LAS VEGAS -- April 23, 2013
CA WORLD -- CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced a strategic direction
to help mainframe customers embrace the future dynamic data center and move
closer to the ideal state of unbounded business enablement at zero cost.
The company has made significant new investments in mainframe solutions to
provide customers with the tools to manage data centers with utmost
reliability, security and speed.
“Information technology is in the midst of a tremendous change cycle,” said
Michael Madden, general manager, Mainframe. “We have responded with a strategy
that serves the evolving requirements of the data center, including
cost-effectiveness, data security and speed and a fantastic end-to-end
Once bound by on-premise facilities, data centers today are a dynamic mix of
on-premise and virtual computing power. CA Technologies is substantially
evolving its mainframe management solutions to make such dynamic data centers
possible and aligned to meet business needs.
The CA Technologies Mainframe strategy will help customers by:
*Sustaining investments in foundational technologies that are critical to
the evolution of data centers and the modern mainframe;
*Collaborating closely with customers on product design to help CA
Technologies develop products that meet customers’ most critical IT needs;
*Streamlining for savings and return on investment through the company’s
Mainframe Software Rationalization Program (MSRP), which assesses
customers’ portfolio needs and can help them to realize estimated savings
of up to $1.4 million* a year.
CA Technologies is making great strides in delivering a mainframe portfolio
that helps customers transition to the dynamic data center—one that delivers
business services seamlessly across mainframe, distributed systems and the

cut the total cost of ownership for customers, and deliver lower licensing
costs, simple installation processes and easy upgrades.

applications for a robust mainframe management platform that lets users
create dashboards to manage DB2, workload automation and other functions
all from one place.
*CA Workload Automation: integrates the user experience across the hybrid
computing environment of mainframe, distributed and cloud. The solution
includes several new capabilities that help customers reduce complexity
and proactively manage and anticipate the needs of the dynamic data

demonstrating its dedicated focus on customers. CA Communities, CA
Technologies online user community, provides customers with direct access
to its more than 38,000 company experts, partners and users.
The mainframe is a workhorse in the backend of much of today’s critical
business, and CA is busy enabling other capabilities in its portfolio to work
with mainframe solutions, to provide a seamless and successful customer
experience across distributed, cloud and mobile operations.
“Our unique advantage is that we can manage virtual data centers from soup to
nuts,” said Madden. “We can tie everything together and manage it holistically
when we bring the full CA Technologies portfolio to bear.”
