CA Technologies was positioned the furthest in the Leaders quadrant for Completeness of Vision. According to the report, "Leaders in this market have shown a combination of strong vision either in leading agile thought or the combination of agile with developer collaboration and DevOps. Leaders have broad market reach and adoption, as shown in client inquiries and survey data as well as their corresponding growth and marketing presence. Vendors in this category are safe bets for large-scale adoption and we expect them to have a continued solid market presence. Leaders tend to have established marketplaces that provide them with extended functionality via partners. All have strong integration capability. They have strong networks for training and implementation, and can operate well globally." Additionally, regarding evaluation criteria for completeness of vision, the report says, "Our key criteria are market understanding and product strategy." "As companies continue to compound the benefits of agile by scaling across their organizations, it's critical that they consider not only their tools, but the processes and expertise that is needed to help them drive success," said Angela Tucci, general manager, CA Agile Management. "CA's combination of best-in-class solutions paired with some of the most experienced consultants in the industry means that our customers are truly equipped to take their agile transformations to new heights. We believe this recognition from Gartner validates our strategy of partnering with our customers to set them apart from their competition by enabling them to reduce time-to-market and deliver value faster for their customers."
