According the report, CA Technologies offers “robust analytics at transactional and strategic levels.”  The report also notes that CA Clarity™ Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) offers customers “a wide range of deployment options, which allows them to either start quickly via software-as-a-service (SaaS) or proceed on a traditional on-premises route that supports a number of configurations.”

Forrester says CA Technologies “adaptable integration strategy permits companies to bring in critical data from third-party applications such as ALM and service portfolio management to analyze performance and health to determine a portfolio alignment. Recent investments in reporting and application portfolio management enable CA to provide greater transparency and insight into BT planning strategies.”

The report further states that the ability of CA Clarity PPM “to leverage both traditional and Agile approaches allows users to manage a wide variety of projects and work activities. Adaptable ideation, demand management, and resource planning give organizations flexibility to manage in multiple approaches. Agile organizations, or those transitioning to Agile, have the ability to collaboratively plan and execute projects regardless of approach.”

Forrester evaluated vendor solutions against 68 criteria. To qualify for inclusion in the report, vendors had to meet the following conditions:
• A formal product dedicated to IT and business-driven PPM.
• An active client base of more than 100 current paying customers.
• More than 60 percent of its revenue coming from IT PPM.

“Organizations can greatly benefit from flexible solutions that manage investments, projects and resources and connect them to IT and business goals,” said Lokesh Jindal, general manager, Service and Portfolio Management solutions, CA Technologies. “Forrester’s recognition of our leadership is, in our opinion, a direct reflection of our success in providing customers with precisely this kind of solution.”

DSV, one of the largest freight forwarding companies in the world, is using CA Clarity PPM On Demand to track the time, costs and tasks for day-to-day departmental activities across their entire project portfolio.
