Hello all,

 

Does anyone have any current recommendations for IT project management software?  We have tested a few that have been suggested by this list in the past, but we haven’t found the right mix of functionality and price.

 

Thanks,

Troy

Take a look at @task (www.attask.com)  We use it at Drexel eLearning for both IT project management and many other non-IT projects.

Perhaps you could let us know which ones you have tried so that if you’ve already determined it doesn’t fit, it is not suggested again.

Hello,

We use Daptiv PPM which is a SAS solution.  It is very flexible and provides many alternatives to the same solutions.  We have had it installed since 2009.  You can see a demonstration at http://daptiv.com/  Good luck in your search,

 

Have a great day!

Thanks!

I’ll second TeamDynamix.  We use it at Carnegie Mellon.  The interface is intuitive, support is excellent, and they are very responsive to customer suggestions to improve the tool.

We are using Project Server 2010 and very pleased. IT Services has used Project Server for a number of years. We recently expanded its use to Office of the Architect, Facilities Services (the other two areas that run projects) and Finance. All the University’s capital requests for the coming capital selection process are loaded in Project Server making it the repository of all projects. Something Finance has long wanted.

 

Thanks,

Dan

Do you have a preference for a particular project management methodology? I think that might affect which tool(s) to consider. For example, as a proponent of Agile methods, I am a very happy with Atlassian's product line for project/portfolio management as well as task management: Confluence, JIRA, Greenhopper, etc. Although, unless you are interested in Agile methods, this might not be something of interest. I tend to think it is best to define an approach project management, then identify the tools that support that approach, even perhaps, your flavor of that approach.

We use Daptiv at Carleton College.  If you have more questions about this particular product, I'd be happy to contribute.

We use the 2010 versions of Microsoft Project and Project Server. I was not impressed with previous versions but 2010 is very good. The price was right for us and it offers the needed functionality. I am using the ARGOS reporting tool (by Evisions) to develop cross-project reports.

Hey,

The Office of Information Technology at NC State University is implementing Daptiv and have had a pretty good experience so far. AtTask was a close second, but we went with Daptiv because it was a tad cheaper over 5 years and seemed to be more flexible.

Message from sorensos@uab.edu

We have just completed  a PPM selection process.  We looked at the software that many others have mentioned.  AtTask, Innotas, and Daptiv.  Due to non-vendor reasons we did not look at Team Dynamix, but I think they should be considered.  Additionally we looked at Project Server but ruled it out due to complexity and browser (we have a mix of Apple users) concerns.

 

I conducted or heard from about eight references.  They all said that AtTask and Innotas ranked very close to one another.  We have decided to pursue AtTask.

 

Thanks.
