The need to speed innovation is a fundamental business reality today—but so is the need to contend with finite budgets and resources. Project and portfolio management (PPM) delivers the key capabilities organizations need to straddle these competing demands, but for many businesses, the time and money required to implement on-premises PPM platforms has kept these initiatives on the back burner. With CA Project & Portfolio Management SaaS (CA PPM SaaS) your organization can leverage a comprehensive, SaaS-based PPM solution. As a result, you can harness the capabilities you need to innovate more quickly and optimize your resource investments—without having to incur the time and effort of deploying and maintaining a PPM platform on premises.
