Rally helps your entire organization run like one powerful team.

Connecting purpose to outcomes.

Do you strive to make faster, smarter decisions? If so, your execution and delivery need to align to your business strategies. Rally (formerly CA Agile Central) helps organizations keep track of their business objectives and align around a centralized purpose for better business outcomes. Use it to tie strategy and daily work, track and manage delivery and leverage data to accurately measure performance.

Align teams and empower them to innovate.

With Rally, teams can work the way they want, better understand their impact and stay ruthlessly focused on value. They can use lists, boards or planning timeline views to visualize work. That way, they’ll always see how their work aligns to bigger objectives while keeping priorities in check. The result? You build the right products, in the right way, at exactly the right time.

Plan the right work, measure the right results.

Do you struggle to manage dependencies and risks across multiple teams or delivery groups? Rally provides comprehensive roll-ups of progress, dependencies, alignment and plan health—so teams and groups can maintain schedules and make intentional decisions. With easy-to-understand planning analytics, teams, program leaders and release train engineers alike can understand changes in real-time.

Create an outcomes-oriented culture.

Plan, execute and measure all your work against the objectives that matter. Enable continuous improvement and gain deeper insights with real-time performance metrics to measure productivity, predictability and responsiveness. Quickly adjust to continuously meet changing customer needs, industry trends and business goals—all while keeping employees focused.

Rally helps everyone across the organization succeed.

Teams

Team members: scrum masters, product owners, developers and other doers

You’re embedded in the agile team—interfacing between product management and customers, writing user stories, collaborating with testers, grooming a manageable backlog and doing the work. And you do all of this while putting the customer first and adhering to your company’s central purpose. With Rally you can see exactly what the high-level business outcomes are, how the work is contributing to them and how it’s related to other work across the organization, all with the autonomy to get work done in a single workspace.

How does Rally help teams succeed?

  • Allows teams to focus on a common objective and goal
  • Promotes data visibility for better planning and team performance
  • Enables teams to see how their work is impacting the business
  • Alerts teams to dependencies and risks and helps increase efficiency with automated tasks and workflows
