Broadcom Clarity (formerly CA Project Portfolio Management)

CA PPM is especially good for Agile Framework users from big companies because big companies cannot use only PMI based Project Management frameworks, but also have to use an appropriate project Agile frameworks (like Scrum, Kamban). So you have to use both of them on the appropriate projects. In this case if you don't use one tool for both frameworks you could get stuck for doing resource management. CA PPM is solving this problem perfectly.

Celoxis

Celoxis is a great option if you are looking for an affordable, easy to use, easy to integrate project manegement solution. It is very powerful for waterfall project management. I evaluated more than 15 platforms and could not find any with a close evaluation in terms of cost-benefit to Celoxis. Of course there are more powerfull tools, for 10 times the price. So far, for project management, there hasn't been a requirement I haven't been able to solve with some work.It really lacks features for Agile methodologies, even if it provides a Kanban view, so far it doesn't provide and additional agile artifacts. If an organization has already reached a very mature project management practice and needs to improve on program and portfolio management, Celoxis won't provide any useful feature. If the organization has the resources (skills and time mostly) to develop some workflows and customization, it might work but with a limit. Hopefully Celoxis addresses these features in the near future.

Pros

Broadcom Clarity (formerly CA Project Portfolio Management)

  • CA PPM is for all types of employees with busy schedules or who can not work in the office at a certain time.
  • Supports Scrum, Kanban and other Agile Frameworks. It's very important for a PPM tool because Agile Transformation is the Top Trend. Every PPM tool has to work with both frameworks.
  • CA Clarity's analysis functions are impressive, and give the best clean graphic representations depend on your data. The software, overall, is very feature-rich.
  • Allows you to provide the right amount of detail within the stories and acceptance criteria. From tasks to stories, stories to features, and so on.

  • Time log
  • Efforts analysis vs plan

Cons

Broadcom Clarity (formerly CA Project Portfolio Management)

  • The best side is also the bad side: It requires too much effort to link stories to features, it's too hard to see the details and requires too much effort to do that.
  • Because it is feature-rich tool learning the tool took a while, so that training must do so as well.
  • The features are all a little bit hidden. It would be better to improve the UI with UX.
  • License cost is quite high as compared with other tools like JIRA.

Celoxis

  • Support is at times slow to respond.
  • Not new user-friendly.
  • Not able to pull in closer or zoom the interface.

Alternatives Considered

Broadcom Clarity (formerly CA Project Portfolio Management)

  • Agile framework support is the best attribute for CA PPM.
  • Integrating capability within your whole back office (HR, Finance, P2P, ...)
  • Story linking capability is a distinctive feature in our purchase of this product.
  • It is so customizable inside the CA PPM where you can set up all types of filters. This is the best part of Clarity for me.

Celoxis

I used an evalaution matrix built with input of several stakeholders in the company. In the end the matrix included 100 features (non of them was price related). The matrix was heavily focused on waterfall project management, agile related features were only 5 out of 100 features. Features were labeled as mandatory, required or optional. Products which lacked a mandatory feature (like providing technical support) were disqualified. Then a price vs features evaluation was made and only the products with the best combination were seleced to continue: Celoxis, ITM Platform and Mission Control. A final technical evaluation was made comparing the full evaluation but also the evaluation of only the 40 required features. Overall, Celoxis was the better evaluated (76% vs 65% of the second place), for the 40 required features, Celoxis got 91% against 78% of number 2. In the end we chose Celoxis even when it had higher licensing cost.

Return on Investment

Broadcom Clarity (formerly CA Project Portfolio Management)

  • CA PPM made us transparent. We used the charts and graphs to show executives our progress for every iteration. There was no need to progress meetings so everything visible.
  • We have gained the ability to link stories with tasks. In this way we were not in need of extra effort for linking them in Excel or asking over and over again for developers and stories development.
  • Single source of truth on the overall project portfolio and program. Clear insights in demand and capacity for all business departments and espacially for internal IT. There was no more need to argue on demand, capacity, priority and devlopment of projects.
