Gartner’s Vendor Ratings assess all the different aspects of a technology provider, such as its strategy, organization, products, technology, marketing, financials and support. These ratings are periodically revised to reflect changes in assessment when a significant internal or external event directly affects the provider.
In this current Gartner evaluation of CA Technologies, the company received a “positive” rating. The evaluation was based on various criteria, such the company’s strategy, products/services, technology/methodology and financial structure.
In addition, the company earned a “positive” rating in the following categories: Identity and Access Management, Service and Portfolio Management and Service and Capacity Assurance. According to Gartner, a positive rating means that “potential customers should consider this provider a viable choice for strategic or tactical investments, while planning for known limitations.”
