ISLANDIA, N.Y. -- January 7, 2013

CA Technologies (NASDAQ:CA) today announced the availability of “The
Innovative CIO: How IT Leaders Can Drive Business Transformation,” the latest
book published by CA Press.

This pragmatic guide is designed to help Chief Information Officers (CIOs)
become the leaders of innovation in their organizations and to meet innovation
challenges head on. It provides valuable tips for identifying innovation
sources and fostering an innovative spirit within the organization, as well as
practical tools for evaluating, tracking and selling the value of innovation
to the business.

Co-authors Andi Mann, George Watt and Peter Matthews quantify the benefits and
risks of IT innovation, survey opportunities for innovation from existing and
emerging technologies, and identify the organizational structures and
processes that have proven to deliver ongoing innovation.

“Today’s CIOs understand the need to innovate quickly to help create new
business opportunities, to find faster, easier and cheaper ways of completing
tasks, and ultimately, to unlock their company’s full potential in order to
remain competitive,” said co-author Andi Mann, vice president, Strategic
Solutions, CA Technologies. “This book targets IT and non-IT business leaders
and others seeking to advance their careers. With valuable strategies that
help to avoid common innovation pitfalls, readers can understand where to find
innovation, and how to recognize, foster and capture it when it occurs.”

“The Innovative CIO” also includes case studies to help readers:

  *Take advantage of IT and business innovation opportunities created by new
    and emerging technologies;
  *Shift IT innovation from an afterthought to prime mover in strategic
    business planning ; and
  *Inject IT into the dynamic core of an organization’s culture, training,
    structure, practice and policy.

“This book provides real guidance and practical advice for CIOs who seek to
lead innovation using the IT in their organizations,” said Professor Joe
Peppard, Cranfield School of Management, UK, who provided the foreword for the
book. “The Innovative CIO shows how IT can help drive value from innovation,
and how to innovate mindfully with IT through insightful examples and case
studies. There are numerous takeaways that won’t leave readers disappointed.”

In addition, CA Technologies recently unveiled a new podcast series, “Talking
Innovation,” featuring interviews with experts on a range of topics related to
innovation, including an interview with Mann. Visit the Innovation page to
