Strategic Portfolio & Project Management: Planview PPM Pro is used to manage our strategic project work intake to evaluate project requests for strategic alignment and ROI before we spend real dollars investing in a project. Last year we avoided over 4 million dollars on a single request by identifying unnecessary requirements.

Work Intake: Planview PPM Pro work intake module is World Class. It's allowed us to consolidate our Strategic & Non-strategic Project Intake as stated above. We also have over 2 dozen department-level workflows that provide teams a single entry-point (& single source of truth) for their most critical processes. Teams have been able to strategically remove unnecessary resources, or add resources that provide easily identifiable value.

Dashboards & Reports: This is what truly provides value for our (or any) organization. We're able to provide a 500-, 5,000-, and 5,0000-ft view of the ongoing project and department work taking place. We use high-level dashboards/scorecards for executives, mid-level operational dashboards for directors & managers, and tactical dashboards for teams. These provide a clear, strategically aligned view of the work taking place within our organization.
  • Portfolio Management
  • Project management and alignment
  • Project work intake (requests)
  • Capacity & Demand Management
  • Integration with other applications
  • Mobile interface, especially for work requests
  • Modernize Project & Request Scoring
  • Move from a SOAP API to a REST API
Planview PPM Pro is best suited for Portfolio, Program and Project management. From evaluating project requests through capacity & demand management, Planview PPM Pro provides an organization the ability to strategically align their work. It's dashboard & reporting features allow a drill-down view into the work taking place at any level. Planview PPM Pro is less suited for operational/agile work management. However, it integrates very well with Planview's LeanKit application. LeanKit has a Kan-ban UI that allows teams to visually manage work, allowing them to get more of the right things done and less time managing the process. The integration allows Planview PPM Pro to be the reporting engine for the rest of the organization.
We use Planview PPM Pro's customizable dashboard & reporting features to monitor our work intake processes and evaluate project performance. Routine dashboard routing to all stakeholders allows real-time evaluation of performance measures and resource allocations. As priorities shift, we're able to reschedule resources based on capacity and keep projects moving.

We use it for capturing project spent hours and monitoring for reports as well.
  • Easy request
  • Timesheet monitor and approval
  • Heads up for timesheet unsubmitted for tracking
  • New and exiting request - status alarm (In-process / completed/ denied)
  • If additional hours are worked, how can we incorporate and have visibility of those hours spent on work
  • I'm a limited user, no specific apart from the above
Mainly in capturing work hours and time spent on different projects.
So far, raising new requests for the addition of new employees, initiating maternity leave, and having visibility of my team work hours on various projects is seen in one stop. Great, and it's very helpful for me, my Manager, and for the R&D site level as well.

We mainly use Planview PPM Pro for project management. I am in a software development team, and we have to carefully plan timelines and resources for the project. Planview PPM Pro has been really useful in all the aforementioned aspects. The tool is awesome for overall project management at a high level. A project manager can collaborate and plan their projects and resources effectively. Though at lower work breakdown, it really becomes tedious to show/search those interim details within projects.
  • Project management
  • Integration and deployment planning
  • Easy to use user interface
  • Missing features compared to Servicenow
  • Lack of customer support
It is really a great tool for project management. It includes management topics such as cost management, compliance, and resource planning at less of a cost than some other alternatives. However, it might not have the best customer support. Certainly, it should not be used as a sprint management tool such as Trello.
It has had a positive impact for sure. The dashboards and reporting really allow us to track the progress of individuals as well as portfolios of projects. The dashboards themselves provided metrics that helped us track what projects needed special attention. Furthermore, predictive analytics and scoring help further with prioritization, estimations, and management.

Having Planview in our organization is a huge plus benefit we never experienced before, allowing us to manage our different projects efficiently from initial point to completion and enable good business decisions based on a project priority basis. Reporting and assigning resources to the tasks is made easier. Every detail of a project is trackable.
  • Resource allocation.
  • Project tracking.
  • Portfolio and project management

In our organization, we are using Planview PPM Pro for Time tracking and project management. It's easier to track time with Planview PPM Pro as we can find Project codes and Tasks in an organized manner otherwise it's always a struggle to find out appropriate project codes and respective tasks. We can see reports also from the dashboard and can track our extra time. For managers, there is much more to explore with the reports for project management purposes.
  • Time tracking.
  • Project Management.
  • Assignment Schedule.
  • Interface is not appealing.
  • Improvement can be done on UI.
  • Much room is till there for improvement on Project Management.
Easy to use without much complexity. It is a one-stop tool for most project management needs. We can integrate external tools also though we are not using them at the moment. Reporting is overall good and all PMO-related reporting can be seen in the dashboard itself. However, UI is a bit old school and Financial management-related features are limited.
Planview has helped in tracking, scheduling assignments, and reporting in an organized manner. Planview PPM Pro has made Budgeting, resource utilization, and allocation easy. Planview is a cloud-based tool so we don't need to procure additional hardware and infra team for maintaining the application. Though few financial-related features are not up to the mark Planview PPM Pro provides integration with external tools from where financial data can be pulled out and reports can be created on Planview PPM Pro.

