CA Agile Central helps your entire organization run like one powerful team.

Connect strategy with execution.

CA Agile Central shows you how strategy ties to execution and delivery—so you can make faster, smarter decisions. Use this agile software to align strategy and daily work, track and manage delivery in a predictable cadence and leverage key data to quickly and accurately measure performance.

Plan and prioritize to quickly deliver value.

With Project and Portfolio Hierarchy, you can have deep visibility into the work that your teams are doing and how it ties to your business strategy and customer value. Your people can be aligned with each other, their work and with strategic objectives. The result? You can build the right products, in the right way at exactly the right time.

Match delivery to company and customer expectations.

CA Agile Central provides visibility into how your teams are meeting business objectives. With Release Tracking and Metrics, you get a comprehensive roll-up of progress, dependencies, alignment and plan health—so teams and groups can maintain schedules, make intentional decisions and understand change.

Empower your teams.

The CA Agile Central Team Board gives your delivery teams and portfolio leaders a shared view to better plan, prioritize and track their work. This helps teams work more closely with each other (and other teams) to improve quality and speed delivery, no matter their methodology.

Enable continuous improvement.

Real-time performance metrics let you measure productivity, predictability, quality and responsiveness. And you can quickly adjust to continuously meet changing business goals.

CA Agile Central helps teams succeed in every role.

  • Product Owner

Product Owner

Product Owner: Product Visionary, Customer Advocate

As the product owner, you wear a lot of hats: product expert, backlog groomer, voice of the customer and more. You’re embedded in the agile team—interfacing between developers and customers, writing user stories, collaborating with testers on acceptance criteria and translating the product roadmap into a manageable product backlog. And you do all of this while putting the customer first, ensuring that customer value is at the heart of all decisions made by your agile team.

What Makes a Successful Product Owner

  • Enjoy working with developers and be physically located near your dev team.
  • Have a talent for engaging with users to discuss existing features.
  • Be comfortable with the unpredictability that comes with software development—understanding that roadblocks tend to occur at the least convenient times.
  • Be decisive and be able to make decisions based on limited data.

ScrumMaster

Sherpa for Success

The ScrumMaster is at the heart of the agile team—focused on the team itself and not the project. You continuously ensure your team stays on task and aligned with proper scrum workflows while providing guidance in best practices and motivation if things do not go as planned. And if your team experiences any roadblocks along the way, you—in all of your agile wisdom—help remove what’s in your team’s way to success.

Project Manager

Why Project Managers Can Survive and Thrive with Agile

It’s a common misperception that agile doesn’t need project managers, when in fact, there’s a lot of work to do. In traditional project management, you’re responsible for balancing scope, cost and schedule. In Agile Project Management, the whole team collaborates to meet these commitments. And your support equips the team to become fully engaged and motivated contributors who can produce high-quality work faster.
