What is most valuable?

Some of the services are open so that we can plug in some other tools as well. If I need to do some metrics I can use those services and a simple "get" request from them. Reporting is much easier and faster than Micro Focus ALM, with CA AC… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We were using Quality Center, Application Lifecycle Management, from Micro Focus. That is hosted on an Oracle Database, whereas Agile Central is completely built on web services. If I have to create some metrics, I can do it via simple web… more»

What needs improvement?

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… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We were using Quality Center, Application Lifecycle Management. The reason for the switch is a decision taken by our leadership team and I don't have any insights into it. Perhaps it was licensing cost. If you compare Quality Center vs… more»

What other advice do I have?

This solution will be of benefit to somebody who has knowledge of and understands web services, as it is built on web services - Representational State Transfer (REST). In our organization, we have about 400-plus users of Agile Central. It… more»

What is most valuable?

It really helps with getting the alignment between strategy and execution for the product teams, all the way down to the delivery teams.

How has it helped my organization?

* It really helped to connect the dots between what the overall vision was down to T-Mobile. * Having that view into features and roadmap from product to delivery teams, and where they are going, then execute on. * Being able to have the information, helping to facilitate those conversations, and… more»

What needs improvement?

What I have learned is that a lot of features that I am looking for, in many cases, are part of a different tool set that CA offers. Really it is more learning about which features and tool, those features would be in. A lot of the features that we would be looking to add, I am learning may not be… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would give it about an eight and a half. The reason why it would not be higher is because some of the things we are looking for we had to get other tools to plug into. Whereas, some of the other solutions we have seen out there, it is all-in-one tool set.

What is most valuable?

The program management is one of the most valuable features in the bank I work for. I was able to create epics for our budgeting concerns and it helped me link everything together.

How has it helped my organization?

CA Agile is a product that really needs more than 100 teams working on it. It works best in big organizations. It definitely streamlines workflow for many users in tandem.

What needs improvement?

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… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is expensive and may not be worthwhile for a small company.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have experience with JIRA. I find Agile has an easier UI. Furthermore, JIRA was more of an IT tool, and Agile has both IT and business capabilities.

What other advice do I have?

When considering a new solution, I always consider: * UI * Price

What is most valuable?

Easy drill down and drill up, creating a very user-friendly menu. The reporting on stories with features and without parent features was quite helpful to keep the enterprise clean.

How has it helped my organization?

Reporting capabilities were better with CA Agile than VersionOne. Both were otherwise quite good. The primary reasons we switched were that our parent company used CA Agile, and that the solution has the built-in ability to track bugs. We still used Bugzilla though.

What needs improvement?

Not as user friendly as VersionOne. At first I liked VersionOne better and was very disappointed in the switch. However, after a month or so I was quite happy with CA Agile.

What is most valuable?

CA Agile Central helps the entire organization run like one powerful team. With the Project and Portfolio Hierarchy, we can have deep visibility into the work our teams are doing and how it ties to our business strategy and customer value.

How has it helped my organization?

* Plans and prioritizes to quickly deliver value. * CA Agile Central provides visibility into how teams are meeting business objectives.

What needs improvement?

CA Agile Central does not have a workflow tool included. If possible, it may be necessary for some companies that this type of feature be included.
