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.

Micro Focus Project and Portfolio Management (PPM)

For Project Management, Micro Focus PPM includes all most every feature you need. You can manage your projects using work plans, project health, resource assignments, actuals, and costs. Additionally, you can get required approvals with workflows like sponsor approval or CR approvals. However, at project costing we need to make customizations due to lack of several outsource costs on it.

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.

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.

Micro Focus Project and Portfolio Management (PPM)

  • The workflow engine is perfect, but there is room for improvement. The Workflow engine script language is not capable enough. For example, if you want to call an RPC (Remote Call Procedure) you have to do it in a tricky way.
  • Each rose has a thorn. In the Workflow engine, you can configure each field's visibility and obligation state in a form depend on the status of workflow steps. Even if your approval step has passed you can still see and edit fields in the form and can save your changes.

GUI needs to be enhanced for today's technical and agile development requirements. It is very cumbersome and out-dated (at some pages)

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.
