1) Setting up of the tool to suit the needs of each project is very crucial. The best part of it is , in my organization there was a to be model proposed where version one could be synced to Planview that would make work more easy. It mainly follows the current PMP module where project management is a conglomeration with Agile practices.
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.

With the various options Planview offers it truly is a product that could meet a wide range of needs either across different companies or across different business units within one company. If you need to do only project management, not a problem. Start with PMing and slowly introduce other aspects like Resource Management as the company can absorb it.

Strong on project management. It is easy to start planning activities, resources, and report timesheets. The system has many features regarding planning and a good progress engine.

Its weakness is customization. It is not possible to customize the system with additional code. It is not possible to create triggers and jobs to automatize recurring actions.

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.

If your organization is willing to change processes and adapt to the Planview naming of things and do things their way (which might mean changing to use all of their software packages Timesheets, Project management, etc.), Planview can definitely work for your organization. If you need a highly flexible, enterprise friendly, open to integration system, I'd recommend something else.

It well suited to any company, as it has intuitive interfaces when using the various product components. Training is minimal, although there are webcasts for managers that must enter the project information. Since we have only used the product for two years, it is still in its infancy here, and we are still looking at all of the ways it can assist us to perform project planning, budgeting, and project monitoring.

  • Well suited for large organizations, especially global ones where you need to have visibility across project and resource portfolios.
  • Well suited for companies that have multiple overlapping applications that do the same thing. Enterprise One can be your one-stop-shop.
  • Well suited for companies that have multiple independent applications (Jira, Salesforce) that can interface with Enterprise One.
  • May be less appropriate for small companies with no PMO or the need for such a robust application. ProjectPlace maybe a better fit in that case.
  • Less appropriate may be a company that does not have the support for governance and compliance.

A company should have a strong grasp on their planned use cases before purchasing a tool with as much capability as Planview Enterprise (PVE). This will help ensure that they are picking a tool that matches their enterprise roadmap. For example, if time reporting is the primary use case, then PVE would be a very expensive timesheet when there are many less expensive and less complex tools that would do a fine job in this area.

Planview works well for large, well defined projects that follow a waterfall or iterative methodology with resourcing needs across various areas within the company or division. Though it does have support for Agile, it is not an Agile project management tool. For companies using Agile, there are other tools specifically designed to support that methodology. Planview can interface with these tools so you can have single view into an organization's capacity and demand management. The tool also requires a fair amount of discipline at a corporate level. The company needs to make a commitment to fully embrace the tool in order to receive the maximum benefit.

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.

Planview Enterprise (PVE) helps us connect our resource management efforts with our approved work efforts. Before PVE, these two areas were managed almost mutually exclusive from one another. The tool helps provide communication and collaboration between project teams and functional work areas.

We anticipate that the tool will ultimately help us decide which projects' concepts to fund and which to defer or decline. Our maturity model is just starting in this area.

In a scenario in which there are limited funds and limited resources for the development of either products, applications or any other asset, Planview will support you in managing the budget and resources in order to plan and execute projects or other work. Planview has a holistic approach and is especially very strong in the financial aspects.

Planview Enterprise is suited for organizations that want transparent and accessible information about projects and portfolios. If organizations want to rely less on spreadsheets and multiple tools, Planview Enterprise provides a "one-stop-shop" for all aspects of project and portfolio management.

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.

Definitely better suited used across the enterprise or across the whole of change as opposed to one or a few business units. Having visibility of project information from start to finish is a lot more beneficial than only a portion of it so make sure it's used by all users in change.

I don't know if this is exactly what you are asking but the challenge I have had at ASU is overcoming the perception that Planview is only good for managing IT projects. Project management is project management whether it is an IT project or managing capital projects.

Planview can work for very large or very small organizations, but I recommend Planview for organizations who have a need for detailed prioritization of work efforts across a limited pool of resources. Organizations that are able to effectively manage assignments today, tomorrow, and into the future may want to consider simpler tools for collaborating within project teams on their timeline, risks, issues, etc. ProjectPlace, for example, is very easy to use - and it integrates very well with Planview for organizations that need robust resource management as well as an interface that's easy to use for people that don't have a project management background.

Planview Enterprise is really strong tool to manage resource portfolios and project finances. It is also really user friendly. The different reports we can get from Planview are really helpful for analyzing our finance status. We can check resources task wise. We can allocate resources to any kind of capability pattern. There should just be some automated process to get allocations done resource by resource.
