  • Continuous Delivery = Agile + DevOps: Learn more with Guest Forrester Mar 2 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Forrester VP and Principal Analyst, Diego Lo Giudice and Dan Rice, Agile Advisor, CA Technologies
    The Global Agile Software Application Development Online Survey from Forrester Research, Inc. shows that a third of firms have been practicing agile for more than five years, and 54% have successfully scaled their Agile practices to more than half their teams.*

    People who practice agile methods often talk about "pulling quality forward." This and other agile tenets (delivering early and often, reducing batch size, inspecting and adapting, creating a collaborative culture and focusing on customer value) are designed to help organizations get valuable, high-quality features out the door, fast. But they can't happen just in engineering: agile succeeds as a mindset that's systemic throughout your organization.

    Join CA Technologies and guest speaker Diego Lo Giudice, Forrester VP and Principal Analyst in Application Development + Delivery to find out how YOU can help make your business an agile business by implementing agile both upstream (through your business portfolio) AND downstream (through testing and operations).

    If you're ready for a strategic, collaborative approach to delivering value to customers, then you won’t want to miss this webinar.

  • Take Agile to the Next Level: Featuring Forrester Feb 28 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Forrester VP and Principal Analyst, Margo Visitacion and Agile Advisor, CA Technologies, Laureen Knudsen
    According to recent research, “67% of high-performing CEOs are actively embracing agility, and 100% of them state that their companies actively experiment with new products and services.”* To deliver what customers really want, improve your bottom line and see teams really engage, you need to go beyond sprints and standups to business-level agile.

    As the speed of business grows and more competitors adopt agile, grassroots approaches just won’t cut it anymore. “Doing agile” doesn’t guarantee business value, and many companies now have the opportunity to connect their overall business strategy to the execution of the work. Are your agile practices improving or flatlining? Better yet, are they benefiting your bottom line?

    Join CA Technologies and guest speaker Margo Visitacion, Forrester VP and Principal Analyst in Enterprise Architecture, on February 28, at 10:00 AM PT / 1:00 PM ET, for a webinar packed with research-backed tips on sustainable, high-performance agile at scale.

  • Audits and Agile: Apples & Oranges? Recorded: Dec 14 2016 59 mins
    Laureen Knudsen, Agile Advisor
    In many organizations today—such as government, healthcare and banking—the pressure to comply with mandatory regulations feels in conflict with the pressure to move fast, release often and stay open to change. Even as more development teams adopt agile practices, regulatory agencies seem to prefer documentation over working software, templates over discussion, and governance over adaptiveness. So what's a high-compliance organization to do?
    One of the most often heard comments we hear when we talk agile in a highly-regulated environment is that it simply can't be done. If this is common thinking in your organization, you will not want to miss this engaging webinar.
    Laureen Knudsen will show you how to make agile audits easy. With more than 14 years of experience in regulated environments, Laureen designed a lightweight, auditable, product lifecycle allowing highly-regulated organizations to maintain regulatory compliance while reaping the benefits of agile methodologies.
    During this webinar, you’ll learn:
    •How to meet compliance requirements while shifting to agile practices
    •How to effectively use CA Agile Central project data to pass audits quickly and easily
    •How to streamline your product lifecycle
    Who doesn’t want an easier process when it comes to audits? Following the webinar we’ll leave time for Q&A, so bring your questions!

    Andy Jordan, ProjectManagement.com and Jim Tisch, CA Product Marketing, PPM
    Agile is increasingly becoming a factor at the strategic level. There are a number of different frameworks for scaling Agile and they are starting to touch on the realm of traditional portfolio management. Does that mean portfolio management has to change?

    •How to incorporate more strategic Agile concepts into portfolio management
    •The importance of differentiating strategic Agile from Agile for strategic projects (they are different)
    •Minimizing disruption and maximizing commitment with strategic Agile
    •Leveraging Agile in all forms of portfolio management
    This webinar promises to challenge some of the Agile stereotypes that exist as Andy offers innovative ideas and approaches that promise to give all organizations a chance to improve portfolio success. Don’t miss out, register today.

    Peter Saeckel/Advisor PPM/CA Technologies/
    In Teil 3 geht es um die Aktualität der Daten der laufenden Projekte. Hierzu müssen operative Daten zeitnah und exakt eingebracht werden.

Es geht aber auch um Zeitrückmeldung der Projektmitarbeiter, Erkennen von Verzögerungen, Handhabung von Change Requests, Überwachung von Kosten uvm. Sollte einer dieser Faktoren zu einer Umplanung des Projekts führen, muss dies auch im Projektportfolio ersichtlich werden, damit die dortige Planung mit validen Daten arbeiten kann.
