There’s not a lot that goes right with planning is there? I mean, that’s how it’s supposed to work – it’s a plan so it’s going to be wrong, but still, it’s depressing that every time we plan portfolios, projects, resource allocations, heck even when we plan planning sessions, something comes along and messes up those plans before the virtual ink is dry. What we need is someone who can constantly look at what’s happening and identify trends early enough that we can make adjustments before the plans become disrupted. But until now, we’ve never had a crystal ball in PPM. Today we do, in the shape of AI. AI’s not some magic tool that can foresee the future, ...

Dear Community Member, As you may have noticed that we have been in the process of renaming CA Client Automation to Clarity Client Automation in an effort to unify and streamline our product brand names. But many of you – our customers and partners – told us that you prefer “CA Client Automation” over Clarity Client Automation, and that the name change might prove confusing to you. Based on the external and internal feedback, we have decided to rollback product name changes. As such, we will continue using the previously popular product name – CA Client Automation.   The change in product name does not have any impact on licensing, available capabilities, ...

One of the most important differences between project and product management (as I outlined in this post ) is the relationship with the target customer audience. Maintaining a perpetual & mutually beneficial relationship with customers is critical for products to be considered successful and deliver value (both real and properly perceived). Our group has taken to calling this set of skills and associated programs "customer engagement." What newly minted product managers may not realize, however -- or at least never given full consideration to -- is that there are typically three main personas in any given customer group. "Customer" here is defined as the ...

Shell scripting: CLI UI handling UI handling is usually required when guiding a user through a certain process. If every developer goes line by line, every developer will have his own "design" of UI, and his own style. Some are good, some are bad, and when having lots of questions to ask, change etc., it can become confusing very fast. Using a set of functions to actually separate the logical steps can come in handy, especially when on the CLI. The functions The functions to use can be very simple. The main reason to use functions is that in case the layout is to change, one can change the content of only the required function to spread it through the ...

Welcome back to the next article in this series. This one took a little longer to come out thanks to our "friend" the coronavirus, which in the last couple of weeks has confined most of Europe and America inside our homes. With that said, I hope you and all your loved ones are safe and healthy, and please do stay home and only go out if strictly necessary! Without further ado, let's get on with it, and I hope this article proves an interesting reading that can take your mind away from the pandemic for a few minutes. Like I mentioned at the end of the last article , one of the typical arguments you’ll see Fibre Channel proponents making — and obviously Brocade ...

Clarity is back! With the release of version 15.8 on Mar. 23, Clarity PPM will be known only as Clarity. And that's how it all started more than 20 years ago, before we were named a leader in every industry-analyst report , released strategic roadmaps or introduced Digital Product Management .

AI in PPM: Planning

Be the first person to recommend this.
AI, it's just two letters. But if you believed the hype, those two letters will steal our jobs. That hasn’t happened and it’s not going to. But now artificial intelligence and machine learning are finally a reality in a number of industry segments. Project Portfolio Management, or PPM, is one of the most exciting areas because of the importance of managing corporate investments effectively and because of the inherent uncertainty around projects. Nowhere is the benefit of AI going to be greater than in planning, and especially when it comes to ensuring the right projects are selected and allocated in the right way. This is an element of planning that has ...
