I've got the same challenge and have been researching options for the past few months and have not found an ideal solution yet. Would be helpful to hear from others who've found a solution.
Spider Project may meet your expectations. But it is hard to be sure because you did not specify your requirements and industry.
I personally consider tracking as the next step after good resource constrained planning that is largest contribution to project success.

We are using MS Project to manager Scrum based projects. So, it is not the tools you use, it is the process you use and how well the tool can fit for it.
Good processes are required but they shall be supported by the right tool that can give reliable information for informed decision making. Ideally this tool shall also simulate existing risks and uncertainties.
It looks like Julio met the problems that MS Project 2007 and Excel cannot solve.
Interesting your question
Thanks for sharing
Already know microsoft project 2019 in the cloud?
I think it might be a solution
I wish you a happy holidays
The tool may help with informed decision making only if right processes are implemented. But from the other hand project management processes depend on the tools that are used.
I understood that Julio needs the tool that can calculate multiproject (portfolio) schedule taking into account all existing constraints and collect reports from multiple project stakeholders.
I am always curious about these questions. Great looking at what is available, but from an organizational and architectural aspect, is selecting a new capability solely based on an individual's needs?
So where do we start? What are the requirements for the new capability, e.g, what problem are we trying to solve? What gaps exist with the current tool(s)? Have there been conversations with IT, Enterprise Architecture, Compliance, Vendor Management? Cloud or on-premise? Integrations with current technology stack and other capabilities within the ecosystem
Lots of questions and rigor that is involved in the decisions that go on behind the scenes to bring in a new solution to the organization.
the core need is functionality. The tool that fits to all requirements that you listed and company ecosystem but does not do what is needed is of little value if not useless at all. But in any case tool selection shall start with the creation of the requirements list.
