Modern solutions like CA PPM continue to raise the bar above last-generation IT demand management tools, continuously providing new features to ease the burden of the PMO, the financial manager, the resource manager and the product manager.
In the last few years, new vendors looking to exploit the large and increasingly influential project and portfolio management (PPM) market have developed modules that snap into their SaaS platforms. These vendors claim their tools are easy to install, easy to manage and save customers money. It sounds too good to be true. And for most organizations, it is.
Carefully consider whether you need a PPM solution that is only capable of providing low-level functionality for the project manager, or if your organization could benefit from PPM technology that provides 360-degree optics across your organization, delivers actionable business intelligence and enables extensive modeling and forecasting capabilities to make data-driven business decisions.
At a Glance
Todays workforce has grown accustomed to using personal technologies that make communication easy and simplify their lives. But many enterprise tools havent kept pace. Most current project and portfolio management solutions fail to provide simple ways of performing everyday tasks. They dont facilitate contextual communication that would help to solve problems, and they lack key functionality: the ability to narrow the focus to relevant data, to drill down for additional information and to efficiently forecast financials and model outcomes.
Download this whitepaper now to see how CA PPM brings more value to your business by providing 15 key features that remain unaddressed by other products on the market today.
Project and portfolio management or PPM software can make or break an organizations ability to deliver.
The recent growth in portfolio management as a strategic business function has led to many vendors of software related to elements of project execution bolting on project and portfolio management (PPM) modules. This is a clear attempt to try and get a piece of a growing, lucrative market.
Twenty five years ago, PPM software was nothing more than project management software with the ability to publish or share information across projects. It was capable of doing a lot, but none of it was intuitive and therefore wasnt particularly useful. Compared to todays solutions, those products were dinosaurs. Since then, many vendors have invested a lot of money into their solutions, developing world-class offerings that can truly support effective management of the portfolio, and, more important, of the business that portfolio drives.
Reconstructing resource management tools to simplify tasks, drive collaboration and facilitate action.
People who use technologies at home expect the same ease of use and intuitiveness for the tools they use in the workplace. But enterprise tools arent keeping up with the pace of change. Many product and portfolio management (PPM) solutions force resource managers to create entire workflows or navigate through multiple screens just to see the fundamental component of resource managementwhat their people are working on.
Resource managers also cite shortcomings such as no simple way to perform everyday tasks, communicate in context with others, drill down into key information, narrow the field of resources and forecast financials and model outcomes.
Las modernas soluciones, como CA Project & Portfolio Management (CA PPM), siguen superando el listón de las herramientas de gestión de la demanda de TI de última generación y proporcionan continuamente nuevas funciones que aligeran la carga del PMO, el gestor financiero, el gestor de recursos y el gestor de productos.
En los últimos años, los nuevos distribuidores que buscan aprovechar el gran mercado, cada vez más influyente, de gestión de proyectos y carteras (PPM) han desarrollado módulos que encajan en las plataformas SaaS. Estos distribuidores declaran que sus herramientas son fáciles de instalar, de gestionar y permiten ahorrar costes al cliente. Increíble, pero cierto. Y es así para la mayoría de las organizaciones.

Man Investments is one of the worlds largest independent alternative asset managers.
With a fast moving and diverse IT infrastructure, Man needed to be able to automate software license compliance reporting in conjunction with optimizing license usage and sourcing.
