CA Technologies has announced new capabilities in its Agile Management portfolio that allow organizations to deliver value faster, from upfront planning to execution to customer support. Expanded capabilities include integrations between CA Project & Portfolio Management (CA PPM) and CA Agile Central (formerly Rally).
The integrated solution of CA PPM and CA Agile Central helps companies to effectively balance agility and governance by connecting the work of agile teams to the enterprise portfolio. New integrations between CA Agile Central and CA PPM allow the work development teams are undertaking in CA Agile Central to be visible to project managers in CA PPM, so resource allocations, funding, and progress of business deliverables are more transparent. Supporting an evolutionary approach to adopting agile, the integrated solution allows companies to continue using traditional methods, while growing agile adoption to deliver on portfolio investments faster—with higher quality and predictable business results.
New CA Agile Central Capabilities Align Development Teams with Business Value
Many agile teams face the same challenges — they have too much work in process, and not enough visibility into which work is the most important work. Allowing teams to better connect strategy to execution, CA Agile Central now offers enhanced capacity planning, team planning and release tracking.
Key features include:
* Enhanced capacity planning enables businesses and engineering leaders to match business priorities to available team capacity so they can balance work allocation during planning.
* Team planning gives visibility into the prioritized set of features that teams will build. By providing context and empowering teams to plan their work, users create reliable release plans together to deliver optimum value to stakeholders.
* Release tracking provides visuals in real time for executing the work and release tracking progress.
