The solution: a standard PPM system within three months
CenturyLink opted to replace its legacy systems with CA Project & Portfolio Management (formerly Clarity). Due to the critical nature of its projects, the company decided to switch to its new solution within just three months, and chose Rego Consulting to assist with and expedite the deployment.
Working closely with CenturyLink, Rego assisted with the configuration of a core version of CA Project & Portfolio Management to meet the aggressive deadline. It then developed monthly and quarterly releases that included a two-way SAP interface, a custom-built release planning solution, and a project estimation capability to automatically generate work plans. This approach enabled CenturyLink to quickly deploy and adopt the solution and then add enhancements in phases to further optimize processes as well as the value of the new solution.
Finally, Rego provided training and knowledge transfer to CenturyLink’s internal development team so that hosting and on-going performance of CA PPM could be managed in-house.
