CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced innovative new enhancements to CA ClarityTM 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.
