PPM Administrators and your tools

Hi,

Anyone who is a PPM Administrator out there, could you share any tools, utilities, hints or tips you use to perform your job, or make your job looking after PPM more productive and easier?

In my oppinion there is not much you need apart from the ppm workbench and probably an exernat sql tool (like sqltools http://www.sqltools.net/). If you need to monitor your instances yourself, you may want to have something like nagios, but in most companies that would probably be a job for a central team in the IT department.

I agree.
If anything I might use Excel a fair bit.
Workbench is your friend and SQL are your friends! :-)

Toad and Crystal reports, remember PPM is not a reporting tool.

Hi,

If you need access to the app on the unix box, I use Putty. And also get familiar with some unix commands. They come in handy when modifying certain configuration files and viewing various logs within the system.
