CA Technologies Receives “Strong Positive” Rating in Gartner's IT Project and Portfolio Management MarketScope Report09:00 EDT Thursday, May 23, 2013
ISLANDIA, N.Y. (Business Wire) -- CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced that CA Clarity™ Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) has again received a “strong positive” rating – the highest possible given – in Gartner's “MarketScope for IT Project and Portfolio Management Software Applications” report.1
According to the Gartner report, “demand for IT PPM software deployed as dedicated instances, either on premises or cloud-hosted, persists, because many enterprises want full control of their IT PPM investments. This MarketScope analyzes IT PPM applications primarily deployed as dedicated instances, either on-site or offsite.”1
CA Clarity PPM, which can be deployed on-premises or in the cloud, supports both execution-level and project portfolio-level IT PPM. CA Technologies recently announced CA Clarity Playbook, an innovative mobile application that uniquely empowers CXOs to strategically manage their organization's technology investments in the context of their high-level business goals and objectives—right from their iPads.
“We believe Gartner's strong positive rating underscores the exceptional work we have done to understand and address the real-world challenges of our customers,” said Lokesh Jindal, general manager, IT Business Management solutions, CA Technologies. “We are committed to providing the tools that help IT organizations deliver maximum value and agility to the business while conserving resources and minimizing risk.”
The Gartner report 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 to complementary IT software systems, and a strong commitment to cloud hosting that required these providers to make significant internal changes to accommodate a new business model without disrupting current operations.”1
Tufts Health Plan, a nonprofit Massachusetts health insurer nationally recognized for its commitment to providing innovative, high-quality health care coverage, uses CA Clarity PPM to manage its portfolio of IT projects and capture all business case estimates.
"CA Clarity PPM has helped us improve Corporate Project Portfolio Management and better manage change across our entire project portfolio," said Steven MacPherson, senior manager, Program Management Office, Tufts Health Plan. "It has centralized our corporate project resource data which has contributed to our overall portfolio success and IT resource transparency to our business."
In addition to CA Technologies “strong positive” rating in the MarketScope report, the company is also positioned in the “Leaders” quadrant in Gartner's “Magic Quadrant for Integrated IT Portfolio Analysis Applications (IIPA)” report.2
