Likelihood to Recommend

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.

GenSight Enterprise Portfolio Management

GenSight Enterprise Portfolio Management is well suited for companies that want to implement top-down portfolio management capability to analyze risk vs. value, prioritize, optimize balance, maximize value and ensure strategic alignment of the global R&D portfolio. It may not be the best fit for companies that want to implement a bottom-up project management capability to track the status of programs and milestones.

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.

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.

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.

GenSight Enterprise Portfolio Management

  • The system has most certainly setup our business for success and now it's up to us to capitalize on the data contained within.
