Dear Community Member,

 

With so much going on in the CA Project and Portfolio Management Community I have consolidated recent activities in case you missed anything.

 

 

CA PPM - Ask a Question, Get an Answer (July 13 - July 20) 

It's great that we have such a vibrant community to get quick answers to questions and gain product knowledge! We have very active members jumping in to help others out all the time. The goal of the community is to respond to every members' question so that no one goes away "empty handed".

[WEBCAST] CA PPM - Resource Management – July 26, 2018 @12 p.m. ET 

Resource Management

 

Keeping track of all your resources isn’t easy. Knowing what they are currently working on, or how much time they actually spend on a specific project is close to impossible. Instead of drowning in an avalanche of Microsoft Excel sheets, map your organization in CA PPM based on skills, geography, team and availability. Run what-if scenarios to find the perfect team, and manage ad hoc staffing with a few clicks. Join us product expert Bob Werner for an overview on how you can use CA PPM to modernize your resource management.

CA PPM NY/NJ Quarterly - PPM & Power BI – Breaking Barriers to Data Transparency – June 22, 2018 

PPM & Power BI – Breaking Barriers to Data Transparency

 

Presenter by Matthew Palicki, Project Portfolio Manager, O-I

 

As O-I pursues its philosophy of “One Enterprise, One Team, One Plan”, timely and accurate PPM data is a non-negotiable tenet in order to execute the enterprise strategy. Diverse systems of record, varying levels of process and organizational maturity, and a globally dispersed population present challenges in delivering the right information to senior leaders at the right time. O-I has established an Enterprise Project Management office and is learning how to leverage the Power BI business analytics platform delivered through CA PPM OData connectors, and how it can support the needs of the Global Leadership Team. From monitoring in-flight investments via Risks and Issues dashboards and other project KPIs, to analyzing historical and current trends on the throughput of investments in the Portfolio, see how Power BI will deliver the on-demand, self-service access required by senior leaders and decision makers in order to make informed decisions and take appropriate actions.
