CA and Deloitte have announced a strategic partnership whereby Deloittes will adopt CA’s Clarity project and portfolio technology as its offering of choice and CA will utilise Deloitte consulting.

“Implementing a PPM solution offers massive value in terms of ensuring that projects are aligned to key business drivers, projects will be delivered on time and within budget and that organisations are compliant with good governance practices,“ says Gary Lawrence, MD of CA Africa.“We believe that this partnership with Deloitte offers our customers the opportunity to gain maximum value from PPM.“
The alliance includes both Deloitte Consulting and Deloitte & Touché Enterprise Risk Services practice, which provides business governance solutions to clients across all major vertical sectors.  These solutions combine CA’s technology with Deloitte’s approaches to IT governance, project management offices, risk and control optimisation, as well as innovation programmes.
“We will be using a risk-based governance approach to identify organisational requirements and align the technology solution to support those requirements,” says John Karageorgiou at Deloitte.  “Our goal is to enable businesses to get the most out of their technology solutions without having to increase their IT spend."
Lawrence adds: “The most important benefit of this partnership for customers is that it will provide solutions that have a positive impact on the bottom line, encourage growth in the business and solutions that are aligned with the customer’s business strategy and goals.
“IT is no longer a stand alone tool, it is a crucial driver of the overall business and therefore it needs to be supported by consulting services in order to obtain maximum value,” he adds.
