CA Technologies Named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Agile Planning Tools for Second Consecutive Year

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

CA Technologies (CA) has been positioned by Gartner, Inc., in the Leaders quadrant of the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Agile Planning Tools.*

CA Technologies offers CA Agile Central, an enterprise-class platform purpose-built for scaling agile development practices for and across teams that includes Team Board, Capacity Planning and Release Tracking.

“To thrive as a modern software factory, today’s companies must focus on providing customer value faster than the competition. This requires a flexibility and responsiveness that only comes from a strong linkage between strategy, execution and delivery so that companies can deliver better products, faster while maintaining their ability to adapt to customer needs and market changes,” said Surya Panditi, SVP and general manager, CA Agile Management. “CA Agile Central pairs enterprise capabilities, for every team or across teams, with ease-of-use to empower users to quickly access the information most relevant to their day to day work and align with the organization’s broader strategy.”

According to the report, “Agile adoption has traditionally been driven primarily from the bottom up, and enterprise-class agile development is a natural evolution of project-level agile to support the needs of large-scale software management. Often, the needs of the agile teams themselves have differed from those of their management, which has led to the use of a mix of tools. Top-down strategic adoption of agile is now growing, driven by digital business initiatives that demand the quick delivery of solutions to new types of problems.”

Designed to support scaling from the bottom up or the top-down, CA Agile Central is a best-in-class agile software that enables stronger teams, drives better business results, and ignites greater innovation resulting in an adaptive enterprise nimble enough to thrive in today’s fast-paced market.
