“CA PPM™ functionality continues to evolve as Project Management theory and practice matures. The Project Management Institute’s “Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK)™” is one of the key drivers of this evolution. The Project Management Professional (PMP) Certification, based on the PMBOK, is becoming the required credential in many of the Project Management and Program Management Office organizations using CA PPM.

This presentation examines the 47 “Project Management Processes” described in the 5th edition of the PMBOK, and identifies how CA PPM features can be used to support each of them. This analysis will be particularly useful in showing a PMP who has not previously used CA PPM where the value is!"

Meeting Details Coming Soon!

That's it for now folks but I'm sure there will be a lot more soon! Take a moment to get on the discussion in CA Clarity and make your voice heard!

Getting to know Georgy Joseph


Job Title: CA PPM Consultant


Based out of: Chennai, India


What do you enjoy about your work: My job as a CA PPM Consultant at CapGemini gives me enough challenges to keep me interested in this great PPM tool even after a long 6 years. It feels great to listen to new business scenarios every day from our clients demanding new custom things to be developed in Clarity. The path of research, coding, testing and releasing these features for our needy users makes my work enjoyable to the core.


About your family: I was born and brought up in Kerala, India. My Dad worked in the financial sector and Mom in the state government. Both are retired now and leading a relaxed life. I am the younger one in the family and I have an elder sister who is married and has 3 great kids.


Favorite 3 movies of all time: Transcendence, Interstellar, The Gods Must Be Crazy


Favorite book: The Secret by Rhonda Byrne


Favorite hobbies: Blogging, Movies, Music


Interesting fact about yourself: Clarity PPM is my first love and will never leave her ever!!! I also love blogging and SEO. Have a Christian blog which takes 50% of my time outside office. It was created in 2008 and is still alive although the update frequency has gone down a lot. Whatever time I have left with me after these two, I will be utilizing it for watching all the latest movies as that is the 3rd thing I won’t be able to live without.
