CA Agile Central Primary Use Case

Director Delivery at a hospitality company with 10,001+ employees
Most of our development teams are Agile, meaning they do development in two-week sprints. So they use Agile Central for the input of all of their user stories, all of their test cases. We just recently moved to Planview Enterprise so that we can actually start doing dependency mapping across features. But it's mainly a way for all of the individual teams to define all our user stories and keep up with the overall tracking of how they're doing, sprint by sprint. View full review »

Senior IT Manager at a insurance company with 201-500 employees
Primary use case is agile development and Mode 2 development. It has performed really well. We have taken some teams that were non-Agile and tried to do a combined approach. This eliminated some of the heavy documentation that we were used to with waterfall. We have been able to deliver our integration between CA and HPE ALM in a period of time that is about half of where we were before. View full review »

Project Manager
We use it to track all of our work. We also manage our portfolio in it. It works. It's a bit cumbersome to manage the Project Picker. As we sunset teams or projects close out - but we still have test cases tied to those teams or projects that are being used in other spaces - we have this monstrous list in the Project Picker that becomes really difficult to manage and find, and we can't clean that up ourselves. It would be nice if it was easier to do that and not lose your history. View full review »

Senior Engineer Manager at a manufacturing company with 1,001-5,000 employees
We are promoting SAFe within our organization and we have a organization that actually follows the Scaled Agile Framework. We're using Agile Central right now to track our users' portfolio items, our product features, our product backlog, our iteration status, and to track metrics. That's what we're using it for right now. It's been pretty good. We've been using it for the last two and half years. We've tried a couple other products in the past, before we moved on to Rally CA or Agile Central 2. So it has really worked out very well. View full review »

Ricardo Pianta
Engineer Manager at a tech services company with 5,001-10,000 employees
I use Agile Center mostly to do two things: * To manage my requirements and I have hundreds of thousands of requirements. * My teams uses it for their daily agile management. They describe their user stories and track the progress of their projects. We are a former customer before it was acquired by CA. In that time, we were using just a fraction of what was there. This year, we started having more implementation and moving into the newest version. This has allowed us to use some of the high-end features like the label hierarchy, and it is good so far.

Kent Seaman
Director Of Tool Chain Automation at American Express
I have a couple of individuals on my team that help manage the utilization of CA Agile Central to make sure that we are being as mature as we possibly can for Agile practices. Performance has been good. It allows for a lot of customization, which has been very helpful, because we pull key metrics, report up to our unit CIO on certain areas. View full review »

Shane Mckee
Director Of Enterprise Architecture at Best Western
Organizing all of our Agile work load, and projects that we have in the pipeline. It's been good. I don't know that it's best suited for Kanban which is the Agile style that we're using. It seems a little more focused on Scrum. So having some more Kanban methodology built into the product would be nice, but it does allow us to move our stories along the board, and have a good visualization of where everything is in process.
