    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.

    I think EPM Live might be the right solution for a much smaller company, who does mainly business to business material sales. As a software company with a ramped subscription model and heavy use of Salesforce, it was not well suited to our business.

    Pros

    Broadcom

    • 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.

    • Fantastic project management features
    • Cost and Resource management features more than paid for the software
    • Social Collaboration tools improve communication between departments

    Cons

    Broadcom

    • 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.

    • This is a solid product. I do not have any suggested changes based on our experience. Cannot understand why there are any negative reviews here. The reviewer(s) must not have given the product a fair chance.

        The product is just not fitting our needs so we are looking at other alternatives. The system has gone down 3 times in the last 6 months and was down for at least half a day, timesheets have duplicate tasks, and it takes too long to save and submit. When trying to process updates it randomly changes our dates so we have to go back and fix them, sometimes tasks are lost and the system is just very confusing and hard to manipulate

        Alternatives Considered

        Broadcom

        • 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.

        EPM was easier to use, with better and simpler UI. The product was also a great combination of price and functionality compared to other tools

        Return on Investment

        Broadcom

        • 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.

        • We had to pay EPM for a solution that was, for our business, unusable
        • We gained much needed experience in working with third party software vendors
