CA PPM (previous Clarity) is an integrated suite of modules that allows your organization to seamlessly manage its services, projects, products, people and financials. It gives your executives a real-time view into their organization’s investments, initiatives and resources, and empowers your managers to deliver controlled and predictable execution of projects and programs. Built on top of the core project and portfolio management functionality are solution-specific modules that support the critical processes of IT Governance, New Product Development and Enterprise Program Management
