"CA Agile Central - For scaling agile implementation in an Enterprise"

What do you like best?

Tool is intuitive for real world impediments in agile implementation. It is very simple to configure portfolio kind of large enterprise solution and track the deliverables with little effort.

Minimizes time spent on pulling data and generating reports. User manuals and video tutorials are of top quality and ease to pick the tool. Ease of maintaining admin tasks. Scrum ceremonies, artifacts are simulated very well to get real feel of agile implementation by accessing the tool

What do you dislike?

Pricing seems to be revisited. Though lot of manual content is available but to get support from the team is little long process. Lack of chat support.

"Robust but unpolished"

What do you like best?

There are a lot of things to like about the tool. It's fairly easy to represent large scale projects that break down across a variety of teams and roles. It handles defects, dependencies, and tasks very well.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes info gets lost between the Notes and the Discussion areas. Rules for generation notifications are hugely cumbersome. Auto-saved changes can generate an avalanche of notifications if someone is putzing through a lot of little details. It doesn't offer any tools for sanity checking (for example, it would be nice if it highlighted 0-hour tasks after a spring has started, or let me see all US with fully-completed tasks)

Recommendations to others considering the product

A good, comprehensive solution, but the rough edges will make it less than ideal if you have teams resistant to Agile/Scrum.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Org-wide sprint planning and coordination. It's helped keep multiple separate teams on track and in communication.

What Product Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Team Space"

What do you like best?

I like how requirements are managed. For example, there are User Stories that translate into our product requirements and Test Cases, which become our Software specifications at a more detailed level. Our team uses Rally as a comprehensive team space to track progress during sprint testing, log and track informal defects and write requirements.

What do you dislike?

I did not like the half screen for Test Case view but after many complaints, Rally did switch back to full page view. There should be an easier way to customize fields and make some mandatory and not but there are too many hoops to jump through to do so without the help of an admin.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our team utilizes Rally for requirements and informal defect tracking. This is a great way to track progress and keep tabs on requirements management.

"CA Agile Central - Rally for sprint management "

What do you like best?

Have been using it since 1 year its easy to use for basic requirement collection and task based discussions. Drag and drop feature for priority management. Sumple UI elements for changing filters, right hand side panels for making quick updates on the user story and tasks. New team board is a good start but more is expected.

What do you dislike?

No popup windows, single frame UI that makes it very difficult for managers or leads to open different tasks/stories. On the smaller screens there is so mach scrolling required. Dashboard experience is not the best as it just loads the standard views. Column customisation and filters for grid are missing. While viewing a long list its not possible to search user story or task by name is really frustrating. Default reports are just too basic. UI can be improved a lot.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is best for managing small/medium project having limited number of tasks. UI has some limitations which is ideal in case of Pure Agile - one task at a time, but that is not always the case for team leads and project managers.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It provides a platform to collect all requirements and discussion place to nurture requirements, provides status update and track Sprint releases. By adding Business Owners and Task Owners to Watch list it keeps them updated about progress on the status without sending emails manually.

Discussion thread is not positioned correctly but it still provides necessary features to do the forum discussion on the same.

"Everything is updated inside your team"

What do you like best?

I have been using this web app since i became a working student here in ACT Cebu. My likes of this application is you can create stories for yourself or for your team mate to know what to are your to do's. And you can determine or monitor your progress in making the projects of a company. There are many features that you can do using this application.

What do you dislike?

It needs internet connection and the UI is not easy to adopt easily. It takes time to learn and familiarize the use and the functionalities of every feature.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend this application because it is very useful in any company. This can solve your management system of your employees. Monitor your improvement with your team. Track sales and any transactions or any projects you will make. And it will be organized and in the right track or steps in making those projects using this application.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It can be used in software developing or any business that needs progress monitoring and employee teamwork capability.

"The road to Agile with CA agile central as your companion"

What do you like best?

The way everything is organised in CA agile central. The scrum team in which I am a part of, had our lives made easier by CA Agile central tool. It is so convenient to track user stories and estimate from product backlogs and keep track of our team's activities. The user story creation, ownership and maintenance all comes with easy with Agile. It helps a lot in kick starting a sprint with clear and documented goals and helps achieve them completely by the end of the sprint. In the summary pages, the action items are designed perfectly with easy way to raise and track and defects.

What do you dislike?

The tool has some timely bugs with it. Sometimes, it takes too much time to load. The rest of the time it works fine. Also, we users are not in loop for the announcement of continued updates and hence when a new update arrives we will be having a hard time getting used to it. It also helps in effective communication. Now, we have a better understanding of the market and can recognize good and bad products and deliver well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Would be nice if the speed of the application is increased with less access time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am working in an Agile team with DevOps framework incorporated. With CA Agile central, there were blowing past commitments, no issues on transparency and we were able to get products into market faster.
