| FEATURES

Project portfolio management software helps you plan for success.

Strategic Roadmaps for Continuous Planning

Eliminate annual planning and build top-down plans in minutes–adding work, resources and budgets with drag-and-drop ease. Our project portfolio management software enables teams to communicate business outcomes across the organization, allowing stakeholders to agree on a common set of objectives.

Working with Teams Across Portfolios

Define teams, change them on the fly and move them between investments. Automatically update project financials with the actual time spent on each task. Managers can see teams' start and finish dates, booking status, estimated time of completion, total allocations and total actuals.

Task Boards for a Shared Understanding

Create a visual task list on the Clarity PPM (formerly CA Project Portfolio Management) task boards. This project portfolio management software provides your own process flow, assign staff to tasks and prioritize work. Keep all team members in synch and share your plans with other groups and executives.

Project Blueprints for Faster Planning

Get projects up and running in minutes. Configure the standard Clarity PPM project template to fit any team’s needs. Add project details, insert page sections, pick modules–such as tasks, financials and documents–and select from a growing library of KPI gauges. 

Familiar Financials for Deeper Analysis

The ability to easily access, view and modify project data is key to ensuring budgets are well spent. Clarity PPM’s financial planning pages have been redesigned to mimic Microsoft Excel® spreadsheets in both look and feel. Connect this project portfolio management software to your favorite BI software, including Power BI and Tableau.

The Right Team for the Job With Modern Resource Management

Information about worker allocations should be at your fingertips. Clarity PPM provides one consolidated view of each employee’s project queue and their schedule. Managers explore staffing options with telescoping and pinning features that replace outdated filtering and matching tools.

Clarity PPM helps teams succeed in every role.
