Customers Embrace CA LISA Solution to Help Accelerate Application Development
and Delivery

CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced accelerating adoption of its CA
LISA® Service Virtualization software, with 24 new customers representing 50
percent growth in new product sales in the third quarter of FY13 alone.

The company has achieved a series of key milestones, signing major deals with
new and existing customers worldwide in North America, Latin America, EMEA,
Asia and the ANZ markets.

According to Dana W. Edwards, CTO, Union Bank, "We are seeing immediate
benefit from CA LISA . Lifecycle optimization is a priority for us and the
Service Virtualization features of CA LISA are having a positive impact.With
CA LISA, we are able to realize agile, parallel development and increase the
quality of the products we deliver for our customers. Finding areas for
improvement earlier in the lifecycle is reducing our risk."

The widespread adoption of CA LISA is being fueled by the increased pressure
on global brands to deliver applications and services faster than ever. CA
LISA has been shown to accelerate software delivery timelines by as much as 25
to 50 percent, while increasing application quality and decreasing
infrastructure costs.

"We have been using CA LISA for just over a year and have seen considerable
improvements in both the quality and speed of our software releases,
particularly when those applications must interact with our complex systems,"
said Mike Benson, CIO, DirecTV. "Using CA LISA has been a wonderful experience
for DirecTV, providing us with much more rapid end-to-end application
development and testing, which has significantly reduced delivery times. What
would previously have taken a month or two, now takes as little as a day or
even an hour. As a result, we are also able to quickly and effectively adapt
to the changing needs of the business."

"Traditional waterfall software development and 12-18 month release cycles are
rapidly becoming obsolete, as today's consumers expect IT to deliver flawless
applications and services with far greater agility," said Shridhar Mittal,
general manager, Service Virtualization, CA Technologies. "IT leaders who
understand the complexities of producing applications for composite
environments including Cloud, SaaS, mobile and Big Data recognize this
challenge. These customers increasingly turn to CA LISA to increase the
velocity of their software development life cycle, from design and
development, through integration, performance testing and delivery to
production."

CA LISA delivers these benefits through service virtualization-capturing and
simulating the behavior, data and performance characteristics of system
dependencies-so that software development and testing teams do not need access
to costly, highly-constrained production environments to do their jobs
effectively.

"To keep pace with customer and business demands, service virtualization is
emerging as an innovative, valuable, and incredibly powerful solution of the
modern application life cycle. voke research shows that the return on
investment (ROI) of service virtualization is quick and clear. Service
virtualization ROI shows double digit improvements in time to market,
reduction of defects entering production, reduction of overall software cycle
times, and increased test coverage. Service virtualization helps to deliver
more predictable, effective, and efficient business outcomes," said Theresa
Lanowitz, founder, voke.

CA Technologies has also seen a more than 150 percent increase in new
membership in its ServiceVirtualization.com open community over the past six
months. To further foster education in this relatively new IT area, the
company also released a study on the Business Benefits of Service
Virtualization and published the book " Service Virtualization: Reality is
Overrated " (CA Press, 2012).
