"The most useful feature for me as an implementer of Broadcom Clarity PPM is its extensibility. The tool is pretty extensible, and I haven't had any issues with it in terms of it getting used for multiple scenarios and for multiple clients where there's a need for high customization. Broadcom Clarity PPM is a very, very customizable tool, so you can pretty much implement any business process on it with no issues.""The solution is technically fine and user friendly.""Broadcom Clarity PPM is a high-value product that helps users become productive. It's a very stable, scalable, and fast platform, even from a self management perspective.""It's very good out of the box, without configurations required.""The interfaces for project management, portfolio management, and reporting services are always helpful.""The feature that I have found most valuable is the XFlow, that interface is pretty cool.""Broadcom Clarity PPM is robust and flexible, and all the functionality sets are in one place.""Broadcom Clarity PPM's most valuable feature is the plenty of modules, such as portfolio, project, resource, and time."

Cons
"It should just have the integration with Jira. We haven't looked at it since Atlassian bought the product."

More AgileCraft Cons →

"The user interface (UI) needs to be improved. Right now, it's not the best.""In terms of what could be improved, the end user interface could be improved to be more intuitive, because we sometimes have issues with customization. Sometimes we are not able to customize everything for the end user's interface, and they require more customization. We should be able to perform a deeper customization here.""The solution could improve the way the workflow is developed. I think they could be more dynamic because they are in a way static. They're very powerful, but they don't have any interaction with end-users.""Broadcom Clarity PPM could improve by adding advanced reporting in the tool. There are a lot of out-of-the-box reports, but I would like to see more advanced reporting.""The Broadcom Clarity PPM dashboard needs improvement , because it's too slow. The look and feel of the platform, including its UX, also need some enhancement.""In the future, I would like to see integrated Agile features and better integration with Agile tools.""Whenever that second instance of Clarity came about, it was overwhelming even to people who were accustomed to working with program management tools.""Broadcom Clarity PPM should improve how the reports are being generated and contracts management."
