What do you think of CA PPM?

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...

What do you think of Changepoint Daptiv?

I want to share another Daptiv PPM feature - the usage of templates and management. All of us who have managed projects, or simply structured an action plan, have looked back on previous experiences by searching our personal files, either from past work, previous projects, university assignments, etc., in order to not replicate the extensive work that sometimes means creating a plan or project from scratch. What we usually do, is use a previous plan as a reference and template, and make some adjustments based on tasks names, tasks durations, and the date. The use of Daptiv templates is highly flexible, that allows any Daptiv project to be potentially turned into a template. Daptiv use a small wizard to generate templates, in which we can save. ...

What needs improvement?

I'd like to see more power and triggers in the iOS app. For example, a similar product on the market sends you a alert on your phone if you are in a certain geographic area to remind you to do a task while in that area.