Planview PPM Pro is used to capture projects and initiatives through the lifecycle stage (ideation to execution). All details of the lifecycle are captured.
  • Ability to delineate information of initiatives.
  • Ability to enter information easily.
  • Ability manipulate custom fields.
  • Selecting custom views can be difficult.
  • Updating and modifying fields that have been populated are cumbersome.
  • Global editing would be nice.
Where initiatives/programs are tracked in a discrete way and many users have access to the information. It allows for free-flowing of information. where it is less appropriate is when information and format are highly constrained.
This is hard to justify as the information/dashboard reporting seems a bit limited and the views we are looking for must be custom built or the information must be manually manipulated.

We have over 2000 active users from many different business areas addressing many types of projects. We are using it to solve the issues around transparency and financial justification.
  • Work intake with the request module.
  • Dashboards and reports with the latest release.
  • Financial reporting of capital and non capital expenses.
  • Tighter integration with their work collaboration tool called Projectplace.
  • Improve mass updating features when using more than one project category.
  • Include metrics around usage and adoption rates.
Best utilized with out-of-the-box functionality. Try to limit customizations unless you have a team to support them.

We use it to track all IT Project Requests and track IT labor against those projects. We track project portfolios by business unit. In addition to Projects we also track Administrative, Operational, and Small Enhancement activities. Also use it to manage resources - to see what percent they are allocated for current and future project tasks.
  • Portfolio Management
  • Labor Reporting
  • Resource Management
  • Reporting (but we are looking forward to Reports 2.0)
  • Field level security
Well suited for Project Portfolio Management - gives visibility to all portfolios and projects within. We are not using it for the individual project management activities - not as a methodology

Would like to explore the Project Request stage gate process/workflow.
This is an area we want to explore further - currently not using

For Project Requests: review, approval workflow, scoring, alignment with strategy, prioritization, etc.

We are using it to manage our major projects and portfolio, making it a central location for our global departments and Associates to track and update. This also allows our c-suite to have a view of what is going on with the company globally.
  • Organizing projects into a portfolio or category
  • The new reporting and dashboard tools is AMAZING
  • Drilldowns are great for going into the detail information
  • Creating custom fields is useful to help accommodate the variety of needs each department has
  • I wish there was a way to add a table matrix, to help populate or pull data for certain fields.
  • It does get frustrating or confusing to figure out if I need to go to Resources or User to look over a person's account
  • One of our external contacts had a hard time logging into a project, even though we were told it was possible to have that.
  • I wish we knew of an upload tool for helping update the resources in PPMPro, since many times people leave, arrive, or change titles
[I feel] It is most suited for waterfall project management, PMBOK project management process, and to have an overview of projects. But I wouldn't use it for agile methodology (Planview's Leankit tool is good for that!).
We haven't used some of that, at the moment it is more externally done but hopefully we can move away from that. We also are currently using Spigit for a lot of that pre-aligning.

Planview PPM Pro (formerly Innotas) was implemented as our Enterprise Portfolio Tracking Tool to have a central system for all project data, financials, time tracking, and reporting. It is being used by the PMO to tracking incoming requests and manage project data and financials. Our IT and Business Departments track time to projects in the timesheet management module.
  • 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
  • Planview PPM Pro (formerly Innotas) does not fully support agile methodologies from a task and time tracking perspective. It is based on the notion of assigning specific resources to projects and tasks. For fully agile companies, we need to be able to create Teams, with specific roles assigned to each time and/or people assigned to teams, so we can assign the Team and estimate to the task and the data by role will associate. We logged an enhancement with Planview for this.
  • The project list needs to be viewable in a kanban form
  • The request and project data should be directly tied together, not via an association, so they can travel the kanban process together and simplify reporting
  • Timesheet alerts should be set by user type, not all or nothing
Planview PPM Pro (formerly Innotas) is perfect for waterfall or mostly waterfall shops. If you are an agile shop, you need to implement Lean Kit or will not have the agile capabilities. We had success linking VersionOne to Planview PPM Pro (formerly Innotas) through lean kit but it is a lot of maintenance to keep adding fields, and this does not fully support a feature team link to time tracking.
We have implemented project prioritization, WSFJ, and enterprise risk scoring. All of these have provided a level of visibility we did not have before to ensure we are working on the highest priority items and providing visibility to leadership on critical items.

