What do you like best about this product?

Nothing. Literally nothing. This is so painful to use that you will start thinking quitting your job.
Clarity wont support local formats so you will have to guess what format input should you use and first try will always mess everything up and you have to start again.

What could be improved about this product?

Everything.
Just delete source and start from scratch. Talk with users about GUI and support other localizations. Make it simple to use!!

What was your main concern about buying this software?

If they wont redesign whole thing you wont want this software. This software makes you cry.

What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you seen?

I havent seen any benefits. Only more issues and problems and using this takes more time than entering data to excel and making graphs yourself.

How likely would you be to recommend this software to a friend or colleague?

What do you like best about this product?

There is nothing to like about it. Using this product is painful.

What could be improved about this product?

Everything. The web interface is awful. The integration with Open Workbench is awful. Open Workbench is awful.

Trying to use CA Clarity PPM is like cutting a sheet of lead with a pair of children\’s plastic scissors. The best way I\’ve found is to export to XML via OWB and then modify the tasks using a Python script.

In my 2.5 years working in this role, I used CA Clarity v12. It provided good organization of project artifacts with a functional interface for Reporting, Modifications, and Portfolio Management.
