We performed a comparison between Broadcom Clarity PPM and monday.com based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Project Portfolio Management solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"Broadcom Clarity PPM is a high-value product that helps users become productive. It's a very stable, scalable, and fast platform, even from a self management perspective."
"Clarity PPM's strongest features are project and resource management."
"The most valuable feature is the portfolio functionality because we have the ability to work with different scenarios and many kinds of financial management. We can integrate with ERP, and with other solutions from third-party vendors. The financial model in Broadcom Clarity PPM, it's the most valuable aspect."
"Broadcom Clarity PPM is robust and flexible, and all the functionality sets are in one place."
"Broadcom Clarity PPM's most valuable feature is the plenty of modules, such as portfolio, project, resource, and time."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"The templates were always the best part as not starting from scratch made the process so much easier."
"I really really like the sort by name or dates functions as they toggle and make being able to offer super-quick organization a breeze, especially when client-facing."
"Monday is a great way to have history and a backup for all the work done."
"I especially like the dashboards where you can combine info from different boards into one."
"I love being able to set up alerts."
"The newest feature of "My Work" is my favorite."
"There are so many automations to streamline everyday tasks and reduce click counts when doing admin work. It is incredible."
"I love the ability to communicate within the app itself by leaving comments."
"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."
"Clarity PPM would be improved by developing better support for the Agile framework."
"The Broadcom Clarity PPM dashboard needs improvement , because it's too slow. The look and feel of the platform, including its UX, also need some enhancement."
"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."
"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."
"Whenever that second instance of Clarity came about, it was overwhelming even to people who were accustomed to working with program management tools."
"Broadcom Clarity PPM should improve how the reports are being generated and contracts management."
"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."
"I have never not found a feature I want."
"As a new hire, it was a bit complex for me to learn and understand how to use Monday."
"Having easier access to training videos on how all features can interact with one another would be helpful."
"Monday is excellent for collaboration between partners and team members, however, it would be great if there could be a way to have clients on Monday, and not just to share information."
"It would be helpful to have a direct comparison table/spreadsheet for Monday.com versus Asana and the many other project management software platforms."
"More demos on how to navigate and set up certain functions could be helpful."
"We have difficulties playing with automation."
"It would be great to have better email integration so that you could have all of your inboxes consolidated there."
