CA Technologies Unveils New Solutions to Drive Business Agility in the Application Economy
November 19, 2015

CA Technologies announced the release of new products and enhancements that help its customers operate with agility, enabling them to evolve, grow and protect their business in the application economy.

With new, organically developed solutions and recently-acquired technologies, CA is delivering new capabilities that help businesses succeed while digitally transforming their companies.

“Not all businesses are on equal footing – some are forging ahead, some are getting left behind. With mounting pressures to respond to competitive, global market pressures, companies that can pivot through technology disruption will remain standing,” said Ayman Sayed, EVP and Chief Product Officer, CA Technologies. “We are extremely bullish on leveraging agile practices to accelerate our customers’ digital transformation journey. With the new software and solutions we’re unveiling today, we’re enabling our customers to survive and thrive in the application economy.”

A recent study by Freeform Dynamics – commissioned by CA to investigate the impact of digital transformation – found that companies which have demonstrated an ability to transform and embrace digital are succeeding: 45 percent report increased customer retention rates while 44 percent also recognize an increase in top line revenue growth. Companies that are furthest along in their digital transformation have two times higher revenue growth and two and a half times higher profit growth than mainstream organizations that have not yet fully implemented their digital strategies.

CA’s new solutions address customer needs across DevOps, Agile Management and Security disciplines, helping drive agility throughout their digital journey. Today’s news is the latest example of CA’s commitment to a product strategy designed to help customers accelerate the pace of transformation, and use technology to manage complexity and drive competitive advantage in the application economy.

Expanded DevOps Solutions Address the Unique Challenges of Digital Transformation

No matter where a business sits in its DevOps journey, CA’s market-leading DevOps portfolio helps customers create more effective and efficient collaboration between Dev and Ops. CA Service Virtualization, now available via Microsoft Azure Marketplace, simplifies and speeds development, simulation and test. In addition, new CA API Management solutions deliver faster time-to-value and accelerate the app development process with CA Live API Creator and CA Mobile App Services, which give developers core app functionality in the form of APIs and software developer kits. The comprehensive portfolio also includes two new, organically developed monitoring solutions: CA Virtual Network Assurance that gives operations teams industry-first assurance for dynamic, next generation virtual networks and legacy infrastructure, and CA Unified Infrastructure Management for z Systems, the industry’s only unified infrastructure management solution to provide comprehensive visibility of services that span mobile-to-mainframe systems in a single view.

A New Agile Management Experience Integrates Agile Coaching

CA’s Agile Management portfolio combines select software and service components from CA Technologies and Rally, which CA acquired in July 2015, to give business leaders a technology and education platform that helps redefine how business deliverables are planned and executed. Rally’s cloud-based solutions and coaching of agile practices have helped companies transform their businesses, some achieving a 50 percent faster time-to-market than industry peers and 25 percent global productivity improvement.

Identity-Centric Solutions Protect Organizations with Simplified and Automated Security

CA’s updated identity-centric security portfolio protects and enables business growth and transformation. With CA Privileged Access Manager, CA delivers breach prevention capabilities designed to protect privileged accounts in VMware NSX environments. At the same time, customers will improve operational efficiency through automation that helps them keep pace with their dynamic cloud and virtualization environments that are the backbone of the application economy. CA also announced updates to CA Identity Suite for a simplified user experience, and the new CA Data Content Discovery to find and classify sensitive mainframe information.

“The impact of digital transformation is massive at both a macro and micro level – and nowhere is this more evident than in the way it has forced companies to change the way they operate and compete,” said Edward Cone, Deputy Director of Thought Leadership, Oxford Economics. “For businesses today, agility – the ability to react to market pressures and customer demands, and to use technology in a way that is integrated and strategic – is as important as cash flow and a strong sales team.”
