Strong tool with many available components

What is our primary use case?

I used to work for CA Technologies. After that, I worked for CA Partners. So I have some experience implementing these solutions. As an architect, I have designed solutions. We work with projects. We have integrated the solution where we open tickets into them, and change management. We open tickets, we track all the tickets, we re-work all the details, then we turn it into an idea in PPM. Then we convert it into a project and manage portfolios. We work with all Service Management administrations and then we have to work with the project solution. We work with IT service desks. We have worked… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "The feature that I have found most valuable is the XFlow, that interface is pretty cool."
  • "In terms of what could be improved, the end user interface could be improved to be more intuitive, because we sometimes have issues with customization. Sometimes we are not able to customize everything for the end user's interface, and they require more customization. We should be able to perform a deeper customization here."

What other advice do I have?

Just to be clear, when we are designing and recreating the solution design, we have to be fair with the scope. We need to use all the components to improve the functionality. We have to use all the components available. XFlow, IT PAM, all the tools that can be used to improve the functionality, because competition is getting very hard. This makes it very difficult because I have 12 years working with CA components and CA technologies. So for me to switch from CA, from Broadcom, is sometimes kind of hard because I am a Broadcom implementer. On a scale of one to ten, I would give Broadcom…

Stable and great for portfolio and project management.

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for time management, product management, resource management, and financial management. We use it for any type of governance that's needed for a project.

Pros and Cons

  • "It's very good out of the box, without configurations required."
  • "The user interface (UI) needs to be improved. Right now, it's not the best."

What other advice do I have?

I'm not sure of the exact version of the solution, however, I believe it to be some aspect of version 12 - potentially 12.4. It's an older on-premises version. Overall, I would rate the solution ten out of ten.

Technically sound, very user friendly, with good support provided

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is mostly for financial purposes. We have a finance team and it's used for time keeping as well. Those are the two major things that we use it for, financial budgeting and for time keeping. I am the tech support of our team so I'm responsible for keeping the servers working, upgrading the system and getting certain integrations and the like. I'm a software engineer.

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution is technically fine and user friendly."
  • "Could be using more updated technologies."

What other advice do I have?

I would say that the support and the community of Broadcom is pretty extensive and it's actually very good. I did not use it initially, but I would suggest that you should use the support and the community that is available for Clarity. We were lucky to have good initial support so I didn't have to struggle that much because I got enough knowledge transfer to get me through. I would rate this solution an eight out of 10.

CA PPM: Multi-functional, Robust and Scalable Architecture. On-Premise and SaaS Versions Available
Hi All, If anyone is looking for a Project and Portfolio Management tool, then I highly recommend CA Clarity PPM. Of all the PPM tools we had tried, Clarity PPM (now called as CA PPM) is the most robust, multi-functional and reliable tool. The different modules in CA PPM include Resource Management, Project Management, Portfolio Management, Timesheet Management, Financial Management and Demand Management. The technical side of this tool asks from Clarity developers skills in the following areas: XML Open Gateway (XOG), GEL scripting and NSQL. The reporting platforms supported which can be integrated to this PPM tool are Jaspersoft and Business Objects. But CA has recently dropped Business Objects support from v14.2 version onwards and has only Jaspersoft now as the reporting tool.…

Good project and portfolio management features, and the interface can be accessed from anywhere

What is our primary use case?

I am a consultant and I recommend and implement specific solutions for my clients. I am currently working on behalf of a company that implements this product for its customers. Clarity PPM is a product that I have worked with personally. It is primarily used for project management, project portfolio management, and for reporting services.

What is most valuable?

The interfaces for project management, portfolio management, and reporting services are always helpful.

What needs improvement?

Intake and demand management functionality could be better. In the future, I would like to see integrated Agile features and better integration with Agile tools. There are a lot of different teams that are using Agile tools and there is a demand for that.
