CA Technologies (NASDAQ:CA) today announced that FCA Italy, a company of the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) Group, has implemented CA Project & Portfolio Management SaaS (CA PPM SaaS) to plan and control its IT spending, and increase the company's agility and responsiveness to the changing IT needs of the company.

"We needed a solution that would improve efficiency and reduce processing times, while boosting our ICT staff's productivity," says Andrea Pomettini, ICT Planning and Control Manager at FCA Italy. "CA Project & Portfolio Management SaaS turned out to be a perfect fit for our needs. The SaaS option gives us a lot of flexibility, and the improved transparency and collaboration has taken the responsiveness of the FCA IT budgeting process to new heights."

CA PPM SaaS provides FCA Italy with a single system of record to help collect, maintain and compare ICT spending figures over time, both general and administrative. With intuitive tools to deliver a view into the entire landscape, CA PPM SaaS offers FCA Italy ICT the ability to optimize resource allocations quickly, helping core business functions to adapt with market and business changes.

After evaluating several PPM tools, FCA Italy selected the cloud-based CA PPM SaaS to reduce project risks by enabling simpler and cheaper implementation. The modular structure of CA PPM SaaS allowed FCA Italy to implement the tool gradually, thereby reducing its configuration effort and - along with CA Productivity Accelerator - facilitating user adoption.

"The SaaS option provides greater insight into infrastructure and updates to the platform. Now we can easily share data on CA PPM SaaS with our colleagues across the globe," says Pomettini.

"Customers are aiming to improve their IT budgeting efficiencies and enable their IT teams to be more responsive to the changing IT needs of the business," said Michele Lamartina, Country Manager Italy, CA Technologies. "CA PPM enables customers like FCA Italy to make more informed, strategic investments, so they can optimize their enterprise IT, service and product portfolios."
