Gartner names CA Technologies Leader in Project Portfolio Management

22 Jun 2018

CA Technologies has been positioned by Gartner in the Leaders quadrant of the “Magic Quadrant for Project Portfolio Management, Worldwide” for the second consecutive year.

The report evaluated CA Technologies for its ability to execute and completeness of vision; CA Project & Portfolio Management (CA PPM) was part of the company’s assessment.

“Digital transformation is driving businesses to continuously look for new ways to bring innovation to market, says  CA Technologies Asia Pacific and Japan agile management vice president Chris Wilson

“This means working faster, acting smarter and staying attuned to customer needs – and it is how innovation is planned, how investment decisions are made, and how quickly innovation is turned into customer value is what separates the winners from the rest.

“With CA PPM’s unique strategic roadmap planning capabilities, we empower today’s businesses to stay ahead of the competition by driving innovation and capitalising on new market opportunities. We are delighted to see the continued placement of CA Technologies as a Leader in this Magic Quadrant.”

The new release of CA PPM offers enterprise investment road-mapping capabilities, designed to support the iterative and collaborative planning practices of today’s modern enterprises.

The top-down planning capabilities provide business leaders better alignment between business goals and investments, allowing them to create and adapt their investment strategy without sacrificing deep and reliable visibility into the performance of their initiatives across the portfolio.

In April, the company joined 33 others that vowed to provide all customers across the globe from malicious cyber attacks from criminals and nation states.

The companies pledged commitments in four separate areas: stronger defence, no offence, capacity building, and collective action.

This news was followed up this month with the announcement of a new APJ security vice president, Gene Ng.

“Cybersecurity threats are effectively omnipresent in today’s digital landscape, and enterprises need to embed security in the DNA of their software development to drive better business outcomes,” Ng said at the time.

“I am excited to be joining CA Technologies, and I look forward to further strengthening CA’s security leadership in the market and helping organisations deliver secure and seamless customer experiences.”
