Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Monday.com has made it much easier to keep track of a wide range of tasks whilst we have a team distributed over multiple countries and timezones.""The ability to export to Excel has been huge for us.""The stability is good.""The user experience of Monday.com is exceptional.""My Work helps us really, truly see what is on our plate for a given day in a task list form - we did not have this capability before.""The automations are fantastic for rewarding progress.""The possibility of having multiple boards is indeed a great feature that allows us to see the many projects (and their progress) at a glance.""Automations are the most useful aspect of the solution."

More monday.com Pros →

"The feature that I have found most valuable is the XFlow, that interface is pretty cool.""There were probably about five or six metrics that we used. As a result, the groups that I supported were consistently ranked at the absolute top of the organization, as we were leveraging these built-in tools for tracking.""Clarity PPM's strongest features are project and resource management.""The dynamism of the application where you can modify it to fit your needs is valuable. For example, you can create fields, metrics, and measures on the fly. You don't have to be limited to what the out-of-the-box format would be. It allows you to generate fields, metrics, and reports off of that with relative ease.""Broadcom Clarity PPM's most valuable feature is the plenty of modules, such as portfolio, project, resource, and time.""The interfaces for project management, portfolio management, and reporting services are always helpful.""Broadcom Clarity PPM is robust and flexible, and all the functionality sets are in one place.""The most useful feature for me as an implementer of Broadcom Clarity PPM is its extensibility. The tool is pretty extensible, and I haven't had any issues with it in terms of it getting used for multiple scenarios and for multiple clients where there's a need for high customization. Broadcom Clarity PPM is a very, very customizable tool, so you can pretty much implement any business process on it with no issues."

More Broadcom Clarity PPM Pros →

"We have found the solution to be stable.""The initial setup is simple.""The valuable features of the JIRA Portfolio are the customization it provides which is very useful and the Agile project management capability.""Jira's Structure, agile, and Kanban boards are helpful. I also like JQuery, which allows you to fetch the relevant set of data. We use JQuery, JQL, and the Structure board a lot. Kanban boards help us monitor daily tasks, and we review the progress using the burndown charts.""The most valuable feature of the JIRA Portfolio is the many features it provides, such as code integration, documentation, roadmap, and Eclipse. The solution is useful for product managers.""Portfolio's most valuable features are that it's user-friendly and customer-centric.""Jira Portfolio is useful for tracking time and hours. It's easy to manage, create tickets, and change the status of delivery reports. It's not complicated.""Its stability is very reliable."

More JIRA Portfolio Pros →

Cons
"The solution shouldn't let the system directly pull out Outlook (the Windows default mail system) whenever we click on an email address.""There are so many bells and whistles that I don't feel like I'm using Monday to its full potential.""I would love to be able to have a chat option with Monday.com's IT so that if I'm looking to add a new view or experience to our planning boards, they could easily talk me through the best option.""The solution could be improved by adding more plugins for Adobe (not just Photoshop) and adding a plugin for Discord.""Having more integrations for different specialties that use Monday would be great.""I wish there were better notifications and dashboard views with analytics around the status of projects, etc.""The pricing is a bit steep, and it's built on tiers rather than incremental users (not ideal for a small company that's adding people slowly).""A little more customization on the UI would be good."

More monday.com Cons →

"One of the major pain points for me when it comes to Broadcom Clarity PPM is the new UI. The new UI is very good in terms of functionality and the drag and draw features, but it's not very responsive. When I say that it's not very responsive, what I mean is that sometimes, the tool is not very user-friendly. For example, a user saves a value on the form, but the tool doesn't give any indication to the user that the value has been saved. Some users are moving from the classic UI to the new UI, and end up getting confused because on the classic UI, when you click "Save", it'll save the information and you'll get an indication that it was saved. With the new UI, it auto saves the information, but it doesn't give an indication in the form of a popup box that "this form has been saved", or any type of message indicating that the information was successfully saved. It's been confusing for users who move to the new UI because of that. The users don't understand when the values are being saved or not being saved, even if there's an auto-save feature in the new UI.""The user interface (UI) needs to be improved. Right now, it's not the best.""In the future, I would like to see integrated Agile features and better integration with Agile tools.""The solution could improve the way the workflow is developed. I think they could be more dynamic because they are in a way static. They're very powerful, but they don't have any interaction with end-users.""Clarity PPM would be improved by developing better support for the Agile framework.""Broadcom Clarity PPM could improve by adding advanced reporting in the tool. There are a lot of out-of-the-box reports, but I would like to see more advanced reporting.""One of the things that have always been a bit painful is the integration with reporting utilities. The current integration is with Jaspersoft, and there are a number of difficulties with that. If you're using out-of-the-box fields and everything, it is a bit slow and clunky. It has a drag-and-drop interface for the users. On the backend side, there is a report designer. They haven't given or allowed me any training on it yet. So, it has been a bit limited in its features. On one of the earlier report utilities, they had one called Actuate, which had VBA as its base programming language, and you could do quite dynamic things behind the scenes, whereas the Jaspersoft interface seems rather locked. So, you're limited in your options. Being a programmer, you like to have room to be able to invent and create rather than just being limited to a few selection boxes.""In terms of what could be improved, the end user interface could be improved to be more intuitive, because we sometimes have issues with customization. Sometimes we are not able to customize everything for the end user's interface, and they require more customization. We should be able to perform a deeper customization here."

