CA Agile Planner Being Designed to Empower Customers to Manage Development in the Cloud

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Salesforce.com Dreamforce Conference -- CA, Inc. (Nasdaq: CA), the leader in Enterprise IT Management, and salesforce.com (NYSE: CRM), the enterprise cloud computing company, today announced they have partnered to deliver agile development management in the cloud on the Force.com platform.

Through the alliance, CA and salesforce.com intend to introduce CA Agile Planner on Force.com to help small businesses and enterprises alike accelerate development timelines while gaining control and visibility over 100 percent of their development initiatives. The intended result will be increased innovation and reduced time-to-market.

"The combination of CA's leadership in serving enterprise IT and salesforce.com's experience in cloud computing made this the perfect partnership," said Marc Benioff, chairman and CEO, salesforce.com. "Agile development is transforming the way that companies innovate, and by partnering with CA, we're empowering companies to manage agile development in the cloud."

CA Agile Planner is designed to build on salesforce.com's agile management expertise. After transitioning to the agile development methodology, salesforce.com has amassed deep expertise on managing innovation. The company shared some of its best practices with CA to help the Enterprise IT Management leader fuel its research and development programs.

By being built on the trusted Force.com platform, CA Agile Planner joins the more than 135,000 custom applications built by the salesforce.com community of 200,000 developers. It will better enable users to simultaneously manage multiple development methodologies such as Scrum and Extreme Programming (XP).

"Force.com's growth and momentum is nothing short of amazing, as is the tremendous productivity our engineers are gaining with it," said John Swainson, CEO, CA. "With CA Agile Planner, CA is seeking to leverage both technologies for the benefit of developers large and small. If they want to develop better cloud services, regardless of methodology, and get them to market faster, CA Agile Planner on Force.com will help get them there."

CA Agile Planner will be integrated with CA Clarity PPM, the leading project and portfolio management system used by more than 250,000 people at more than 1,000 enterprises worldwide to manage various programs, especially development initiatives. Through integrating CA Agile Planner and CA Clarity PPM, CA customers would have comprehensive management control regardless of development methodology.

CA Agile Planner: Enterprise Tested, Community Approved

Agile development is based on collaborative teams using iterative development to rapidly deliver high-quality applications that meet evolving requirements and goals. In the agile spirit of collaboration, CA is engaging the global developer community to source the features and functionality of the CA Agile Planner.
