Innovation without borders: Creating a unified global tech community

The Council for Technical Excellence (CTE) is a virtual organization of the most influential thought leaders and innovators within the company, each of whom is committed to creating a vibrant technical community that is connected, collaborative and inspiring (as well as inspired). I am honored to be part of this community and serve as CTE President. Former CEO John Swainson founded the CTE in 2006 with only a handful of members, and it has grown to over 85 fully committed members. Our mission is to create unique opportunities for our diverse global technical community to form new relationships, drive change, collaborate and share knowledge across organizational boundaries to fuel innovation and growth.

This year we will be focusing on these initiatives:

Cross-organizational collaboration

The CTE is focused on breaking down the real and imagined barriers that exist between the various parts of the organization. For example, Special Interest Groups (SIGs) provide a highly accessible way for anyone inside CA Technologies, regardless of role or function, to unite around a shared interest in a critical technology area, and to collaboratively find ways to raise broader awareness across the technical community.

Knowledge sharing and education

The CTE sponsors activities such as technical articles published on CA Rewrite, where we are able to demonstrate thought leadership on critical disruptive technologies and trends. In addition, the CTE hosts weekly internal technical talks on topics such as emerging technologies, corporate strategy, products and tools, and innovations.

There are many exciting ways for CA technologists to get involved in CTE activities and connect to peers. We hope to share some of this content with customers and partners as well, so stay tuned.

Best regards,

Connie Smallwood
CTE President
VP, Innovation Programs
