CA Clarity PPM Deployment to Enable Lufthansa Cargo AG to Adapt to the Dynamic Business Environment Faster
CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced that Lufthansa Cargo AG, one of the largest air freight carriers in the world, is implementing CA Clarity™ Project and Portfolio Management (PPM).
With 4,500 people employed, delivering more than 1.8 million tons of freight and mail to 300 destinations globally, Lufthansa Cargo AG depends on smooth workflows and logistics, not only in the area of transportation, but equally with regard to project management.
In order to meet these challenges, Lufthansa Cargo AG needed a holistic project and portfolio management (PPM) application that would unify and consolidate all project information in one place. The solution also needed to provide resource management so that Lufthansa Cargo AG could balance capacity with demand, financial management to capture costs and all project transactions, and portfolio management to ensure that strategic investments are aligned to corporate goals.
After an in depth evaluation process, it became clear that Lufthansa Cargo AG required all of these functionalities to be present in a single solution to provide consistent access to all of the data essential for informed decision making.
"CA Clarity PPM was chosen over other providers particularly on the strength of its plenitude of functionality, its high-quality configuration options, and its flexibility," commented Wolfram Martin, Head of Controlling Cross Functions Lufthansa Cargo AG.
CA Clarity PPM will replace a number of heterogeneous applications at Lufthansa Cargo AG. With the implementation of CA Clarity PPM, it will enable Lufthansa Cargo AG to record everything in a single system, eliminating the need for application integration and speeding up the entire process significantly.
