Hi Olaf,


It would seem to me that this comparison is not completely updated. Can you let me know if that is the case? And if it is not updated, any chance someone can provide an update?


Thanks,

Jaime


I agree. It's not fully updated. Also, this is written more for marketing purposes, not end-users that are trying to make decisions. It would be nice to have a real-world practical comparison of features.

Hi,


Bumping this thread as it would be great if we could get an updated comparison between Classic and Smart projects.


Thanks,

Jaime


Hi all,


this is the very simple list, but contains every difference. No description, fact, but I am curious how could we expand it? What else would you like to have in here? 


We'll have internal meeting regarding that topic in few weeks, so it should produce some article or presentation we'll be happy to share with you. But every feedback until so is highly appreciated.

Hi Olaf,


I am not really looking for you to expand it, I was just inquiring if it was up-to-date. That is, if everything that is listed is still actually the case.


I am looking to make a business case for switching from Classic to Smart and knowing that the list is up-to-date really helps.


thanks,

Jaime


We're still with classic, due to some missing features in how more complex projects can be handled.
A prospective end user doesn't just need to know what's better with Smart Projects, but also be aware of the trade-offs regarding missing features.


I agree with Jan's point. I was brought in to XTRF with Smart Projects and told it was our solution. We know are feeling the limitations and need to consider training on Classic as well. If we had been told the differences and trade offs up front, we would have been able to plan for our transition better, and make a better informed decision on how to use XTRF. And not to nitpick, but items like, "Customer Portal “Request a quote / Launch a project” button behavior" doesn't mean anything. Or "Built in new technologies" doesn't help me make a decision.

I do want to point out the difficulties in maintaining two separate systems, Smart projects and Classic projects. If they both have to be maintained it would require a huge amount of developing effort. There should be some fast transition that would make the Smart projects more upfront and used.


We have chosen to use the Smart projects because of the easy to understand look and feel and has expandable features. Also we have been told that everybody within no-time would use Smart projects so that all the developers could work on new features for this.
