If you want your own developers to extend CA Agile Central with apps and connectors, our experts can provide Agile and CA Agile Central guidance that shortens the learning curve and saves time.  Or, let your people focus on their everyday work and let our experts, who know the CA Agile Central ecosystem inside and out, build what you need to drive flow and value.  CA Agile Central offers several types of Technical Services to support your Agile business.
 

App Development

CA Agile Central ALM is a powerful platform built to be extended. Make CA Agile Central your own with custom apps; we can:
• Build apps that support your Agile framework and your communication needs
• Develop information radiators that support good decision-making
• Define apps that support an Agile mindset and help you leverage Agile’s strengths
 

App Developer Coaching

Your own developers can build custom apps, and our experts can coach them to achieve better results faster. Let us help you build apps that are valuable and performant. We can:
• Guide on how to design an app that meets the goals
• Mentor on best practices for leveraging our AppSDK
• Pair-program and/or review code
 

Connector Development

Some decisions benefit from information from many sources. CA Agile Central Connectors enable CA Agile Central ALM to interact with other tools in your environment. We can:
• Build new connectors to your systems, including home-grown applications
• Extend existing CA Agile Central-built connectors like QC, Jira and Bugzilla
 

Connector Install & Guidance

Speed installation and improve results of Standard CA Agile Central-built connectors with guidance from Technical Services. The larger the systems involved and the more CA Agile Central projects involved, the more configuration decisions need to be made. In short coaching sessions, we can:
• Recommend data mappings
• Build consensus on configuration
• Troubleshoot results
 

Data Migration

Technical Services can conduct your one-time move of data into a CA Agile Central workspace, because you are sunsetting another system or another CA Agile Central subscription or workspace. We can help you successfully move work items, timeboxes, users, and projects.
 
Please notify your Account Representative of your interest in installing a connector and they will facilitate a conversation with our Technical Services team.
