Pros
It makes work visible, so everybody knows where everything is. It uses Kanban, and that makes work visible.

Reporting is much easier and faster than Micro Focus ALM, with CA AC built on web services... Also, the data is more granular when it comes to tasks, iterations, sprints, and releases.I was able to create epics for our budgeting concerns and it helped me link everything together.Having that view into features and roadmap from product to delivery teams, and where they are going, then execute on.Its ability to scale.Tech support is very responsive, helpful, and available.It helps with getting the alignment between strategy and execution for the product teams, all the way down to the delivery teams.CA Agile Central provides visibility into how teams are meeting business objectives.CA Agile Central helps the entire organization run like one powerful team.

Cons
I do not know what it can do in the area of scrum. Maybe it has that functionality. I have never tried to set it up. You think of LeanKit from the perspective of Kanban. I don't know if there is a template for scrum, a scaled agile framework, or any of those scaling frameworks.

One problem I see is that if there is a dependent user story - for example, if my team is working on one thing and there is a dependent user story from another team - we can have a dependency created but we don't know if there is a change of status from the other team. That is something which is very important for Agile Central to look into so that if the other team makes any changes we will be notified as well.I think there is a missing link with the development activity. Some developers are pushing in new versions of the code, but you cannot make the link from the user story to a specific application version.A lot of the features that we would be looking to add, I am learning may not be within Agile Central, but part of another CA tool set.CA Agile Central does not have a workflow tool included.I think there needs to be some simplification. The team-level side can be challenging and complicated.It could improve by being self-organizing: user stories, different hierarchies, and different perspectives. Not just as a single hierarchical structure, but something that can be multidimensional.I would like to see more Kanban support. As it stands, it doesn't seem to have the features or the layouts that the teams really need to be able to execute their tasks. It almost tries to force you into more of a Scrum style.More customization capabilities would be helpful. Providing a little bit more structure around how the system should be set up in terms of the hierarchy structure might be helpful as well.
