  • Implementing PPM organizationally isn’t about defining the structure you need. Effective PPM is about making it work in the structure that you already have. The focus of PPM is about the envisioning, evaluating and delivery of effective value. Value gets delivered at the front-line of the organization, and that is where PPM needs to best play a role.

    Too many PPM implementations assume that PPM is focused on only one part of the organization, or on one type of projects. Worse, there is often a presumption that to implement PPM requires organizational restructuring and the creation of new organizations, roles and processes.

    The most effective organizations leverage PPM to enable making and delivering on their strategic priorities. Success is not about structuring the organization in order to adopt PPM, it’s PPM serving the needs of the organization. In this presentation, Mark Mullaly highlights the strategies, approaches and principles necessary to bring your strategy to life and ensure it delivers value. He defines what it takes to realize success in the organization that you have today. You’ll get practical, pragmatic insight about harnessing PPM as an approach that serves your requirements, not one that drives your processes.

  • User provisioning is one of those tasks that many administrators detest. Not only does it take a significant amount of time to setup a new user, but it also takes time to assign all the permissions a user needs, especially when multiple applications need to be configured as well. Once that’s all setup, then you have to email out confirmations, deal with exceptions, and hope that you’ve crossed every t and dotted all of your i’s.

    In this webinar, you will learn:

    *How to avoid the common pitfalls of user provisioning.
    *How to optimize your user provisioning process.
    *How to work with error and exception handling.
    *How to automate common tasks and reduce number of emails sent.
  • You have seen the value of PPM. You understand its promise, and you embrace its principles. You endeavor to deliver the best possible value to your customers, and PPM is an essential tool to help you do that.

    Yet if PPM is only being used within IT, it is only living up to a fraction of its potential. While PPM has helped IT organizations get control of their resources and priorities, it is often seen to be focused on solving IT’s problems, not the organization’s. It doesn’t have to be that way. But making the case for PPM means you need to demonstrate what it can do for the organization as a whole, not just what it does for you.

    In this webinar, Mark Mullaly guides you through making the case for PPM as a tool for the whole organization. If you are an IT executive that values PPM but struggles to communicate that value to the rest of the organization, this is the presentation for you. In it we’ll guide you through building the case for change in adopting PPM organizationally. You’ll explore how to present PPM as a tool for collaboration and cooperation, not just command and control.

  • To be successful in the application economy, business and technology leaders require resource management insights across a number of programs, services, applications and projects. Unfortunately, these types of resource management insights are typically found across a fragmented, siloed set of execution teams, applications and desktop tools, making resource allocation decision-making difficult and slow. Fundamentally, organizations are hindered by a disconnect between their people, processes and tools.

    Join us for a webcast focusing on the critical relationship between Project Portfolio Management (PPM) and resource management in support of project and program execution. We’ll discuss how project and program managers use tactical resource management across their teams regardless of delivery method (agile, hybrid, traditional) to enable optimal value and faster execution.

  • Data environments are growing exponentially. Not only is there more data, but there are more data sources. At the same time, the value of unlocking that data and using it to make business decisions is also increasing.

    For the business user, understanding this complex data and unlocking its potential is the key to staying ahead of the competition.

    For IT organizations, complex data can be the bane of many business analytics programs, causing all kinds of trouble in data management and hindering system performance.

    Size of data and number of disparate data sources are two key drivers of complexity. The bigger the data, the more effort needed to query and store it. The more data sources (data tables) the more effort that is needed to prepare the data for analysis.

    The data complexity matrix describes data from both of these standpoints. Your data may be Simple, Diversified, Big, or Complex. When considering a Business Analytics program, different approaches are better suited for each data state.
  • As data is getting bigger and bigger, the question remains, “How can we get value from it?”. With this shift comes a new set of challenges spanning people, technology and processes.
  • As companies grow and change in today’s dynamic business and technical environment the need to control and manage application(s) investment and usage is increasingly critical to an organization’s success. How to get this control and management becomes a pressing issue for many companies whether their applications are on site or cloud based.

    Using a tailored enterprise specific approach, EmpoweredAPM expands CA PPM to provide clients with deep insight into how their application portfolios are performing, including an application’s business capabilities, value, health, risks, inter-relationships/dependencies, supporting products, total cost of associated services, and other key information related to their current and future software applications.

    Please join us for a webinar on Wednesday, October 28th where EmpoweredAPM will demonstrate how enterprises can leverage CA PPM (Clarity) to provide effective application portfolio management through the integration of control and management.

    At the end of the Webinar, you will be able to answer the question: How can your business achieve control, management, and cost effectiveness or your suite of applications, now and in the future to reduce you total cost of services supported by SW Applications?

  • Project Portfolio Management is often seen—and sold—as a tool for IT. PPM is embraced by IT as a way of gaining control of their world to focus on managing scarce resources and making or prioritizing decisions. Guess what, IT isn't the only team with scare resources, making bad decisions and no priorities. If a company is only using PPM for IT they are missing the real value. Managing all types of business strategies through projects is a must for every business, and successful customers have realized the real value of PPM to make better choices, balance opportunities and meet goals.

    In this webinar, Mark Mullaly examines how the role of PPM can be expanding and why PPM isn’t a tool for just one part of the organization; it is a way of thinking and working that can benefit everyone.

  • Every company needs to be a technology company to survive in the application economy. Business and customer expectations are immediate and changing on a daily basis. This continuous and disruptive flow of new demand requires an effective approach for managing and consuming centralized resource management insights. Organizations have improved their investment review and approval process but it is more important to determine if an organization “can” take on the desired effort.

    This Webcast will focus on how resource management processes play a key role in potentially providing the insights necessary to answer the “can we” question that must be asked before allowing any new project or program for inclusion in the enterprise portfolio.

    •Do we have the resource capacity?
    •Do we have the resource capability?
    •Can we supplement our existing resources with 3rd-party resources?
    •What are the resource cost comparisons and ramifications?
  • With cloud computing now becoming a mainstream technology for most companies, new opportunities have emerged for cloud and hosting providers that extend beyond their traditional infrastructure-focused businesses. The most interesting changes in cloud infrastructure, applications and services are yet to come.

    A key characteristic of Cloud 2.0 is that 70% of the opportunity is beyond infrastructure hosting, with application, managed and security services demand growing from enterprises. To capture this providers must continue to evolve their offerings to meet the increasingly complex demands of customers who are now in the driver's seat. These customers need not only infrastructure, but also wrap-around services and support that they have come to expect from their corporate IT departments.

    During this data-driven discussion you will learn:

    - What Cloud 2.0 means for your business
    - Cloud adoption trends
    - How to innovate without risk
    - Who are the primary decision makers
    - How customers choose a service provider and what requirements are important to them
    - Where customers allocate their budgets
