Gartner’s 2016-2017 CMO Spend Survey found that marketing departments are spending 38% of their tech budgets on external development services and cross-charges from internal IT teams. Strategic marketing and IT leaders are looking for ways to streamline technology and eliminate solutions that limit integrations and scalability. It’s important to look at the resources required to maintain the marketing applications you use and compare them to other options available in the marketplace.

Increasing power demands and space limitations in the data center have begun to transition server virtualization technologies from luxuries to necessities. Server virtualization provides a path toward server consolidation that results in significant power and space savings, while also offering high availability and system portability. Today, vendors are building hardware and software platforms that can deliver virtualization solutions at near-native performance.
Automated application quality assurance and testing are fundamental to the delivery of the service levels and managed risks that are essential to delivering business outcomes you can depend on. In this context, CA’s mainframe Application Quality Management and Testing Tools send very strong messages: the tools are being actively developed and, where appropriate, integrated with equivalent tools on the distributed platforms, to help companies deliver holistic, automated, business services.
Business and IT executives should not have to choose between their desire to innovate for future growth and the desire to avoid disrupting current operations. Enterprise innovation that embraces and extends existing infrastructure and applications is possible through modern software architectures such as web services and SOA – as long as those investments perform competitively when measured against alternative platforms and they are able to be modernized to participate in these architectures.
This white paper discusses why application release and deployment automation platforms are becoming increasingly vital for IT operations in global enterprises and explores the specific requirements of such a platform in order for it to prove beneficial, and effective, and offer a substantial return on investment.
For years, many support teams have been hamstrung by their traditional service desk platforms, which require complex, time-consuming coding for virtually every aspect of customization. This complexity makes it costly and difficult for support organizations to adapt—and places an increasingly substantial burden on the agility and efficiency of the business as a whole. CA Cloud Service Management is a clearly differentiated alternative to traditional service desk platforms. CA Cloud Service Management is purpose built for speed—rapidly accelerating time-to-value where other SaaS solutions fall short. Implement in days, adopt with minimal training, configure without programmers, automate end-user requests, and get automatic upgrades.
Over the past 15 years, we’ve seen generations of service management platforms come and go—but many critical limitations persist. Consequently, IT organizations, and the businesses they serve, suffer from a lack of agility, poor service levels and high costs. This paper offers a look at the obstacles of prior generations of
service management platforms, and it reveals how a new generation of solutions addresses some of these fundamental limitations.
Service management platforms have a vital role to play, but in most organizations, they’re not living up to expectations—delivering far too much complexity and cost, and far too little business value and time
savings. This proves true even in organizations that have migrated to new solutions in recent years. This paper outlines why legacy service desks and even newer platforms have not delivered on expectations, it describes the requirements for a service desk solution to be truly effective in today’s business environment and it details how CA Cloud Service Management delivers on these key requirements.
The need to speed innovation is a fundamental business reality today—but so is the need to contend with finite budgets and resources. Project and portfolio management (PPM) delivers the key capabilities organizations need to straddle these competing demands, but for many businesses, the time and money required to implement on-premises PPM platforms has kept these initiatives on the back burner. With CA Project & Portfolio Management SaaS (CA PPM SaaS) your organization can leverage a comprehensive, SaaS-based PPM solution. As a result, you can harness the capabilities you need to innovate more quickly and optimize your resource investments—without having to incur the time and effort of deploying and maintaining a PPM platform on premises.
A number of high-profile security breaches over the last two years have highlighted the damage that a rogue systems administrator or stolen privileged credentials can cause. Today, fewer than half of all business organizations have deployed the type of privileged identity management (PIM) solution that could help improve the situation.
This Ovum Decision Matrix (ODM) provides an in-depth view of the leading PIM solutions that are available to deal with these issues. It compares their technology, the market position each vendor has achieved, their ability to execute, and the overall maturity of each offering.
Privileged Access Management is an imperative to addressing PCI compliance. Yet its importance extends beyond just meeting PCI compliance requirements as it allows an organization to improve its overall security posture against today’s external and internal threats.
CA Privileged Access Manager provides an effective way to implement privileged access management in support of PCI compliance and other security needs.
Today, 75% of Twitter traffic and 65% of Salesforce.com traffic comes through APIs. But APIs are not just for the social Web. According to ProgrammableWeb.com, the number of open APIs being offered publicly over the Internet now exceeds 2000—up from just 32 in 2005. Opening APIs up to outside developers enables many technology start-ups to become platforms, by fostering developer communities tied to their core data or application resources. This translates into new reach (think Twitter’s rapid growth), revenue (think Salesforce.com’s AppExchange) or end user retention (think Facebook).
OAuth puts the user in control of delegating access to an API. This
allows one service to integrate with another service on behalf of that user. The same social Web providers who popularized the pattern of exposing an API to enable third-party developers to enrich their platforms were the first ones to apply such delegated authorization mechanisms. OAuth was defined in 2006, to standardize mechanisms of this kind.
Every enterprise has a wide variety of IT requirements where integration is needed. The rapid proliferation and adoption of cloud and mobile technologies has accentuated the financial impact of these needs. In response, the integration space has matured to include feature-rich stacks from enterprise integration vendors that provide full, multi-layer platforms in the form of an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) or SOA suite. But with these very broad capabilities comes complexity—multi-layer stacks can be difficult and costly to install, debug, administer and secure.
In time, containers will be the means by which all workloads are deployed on server platforms. It makes too much sense. Constructing fake machines around virtual workloads, just to make them portable across servers, was not the architecturally rational thing to do. It was the expedient thing to do, because cloud platforms had not yet evolved to where they needed to be.
This book presents a snapshot of the emerging approaches to container monitoring and distributed systems management that engineers and their customers are building together.
Modern solutions like CA PPM continue to raise the bar above last-generation IT demand management tools, continuously providing new features to ease the burden of the PMO, the financial manager, the resource manager and the product manager.
In the last few years, new vendors looking to exploit the large and increasingly influential project and portfolio management (PPM) market have developed modules that “snap” into their SaaS platforms. These vendors claim their tools are easy to install, easy to manage and save customers money. It sounds too good to be true. And for most organizations, it is.
Carefully consider whether you need a PPM solution that is only capable of providing low-level functionality for the project manager, or if your organization could benefit from PPM technology that provides 360-degree optics across your organization, delivers actionable business intelligence and enables extensive modeling and forecasting capabilities to make data-driven business decisions.
CA Workload Automation brings a central point of control and visibility to help assure efficient, reliable and secure business process management. It enables business workload design across platforms and operating systems, offering advanced monitoring and automated responses to changes and exceptions.

The risk and downtime of server migration have locked many IT teams into platforms that are no longer ideal. Migrations are often delayed or avoided—whether it’s moving data to the cloud or back on premises, or upgrading the hardware of the database software. This results in lost opportunities, unnecessary costs, and a lack of agility that today’s IT teams can no longer afford.
Carbonite Move Powered by DoubleTake quickly and easily migrates physical, virtual, and cloud workloads over any distance with minimal risk and near-zero downtime. Using efficient real-time, byte-level replication technology, Carbonite Move creates a replica of the data, application, database, or entire server being migrated and keeps it in sync with the production system. The migrated data can be validated without disrupting business operations, and downtime is limited to the seconds or minutes required for cutover to the new server.
