Introducing the CNN Politics app, built with CA software

Today, CNN launched the CNN Politics app, built in partnership with CA Technologies. The data-centric app gives American voters access to important election data and puts them on level footing with the experts when it comes to information for making decisions in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

As the No. 1 digital destination for political news, CNN is delivering election data, analysis and original content to voters wherever they are.

CA API Management software was used to efficiently build the app and give people access to numerous sources of election data, including CNN polling data, Federal Election Commission data and data from the Pivit Political Prediction Market.

Once the users select the data points of interest, they can review and draw their own conclusions based on the information and how the election is tracking.

CA App Experience Analytics provides CNN with information on app performance and app use to help deliver a great user experience.

Stories are stronger than raw data

The CNN Politics app underscores the fact that this is the “data election,” where unprecedented volumes of data are being used by political junkies, pundits and candidates to track the latest polling, delegate, voting and fundraising data.

With this app, all voters can access that critical data, putting them on level footing with the experts.

The functionality of the CNN Politics app is twofold. First, it puts election data and insight at voters’ fingertips, engaging them directly in the election process unlike any app before it.

Then it gauges app use to understand what articles are striking interest, how much time is spent with the app and how users navigate it to deliver a truly unique user experience.

The CNN Politics app is available now in the App Store. The app will continue to be updated throughout the 2016 election season with even more capabilities.

As part of the partnership, CA Technologies is a CNN America’s Choice 2016 Election sponsor and exclusive sponsor of the CNN Politics app.
