NEW YORK, June 4, 2014 – CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) announced that it has again received a “Strong Positive” rating – the highest rating given – in Gartner’s “MarketScope for IT Project and Portfolio Management Software Applications” report.* It is the third consecutive year that CA Technologies received a “Strong Positive” – a rating given to only two vendors this year.
According to the Gartner report, “The pace of change continues to drive demand for projects and programs. This MarketScope analyzes IT PPM software vendors and their products, which are deployed as dedicated instances, either on-site or off-site, giving customers complete or near-complete control of their IT PPM software investment.”*
Deployed on-premise or in the cloud, CA PPM supports both execution-level and portfolio-level PPM with a next-generation user experience. It integrates with CA Clarity Playbook, an innovative mobile application that uniquely empowers CXOs to strategically manage technology investments in the context of business goals and objectives. “We are proud to receive this recognition once again, which we feel is a testament to the continuous innovation we have been driving in our PPM solution,” said Lokesh Jindal, general manager, IT Business Management, CA Technologies. “CA Clarity will continue to evolve to meet customers’ need for ensuring that their investments are focused on driving business growth and project execution by optimizing available resources for maximum benefit. Mobility, elegant user experience and out-of-the-box value is what our customers expect from us and is our core focus.”
The Gartner report also stated that, “Providers receiving a Strong Positive rating in this MarketScope demonstrate a strong global market presence, depth and breadth in IT PPM functionality, and integration with complementary IT software systems. They have a strong commitment to cloud hosting and made significant internal changes to accommodate a new business model without disrupting current operations.”*