We are using it to manage our project portfolio, track project time for OIT, and to manage projects at a high level. It is also used for management reporting.
  • Reporting on Current, Future, On Hold projects
  • Allows for time tracking
  • Allows for filtering on projects, resources, organization
  • Being able to manage tasks at a more detailed level, and allow key project members to update easily
  • Hoping that R2D2 provides for easier set up/maintenance of reports
  • Some of the admin functions are not straight forward
Well suited for Portfolio management. Not well suited for project managment with details and allowing team members ease of updating.
Once we added a service to each project we could use that to assist in aligning projects to key objectives

[Planview] PPM Pro [(formerly Innotas)] is used to manage our portfolio of IT projects across the enterprise. It is also used for resource management and time entry. We use the tool to prioritize project work intake and monitor ongoing execution of projects. Reporting and dashboards are used to provide visibility to stakeholders and executive leaders.
  • The configurability of PPM Pro is the best I have seen in any of the PPM Pro tools I have used in my career. We are able to configure work flows that integrate into multiple PPM processes and integrate or isolate those processes with the others as needed.
  • The reporting capability is on par, and in many cases better, than other tools I have used. The ability to combine data elements and perform create unique calculations for reports is the best I have encountered.
  • The tools available for resource management are robust and provide great visibility into resource capacity and unfilled demand.
  • The integrations with the other tools in the Planview product line allow a full range of planning, management, and team activities in a format that suits the needs of each individual team.
  • 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.
Overall, [Planview PPM Pro (formerly Innotas)] is simply the best PPM tool I have used in my career. Gartner says it is one of the best, and the use of the system bears this out.
The ability to configure intake workflows to gather the information needed to make decisions on project prioritization, is easily handled with the configuration capabilities of [Planview PPM Pro (formerly Innotas)]. We can gather the information decision makers need, provide them with objective scoring information, and do so from a customizable list of contributors at each stage in the workflow process.

Used by a department that manages strategic business plan projects across the organization. The tool allows for visibility and reporting of our projects to stakeholders at all levels.
  • Customer Support and Engagement
  • Continuous Monthly Product Upgrades and Enhancements
  • Easy system to configure and manage
  • Risk Management and Matrix
  • Request Scoring and Reporting
  • Trending Reports
Planview PPM Pro is good for smaller organizations looking to introduce more rigor in their project management framework/process. It has the ability to scale to handle more complex environments and has ancillary tools to support your way of working and collaborating.
Requests are captured, scored, and prioritized. Gating and category balancing is being introduced to help with our focus and schedule from a portfolio level.

Planview PPM Pro is used by IT in my company especially for capacity management and resource management. The challenge that we have in terms of managing the portfolio is arriving at the different projects within a portfolio and ensuring that the capacity that we have meets the need. When we do the portfolio planning, the tool helps us a lot in doing so, and from the reporting perspective, it provides a good overview of where time is spent as compared to what was planned, which I feel is key for a standard project and portfolio management
  • Capacity Management
  • Resource Management
  • TIme Tracking
  • Financial Management
  • Reporting
  • Dashboard
  • Agile Project Management
  • Integration with tool such as PowerBI
  • Connectivity to Azure DevOps/Jira
Planview PPM Pro is well suited for managing capacity, resource allocation, time tracking, and traditional project delivery. Planview PPM Pro has limitations when it comes to Agile project delivery.
We haven't used the PPA or request module of Planview PPM Pro as we continue to track them on the excel sheet

We use it primarily for portfolio management and for resource allocations across our centralized IT division. We also do quite a bit of reporting to management and provide project status updates via PPM Pro. We track project requests up through the approval process when they are promoted to projects.
  • Resource allocations.
  • Project tracking.
  • Portfolio management.
  • Task management.
  • Agile projects.
This is great for medium to large projects. It may be overkill for smaller projects.
We have used the request feature to align with our governance process. Each request is "tracked" for risk scoring and then sent to each decision body for formal project approval.

We use Planview in out IT and Project Management departments currently. We will be expanding to other departments soon. PPM Pro addresses simplifying project governance, tracking time, and reporting. The program has helped eliminate the need for manually updating our project portfolio. We were also able to eliminate manually updating time spent on projects into an excel spreadsheet. This has also helped with errors in reporting time on the wrong projects.
  • Customized reports and dashboards help to easily view projects
  • Capacity and demand reports help see staffing needs and if resources are over staffed.
  • In depth customer experience helps us build out based on our needs.
  • The search feature in Help could be improved sometimes it's difficult to find what I need.
  • The permissions can be confusing. Even after training sessions sometimes it is difficult to follow.
  • It would be helpful to have a log of reports and filters created. Ours got overwhelming very quickly.
It is excellent for reporting to Executives and managers. Very easy to visualize statuses, so if projects are over budget or out of scope. You can easily setup portfolios for different departments. It is great for seeing what your teams are spending their time on. You can also see if you need to hire staff.
We have created risk assessments. We have started keeping better track of budgets. Also seeing picture of staffing. We can really see where are resources are focused.
