"Clunky but manageable"

What do you like best?

I like that it has the ease of SAP so if you are familar with SAP it is more of the same. That is also what I dislike about it- that it is clunky like SAP tends to be.

What do you dislike?

The program can be confusing for a new user with no real base level understanding of project management. I would like to be guided along when utilzing a project management tool and there is none of that. Its kind of trial by fire! I also hate that it makes me "log out" of single sign on often taking 30 seconds to close the session.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you need sophisticated project management especially related to tying everything together into one place I would look elsewhere.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We utilize the program for time tracking and some project management tracking. I think the plan is to replace it with something more sophisticated in the near future. It was cheap and relatively easy to use which was the draw.

"SAP PPM for Portfolio Project Managment"

What do you like best?

The SAP PPM is the standard for implementing Portfolio and Project Management in our organization. We use PPM for all of our Generation, Transmission and Distribution capital projects. The solution is scaleable for projects ranging from $8B to <$1M. Our solution integrates tightly with Primavera for real time schedule updates and rolling financial forecasts. We also benefit from backbone of SAP for financial and regulatory reporting.

What do you dislike?

Keeping the SAP PPM system update is very manually intensive. The need for a large project support team to maintain data and systems makes it not feasible for smaller organizations.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Ensure adequate user testing and training before deployment.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Managing capital projects with spend in excess of $2B / annum.

"SAP PPM - can it replace legacy project Management tool ?"

What do you like best?

1. The Web based UI.

2. Availability of Portfolio, Project and Initiative at one place.

3. Cost Benefit analysis feature.

4. Floor Plan Manger integration makes it easy for developers to do simple Enhancements.

What do you dislike?

Through Web Dynpro based UI is good compared to Classical GUI it is not as flexible as new age Web pages or other websites. The only yellow colors for button and background colors somewhat makes it similar to classical GUI.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

a) We were able to replace legacy tool and had an easy interface with SAP instead of using the integration between the SAP and legacy.

b) We were able to directly link the projects in SAP to Projects in PPM and were to analyze health of the Project easily using the reports in PPP.

c) Resourcing and CBA for 12 month period in graphical format was good use case.
