ISLANDIA, N.Y. -- January 8, 2013

CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced it has been named a Leader in
“The Forrester Wave™: Project/Program Portfolio Management, Q4 2012.”* The

below-the-line vendors.

Above-the-line solutions focus on portfolio planning, with linkage to tactical
work planning and execution. Below-the-line solutions focus on planning,
execution, and work management.

According the report, CA Technologies offers “robust analytics at
transactional and strategic levels.” The report also notes that CA Clarity™
Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) offers customers “a wide range of
deployment options, which allows them to either start quickly via
software-as-a-service (SaaS) or proceed on a traditional on-premises route
that supports a number of configurations.”

Forrester says CA Technologies “adaptable integration strategy permits
companies to bring in critical data from third-party applications such as ALM
and service portfolio management to analyze performance and health to
determine a portfolio alignment. Recent investments in reporting and
application portfolio management enable CA to provide greater transparency and
insight into BT planning strategies.”

The report further states that the ability of CA Clarity PPM “to leverage both
traditional and Agile approaches allows users to manage a wide variety of
projects and work activities. Adaptable ideation, demand management, and
resource planning give organizations flexibility to manage in multiple
approaches. Agile organizations, or those transitioning to Agile, have the
ability to collaboratively plan and execute projects regardless of approach.”

Forrester evaluated vendor solutions against 68 criteria. To qualify for
inclusion in the report, vendors had to meet the following conditions:

  *A formal product dedicated to IT and business-driven PPM.
  *An active client base of more than 100 current paying customers.
  *More than 60 percent of its revenue coming from IT PPM.

“Organizations can greatly benefit from flexible solutions that manage
investments, projects and resources and connect them to IT and business
goals,” said Lokesh Jindal, general manager, Service and Portfolio Management
solutions, CA Technologies. “Forrester’s recognition of our leadership is, in
our opinion, a direct reflection of our success in providing customers with
precisely this kind of solution.”

DSV, one of the largest freight forwarding companies in the world, is using CA
Clarity PPM On Demand to track the time, costs and tasks for day-to-day
departmental activities across their entire project portfolio.

“By improving our project management capabilities, we can deliver better
outcomes across our integrated portfolio at a lower cost to support the
business as it expands,” said Michael Pedersen, Section Manager CTM, Business
Services Group IT, DSV. “We can align resources, projects, assets and
applications with our cost and financial planning to ensure better long-term
results.”
