    I would say it works really well for forecasting remaining effort, especially in terms of forecasting the dollar amounts. We've gotten pretty good at adjusting rates because we have a lot of contract workers.

    I've worked at many different companies, and the customer service and the support from Daptiv are unlike anything I've encountered before. They far excel any other company I've worked with. I always say to people that Daptiv is like a sub-department in your company. You don't realize they're a vendor. It feels like you're working with somebody who is part of your own company.

I work in Enterprise Architecture Project and Portfolio Management at a large insurance company.  I want to know what's out there, what's good, and get real user input about strategic project portfolio management solutions.

Hi @Cheryl Joseph ​Looking at the crossover between Project and Portfolio management with EA, then Planview could be a good choice. If looking at Portfolio Management from an EA perspective then LeanIX and Ardoq could be interesting alternatives.

Of course many of the traditional EA tools such as MEGA, Bizzdesign, etc. also provide portfolio management support, but in my opinion, they are not as comprehensive as the ones I mentioned above.

We have large and small Canadian customers using QualiWare as their Project and Application Portfolio management solution. Very flexible and comprehensive solution that can be easily configured to meet your needs. Simple browser interface for maintaining and analyzing the content. Bonus: ties directly into overall corporate EA initiatives and content so management can see costs, impacts, risks, etc.

Hi, @Cheryl Joseph Micro Focus Project and Portfolio Management solution could be a good candidate, see my review on this product, or if you may need more information to drop me a message. You can check the strategic portfolio planning solutions, like aangine with AI roadmap planning featuresthat can start to bring value in the short-term and can be entry-point to any PPM solution, unlike long investments that happen with PPM solutions deployments.
