Gartner recognises CA Technologies as Magic Quadrant leader

09 Feb 16

For the fourth year in a row, CA Technologies has been positioned as a leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Integrated IT Portfolio Analysis (IIPA) Applications.

In a new report, Gartner evaluated the vendor's CA Project and Portfolio Management (CA PPM), the first solution of its kind with a data warehouse that centralises individual IT portfolios to give management greater insight.

In the report, IIPA vendors were evaluated on two main criteria: an ability to execute and completeness of vision.

According to Gartner, “Leading products aggressively strive to integrate the planned execution of change to the IT footprint in response to the needs of the business, using portfolio management as a foundation.

"These products can analyse the cost and progress of the IT response to the business and IT strategy, and deliver the right perspectives, analysis, and impact views required by CIOs, IT portfolio managers, and other business leaders.”

CA Technologies has been recognised for its PPM solutions before. In May 2015, the company was also placed in the Leaders quadrant of the ‘Magic Quadrant for IT Project and Portfolio Management Software Applications, Worldwide’.

In November, CA unveiled a new release of CA PPM that integrates with CA Agile Central (formerly Rally Agile Application Lifecycle Management).

According to the company this enables IT leaders to manage agile, unstructured projects and traditional projects from a central console. This approach transforms how organisations prioritise capital and strategic IT investments, CA Technologies says.

“CA PPM is the only solution of its kind to pair rich business intelligence and application portfolio management capabilities in a way that makes agility possible for any business,” says Jeff Moloughney, CA Technologies senior director product marketing.

“We believe our repeated placement in the Leaders quadrant underscores the exceptional power of CA PPM and what it can do to boost business performance," he says.