"The kanban board could also use some more filters. We just had a project where the deployment for Jira didn't have any ETA, and it's a requirement for the client. We accommodate a lot of issues on the board, so the workaround was to create boards by project, not client.""Portfolio is easy to scale, but we've had some difficulties with it regarding compliance and support.""If you want to generate a report for individual usage, it's difficult.""An improvement would be if Portfolio were integrated with Office 365.""Jira has room for improvement in terms of managing various projects and linking requirements centrally under one project. They could include some add-ons that enable you to link all the requirements and put them into a centralized place. That central place should be restricted to a limited set of users with privileges based on user groups with those rights.""Their interface is a little unique and I think that's partly because the core of the product has morphed into several sub-products, but the underlying architecture has stayed the same on all of them in that it was originally a help desk ticketing system. It's a very tech-focused product and that's fair given its origins, but if they really want to expand their community of users, then they're going to have to move beyond that a little bit and polish it up.""The HR aspect of the solution could be improved.""It's got kind of a steep learning curve."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "I wasn't involved with the licensing, but I believe it's negotiable."
  • "The solution is quite inexpensive. For example, we pay $8,500 for 75 users. It's somewhere around $100 a user, approximately."
  • "The project manager would be responsible for any licensing fees. As an end-user, we just follow suit."
  • "Fees are paid monthly per user."
  • "The price is reasonable for the number of users we have."
  • "I am using its free version."
  • "We tell others it's about $2200 for a ten-person plan and it can be adjusted; it's easy to scale."
  • More monday.com Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "Broadcom Clarity PPM costs us $500K, and that's only for the installation and kick off within the first year. For each succeeding year, it could cost $200K."
  • "There are different licensing models with Broadcom Clarity PPM. With the software as a service model, you pay as you go, and if you are on-premises, you can buy a perpetual license and an annual fee for maintenance."
  • "Cost-wise, the tool is very expensive and some tools might be able to cater to 80% of the functionality provided by Broadcom Clarity PPM but are not as expensive."
  • "The price point of Broadcom Clarity PPM is less than Planisware. If a customer comes to me, and the cost is the main parameter for the selection of a tool, then I'll recommend Broadcom because cost-wise, they are less than other solutions."
  • "The licensing costs are a little bit high, and unfortunately, it has been a while since I've had that paperwork in front of me. I don't remember how much it was, but it seemed like it was fairly high. It is probably comparable to some of the other solutions because I do know that, for example, on a lot of the AWS stuff, they found that the costs wound up being higher than having some on-prem solution. Comparatively, Clarity is within the price range of other solutions."
  • More Broadcom Clarity PPM Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The price could be improved."
  • "We have a license to use JIRA Portfolio, we are not using the free version."
  • "Portfolio is well-priced - a license for ten users costs $100 or $150 a month."

    Reviews from Real Users

    monday.com stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are its task status feature and its ability to integrate with external apps. PeerSpot users take note of the advantages of these features in their reviews:

    Ben D., Front End Developer at a marketing services firm, writes of the product, “Their flagship feature, what used to be called the pulse, is great. Pulse offers great management. Being able to see everything at a glance and check task status, is wonderful. They use subtasks and the simple aspects of task management have been really helpful.”

    Another PeerSpot reviewer, the Head of Projects at Smart Media SA, notes, “The boards offer an amazing and clear view of my tasks, campaigns, and progress. Automations especially with Slack and Outlook help with keeping my team up-to-date always. Graphs and charts are valuable for reporting purposes and to track progress made. Workforms/surveys are valuable and a very cool added feature.”
