Just to be clear, when we are designing and recreating the solution design, we have to be fair with the scope. We need to use all the components to improve the functionality. We have to use all the components available. XFlow, IT PAM, all the tools that can be used to improve the functionality, because competition is getting very hard. This makes it very difficult because I have 12 years working with CA components and CA technologies. So for me to switch from CA, from Broadcom, is sometimes kind of hard because I am a Broadcom implementer. On a scale of one to ten, I would give Broadcom Clarity PPM an eight. The user interface should be improved to be able to receive any challenges from the users. They expect an easier interface, an easier way to find the sections, and an easier way to find the menus. I think that would be the biggest improvement.

I'm not sure of the exact version of the solution, however, I believe it to be some aspect of version 12 - potentially 12.4. It's an older on-premises version. Overall, I would rate the solution ten out of ten.

I would say that the support and the community of Broadcom is pretty extensive and it's actually very good. I did not use it initially, but I would suggest that you should use the support and the community that is available for Clarity. We were lucky to have good initial support so I didn't have to struggle that much because I got enough knowledge transfer to get me through. I would rate this solution an eight out of 10.

Think about processes before implementing the solution. Then, connect the processes with the solution and make sure the solution is supporting the processes, and not that the processes need to be adjusted to fit to the solution. The most important criteria when selecting a vendor is to have a good balance between cost and functionality.

If anyone is looking for a Project and Portfolio Management tool, then I highly recommend CA Clarity PPM. Of all the PPM tools we had tried, Clarity PPM is the most robust, multi-functional and reliable tool.

I don't know of what the actual costs of the solution were. I recommend PPM. I'd advise against changing functionality on the box, however.

Broadcom Clarity PPM costs us $500K, and that's only for the installation and kick off within the first year. For each succeeding year, it'll cost you $200K.

System, Value, and Decision failures bring the grinding wheel to a halt As put by a Quality guru, People in general, more than 80% of the team are, in fact, productive and efficient. The problem then is with the chosen few who have an efficient short-term view but high-risk performance focus.

A lot depends on the size of the organization number of Projects that need to be migrated, the number of Project Managers, Programs, Portfolios, and so on. While the schedule and timeline are critical for the Assignment or Change Management Project, the cost of migration is usually ignored citing reasons like internal resource deployment, Knowledge Management, Capability Building and Resource E...

Cybersecurity had been recognized as a Fifth War Domain a while back: Land, Sea, Air, Space, Cyber.  As such, planning for war is important since it provokes managers to THINK.  While the plans that these managers develop are mostly useless since these plans become mostly irrelevant when the Cyber Battle ensues. Preparedness, counterintelligence, logistics, skills, adaptability, and distributed decision-making become more important as compared to PMI principles and best practices ( 'the disciplined agile' should be included and focused on as part of the adaptability;-)).
