From their booth at Agile 2013, the CA Technologies team presented lesser-known tools that are a part of the company's larger vision for project and portfolio management (PPM). David Werner, senior solutions marketing manager at CA, said that many of the folks who stopped by the booth were already CA customers familiar with Clarity, CA's PPM suite.
What those folks weren't necessarily familiar with were the associated tools, like Clarity Playbook, that might help Agile teams draw in feedback from the business side more frequently and earlier in the process. Werner said these tools let business executives make more informed decisions and change direction in a more Agile way. "That's our whole play," said Werner, "is to help the entire business to be Agile."
