CA PPM Other Solutions Considered

Angela Strous
PPM Product Owner at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees
In my previous job, I was doing a side-by-side pilot with PPM and a competitor. There were pros and cons to both. Nobody is perfect in the space. Some of the downfalls and frustrations are when, coming into a new organization, it has been over-customized or they have over-engineered things. So, keeping us safe from ourselves, while still giving us flexibility, would be a great way to do that. View full review »

IT Project Manager at IBERIABANK
They brought me in to comment on it's Agile functionality and they said, "We have this Rally product." And I said, "Does that integrate?" They said, "It could." I said, "Don't worry about it." I use Trello today, I used JIRA, I used Team Foundation Server. I talked to some people here at the CA World conference and I said, "Are any of those tools worse or better than Rally?" They seemed to like those tools more. I haven't used Rally to tell you the truth. View full review »
Rosemary Thibault
Product Manager at a healthcare company with 10,001+ employees
We have different tools that we use at where I am at, so we use different PPM tools, but the goal is eventually to move us all to CA PPM. It is just because we are using that as more of a global tool. Some of our other areas of our company use different tools, and we are just trying to get them off of that and really focus on using the PPM tool. View full review »
Senior Director at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees
I have not looked at the competitors lately, but it seems to me that CA has made some significant advances. They were already sort of in the top tier in the industry anyway. So, it is good to see the investment that they have put in the last couple years. It seems to be just accelerating the feature sets. View full review »
Program Management at a tech vendor with 1,001-5,000 employees
There were two others. They fell short in a few things that were absolute must-haves. Although, they were working on getting those features available, they were not there, and we just could not move forward with them. View full review »
Pat Flanik
Project Manager at Premier Health
It was based on our enterprise manager's recommendation from another system that we had talked to. I do not really know all of the background that went behind that, but I know this came to us. This was really one of the only products we had looked at. It was just the next step where we as an organization needed to go. We were very impressed. It was really getting our organization to buy into the process more than the product. The product, having all of the features which are available, is the reason that we wanted to go that route.

We looked at CA and we also looked at Planview and HPE. View full review »
Mike Larma
Manager at Geha
We looked at staying with our current solution, which was Project Server, and seeing how we could leverage it. We also looked at Innotas, then CA. So, those were really the three. Innotas had a great portfolio functionality, but its project management was very basic. Its resource management was kind of non-existent. So, CA had the full package. It really had everything that we wanted. View full review »

Workfront was one of the vendors. We went with the CA solutions because headquarters was going with CA PPM, so we decided to move in that direction. View full review »

Systems Administrator at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
Changepoint. It pretty much came down to Changepoint and CA. From the other ones that we looked at, this was the obvious choice for us after doing a PoC. View full review »

I was not a part of that evaluation. I'm going to say "yes", we evaluated other solutions, but I don't know who they were. View full review »
Senior Developer at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees
As per the focused areas like Project management, Financial Management, etc., the organizations should weigh all suitable products in market w.r.t. time and cost involved (e.g., HP PPM, Planview, etc.). The objective should be a benefit in medium to long term, as some solutions may save money in short term but can turn out to be expensive later. I would suggest to go through the comparison reports, blogs, and demonstrations of the products before making the final call. View full review »

Process Manager
We evaluate if the solution is the right one for us once a year, therefore we are compare different alternatives. On our short list, there was CA which is the product that we have now. Additionally, we evaluated Microsoft Project. From a functionality perspective, both were very similar, but we already used CA products for several years. We decided to stay with CA because the integration effort would otherwise be high. View full review »

I have used some of the other products on the market before, and some of those are a little bit more user-friendly, but again that may be solved with the newer version. View full review »

Senior Manager at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees
We started evaluated some tools related to PPM. CA PPM accomplished our necessities, especially for Latin America. We looked at HPE PPM. I can't remember why we did not chose them though. View full review »
