We have been looking for ways to better integrate PPM and EA to drive unified IT Optimization, Investment Planning and Standards programs
Austin, Texas (PRWEB) December 15, 2008
Troux Technologies™, the leader in strategic IT planning and control software, today announced Troux CA Clarity Connection™, the first software connector to enable two-way integration between the leading project and portfolio management software, CA Clarity™ PPM, and the just-announced Troux 8, strategic IT planning and control software suite.
The company also announced that its Troux CA Clarity Connection product has been certified ca smart™ with CA Clarity PPM software from CA (NASDAQ: CA). The ca smart certification program attests that products will integrate seamlessly with CA's industry-leading solutions, providing customers with substantial and immediate business benefits.
This new level of integration, delivered by Troux CA Clarity Connection, provides the CIO with the unmatched visibility necessary to identify significant, actionable cost takeout opportunities while at the same time better prioritizing limited discretionary funds for maximum business impact. CIOs and their teams are able to make more informed decisions to achieve the IT spending realignment and business agility requirements dictated by today's tough economic environment.
"With Troux CA Clarity Connection, the Project Office and EA teams work together, each benefiting from the other's insights and delivering an end-to-end and integrated investment and portfolio planning process for the CIO," said David Hood, CEO of Troux Technologies, Inc."
"CA Clarity PPM and Troux are leaders in their respective markets. The combined solution enables joint customers to achieve a unified and comprehensive governance model for the entire IT investment landscape," said Helge Scheil, corporate senior vice president and general manager, Governance Group, CA.
Maximize Value of IT Assets
Troux CA Clarity Connection provides significantly enhanced insight into the IT investment portfolio and enables better alignment of that portfolio with business objectives. These capabilities are delivered through two way mapping: map CA Clarity PPM project portfolio information (investment ideas, projects, status, business services and costs) to Troux's enterprise technology and business architecture, and map Troux's architecture portfolio information (applications, assets, lifecycles, technologies, owners, skills and business impact information) to projects and services portfolios in CA Clarity PPM.
The benefits are dramatic:
- Achieve comprehensive enterprise IT visibility and control.
- Provide insights to more effectively realign budgets, priorities and assignments.
- Make better decisions, faster, leading to increased business agility and flexibility.
- Finally, understand the true total cost of IT ownership.
"We have been looking for ways to better integrate PPM and EA to drive unified IT Optimization, Investment Planning and Standards programs," said Phil LaBelle, Vice President of IT Strategy, Architecture & Planning, Hyatt Hotels & Resorts. "Now with Troux CA Clarity Connection the information and processes can be integrated to deliver a higher level of insight into how our IT resources are being utilized to support the critical needs of the business."
