For those of you who aren’t familiar with CA PPM (CA Clarity PPM), this post is for you. CA PPM is a true end-to-end tool set. For over a decade, it’s been one of the highest rated project and portfolio management (PPM) tools.
CA PPM operates all aspects of functionality from time tracking to resource management, all the way across the spectrum of project, program, portfolio, financial, and demand management, which is why, year after year, CA PPM is in the top quadrant in every analyst publication.
Independent Analyst Findings: CA PPM Leading Portfolio Management Tool
In the 2014 MarketScope for IT Project and Portfolio Management Software Applications, Gartner gave CA PPM a Strong Positive, the highest rating possible, and a rating that was only given to two vendors.
The Gartner report analyzed on-premise or in the cloud execution-level and portfolio-level PPM support for the integration of individual portfolios—investments, projects, assets, and IT services—and asked whether the tool could tell a holistic story about the state of the IT portfolio, including how well it enabled leaders to see proposed changes and initiatives from the perspective of cost, effort, technical complexity, feasibility, and their interrelated effects.
“Providers receiving a Strong Positive rating in this MarketScope demonstrate a strong global market presence, depth and breadth in IT PPM functionality, and integration with complementary IT software systems. They have a strong commitment to cloud hosting and made significant internal changes to accommodate a new business model without disrupting current operations.”
Lokesh Jindal, general manager, IT Business Management at CA Technologies responded to the report saying, “We are proud to receive this recognition once again, which we feel is a testament to the continuous innovation we have been driving in our PPM solution. CA PPM (CA Clarity) will continue to evolve to meet customers’ need for ensuring that their investments are focused on driving business growth and project execution by optimizing available resources for maximum benefit. Mobility, elegant user experience and out-of-the-box value is what our customers expect from us and is our core focus.”
