itd Phoenix UI

Classic and Modern Interface United in CA PPM

With the introduction of the Modern UX for CA PPM, the usability of the project portfolio management software has changed fundamentally. The new look and feel makes CA PPM more efficient, intuitive and user-friendly. Still, the availability of modules in the Modern UX is limited, which results in unavoidable switching between interfaces for CA PPM users.

With the itd Phoenix UI, at itdesign we have developed a new UI for CA PPM, which unites the Modern and the Classic interface and therefore provides a seamless User Experience. All CA PPM features and functionalities of the Classic UI remain available, including all other itd Add-ons.

itd Jira Integration

Overview of Agile Projects in Jira and CA PPM

Jira is software frequently used for the operative planning of agile and hybrid projects. However, if these projects are no longer maintained in CA PPM, your data quality will diminish, and it will be difficult to optimally allocate resources and funds to the projects. The result is a deteriorated basis for decision-making and duplicate work.

With itd Jira Integration, you can create an overview of your Jira-planned projects and work packages in both tools. By automatically transferring created projects, activities, and time tracking between applications, they become visible in CA PPM. You avoid duplicating your work, and at the same time, you minimize the risk of errors. In addition, both tools retain their legitimacy and even increase their efficiency.

Features

  • Automatic transfer of work packages from Jira to CA PPM
  • Automatic transfer of time tracked from Jira to CA PPM
  • Possibility of automatic aggregation of Jira activities as part of the transfer

Additional Benefits

  • Easy configuration
  • Custom adaptability of the matching of the elements to be linked
  • Fast support

itd Gantt Print

Quick Print of Gantt Charts Directly from CA PPM

Whether it‘s internal project work, working with suppliers or working with customers – as a project manager, you need to be able to share your project plan with others.

itd Excel Exchange

Bidirectional Data Exchange between CA PPM and Microsoft Excel

Many users appreciate the functionality of Microsoft Excel for processing and analyzing large amounts of data. Although CA PPM provides an Excel export for reports and portlets, in the standard version it is not possible to export data, modify it and import it back to CA PPM.

With itd Excel Exchange you can quickly and easily exchange large amounts of data between CA PPM and Microsoft Excel. As a user, you can easily export data from CA PPM, modify it in Microsoft Excel, and then import it back to CA PPM.

itd Document Drive

Quick Editing of Documents in CA PPM

When trying to edit documents in CA PPM, you quickly hit the technical limits of the system. To edit, documents must first be downloaded, saved locally and then uploaded back to CA PPM. Since those are stored in different places in the tool, it also takes time to locate them.

With itd Document Drive, you can edit your documents from CA PPM in a flash. The navigation of your Windows Explorer gives you an overview of all the documents stored in the tool, which you can open and edit directly. Your edited version will then be automatically saved in CA PPM without overwriting the original document. This makes time-consuming local caching as well as manual uploads and downloads obsolete.

Features

  • Access to CA PPM Document Management System (DMS) via a local directory
  • Supports any existing WebDAV client
  • Full integration with the standard CA PPM DMS functionality: Display of folder structures and files as well as file and folder operations

Additional Benefits

  • CA PPM-coupled authentication
  • Supports the CA PPM rights model
  • SSL support

itd Single Sign-on

Maximum Security for CA PPM

Through applications and tools, you get more and more support for your daily work. As a user you have to remember new login data for each application, which often leads to the use of insecure passwords. Keeping your corporate network secure while accessing individual applications each with their own user management is therefore an increasing challenge.

With itd Single Sign-on, you integrate CA PPM into your existing security and rights concept and anchor it throughout your company. This will give only authorized persons access to CA PPM without additional login, and working with your system will be safer, faster, and more convenient.

Features

  • Ability to log into CA PPM without additional registration
  • Centralized management of password policies, multi-factor authentication etc.
  • Centralized activation of new users and blocking of non-authorized users

itd Milestone Trend Analysis

Reliable Monitoring of Project Planning Accuracy in CA PPM

For the realistic planning of your projects in CA PPM, it is essential that you continuously monitor their progress. Without this control, you may not be able to detect delays in a timely manner. As a result, you cannot meet deadlines and will need to reschedule subprojects.

With itd Milestone Trend Analysis, you can reliably monitor planning accuracy in CA PPM. Using the graphically illustrated analysis, you can continuously monitor project progress and identify deviations right away. Ideally, the course is horizontal and even. Outliers up or down indicate an inaccuracy in planning. This gives you the opportunity to counteract with foresight and to derive the right measures.

Features

  • Milestone trend analysis to monitor project progress based on changes to project and baseline plan
  • Display in the CA PPM project dashboard
  • Ability to filter individual milestones at project level

itd MSP Export

Exact Project Plan Export from CA PPM to Microsoft Project

As a project manager, you must be able to share your project plan outside your organization, for example with Microsoft Project. However, compared to CA PPM, this application has a different approach to scheduling. Therefore, an unmodified 1:1 export of your project plan from CA PPM to Microsoft Project is not possible.

With itd MSP Export, you can transfer your project plan unchanged from CA PPM to Microsoft Project. One click is all it takes to export your project plan and share it with third parties. This saves you time-consuming overhead by manually reworking the exported project plan.

Features

  • Export project plans from CA PPM to MSP
  • Ability to exclude resource data

Additional Benefits

  • Easy installation in a few minutes
  • No installation or adjustment required by the user – you will get a standard .mpp file

itd Data Privacy

More Privacy and Transparency in CA PPM

Thanks to the new EU General Data Protection Regulation, at least special attention is being paid to the protection of personal data. Companies are responsible for the security and the correct handling of data. You must provide information to customers, partners, and employees about the processing of their data in CA PPM and be able to delete them if necessary.

With itd Data Privacy, you can protect the data in your company and create transparency about their use. Thanks to the uniform deletion concept, data can be automatically removed according to your individual specifications without manual intervention.

  • Transparent overview of the use of each stakeholder‘s data
  • Integrated Excel export of overview of each stakeholder‘s data

Extend your CA PPM with itdesign

We support you in extending your CA PPM system. We use state-of-the-art web technologies to adapt CA PPM to your individual requirements. One of itdesign’s strengths is the ability to develop add-ons for missing functions. But we are also happy to develop custom software solutions to improve your CA PPM system.

Solution products

Our catalog of add-ons and so-called solution products is constantly under development, with new CA PPM options being added all the time. We would be happy to meet with you in person to present our range of products and services.

Integration

CA PPM software usually replaces existing systems. Integrated document management, data mart, and report functions make the use of separate systems unnecessary and provide an attractive opportunity to consolidate systems. To ensure that existing data is not lost when changing systems, we program the required templates for the data migration. This helps ensure a smooth data import.

We also implement interfaces that establish a permanent data exchange between CA PPM and other systems. For example, this allows attendance times to be imported from the timekeeping system into CA PPM, where it can then be compared with project times. Another option is the transfer of data from CA PPM for reporting purposes or for further financial processing. We document each interface in detail and train your administrators in their use and maintenance. Our track record includes many successful SAP integrations in particular.
