This software is truly an asset to any company who is willing to put the time, money and resources (human) behind utilizing it to its fullest potential. If you are not ready to completely switch over to this program (leave all other software behind), then do not make the jump!

Pros

If everyone is one board to learn this program, you are in for a real treat.

Cons

Very hard to become proficient at unless you read all online, free resources, and then pay a lot of money to learn the next layer of information at workshops, followed by paying more money for the private consultation to answer follow-up, in-depth questions pertaining to your firms' standard practice.

Advice to Others

Sit and visit with someone who uses it from an accounting, administrative, principal, AND project manager position

Cobra is a good earned value system. Great for meeting the government reporting requirements and for managing cost/schedule on projects.

Pros

Easy to use, V8 looks like MS products latest versions, multiple ways a user can get to what they need. Excellent tool for earned value management.

Cons

Not a lot, upgrades sometimes create new issues and have to wait for a patch/fix to come out.

Advice to Others

Would recommend using this tool for a company's EV tool, especially with its integration with Open Plan and PM Compass.

I have been using open plan for about four years and PMC and Acumen more recently. I like how all of these tools (including Cobra) work with each and have found them to be user friendly.

Pros

Accuracy and integration with Cobra to calculate EV.

Cons

Unforgiving at times - greater use of undo function would be nice.

Advice to Others

PPM suite is a good collection of tools and I recommend it.

The updates get implemented automatically without the need to upgrade on-site servers, and the customer service is always very prompt.

Likes Least

Most times you have to start with the lowest level of help desk before getting bumped up to someone that actually knows what they are doing. It would be nice to have 1 or even a few experts that were assigned to you so you could build a relationship and skip on some of the frustration of having a novice send you something they copied and pasted out of a manual.

Recommendations

Use the online tools and discussion boards available to you. It helps you learn about new or un-used features as well as some little tricks to make things easier.

I like that updates are automatically applied and scheduled during non-business hours after our db is backed up and I don't need to ever lift a finger

There isn't anything I don't like at this point. Works well.

Our organization purchased Open Plan and COBRA over 8 years ago. However, we didn't really know much about either application before doing so. The Deltek consultants were very helpful in helping us get each one set up and ready for use. The problem was we didn't start using them on a regular basis or commit resources to them full time, so our knowledge base and expertise didn't evolve. Open Plan proved to be more robust than we needed at the time and we stopped using it. COBRA is used for only specific projects, mainly EVM related, and has provided us some nice benefits. But we still don't have a good handle on all of the functionality, which is holding us back a little.
My suggestion is to invest time and resources to these products to get a better ROI.

Pros

Cobra reports are created as Excel files.
Easy budget re-calculation, budget import.

Cons

The integration wizard is a little quirky.

Currently we are working towards a enterprise wInsight database. There are many new structures and unique programs that must have special considerations.
