2) Like I mentioned in my cons the only thing required from a user perspective is actual understanding of the tool and also making sure that the appropriate boxes are checked when reports are being generated.
Planview is best suited for larger organizations. It is simply too much tool for smaller ones. (Thus the purchase of Innotas this year.)
The budget module and financial capabilities were the reason we chose Planview many years ago and continues to be a strong part of the tool, especially with the improvements in version 12.0.
I have been impressed with Planview's ability to move the tool forward as the world and project management needs change. They are very good about listening to customer complaints/pain points and address them as quickly as possible in such a large application.
We have also been successful in using the tool in some unconventional ways, specifically in areas where the users have no desire to report time. Planview provides consultants that enable you to think out of the box and use the capabilities of tiles and other things to bring value in new ways.
As with any tool, the success of it will be dependent upon the attitudes and desires of senior management to use the tool. Without executive buy in, the success of the implementation would have failed for us. Ultimately, I see our relationship with Planview as a long term relationship where there will be ups and downs, but in the long run the vision of where there are going is aligning with where we want to go.
Regarding specific scenarios, from a functionality standpoint, Planview Enterprise is well suited for both large and small organizations, as well as organizations that have resources overseas. Having worked in multiple industries, Planview Enterprise would be a strong addition to any organization trying to build or strengthen their PMO or just their project management processes and project tracking in general, regardless of industry.
