Clarity PPM (formerly CA Project Portfolio Manamagement) from Broadcom company CA Technologies features project, resource, staffing and budget management; scenario comparisons; forecasting; and labor, expense, materials and equipment management.Agile and Waterfall in one strong toolWe have used CA PPM in the System Integration departments in three different sub-departments: Network, System, Datacenter. We used CA PPM especially for resolving complex resource management chaos in System Integration departments. These departments work on two different tasks: Project Management and Service Management with nearly the same resources. Because of that there was a resource management chaos. We easily solved this problem with CA PPM.,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.,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.,10,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.,Micro Focus PPM (formerly HP PPM) and JIRA Software,Micro Focus Service Manager, Asana, Zoho Projects

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.
