CA Clarity PPM Enterprise Change Management

Disconnected change processes are an unfortunate reality for most IT organizations, as there is no true linkage between all of the systems used to manage change. Change is managed today in silos of automation that are optimized for the people and processes they support but disconnected from one another. These separate domains, multiple methods and disconnected automation tools limit visibility, reduce control over the process and introduce a greater potential for errors, resulting in a set of processes that are managed in disparate systems that create silos of change automation. Although locally optimized, there is no global visibility to the cost of change.
