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.

Planview PPM Pro is best suited for Portfolio, Program and Project management. From evaluating project requests through capacity & demand management, Planview PPM Pro provides an organization the ability to strategically align their work. It's dashboard & reporting features allow a drill-down view into the work taking place at any level. Planview PPM Pro is less suited for operational/agile work management. However, it integrates very well with Planview's LeanKit application. LeanKit has a Kan-ban UI that allows teams to visually manage work, allowing them to get more of the right things done and less time managing the process. The integration allows Planview PPM Pro to be the reporting engine for the rest of the organization.

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.

Planview

  • New request workflow/kanban board helps visualize where new requests are in the process of the quote to cash/request to completion
  • The time tracking tool is tied directly to project tasks for seamless integration of time tracking, estimates, and actuals
  • The reporting capabilities and ease of use has allowed us visibility to data that we never had before
  • The tool is easily configurable by Administrators. We can add fields, change reports, add new dashboards within hours vs. days of trying to track things manually

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.

Planview

  • The base API is not a REST based interface and is difficult to use for integration with other systems in the enterprise.
  • The UI for the maintenance of the task schedule for projects can be a bit cumbersome , although the spreadsheet style editor helps somewhat. The Gantt view is not interactive.
  • The workflow engine is designed only for initial project intake, and does not allow for an integration of the work flow with the project from start to end, so it can't be used for routing artifacts like change requests, ancillary project approvals, etc.

      Because I never evaluated other tools, I would be open to considering others. Given our establishment with Innotas and the value it has provided us, separating from it would cause some organizational discomfort. However, if a tool existed with a more intuitive interface for manipulating the data and factors of projects and resources, I would be very interested.

      Still cumbersome in some areas. It really depends on the individual. I've seen very smart developers who get lost just managing tasks and logging time. Whereas others use the system with ease

      Their ability to assist and answer questions when needed is incredible. They create innovative ways to share information and help customers trouble shoot. I didn't give it a ten because I believe they could do a better job of personally reaching out to customers and providing improvement guidance based on where the customer is at and their needs at the time

      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.

      Planview PPM Pro is a suite of multiple products which makes it different from other tools. PMO-related features are easy to use. Time tracking is much less cumbersome as compared to other tools. Also, the interface is clean but UI looks a bit old school. Navigation within the tool is sleek and it's easy to switch across different parts of the tool.

      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.
