Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) April 30, 2013
LAS VEGAS, April 22, 2013 -- CA WORLD 2013 – Digital Celerity and Scaled Agile, Inc. announce a partnership between the two organizations to co-champion industry leading enterprise Agile and project portfolio management thought leadership and best practices to the large and rapidly growing list of clients choosing CA Technologies CA Clarity™ PPM and CA Clarity Agile™ product lines.
Scaled Agile, Inc. is the global leader in implementation of the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe), a proven, codified, and publicly-facing knowledge base that is used to successfully scale Lean|Agile development in the larger software enterprise. The Framework consists of three distinct but strongly interrelated levels: Portfolio, Program, and Team. SAFe calls for clear and strong enterprise portfolio management, program management centered on the SAFe Agile Release Train, and high-performing agile teams working towards a common mission, schedule, and cadence that ensure predictable continuous product development flow.
Members of the Digital Celerity leadership team, experienced and certified with SAFe and CA Technologies CA Clarity PPM and CA Clarity Agile solutions, recognized a natural and powerful fit between the Scaled Agile Framework and CA Technologies’ Clarity platform at all three levels (Portfolio, Program, and Team). To this end, Digital Celerity and Scaled Agile, Inc. are partnering to develop a SAFe Clarity Accelerator that will provide forms, templates, dashboards, reports, automated workflow, and training to empower CA Clarity PPM and CA Clairty Agile customers to take full advantage of the benefits of the Scaled Agile Framework. Benefits include:
- Improved ability to successfully scale agile for large programs and organizations while still reaping intrinsic agile benefits: speed, productivity, quality, adaptability, superior solutions, risk reduction, customer satisfaction, and team member morale.
- Greater alignment between enterprise business-driven priorities, vision, and allocation of resources working on small and large projects and programs (agile or otherwise).
- A highly disciplined, predictable, visible, and accountable form of agile that builds confidence and trust between agile teams and their management and customers.
Allan Mills, Digital Celerity Agile Practice Lead, notes “The benefits of agile at the individual team level are clear.
