CA leads All Vendors With Most Nominations And Most Awards Won At 2007 Project And Portafolio Managment Summit


CA (NYSE: CA) today announced that it has been voted the winner of the “Best Portfolio Analysis” and “Most Flexible/Configurable” categories for its CA Clarity solution at the recently concluded Gartner 2007 Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) Summit in Boston. In total, CA Clarity was a final nominee for four of this year’s five award categories. CA was also a finalist for “Best PPM Quality Process” and “Most PPM Synergy.” This marks the sixth consecutive Gartner PPM Summit where CA Clarity has been recognized with more nominations and won more awards than any other vendor.

The Project & Portfolio Management Innovation™ Awards are especially meaningful because they are voted on solely by the 200 attending Senior IT Executives after hearing from leading PPM vendors during a series of boardroom presentations over a two day period. The awards recognize technology and service providers for their solutions, programs, service and support, and design and delivery of presentations.

“We’re honored that our CA Clarity PPM solution has again been so widely recognized by IT executives for its breadth, depth and configurability,” said Carl Landers, vice president of marketing for CA Clarity. “IT faces greater challenges every year to work more efficiently, while meeting the growing needs of the business. These accolades from the Gartner PPM Summits are one very important testament from the user community that CA Clarity is seen as the trusted solution to meet these ever-changing demands.”

The latest Project & Portfolio Management Innovation™ Awards round out a string of seven consecutive commendations for the CA Clarity product and strategy at the Gartner PPM Summits held semi-annually between North America and Europe. The strong record of success now includes:

Best Portfolio Analysis and Most Flexible/Configurable, North America 2007
Best Solution, Best Vendor and Best Presentation, Europe 2006
Best Solution and Best Strategy, North America 2006
Best Solution and Best Vendor, Europe 2005
Best Vendor and Best Strategy, North America 2005 " Best Solution and Best Vendor, Europe 2004

Recently, CA Clarity was also positioned in the “Leaders” quadrant in Gartner Inc.’s “Magic Quadrant for IT Project and Portfolio Management Applications, 2007” report.* Gartner positions vendors in the magic quadrant based on their completeness of vision and ability to execute.
