Microsoft Project has been a standard for tracking projects of various sizes. The dependency chaining works quite well and helps visualize resource and task scheduling. Good for milestone tracking at a high level, while also designating resources to...

Azana sort of forces a task management paradigm on your company. There are some situations where you can't quite fit what you are doing into the mold they provide. One good example of this if you have some sort of high level task that you would like a...
