The company will introduce a major new release of its Clarity project and portfolio management software, which will include four new modules and 150 individual enhancements.
CA on Oct. 9 will make its biggest bid yet to help IT customers get more of their budgets under control when it introduces a major new release of its Clarity project and portfolio management software.
Clarity 8, in development since before CA acquired the software with its Niku acquisition in 2005, includes four new modules and 150 individual enhancements aimed at helping customers improve IT governance.
Among the four new modules is the Clarity Risk and Controls Manager, which is designed to help IT effectively manage risk and compliance initiatives such as Sarbanes-Oxley Act, HIPAA and others.
It is a solutions pack that includes software, a Cobit and Unified Compliance Project framework, and professional services from CA or from partner PricewaterhouseCoopers.
The other modules include the Clarity IT Portfolio Manager, Clarity IT Financial Manager and the Clarity Business Relationship Manager.
Taken together, they expand the range of IT functions that can be managed like a development project, according to David Hurwitz, vice president of marketing for CA's business service optimization unit in Redwood City, Calif.
