CA Technologies automation solutions help organizations increase business productivity by simplifying the management of complex workloads and empowering development teams with self-service tools that accelerate the development and delivery of new and enhanced applications. CA Technologies commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) that enterprises may realize from automation. The purpose of this study is to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of CA on their organizations.
To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with CA workload automation (WLA) solutions, Forrester interviewed an existing customer with years of experience using CA. The organization that Forrester interviewed manufactures consumer electronics that it sells through retailers around the globe. Download this whitepaper to find out more.

Today's test data management (TDM) solutions force teams to work with compromised data sets, and push testing to too late in the software development lifecycle. The end result is rework, delayed releases, and costly bugs that cripple production systems. Furthermore, prevailing approaches to test data management - including subsetting, synthetic data, shared environments, and standalone masking--represent flawed solutions that fail across one or more key dimensions.
An integrated launch plan was just the start for helping to transform a research organization into a commercial entity. A successful commercial launch of an FDA-approved specialty drug included project management support to a cross-functional client team and development of a dashboard tool to track each function’s progress.

As IT becomes the cloud, and ever more central to business success, projects to transform the IT systems, and more specifically the data center, have become strategic and a competitive differentiator. A crucial piece of the data center transformation puzzle, and one which is too often left until the end, is the network. As the central nervous system of the data center, its transformation must be an integral part of the entire data center transformation project.

Supporting multiple internal clients and all of their requirements for testing and production networks in more than 1,000 cities around the world—these are the unrelenting challenges for the 12 brands that comprise eBay Classifieds Group. Activating new platforms and features can take a lot of time; with the Juniper solution, turnaround time has been reduced to a few hours—sometimes less—which helps eBay Classifieds turn innovation into a real competitive advantage every single day.
The broad adoption of the next generation of cloud, mobile, M2M, and big data applications is having profound impacts on IT and network infrastructures. Compared to traditional applications, these applications have much shorter life cycles. You must be able to spin them up, spin them down, and grow and shrink them on demand. Furthermore, you must be able to move these application workloads within a data center or across geographically distributed data centers, resulting in increased management complexities.
The primary purpose of containerized applications is to improve the effectiveness of software teams, making it easier for people to work together while lowering the communications overhead. In large enterprises, applications such as ERP or CRM software suites often begin as simple projects, but as time passes, they quickly become clunky and inefficient, with a monolithic code base that slows progress for development teams.
eBay Classifieds supports multiple internal clients and all of their requirements in more than 1,000 cities around the world.

If you work in IT, you can’t escape the buzz about containers. Containers are a lightweight way of building and deploying applications as a set of composable microservices that abstract away the underlying infrastructure.
As containers and microservices become more mainstream, you need to understand the path to adoption, and which tools come into play.
Download this guide to get an introduction to containers, explore their value, and see how configuration management applies to containers. We also discuss how to:
• Adopt and scale containers faster.
• Move existing services to containers.
• Eliminate the friction between development, QA, and production environments.
CA has reevaluated the design methodology behind its PPM tool to deliver an end-user-driven solution that better reflects the goals and motivations of the entire team, helps to ensure project confidence and removes the stress associated with the possibility of project failure.
At the core of this new design methodology is our proprietary research, which unquestionably points to the need for an outcome-driven approach to innovation, chiefly concerned with understanding and measuring the customer’s success criteria.
Several years into the app economy, business has changed. Accelerating product cycles and competitive threats now demand continuous planning. Change is constant and managing it is more important than ever. As a result, companies that for years have taken a traditional approach to managing initiatives are moving rapidly to implement agile business practices. And they’re seeing results, in the form of improved quality, faster delivery of value, reduced development costs and increased customer satisfaction.
But this transition also creates new challenges and responsibilities for the project management office (PMO). In fact, the success of the transformation often hinges on the PMO’s ability to expand the underlying concepts of the agile development methodology into a companywide ethos¬—a concept known as business agility.
