At CA Technologies, we believe that tomorrow’s successful companies will be Built to Change, operating within a new paradigm in which software is central to everything they do. Against a backdrop of constant disruption, a business that’s Built to Change conforms with the new digital reality—a reality where a company’s brand is defined by digital experiences, and where customers are more likely to experience a brand through a software app than a person.
Built to Change companies embrace the concept of business agility, meaning the ability to automatically sense, react and adapt quickly to shifting market dynamics. Focusing on agility enables them to drive rapid, continuous improvement in customer experience to remain relevant in a marketplace characterized not only by fierce competition, but also by environmental and social challenges.
The software we provide also drives agility for our customers by enabling them to easily optimize resources, minimize unnecessary expenditures and reduce energy use. These kinds of software solutions have contributed to our own reductions in energy use, helping us to achieve our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction target five years ahead of our 2020 goal, and reducing our overall carbon footprint by approximately 37 percent since 2006.
Along with new opportunities, the Built to Change world brings new challenges. That’s why we develop solutions that help companies move into the next era, where software becomes more innovative and important than ever before. These solutions range from enhanced identity and access management to protect users’ information, to predictive analytics that improve customer insights.
To help provide the technology leaders who are at the center of every company’s future, we’re working with other organizations, governments and NGOs to address the gap in science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM, skills. This includes the Tech Girls Rock initiative we created with Boys & Girls Clubs of America and CA’s support of the European Commission’s Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition through our Create Tomorrow program.
