CA Clarity™ PPM 13.1 Empowers Enterprise Customers to Get Maximum Business Value from Resources and Budgets

Thu, 1 Nov 2012 10:49:42 EST

Innovative New Modules Provide Unified Planning, Improved Collaboration, Role-Based Resource Identification and Clearer Financial Visibility

ISLANDIA, N.Y., – CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced innovative new enhancements to CA Clarity™ Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) that help customers improve their bottom-line performance by continuously aligning the allocation of their finite resources with their constantly changing business needs.

By taking advantage of the new capabilities provided by CA Clarity PPM 13.1, enterprise customers can:

-Make smarter long-terms plans and more accurate forecasts by flexibly associating roles or named individuals to cost plans. Managers can also readily update, merge or replace cost plans associated with specific projects and portfolios.
-Make more effective decisions about investment prioritization and timing. A new portlet, which enables hierarchical views of resource allocations by investment, allows users to see where critical resources are allocated.
-More readily understand where potential issues may arise at the project, portfolio, investment and organizational level. New intuitive histogram indicators help planners better visualize projected resource capacity and demand.

What customers are saying about CA Clarity PPM 13.1

British Sky Broadcasting, a provider of the most comprehensive multi-channel, multi-platform television service in the UK and Ireland uses CA Clarity PPM for new product development.

'More than 10.4 million families in the UK and Ireland subscribe to our entertainment and communications services so new innovation is critical, and CA Clarity PPM has enabled us to make better informed decisions on how to get the best value from the company's resources,' said Moira Wedel, PPM solutions manager, British Sky Broadcasting. 'CA Clarity PPM 13.1 will expand our ability to track costs, resources, demands and capacities across departments so that we can more rapidly make decisions and reallocate projects that are in jeopardy of underperforming or going over budget.'

Office Depot, a leading global provider of office supplies and services, is using CA Clarity PPM On-Demand for resource management and status reporting for their IT projects.

'CA Clarity PPM On-Demand has enabled us to move away from manual tracking so that we can gain a better understanding of our resource utilization and improve our labor productivity,' said Christy Poe, director, IT Planning, Office Depot. 'As we continue to expand on our implementation, we look forward to using CA Clarity 13.1 to further help us automate our IT financial processes and improve upon our ability to perform capacity planning.'

On-Premise, Hosted and SaaS Delivery Models

CA Clarity PPM gives customers the choice of acquiring the new capabilities via on-premise, hosted and SaaS delivery models.

With the addition of Korean, Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese, CA Clarity PPM now supports 20 languages. CA Clarity PPM also now extends accessibility with WCAG 2.0 Level AA and Section 508 certification—as well as support for Google Chrome.

'Today's managers are under greater pressure than ever to make smart portfolio decisions, maximize productivity, and stay aligned with relentlessly changing business conditions,' said Lokesh Jindal, general manager, Service and Portfolio Management solutions, CA Technologies. 'CA Clarity PPM 13.1 uniquely provides the technology foundation necessary for meeting these critical management challenges.'

CA Clarity Agile and CA Clarity Requirements

CA Technologies also announced new releases of CA Clarity Agile (formerly CA Agile Vision™) and CA Clarity Requirements (formerly CA Product Vision), which are integrated with CA Clarity PPM 13.1.

Enhancements to CA Clarity Agile improve collaboration across virtual teams, and enable delivery teams to better understand the relationship of user stories over larger projects. Enhancements to CA Clarity Requirements help streamline the collaborative collection and ongoing management of project requirements.

Both products also now include OEM versions of Tasktop Dev and Tasktop Sync for seamless integration with third-party Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) solutions, providing maximum visibility into software projects that span multiple development environments.
