Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Portfolio Planning is a Process, Not a Task 1PMI PDU

A number of market forces are making the world a tougher place in which to be successful as a business. Globalization, consumerization of IT, competition from startups and the rise of new technologies are changing the rules. In order to remain competitive, you have to transform the way you craft your enterprise portfolio to meet the demands of the future, and make sure you don’t become a brand of the past. This webcast will focus on why it’s important to plan your portfolio constantly, making it a process that is constantly in motion rather than a once a year task. We will also review some of the foundational features of portfolios within the CA Clarity™ solution that most organizations can immediately utilize in their implementations including portfolio creation, portfolio evaluation, setting constraints, prioritization, waterlines, and load balancing as well as advanced features of portfolios that mature organizations can utilize in their implementations including advanced priorization rules that govern constraint-based planning, and generating and comparing scenarios. We will also review how these features can be used to manage non-project based investments like applications, assets, and services so you can better meet the demands of the changing marketplace.

*All attendees will be eligible for 1 PMI PDU

  • Simplify Application Modernization with Portfolio Management Recorded: May 17 2016 52 mins
    Dave Guevara, Global Enterprise Strategy & Architecture Portfolio Solutions Leader, Ciber
    Today, business is fast-paced with more moving parts than ever before. Companies that adapt their systems quickly in responding to business needs have a distinct competitive advantage. But organizations that are saddled with legacy systems not only struggle to keep up, but they’re also likely to find themselves on the fringe of relevance. Learn how to extend CA PPM to solve these complex modernization challenges.

    Which of these modernization challenges are you dealing with now?

    •Modernization initiatives exist for our major systems, but we need “the plan” for what else must change too.

    •Our systems are highly customized so we are “stuck”! How do we get unstuck without disrupting the business and get to our target state?

    •There are a few hundred applications, many are too expensive to maintain and take too long to change, but how?

    •Groups of large applications (e.g. mainframe, ERP, custom suites) need to be modernized to meet current business needs, but big bang will take too long, cost too much and “temporary” business solutions will just keep adding to today’s complexity and cost.

    •Our best talent, who should be innovating, are stuck maintaining what we have and fixing it as best they can to meet business needs.

    Join us for a BrightTalk webinar on Tuesday, May 17th at 10am PT where CA’s alliance partner Ciber will discuss how organizations are using portfolio management methods to solve these difficult and complex application modernization and rationalization challenges.

  • Take Agile to the Next Level with Forrester and CA - 1 PDU Recorded: May 9 2016 55 mins
    Diego Lo Giudice, Vice President Principal Analyst Serving Application Development & Delivery Professionals, Forrester
    The Q2 2015 Global Agile Software Application Development Online Survey from Forrester Research, Inc. shows that a third of firms have been practicing agile for more than five years, and 54% have successfully scaled their Agile practices to more than half their teams.*

    Yet practicing agile, by itself, isn’t guaranteed to deliver business value. Many companies with experienced agile teams still aren’t seeing the results they’d hoped for. Are your agile practices improving or flatlining? What good are productivity and velocity if they’re not enhancing your bottom line?

    As the speed of business accelerates and more competitors adopt agile, grassroots approaches just won’t cut it anymore. That’s why you should join our webinar on April 14 , at 10:00 AM (UK time/11am (CET) with CA Technologies Transformation Consultant or CA Agile Central, Andy Sales, and guest presenter Diego Lo Giudice, Forrester Analyst in Application Development + Delivery. You’ll learn how to apply the best practices found by both Forrester’s survey and CA Agile Transformation Consulting to give you a competitive edge and deliver business results.

    •Find out why it’s essential to connect delivery to your portfolio (upstream) and your operations (downstream) with cross-functional teams

    •Learn how to focus on cultural change to drive sustainable behavioral change

    •Get your company practicing continuous improvement with measurements that drive results

  • Total Application Life Cycle Management Recorded: Apr 20 2016 50 mins
    Rick Morris, President, R2 Consulting
    In the application economy, every team needs different information in order to be effective:

    •Executives need high level portfolios / programs to be able to prioritize work to keep up with the competitive demand
    •Project Managers need project schedules, effort estimates, time tracking , and issues & risks to accurately manage project health and update status
    •Resource Managers need to balance effort estimates from support and project work to effectively see expectations of their resources
    •Developers need to break down project work, support, enhancement, and bugs to smaller segments in order to run in an agile, waterfall, or hybrid model.

