The solution: a modern and scalable PPM solution
O-I decided to replace its legacy tool with a modern, scalable software-as-a-service solution that would support new product development in Europe for the next 10 years.
The manufacturer turned to Rego Consulting to assist with the deployment of CA Project & Portfolio Management in 2013, with the consultancy also helping to later upgrade the system to CA PPM v15.1.
The system was initially used by approximately 200 users across 10 European countries to manage 750 new project requests each year, 300 projects, and circa 2,000 other work items outside new project development.
Following the upgrade, CA PPM was extended to O-I’s global IT department, further expanding the number of users and projects.
Since then, Rego has continued to support O-I in maturing its CA PPM capabilities to include project intake/idea, collaboration, resource, finance, project, and portfolio management. Scenario planning has also been introduced for both IT and new product development teams at a global level.
