That sounds like two questions. The most common project management tool is probably Excel with Project a close second. The most effective tool will be the one that best fits your environment, culture and needs.

Your description:

"Objective is Automating a Project management methodology through a robust, customizable and flexible system that accommodates multiple types of projects and facilitates automation of workflows"

...does not always result in an effective tool. Tools that are highly customizable generally require high maintenance and have a high learning curve. If you get a tool that does everything from project to portfolio management, it can also be a lot of work to use in order to make sure you have all the data you need. It may be needed, and it may be worth it, I'm just pointing out the challenge.

As far as identifying a tool goes, you can find reviews of multiple tools on this site. If you click on Knowledege & Tools, below the logo, you'll find a discussion list of threads on Package Selection.

Agree with Stepahane on that..."The most effective tool will be the one that best fits your environment, culture and needs."

I am using "Clarizen" PPM Tool which has loads of useful features to Support all kinds of project execution methodologies including Agile. Has support for Mobile platform and info sharing with non-members of the tool too. You would not require MS Project, Roadmap Tools & excel sheets for Graphs separately.

Thanks Pawan, Clarizen seems interesting. Will check it out.

I also agree with Stephane last sentence.

There is probably dozen of tool that will do the job but only a few that will fit your organisation.

We used eroom years ago, but the functionality exists now in lots of systems.

If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them down? We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason.
