I'm Milena and I'm currently working for a client who is implementing a new version of Jira. We are currently in the phase of finding out which additional apps the customer needs. Specifically, we are now looking at a comparison of "Structure (Gantt)" vs. "Big Picture". Do any of you know the differences/advantages? Many thanks in advance!
Hi @Fabian Lim
Thanks for your answer.
The main requirements are the following:
- Time values:
Set up an aggregated view in the portfolio as a portfolio manager needs consolidated time values at project level. Estimated hours for a project should be contrasted against actual hours
- Gantt Chart:
Creation/visualisation of a Gantt chart within a project. Critical path , milestones and dependencies (if one task moves, all the other dependent tasks move as well) should be shown.
Overview of all running projects incl. key facts (timeline, budget, resources, etc.)
If you need more details please tell me.
I would go with bigpicture based on the requirements since it looks more like a ppm solution that you need.
That being said, I would recommend you try both tools before you make a final decision.
This is a video of what we built for a client: https://youtu.be/rSwyXDxgZvk
Using bipcture and a bunch of other plugins for an end to end ppm solution
Looking at your requirements, I believe that you should consider taking at look at TeamBoard ProScheduler as well. ProScheduler is resource planning scheduler and Gantt chart for Project and Portfolio.
Please take a look at 5-min demo video for more details
Hi @Milena Merten _DE_
My name is Marta, I am a Product Manager from BigPicture (Appfire). I am very glad to see that you considered implementing BigPicture for your client. I just wanted to drop this message to let you know that in case you have any questions regarding BigPicture I would be more than happy to connect and have a chat.
From the requirements you have shared, including Time values, Gantt chart and Portfolio management functionalities, it seems like BigPicture would indeed be a great solution for your client. I would be happy to walk you through those areas and hear your feedback.
@Fabian Lim thank you for recommending BigPicture, great to know it is being appreciated in the Atlassian Community.
