CA Technologies Named a Worldwide Cloud Systems Management Software Market Share Leader by Market Research Firm

ISLANDIA, N.Y., December 12, 2011 – CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced it has been named one of the top two market share leaders in the worldwide cloud systems management software market by IDC, a leading provider of global IT research and advice.

According to the Worldwide Cloud Systems Management Software 2011-2015 Forecast Update and 2010 Vendor Shares* market analysis report, CA Technologies owns 14.7 percent of the market (based on 2010 estimated revenues) and is less than a half percentage point away from taking the overall lead in this important emerging segment.

“There is a very tight race among the top three vendors in this market; together they command nearly 44 percent of the total market,” said Mary Johnston Turner, Research Vice President, Enterprise System Management Software at IDC. “This is still a fairly nascent market that IDC expects will experience rapid growth through 2015, by which time cloud systems management software capabilities will be on the must-have list for enterprise and service provider customers alike.”

IDC’s definition of the cloud systems management software market spans a range of systems management monitoring, control, optimization and analytic functionality to the extent it is deployed into an automated, self-serve, consumption-aware public or private cloud operations environment.  

CA Technologies market share includes revenues from its Nimsoft, CA AppLogic® software and CA Business Service Insight offerings, as well as Service Automation products implemented in cloud environments. This IDC report does not include additional revenue related to cloud management from the company’s Security, Storage Management, Energy and Sustainability Management, Project and Portfolio Management, or Application Modeling portfolios, as well as portions of its Service Assurance and SaaS-delivered solutions that fall outside IDC’s systems management software taxonomy.

“Since early 2010, CA Technologies has been committed to helping customers transition from managing IT to delivering business services with the help of cloud computing,” said Adam Famularo, general manager, Enterprise and Cloud Solutions, CA Technologies. “Recognition by IDC as a cloud systems management market share leader validates our position and further supports the progress we’ve made to help our customers advance in the cloud.”
