Kommentare: We work on development project, We get the work from business in the form of User stories. The user stories and broken down in to Defects and assigned to developers to work. CA agile is tailor made for projects which follow agile methodologies, it has planned set of rules and guidelines that helps. Monitoring and report creation process is simplified. it takes times to get used to the tool, once we are good with the process, it is very easy tool to use. Go for it!
1. Software is build around agile methodologies , best suited for projects using agile.

3. Tailor made for projects which involves a lot of teams within it.
4. Monitoring,Status of work can be easily determined.
5. Dashboards and reports are inbuilt and can be customized.
6. Separate process for sprint planning tabs are available.
7. Different stages of work flow like Backlog, analysis,development, test readiness and test execution and their count along with customization are really helpful.
8. Integrates well with CICD pipeline tools like Jenkins and Sonar Qube etc.
1. Very few fields options are available. We were using ALM before moving on Agile central, all the fields in ALM was not mapped to CA agile. It was difficult to map the fields since it has very less field options.
2. Customization and Report creation during the initial phase was very difficult.
3. Need to depend on the Scrum master to make process changes.
4. Iniital setup of the process was difficult and transition of people from water fall to Agile using CA Agile was challenging.

Too Much for Us
Kommentare: Clarity was purchased prior to me being hired as the PMO. I found it cumbersome and the Project Managers simply hated it. They felt if didn't do what they needed it to do.
Vorteile: Reporting was pretty good. Of course there was so much configuration that needed to be done to get the reports we needed.
Configuration was tough.
Project Managers found it too complicated.
As the PMO I thought it was like using the Space Shuttle to drive across the street.

Agile in the cloud
Vorteile: It is intuitive to create stories, break down to tasks and assign them to the team. The reporting features are very useful for executive summary in my monthly report. Easy to track the progress. It truly has the agile aspects build in for software development environment. The customizable dashboard allows you to track multiple projects and display the most important graphics on one screen.
Nachteile: The QA process is a little bit difficult to use. Since we are using a separate bug reporting system, it doesn't really integrate with it. The process of creating test cases and report defects are way too complicated for our environment. Overall, I don't have too much complaints against Rally.

Rally for Agile Project Management and Portfolio Management
Kommentare: Rally has expanded their functionality since Computer Associates purchased Rally . I like the alignment with the Scaled Agile framework. Allowing the roll up of stories to features and capabilities to align with value stream has been instrumental in educating our executive leadership team and prioritizing our portfolio
Vorteile: Integration and customization support allow us to interface with our internal applications
Nachteile: Continue to expand the portfolio and program management roll up and reporting features

Rally works, but they need to stop constantly updating the UI, which is overly complex
Vorteile: Tasks link to stories, stories link to features, ways to track everything. Allows you to provide a good amount of detail within the stories and acceptance criteria
Nachteile: too much effort to link stories to features, too hard to see the details on the features if they are similarly named. task creation and advancing is easy, but the page layout of stories is now convoluted and confusing

Vorteile: Really helps to manage user stories and planning for iterations. Managing back logs is this tool is helpful, so items are not missed or ignored.

Agile methodology in the cloud
Kommentare: I get things done using rally, took some time to get used to it, but it delivers the Agile way.
Vorteile: It's a great way to communicate company wide, easy to create user stories and breaking them down into tasks, the latest UI upgrade was a big improvment.
Gets laggy sometimes, can't see attached images properly once there is more than one image,
mostly small quirks, all in all it's a good product.

Kommentare: Used CA PPM to maintain project plans for multiple projects in a large multi-vendor, multi-million dollar program.
Vorteile: CA PPM is a great project portfolio management tool. The feature I like the most about this tool is that, it lets you add dependent tasks from other projects, so they can be tracked in one place.
Nachteile: I think the version I used did not let me import tasks from Excel

Nice tool but still missing key items
Vorteile: Its helping breaking all the User stories into many items and assigned it to the relevant team and putting also the effort , then easily you can extract report
Nachteile: main item that it doesn't show plan vs actual so it doesnt say anything if you are at 70% than compare to what? reports should be easily change from private to public

CA PPM is a very comprehensive tool for project portfolio management.

Vorteile: Ease of use to manage Agile development process. Easily Manage User Stories, track task progress
Nachteile: Currently we manage bugs/issues in a separate software tool. We tried managing bugs through this software, din't like how bugs were converted to a User Story, rather than a task under a Story

outdated interface, unecessarily complicated feature set
Kommentare: There are better tools out there I would guess - Clarity is just overly cluttered and noisy and could really use a revamp to be more relevant.
Vorteile: Level of customization, timesheet approval process, ability to save entered time in advance.
Nachteile: Design, layout and UI are extremely outdated and cumbersome navigation abounds when you are using this tool. There's just too much going on all the screens at any time. Way too many options, cluttered look and feel, and lack of clarity around logical next steps or calls to action.

A good but very complex software for beginner
Kommentare: We can effectively track our various short projects as part of overall project portfolios. We were able to align our activities with bigger task timelines set by management.
Vorteile: Content is very rich wth lots of configuration options available. You can quickly start the project and assign the timelines. You can also manage resource allocation. Overall a very exhaustive tool that needs a good amount of training before you start usage.
Nachteile: Its quite complex and not at all for beginners. You need to have a propre training t use this. Sometimes, its functionality are so overwhelming that you loose the focus