    However, often there is no one software tool that all segments can agree on. Total Application Life Cycle Management is a solution from R2 consulting designed to allow organizations to leverage the investments that they have made in existing toolsets and allows users to stay in the systems most suitable for their responsibilities, yet provide leadership with integrated visibility into all activities related to the organization's portfolio of applications, including the ability to see:

    •ALL bug fixes and enhancements plus supporting information
    •Demand and resource management aligned with projects and project information
    •All compliance data include application version, contract details, and license information

  • Better Project Process Means Better Project Performance - 1 PDU Recorded: Apr 7 2016 46 mins
    Steve Romero, Founder of Romero Consulting
    Project Teams rely on countless processes, and project teams find themselves on both sides of the process fence. Not only do they rely on project management processes to achieve their objectives, they also rely on countless enterprise processes.

Though processes are ubiquitous in every company today, they are frequently looked on negatively or even avoided. In this session Steve Romero will discuss the factors that potentially make processes a hindrance, the means and approaches to make processes practical and enabling, and how great processes and process management can empower project teams.

  • Shorten your investment funding cycles with PPM and SAFe - 1 PDU Recorded: Apr 7 2016 45 mins
    Richard Knaster, SAFe Principal Consultant
    Unconstrained customer requirements combined with technology disrupters in the cloud, big data, analytics, social and mobile is the new norm for businesses in the App Economy. With rapidly changing technologies fostered by transformation and competitive threats, product and application lifecycles are shortened creating the need for changes in how development work is funded and executed on. To shorten these life cycles, the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe)® describes the transformational patterns -from project based funding and control to Lean-Agile budgeting and self-managing Agile Release Trains.
    Richard Knaster, SAFe Principal Consultant, will examine how established strategic themes guide the enterprise investments and strategy for the relevant Agile and traditional waterfall programs. Richard will highlight the need to fund and monitor value streams and teams as organizations move away from top down budgeting to Lean-Agile budgeting. The key take ways for this session are:

    •Value streams not projects should be identified, fostered, funded, monitored and continuously improved
    •PPM needs to fulfill the investment funding responsibilities for both Agile and traditional waterfall programs during this period of transformation
    •Value stream insights utilizing KPIs are required from a portfolio and life-cycle context

  • Capturing the Value of Project Management Through Organizational Agility - 1 PDU Recorded: Apr 7 2016 45 mins
    Tricia Cabrey, Market Researcher, PMI
    Organizational agility requires a supportive culture and a shift in how work is viewed and approached. Our findings focus on the value placed on the cultural elements of high organizational agility. A highly developed culture of agility exists when value is placed on ideals and behaviors such as collaboration, diversity, communication, creativity, transparency, and inquisitive thinking. Organizations that establish the following framework are better positioned to enable agility:

    •Supportive Culture: Identifying the value of openness, transparency, respect, knowledge, improvement, and adaptation
    •Strategic Flexibility: Capturing opportunities and responding quickly to varying demands
    •Collective Leadership: Sharing a common view of strategy
    •Capable People: Applying the right talent management resources
    •Adaptive Process: Assessing and establishing new means to respond to change

  • Agile Capitalization for Greater Business Value - 1PDU Recorded: Apr 7 2016 45 mins
    Pat Reed, Agile Alliance Director and Catherine Connor, Portfolio Agility Solutions Specialist at CA
    With disruptive technology advances, software assets play an increasingly important role in creating a competitive advantage. It’s time for organizations to recognize and manage business software as a strategic corporate asset. To keep up with the speed of business, companies turn to agile practices to deliver better customer value faster. Challenge: agile software development is too often misunderstood and misreported, impacting taxation, higher volatility in Profit and Loss (P&L) statements, and dramatic, unnecessary staff cuts in an economy where talent retention is paramount to foster innovation. To avoid those negative implications, companies can evolve their financial reporting practices to leverage the financial advantage of agile so they can benefit from the significantly increased tax savings and investor interest associated with agile capitalization. This session will unravel the benefits of agile capitalization and explain how to appropriately interpret and apply generally accepted accounting standard (GAAP SOP 98-1 and ASC 350-40) so your organization can increase its agile adoption to deliver more business value faster to customers.
