CA Technologies has announced new capabilities in its Agile Management portfolio that allow organisations to deliver value faster, from upfront planning to execution to customer support.
“In today’s application economy, the most successful companies differentiate themselves by sensing market opportunities and responding more quickly and confidently than the competition. Organisational agility of this order requires architecting the whole business system for speed, steering and opportunity – a 21st century operating system for getting things done,” says Andrea Lodolo, chief technology officer of CA Southern Africa.
“We’re seeing a strong shift in the cultural and organisational behaviours of companies as they strive to become more nimble and responsive to competitive market demands,” says Melinda Ballou, program director, Application Life-Cycle Management and Executive Strategies, IDC. “Adaptive, agile solutions – from business portfolio planning to application creation, deployment and service management – can deliver dynamic technology differentiators and the opportunity for customers to speed and optimise delivery for development and business operations.”
Expanded capabilities include integrations between CA Project & Portfolio Management (CA PPM) and CA Agile Central (formerly Rally), a new persona-based approaches to PPM and IT Service Management (ITSM) with CA PPM and CA Service Management, and new features in CA Agile Central. The benefits of this expanded Agile Management portfolio include:
* A combination of Agile development and enterprise portfolio management capabilities;

* New CA Agile central capabilities aligning development teams with business value; and
* New CA Service Management user experience driving faster response times.
