Functional Consulting PDF Print E-mail

CA Clarity is not an easy application to master; not because the application is difficult to learn but the integration requirements between business process best practices and system interaction is so important to the success of a Clarity deployment.  Many Clients are left with an expensive investment that isn't paying dividends precisely because the integration of the system and business processes isn't there.

Other Clients may be wary of taking on implementing Clarity because they don't understand the tool and how to leverage it.  Knowing how to deliver the requirements for an implementation is a core factor of the success or failure of the implementation project.

As a Clarity Functional Consultant, my role is to bring to your organization the expertise with the Clarity tool and knowledge of how customers have implemented this tool (for better or worse).  Having 18 years of Project Management experience also provides my Clients with a unique benefit of Project and Portfolio Management best practices and how to make those come to life in Clarity.

Clarity is an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system - like Oracle and Peoplesoft, you need an expert on your side.  Whether by serving as a Business Architect interfacing with CA Clarity Services in your implementation or Clarity or assisting your organization in transforming your projects groups around the tool, RPMC has the expertise and knowledge to save you time, money and headaches in your Clarity endeavors.

Technology Capability Assessments PDF Print E-mail

Project Mechanic provides services specifically designed to assess your organization and systems ability to take advantage of new technology deployments or refresh projects. In this economic climate, the efficient implementation of systems and the transition to operations isn’t a luxury – it is a necessity.

Projects to implement technology devices (hardware or software) are primarily dependent on the following elements to ensure success and the expected results from the deployment:

  • The legacy systems ability to take advantage of the new technology
  • The organizational processes ability to efficiently use the new technology
  • The resources capability to manage and operate the new technology
  • The leadership’s commitment to the new technology

Any of the above factors, when not properly accounted for, can derail or cause a project to fail. Worse than failure, they can provide the foundation to implement a system that impacts efficiency, cost savings and performance. All of these project pitfalls can be avoided or mitigated if they are known at the outset of the project.

In your Technology Capability Assessment, a Project Mechanic will provide a comprehensive look into the success factors for your technology deployment and provide a report card detailing the organizational readiness state. Action plans and project pre-work can be outputs from the assessment, in the case that the organization isn’t quite ready for deployment. These tactical and strategic direction shifts can even be factored into the deployment planning for your technology project
