According to the report, “Most Leaders can demonstrate a strong market presence, combined with a higher-than-usual level of frequency in sales activity and execution. Leaders are growing the number of their installed bases, and their average number of end users per deal is steadily increasing year over year. Leaders can verify their longevity and stability as on-premises and cloud-hosted providers in the IT PPM market. They also demonstrate an evolving cloud strategy from a historical and well-established on premises business model. The results have been a stronger cloud-hosted architecture and the ability to push software release out to customers in an iterative or agile mode.”
Gartner evaluated 10 software vendors across 15 criteria in the report. CA Technologies was one of only two vendors placed in the Leaders quadrant.
“CA PPM makes it easy to draw business insights from multiple disciplines, driving integrated thinking and better decision making,” said James Harvey, general manager, IT Business Management, CA Technologies. “We live in an application economy where businesses are being transformed by software. CA PPM gives our customers a competitive edge, offering up key insights that enable their businesses to thrive in a rapidly evolving marketplace.”
CA PPM democratises key data with the first and only integrated Business Intelligence capability for PPM – synthesizing the project, product and financial insights organisations need to take action without sacrificing performance. Available via the cloud and on-premises, CA PPM improves IT project managers’ ability to prioritise strategic initiatives and resources.
CA Technologies is a recognized PPM solutions provider. In November 2014, the company was also placed in the Leaders quadrant of the “Magic Quadrant for Integrated IT Portfolio Analysis Applications”.**
