During this 30-minute webcast, CA Technologies will show you how to dynamically deploy and scale IT services by leveraging internal private clouds while seamlessly integrating access to supplemental resources in public clouds.  Implementing this requires cost effectively “bursting” capacity-demand, ensuring consistent service operation, automating the provisioning of physical, virtual and cloud resources, and enabling your existing infrastructure to deliver cloud services.

To fully capitalize on the promise of cloud computing, IT needs a well-defined methodology for exposing services in a standardized manner, accelerating delivery and managing demand — while monitoring, capturing and analyzing ongoing usage, cost and performance metrics.

CA Technologies cloud solutions provide automated self-service delivery of virtual and physical infrastructure as well as application services.  Pre-integrated content is designed to deliver standard use case workflows so you can get up and running quickly, and deliver rapid time-to-value.  To help accelerate the transition to automated service delivery, pre-integrated workflows that are designed specifically to support best practice IaaS use cases, are included out-of-the-box.  Included is service metering, billing and reporting capabilities so you can easily associate direct and indirect costs to your services and provide cost transparency while aligning to your budgets and fiscal periods.  A native billing engine will automatically calculate and invoice the consumption of cloud services for any size organization.  A cloud solution requires compliance management and the requisite ability to discover and configure systems, services and application.
