What is most valuable?

It allows me to do large team planning operations, where I can do "big room planning" and have all of my Agile teams in one session. We can get through all of our planning through the use of the software. With big room planning, we can get it... more»

How has it helped my organization?

It's optimized how our organization runs. We can look across multiple teams, using Scaled Agile Framework Methodology (SAFE), so that we can look at various release trains, and how that then flows up to the overall program budget. Each train... more»

What needs improvement?

The main area to improve is performance. If they can get that performance improved, they'd be golden. They really need more in the DevOps modeling, and the use of Kanban. Their Kanban area is fairly weak. That's probably the one area of the... more»

What is most valuable?

One of the features that I like is the discussion thread, that we can subscribe to, if at all, someone wants to discuss something. It has to be in that particular feature or the user story itself, rather than in an email. Thus, one can... more»

How has it helped my organization?

The velocity of work that we were doing prior to using CA Agile Central, was not quantitative, i.e., we were not able to quantify how many user story points we had delivered or how much work, we were doing. By using the CA Agile Central tool... more»

What needs improvement?

The product is really good and there is very little space, as to what needs to improve. The only thing that I can think of is to improve the section of the acceptance criteria, that is located far below the user story description. Sometimes,... more»

Safe Agilist Scrum Master at a comms service provider with 1,001-5,000 employees
Dec 19 2016

What is most valuable?

The ability to extract data to provide feature and release metrics for our executives and our customer stakeholders is very important. It provides reports on the cycle time from the time that feature requirements are initially defined to when... more»

How has it helped my organization?

* By using this extracted data, it provides a real picture, instead of a perceived picture, of the amount of work the team is doing, the time it's taking to get new changes out, ready to put into a user acceptance test area, and production,... more»

What needs improvement?

* I would like them to give me back the fields I used to have. We lost the release field because they mentored our scaled agile framework trainer to actually use the release field as what I would call a program increment. * We're releasing... more»

IT Business Systems Analyst at a manufacturing company with 10,001+ employees
May 10 2017

What is most valuable?

I guess the main thing is that it allows us to pull all of our user stories and manage our agile process together for our agile team. It enables us to document our epics and features and user stories all the way down to a fine level.

How has it helped my organization?

I work with our business units and they hand over a project to me. Then, I break it down and dissect it at the project level and break out all the features. Then, for each one of the features, I write all the user stories. Then, I coordinate... more»

What needs improvement?

I'd say that there are a few things to improve. On the main screen, I think it's called the Team Planning screen, it should be able to run a backlog. For example, if I have 300 stories in my backlog, it would be nice to be able to filter... more»

Director Delivery at a hospitality company with 10,001+ employees
Dec 27 2017

What is most valuable?

The main ways that I used it when I was in it day to day was keeping up with the burn rate within the teams. Also, to track at the feature level too, as far as how we were doing with actually being able to deliver that feature. So a lot of... more»

How has it helped my organization?

It's a good platform to keep track of all the user stories across all projects. So rather than having one off Excel spreadsheets with all of the requirements, it is a good place to have all of that. I think where we as an organization can get... more»

What needs improvement?

I don't know that I can answer this, because I'm not using it day to day. I'm using CA PPM now, and I know we're looking to integrate Agile Central into CA PPM, which I believe is an option. When I used it before I would say the stronger CA... more»
