CA Technologies (CA) has been positioned by Gartner, Inc., in the Leaders Quadrant of the 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Agile Planning Tools.* The report evaluated CA Agile Central, an enterprise-class platform purpose-built for scaling agile development practices. CA Technologies was positioned the furthest in the Leaders quadrant for Completeness of Vision.
According to the report, “Leaders in this market have shown a combination of strong vision either in leading agile thought or the combination of agile with developer collaboration and DevOps. Leaders have broad market reach and adoption, as shown in client inquiries and survey data as well as their corresponding growth and marketing presence. Vendors in this category are safe bets for large-scale adoption and we expect them to have a continued solid market presence. Leaders tend to have established marketplaces that provide them with extended functionality via partners. All have strong integration capability. They have strong networks for training and implementation, and can operate well globally.” Additionally, regarding evaluation criteria for completeness of vision, the report says, “Our key criteria are market understanding and product strategy.”
“As companies continue to compound the benefits of agile by scaling across their organizations, it’s critical that they consider not only their tools, but the processes and expertise that is needed to help them drive success,” said Angela Tucci, general manager, CA Agile Management. “CA’s combination of best-in-class solutions paired with some of the most experienced consultants in the industry means that our customers are truly equipped to take their agile transformations to new heights. We believe this recognition from Gartner validates our strategy of partnering with our customers to set them apart from their competition by enabling them to reduce time-to-market and deliver value faster for their customers.”

When CA Technologies acquired Niku and its flagship product Clarity back in 2005, Clarity quickly became the most recognized brand in CA’s extensive application portfolio. When CA later rebranded the application as CA Project & Portfolio Management, the industry was left scratching its collective head. The name “Clarity” remained popular, and never entirely dropped from the community vernacular. In November 2018, Broadcom completed its acquisition of CA Technologies, and immediately declared that most of their well-known products would be returned to their original names. And now it is official – CA PPM has been rebranded to Clarity PPM.
As a leading technology product company, Broadcom will focus on selling hardware and software while deemphasizing the provision of services. Instead, they will rely on partners to provide services to their customers. WinMill Software is the leading provider of Clarity consulting services in North America, and we are uniquely qualified to leverage this shift.
