- Integration with CA Clarity PPM to provide the first purpose-built agile planning solution integrated with a leading PPM solution (Enterprise Edition only)
- CA Clarity PPM supported versions: CA Clarity On Demand Spring 2010, CA Clarity 12.0.6, and CA Clarity 12.0.6 On Demand
CA Agile Vision has already generated excitement from prospects, customers, and analysts alike.
- 611 attendees previewed the product at CA World
- 13 independent analysts from Gartner, Forrester, IDC have previewed the product and have been blown away. According to IDC, "CA has the credibility to deliver enterprise agility."
With Gartner projecting that Agile development methods will be utilized in 80% of all software development projects by 2012, we now have a unique opportunity to capitalize on this. We are the only PPM vendor to offer an agile planning tool built from the ground up specifically for that purpose. We're not configuring PPM to do agile planning. We're delivering great, proven functionality that will integrate with the world's best PPM solution.
