made it easy and fun for us as we can as a team better collaborate. But some of its features need to be fixed.

  • Story could be linked with product, sprint, test case, bug, which makes traceability so great.
  • Test module, with test case, case library, test request, test report, very detailed.
  • On-Premise available, the package is very small based on LAMPP
  • SaaS version even cheaper without your own IT maintenance support.
  • Price really affordable.
  • API call is easy, so that we could do customizations.

Cons
Oracle
  • 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.

  • The function of ZenTao mobile version is a little weak.
  • ZenTao users need to receive training before they start using the software, because for testers, the first use of the software may be a little complicated, and they cannot execute the same test case multiple times in the same test execution process.
  • Although there are many reports built in. But if you want to get the data yourself,You have to know how to write SQL to customize your reports, which can a little bit challenging.

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.

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.

ZenTao defines bugs, tasks, and stories separately, not just an ISSUE. I can oversee the development from creating a Product Backlog to releasing the increment. I can also collect and record product feedback from the client and share with my team.

  • We are delivering projects on time and can keep an eye on the progress of our projects.
  • My team and I can better communicate on a project.
  • As it is [in my experience], buggy it sometimes results in disturbing the whole working of our company.
