04/ Summary

PPM Express is different – it is a genuine cloud software product running on secure Microsoft Azure, and it is instantly ready-to-use. PPM Express can be tuned-up any time along the way – and you don’t have to be a consultant to make that change – any user can make a configuration change, or build a new project template.

We are proud of how easy it is and that no consultants are required. We introduced a new way for organizations to realize value faster, see results more quickly, get better ROI and protect existing investments in other tools.

Without a doubt, Jira provides a central place that promotes work visibility and team collaboration. Due to a lot of new product engineering tools coming up, Jira has to provide some integrations for those as soon as possible.

In addition, migration from other systems to Jira is a bit complex, as there’s no automated process for that, and it’s mostly a manual process.

In terms of the ability to type and format content in each epic or individual story, Jira can be a little frustrating and difficult to use. It’s adequate, and it has recently added integrations and other ways to link design, but it can be difficult to translate complex requirements into Jira hastily.

06/ Cost Effectiveness

Jira is not a one-stop solution. If your business needs a portfolio management tool with collaboration functionalities, such as resource management or ideation, then you need to use Jira add-ons, such as Confluence.

If you require advanced solutions with portfolio management and resource management, you will need to look elsewhere. If your only need is simple task management software, then it’s a good idea to choose a simpler and more affordable option than Jira.

The only cost you face to implement PPM Express Enterprise is a license cost, starting $7,995 (price depends on the number of seats only; PPM Express provides unlimited seat plans as well).
