Ooh’s and Aah’s From CA World

I'm blogging this week from CA World '13 at Mandalay Bay in fabulous Las Vegas.

I’m blogging this week from CA World ’13 at Mandalay Bay in fabulous Las Vegas.  It’s just the first day of the event, but I’m already hearing buzz and excitement from attendees about the upcoming release of CA ClarityTM PPM, especially with regards to the updated portfolio management capabilities revealed by Lokesh Jindal (General Manager, Service & Portfolio Management) and Michael Lester (VP, Product Management) in presentations this morning.2013-04-21 16 59 32

Some of the attendees I’ve been speaking to are challenged by lack of visibility into their enterprise portfolios, and are concerned that they are spending their limited portfolio investment funds on non-strategic activities, reducing the likelihood that they will achieve the goals of the business and maintain or improve their competitive position in the marketplace. That’s a real problem. Without insight into all the demands across the business, and the capacity from a financial, resource and time perspective to satisfy them, there is no way to prioritize their enterprise portfolio effectively to maximize return on investment.

This is why I think the updated portfolio management capabilities in CA Clarity PPM are so attractive to the attendees at CA World. Last night the intuitive waterline portfolio view gained some ooh’s and aah’s on the exhibition center floor, and with good reason. This capability empowers the PMO to make better decisions about the use of budgets, time and resources, modeling scenarios to fit business goals and limitations.

If you’re at CA World this week, I encourage you to stop by the Exhibition Center floor to see the latest version of CA Clarity in action. Specifically, I recommend the following sessions:

What’s New in CA Clarity PPM – Tuesday, April 23 at 8:30 a.m. in South Pacific F

Customer Panel: Realizing the Benefits of Portfolio Management – Tuesday, April 23 at 10:00 a.m. in Islander G

Portfolio Management in CA Clarity 13.2 Deep Dive – Tuesday, April 23, at 11:15 a.m. in Islander H

If you cannot attend CA World, check back here  in a couple of weeks for postings of some of the presentations.

As always, you can visit http://www.ca.com/us/project-portfolio-management.aspx to learn more about the CA Clarity solution, and follow @CAClarity on Twitter for news on upcoming webcasts that will cover these new capabilities.

    This is a good case study. 2.3 sec’s off a login transaction is big.

    While the analysts were hyping DevOps, I posted the oversight of not including security as part of that discussion as you are highlighting here. Instead of just talking DevOps, it should be DOS (what’s old is new again :-) – DevOpsSec. As a previous AppDev person, it’s the app, who’s using it, why and where rather than the device and having the service available.

    As you rightly point, out Security should be baked into the solution.

    Nice Post and Timely!

      Thank you for your feedback Michele. Agreed – security cannot be overlooked. Appreciate your input!

    I love the idea of BYOID! This makes me choose if I am almost anonymous (with my Hotmail Nicname) or official with identity from an official organisation. My Identity Provider will attach identity with right level of LoA according to the need of the Service provider.

      Thank you for your comment. BYOID has tangible benefits for end users and relying parties but it also has to be weighed in the balance with potential risks and liability concerns. It will be interesting to see how BYOID plays out in the enterprise.
