LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
CA WORLD '17 - CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) CEO Mike Gregoire opened CA
World® '17 by encouraging business and IT executives to find the
intersection of innovation and execution, and to seek partners like CA,
whose software solutions accelerate delivery of business value and help
unlock enterprise creativity.
"We've long passed the point where enterprise software is used merely to
drive efficiencies. The focus today is on innovating the next big shift
for your company. That is the number one priority we are focused on -
providing you with solutions that will remove the barriers between your
ideas and outcomes," Gregoire said.
Gregoire urged executives to develop what he calls a sense of digital
intuition: leveraging a myriad of customer data to find patterns,
anticipate trends, inform decisions and even manage risk.
Gregoire drew on CA's own blueprint for digital transformation and
experiences, explaining how the company has reorganized itself as a
Modern Software Factory in recent years to leverage agile, automation,
insights and security to enable maximum business value for its
customers. He went on to recognize the investments that attendees had
already made in information technology and advised them to leverage
their existing strengths to support new innovations.
Gartner notes, "with digital business change being a top CIO priority,
existing IT infrastructure and applications, as well as business
processes, must accommodate the ‘new' quickly and rapidly. If legacy
systems fail to support, integrate or enable these new digital
initiatives, digital business success will be impaired, or even fail."1
"The ability to manage change, respond to new inputs or insights and
pivot has never been more important," said Gregoire. "Our entire
portfolio is designed around the pillars of the Modern Software Factory
to increase the velocity, security and performance of the solutions and
the apps that are critical to our customers' businesses."
Gregoire also discussed the expectations on governments around the world
to actively seek ways to improve the citizen experience through
software. In that vein, CA today announced the CA
Smart Government Challenge, a contest
that invites U.S.-based developers to submit their most innovative ideas
for improving the "citizen experience" of federal government services
Gregoire covered the company's own innovation engine, the CA
Accelerator. With 10 start-ups currently enrolled in the program,
these incubations function like "lean startups" within CA. Each one
receives support and funding to develop and test new product ideas in
the marketplace. One of the program's success stories, FreshTracks.io
today announced the open registration for its beta program.
Gregoire highlighted customers who have built reputations by executing
well on innovative thinking, including:
Citi FinTech- The innovation unit within Citi's Global Consumer
Bank charged with delivering a superior customer experience on mobile,
and a customer of CA
Agile Requirements Designer.
Eurosport - With CA
API Management and CA
App Experience Analytics, this pan-European sports network now
offers a first-of-its-kind viewer experience that gets fans closer to
the action than ever before.
CA Technologies is showcasing over twenty innovations and enhancements
across the portfolio at CA
World '17. These solutions give companies the ability to respond and
adapt to change, as well as evolve existing technology investments for
future success. From on-premises to the cloud and everything in between,
