Project development teams at this Midwest insurance company had long used CA Agile Central (formerly Rally) to support their Agile development work. While this had been extremely effective in managing tasks and team-level resources, it was not nearly as effective in managing project demand and resource management across the enterprise. The company was using Excel reports to try to fill the gap, but something more robust was clearly needed. CA PPM was the obvious solution, and WinMill Software was the obvious partner to get it done!
WinMill Software Implemented CA PPM with Agile Central integration to give the company the best of all worlds. Development teams continue to use Agile Central for project-level task and resource management, as well as timesheets. (The timesheet integration was particularly welcome, enabling developers to book hours directly in Agile, thus avoiding the need to use a second tool.) Seamless integration with CA PPM allows project managers to effectively manage capacity and demand of portfolios, projects and resources across the organization, and to provide long awaited, enterprise-level management reporting.
