Clarity PPM FAQs
Simply put, Yes. The tool has been rebranded a few times in the past few years from Clarity PPM to CA Clarity and but we are pleased to see the Clarity brand naming return with the tool now simply being referred to as Clarity. You may still see some content referencing historic naming but rest assured it is all referring to the same product.
PPM tools like Clarity from Broadcom are not just designed for the multi-million dollar large enterprise. We also have many small & medium sized customers benefiting from the “Single Source of Truth” Clarity can provide. As the product is licensed by the user, customers can start small (our starter package allows up to 50 users) and grow with the tool knowing the value really does outweigh the initial investment due to its scalability and configurability. Get in touch to see if your business is the right fit for a tool like Clarity.
The pricing model for Clarity is very simple and is done entirely based on user license count. It is not gated by module used or number of projects stored in the system. A license grants access to all of the functionality within Clarity that you choose to show your users based on their role and organisation maturity. This allows you to create a roadmap to release new functionality at the right time, without incurring additional licence cost.
There are 3 licence types available with Clarity:
- Full – Full use of the functionality and any enabled modules – Examples would be PM/RM/PMO roles.
- Restricted – Functionality is limited such as Team Members or Executive access.
- Read Only – View Information only – Examples would be Exec or Third Party access.
