Sales of the company's flagship IT governance technology were up 63% year-over-year.
Computer Associates on Thursday reported a 63 percent year-over-year growth in 2004 sales of Clarity, its flagship IT governance solution.

According to CA, Clarity (formerly Niku), outperformed the overall project and portfolio management software market. The enterprise-software vendor cited a Gartner Research report, which stated that CA's solution grew five times faster than the overall market for project and portfolio management software. The market rose by 12.3 percent, and CA grew faster than all other project and portfolio management vendors, according to the report.

Clarity is used by more than 425,000 users at more than 425 companies, CA said. It features project management, portfolio and resource planning, and time and cost management.

The Gartner report forecast continued growth for the software market through 2009. A companion report on vertical industries indicates that financial services, discrete manufacturing, communications and process manufacturing led vertical markets for PPM software last year.
