ISLANDIA, N.Y., June 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CA Technologies (Nasdaq: CA) today announced that Gartner, Inc. has placed the company in the "Leaders" quadrant of its "Magic Quadrant for IT Project and Portfolio Management" report.* Gartner positioned CA Technologies based on its completeness of vision and ability to execute. A leading provider of Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) software, CA Technologies' best-in-class CA Clarity PPM solution, which Gartner evaluated for the report, improves visibility into key initiatives by aiding the prioritization of people, projects and programs through a portfolio view, optimizing resources and driving enterprise efficiency.
According to the Gartner report, "IT PPM vendors in the Leaders quadrant meet IT needs by supporting analytic frameworks for application and project portfolios, and can track other types of IT demand, such as minor software change requests, so managers can assess the cumulative impact on resource supply. Product depth in several core PPM areas, such as demand management and analysis, advanced scheduling, and resource and cost management, sets Leaders apart from competitors, as well as portfolio analysis (for investment prioritization). Leaders are increasingly offering a measure of program (versus project) management, but vendors in other parts of the Magic Quadrant sometimes have more experience and product depth in this area."
"Based on the evolving needs of our customers and the marketplace, we've made significant investments in our CA Clarity PPM and Agile Vision products, and are pleased they were positively evaluated," said Brian Bell, senior vice president and general manager of the PPM business unit at CA Technologies. "As a named leader in the PPM Magic Quadrant, we welcome the recognition of our ongoing focus and investment in this key area of our portfolio. Our customers rely on Clarity and we'll continue to ensure we deliver a solution that is best-in-class."
