Why integrate Clarity PPM with Kovair?

Collaboration – Organisation needs more transparency than ever before. The project management team needs more collaboration with other life cycle teams like development. For example, the program manager may define high-level goals for a project and these goals need to be further translated into detail level requirements for the development team who uses a different set of tools. This integration reduces the collaboration barriers between product management and development teams thus reduces delay.
The integration allows synchronization of artifacts across the other lifecycle tools. It facilitates project-level information to flow between Clarity PPM and other connected tools. Kovair platform includes workflow which enables tools to connect disparate functions and route requests to groups.
