What does the Kintana Suite do?
Where can I get basic information on PPM?
If you are trying to locate information and resources on the Kintana - IT Governance - Project and Portfolio Management product line your options are either the official Hewlett Packard site, Google(tm) searches, or, ahem, this site.
Locating PPM Information on the Hewlett Packard web site
A universal comment I get is the difficulty of locating information on the Hewlett Packard site. This continues the Mercury tradition of placing what useful content there is, not on web pages, but in pdf files.
The official starting point is the Demand and Portfolio Management page.
This is a very shy page. It has two condensed links to '[+] White Papers' and '[+] HP Project and Portfolio Management Center links'. You'll have to click the second link to expand it before you'll finally get to expose the PPM module links.
Clicking those will get you to other pages, and from there you'll need to register with the download center.
Basically it's been made about as difficult as reasonably possible for you to discover anything about PPM.
Which is why I suggest you use the Overview. link above.
Googleing for PPM Information
Getting useful search results for the 'Mercury IT Governance' or 'HP Project and Portfolio Management PPM' brands is quite difficult because unlike the Kintana brand name these are not distinctive keywords. You're likely to get an awful lot of parts per million results.
Google does not seem to bring back hits on the pdf files on the HP site. Why i'm not sure as on other searches Google routinely bring back pdf files, but it does seem to be so.
