The report evaluated CA Project and Portfolio Management (CA PPM), the first solution of its kind with a data warehouse that centralizes individual IT portfolios to give management the insight needed for integrated thinking, improved decision-making and faster execution.
Gartner evaluated IIPA vendors on two main criteria: an ability to execute and completeness of vision. According to the Gartner report, “Leading products aggressively strive to integrate the planned execution of change to the IT footprint in response to the needs of the business, using portfolio management as a foundation.”
These products can analyze the cost and progress of the IT response to the business and IT strategy, and deliver the right perspectives, analysis, and impact views required by CIOs, IT portfolio managers, and other business leaders.”
CA Technologies has been repeatedly recognized for its PPM solutions. In May 2015, the company was also placed in the Leaders quadrant of the “Magic Quadrant for IT Project and Portfolio Management Software Applications, Worldwide.”**
CA PPM is designed to tightly connect business strategy with development execution by unlocking key insights across all work initiatives. In November, CA unveiled a new release of CA PPM that integrates with CA Agile Central (formerly Rally Agile Application Lifecycle Management), enabling IT leaders to manage agile, unstructured projects and traditional projects from a central console, ensuring they keep pace with the speed and resource demands of the business. This unique approach transforms how organizations prioritize capital and strategic IT investments.
“CA PPM is the only solution of its kind to pair rich business intelligence and application portfolio management capabilities in a way that makes agility possible for any business,” said Rob Carruthers, senior director, IT Business Management, Asia Pacific & Japan, CA Technologies. “We believe our repeated placement in the Leaders quadrant underscores the exceptional power of CA PPM and what it can do to boost business performance.”
