CA Technologies and Kalypso Team Up to Help Customers Optimize New Product Development Productivity

March 27th, 2013

ISLANDIA, N.Y., – CA Technologies (CA: NASDAQ) today announced that it is partnering with Kalypso, an innovation management consulting firm, to help customers optimize their portfolio management and new product development processes in order to more reliably select, manage, and deliver new products.

Customers using CA Clarity™ can now leverage Kalypso’s Nova for PPM®, a proven leading practice methodology for high-performance innovation, to optimize all aspects of portfolio management and new product development, including:

• Intelligent and timely discovery, aggregation and prioritization of product success factors;
• Continuous tracking of the product development process against market-defined criteria;
• Full visibility into project status for all active projects across the development portfolio; and
• Appropriate balance of resource investments with potential/projected financial returns.

“Companies that lack consistent, formally defined criteria for formulating and delivering new products are exposed to much greater business risk than those that bring appropriate discipline and governance to the process,” said Santhana Krishnan, vice president, business development, Service & Portfolio Management, CA Technologies. “By leveraging the combined power of CA Clarity and Kalypso’s Nova for PPM methodology, customers can substantially mitigate their exposure to this all-too-common risk while also greatly increasing their potential financial upside.”

“Companies are realizing that, in order to move the needle on return from new products, it takes more than incremental operational improvements,” said Noel Sobelman, a partner with Kalypso and the firm’s New Product Development Practice Leader.  “Selecting the right products, creating a balanced portfolio, and executing in a dynamic, resource constrained environment requires business discipline.  In Nova for PPM, we have leveraged decades of experience and numerous client engagements to create a practical methodology based on management practices that produce results.  We are excited that CA has decided to build Nova for PPM capabilities into Clarity, one of the leading PPM software platforms on the market today.”
