CA Technologies – Agile Testing Solutions
Over the last several years CA Technologies has acquired a number of companies and their respective products, to augment its continuous delivery suite and, especially, its DevTest portfolio. In particular, it has recently acquired Grid-Tools and Rally Software. Bloor Research has been asked to explore how Grid-Tools’ products – now known as CA Test Data Manager (formerly Datamaker and CA Datafinder) and CA Test Case Optimizer (formerly Agile Designer) expand and augment the capabilities provided by CA Service Virtualization (previously iTKO’s LISA) and CA Agile Central (formerly Rally), making the whole greater than the sum of the parts. Note that we have not been asked to review in detail any of these particular products, simply to explain how they augment one another. We will start with a brief description of each of these products and then discuss the synergies that CA has created across them.
