May 10, 2022
By: Doug Kalkowski
On Monday May 9, 2022 Broadcom made Clarity version 16.0.2 available to all SaaS and On-Premise customers.
Some of the new features available include:
Broadcom has introduced the ability to define “Smartlists” and associate these lists of To-Dos within investments. Users can also share checklists with other Clarity users for common use cases. Additionally, To-Dos can now be defined on Risks, Issues and Change Requests.
Enhancements to Visual Resource Staffing:
Broadcom continues to advance the functionality of the Visual Resource Staffing page introduced in 16.0.1. This module was enhanced to allow for inline edits within the Timeline grid & Details flyout. Users can also now indicate default allocation & start / finish dates when either adding or replacing a role or resource via drag-n-drop or reallocating a role or resource.
Top-down planning Improvements:
The Hierarchy module has been enhanced to allow users to edit investment details directly in the hierarchy grid view, eliminating the need to drill into individual items. Users can also leverage Time-Scaled Value attributes across projects, ideas and custom investments when defining hierarchy metrics. The ability to share saved views across different Hierarchy instances has also been introduced and more!
- Tool-tips can now be added at the attribute level, providing additional context for end users.
- Improved attribute grouping within column selector and filters.
- Improved user experience for discovering the Details flyout with the addition of a right-click action from within the Timeline, Board, and Grid views.
- The Task Duration field is now editable within the Task Timeline, Grid, and flyout views.
- The ‘document’ attribute has been enabled for Risk, Issues, and Change Requests
For a complete listing of all the enhancements included in this release, see Broadcom’s Release notes.

As a leading technology product company, Broadcom will focus on selling hardware and software while deemphasizing the provision of services. Instead, they will rely on partners to provide services to their customers. WinMill Software is the leading provider of Clarity consulting services in North America, and we are uniquely qualified to leverage this shift.
Today, the nature of work is changing. Users expect applications to be more social, team-oriented, and less complicated to use. Considering these market dynamics, the Clarity PPM team began developing an enhanced user experience (UX) for all users, including enterprise portfolio managers, mid-level project management professionals, and agile teams of all sizes.
Atlassian is ending support for their On-Premise version of JIRA, which many companies have been using to manage projects and incorporate Agile methodologies. What is the best replacement? We are recommending Rally from Broadcom, which is designed for the purpose and will enable you to scale.
