Each project was managed individually, with managers producing reports aligned with their own specific models and standards. Now, with the system’s deployment, we have a complete picture of the progress made across all projects and a broad view of all initiatives.

Vale is a Brazilian mining company with global operations, including offices in Brazil and 30 other countries. A world leader in iron and nickel ore mining, the company also works with steel, energy and logistics.
The company needed a project and portfolio management solution that would meet best practice requirements as defined by the PMI Institute and offer robust information security and availability in the cloud.
Vale decided to deploy CA Project & Portfolio Management to better manage the investment projects related to the maintenance of its ports and railway sites in Brazil. The solution is currently used by PMOs, project planners, and all managers from the Current Logistic Project Investment department, as well as internal customers.
Today, Vale can better manage its current logistics investment projects due to alerts generated by the system. The deployment also provided significant financial benefits – both in terms of the ability to better track project costs and reduce spending through the self-management of company initiatives.
