Regardless of the industry, there are several common trends that are reshaping the business landscape. Each one has had a profound effect on the ways companies develop products, bring them to market and compete against their rivals.
The need to speed innovation is a fundamental business reality today—but so is the need to contend with finite budgets and resources. Project and portfolio management (PPM) delivers the key capabilities organizations need to straddle these competing demands, but for many businesses, the time and money required to implement on-premises PPM platforms has kept these initiatives on the back burner. With CA Project & Portfolio Management SaaS (CA PPM SaaS) your organization can leverage a comprehensive, SaaS-based PPM solution. As a result, you can harness the capabilities you need to innovate more quickly and optimize your resource investments—without having to incur the time and effort of deploying and maintaining a PPM platform on premises.
As cycles accelerate and timelines shorten, projects are being recognized—by necessity— as the delivery arm for strategy. In this environment, anything less than real-time access to real-time project data is too slow, because businesses need to know where they’re heading, not just where they’ve been. CA Project & Portfolio Management (CA PPM 15.3) has added new capabilities to support project, financial and resource management across individual initiatives and entire portfolios. We’ve also built new, embedded BI capabilities that make powerful data and insights more accessible to everyone.
Project portfolio management (PPM) software suites have evolved significantly in just the last few years.
No longer simply straightforward task–consolidation tools, they have become powerful enterprise
solutions capable of everything from investment planning and management to collaboration and
workflow automation across concurrent initiatives.
