CA Technologies and VersionOne Partner on Integrated PPM and Agile Project Management

Solution integration gives technology leaders visibility across all development initiatives, enabling improved business-level decision making

NEW YORK and ATLANTA – October 9, 2014 – CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) and VersionOne today unveiled a PPM (Project & Portfolio Management) and Agile project management solution integration that gives technology leaders the insight to strategically plan, manage and track both Agile and waterfall project portfolios from concept to completion in a single console – making it easier to scale enterprise agility in lock step with traditional development and align with business objectives.

Available today, native integration between the latest release of CA PPM (formerly CA Clarity™ PPM) and the VersionOne® Agile project management solution helps software organizations extend upstream visibility of Agile projects, presenting them as prioritized strategic investments into their overall portfolio planning, funding and resource management process. 

“In the Application Economy, it’s more critical than ever for IT organizations to have a consistent handle on their entire IT investment portfolio,” said Yash Shah, senior vice president, Product Management, IT Business Management, CA Technologies. “We’re pleased to be working together with VersionOne to deliver on that key requirement – giving customers a truly comprehensive view on their portfolio stance, as well as the management capabilities and insight required to ensure IT initiatives stay true to business goals.”

Portfolio leaders can now leverage CA PPM’s top-down portfolio scenario planning, financial management and resource management capabilities with VersionOne’s high-level feature planning, project definition and work item management capabilities. Project plans in CA PPM automatically cascade to VersionOne, and project details, including tracking of effort, flow from VersionOne to CA PPM.

The solution plugs Agile PMOs directly into the enterprise strategies, objectives and financial side of the business – effectively synchronizing planning with funding and execution. By having a complete picture of PPM, businesses can make better investment priority and resource management decisions while accelerating project time-to-market, regardless of development methodologies being used.

Unlike competing third-party integrations that attempt to address the gap between traditional PPM and Agile project management solutions, this is an integrated solution natively built into a PPM application suite to take advantage of and enable visibility into areas within an organization leveraging agile methods and practices. 

“CA’s tight partnership with VersionOne aligns the best of both worlds in project and portfolio management – a Fortune 500 leader in PPM with a leader and recognized visionary in the rapidly emerging Agile ALM market,” said VersionOne CEO Robert Holler. “We look forward to working with CA to continue to extend our capabilities and ensure a seamless customer journey towards business agility at scale.”

CA PPM is the market-leading PPM solution, enabling organizations to optimally align strategic technology investments with business goals. In addition to integration with VersionOne, the new CA PPM 14.1 release - also unveiled today - includes improvements to CA PPM’s Microsoft Project integration and content deployment.

VersionOne integration is also available for CA PPM SaaS, a key component of the CA Management Cloud portfolio of modern, easy-to-use IT management solutions delivered from the cloud.

CA PPM and VersionOne will be featured at CA World ’14, Nov. 9-12 in Las Vegas. In addition, CA and VersionOne will present via CA’s BrightTalk PPM Insights educational webcasts and VersionOne’s AgileLIVE webinar series.
