CA Ushers in New Level of Agility with CA Agile Vision for Application Development from the Cloud

Proven and Robust Agile Planning App Built and Delivered Fast on Salesforce.com's Force.com Platform Helps Accelerate the Market Shift to Cloud 2

NEW YORK, April 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Salesforce.com Cloudforce 2 Tour -- CA, Inc. (Nasdaq: CA) today announced the general availability of CA Agile Vision(TM) Team Edition, the first native Force.com agile development planning tool, designed to enable companies to unlock the competitive advantage of application development management entirely in the cloud.

With CA Agile Vision, CA joins Salesforce.com® in helping companies to realize tremendous success with cloud computing. Announced at Dreamforce 2009, CA Agile Vision was built leveraging salesforce.com's Force.com platform and is based on proven technology successfully used by salesforce.com for its industry-leading Sales and Service Cloud apps. The new offering is being demonstrated today with an integration to salesforce.com's Chatter for integrated social collaboration, a unique value extension of the product that is scheduled for general availability later this year.

"For those seeking to leverage an agile software development process, coordinating effective project and portfolio planning and prioritization in conjunction with a compelling SaaS solution can enable users to quickly adopt technology as they strive to deliver robust software releases in less time," said Melinda Ballou, program director for IDC's Application Life-Cycle Management research. "With this new CA offering, organizations have the opportunity to increase collaboration across the enterprise and improve the product development process."

With CA Agile Vision Team Edition, companies can bolster agile planning and collaboration to realize faster, more efficient releases. As a service delivered in the cloud, it frees teams to concentrate on faster, more efficient application development rather than costly and time-consuming software installation and maintenance. Priced at $15 per user per month, teams can purchase the product online with a credit card and plan their first sprints in 15 minutes.

"With CA Agile Vision Team Edition, development teams across the country or around the world have access to a cost-effective offering they can use right away to help deliver better products to market faster," said Brian Bell, senior vice president and general manager of the Project and Portfolio Management business unit at CA. "The Team Edition service is just the beginning. We also plan to deliver comprehensive enterprise agile management from the cloud when we bring together CA Agile Vision with our leading solution for project and portfolio management (PPM), CA Clarity PPM On Demand."

"Salesforce.com and CA share a similar vision for customer success with the Cloud 2," said Kendall Collins, chief marketing officer, salesforce.com. "As the first native agile planning app available on Force.com, CA Agile Vision provides customers with a solution to help them innovate in app development faster and better than ever before by incorporating the social features of Force.com."

CA Agile Vision is the newest solution in CA's comprehensive portfolio of on-demand applications, including CA Clarity PPM On Demand, CA Service Desk on Demand, and CA RMDM On Demand. To further improve agile product development in the enterprise, CA is planning to release an enterprise edition of CA Agile Vision that will be integrated with CA Clarity PPM, the leading project and portfolio management system used by more than 1,200 enterprises worldwide to manage strategic programs and innovative new products.

CA Agile Vision: Enterprise Tested, Community Approved

Agile development is based on collaborative teams using iterative and incremental development to rapidly deliver high-quality applications that meet evolving requirements and goals. In keeping with agile practices, CA created CA Agile Vision iteratively and collaboratively with the agile community, allowing agile developers and evangelists to submit, vote on and discuss feature ideas, many of which were incorporated into the solution.

Interested agile enthusiasts can access up-to-date information and join the community and at ca.com/agile.
