CA Technologies calls upon CIOs to use the power of software to innovate and win in the Application Economy

As a sponsor at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2016 taking place in Barcelona, CA’s digital transformation experts will share with delegates best practices and technologies to accelerate innovation and deliver top quality user experience

Morges, Switzerland, 19 October 2016 – At the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2016 in Barcelona, CA Technologies (NASDAQ:CA), a global leader in software solutions and Silver sponsor of the event, will invite attending CIOs and senior IT executives to meet the Company digital transformation experts to explore and discuss about best practices and technologies that will help them accelerate their digital transformation journey, fueled by software.

In the application economy, organisations are placing software at the heart of their business to accelerate innovation and time to market, and deliver the highly secure and exceptional user experience customers demand.  

This year’s event theme, Lead 360. Drive Digital to the Core, will help CIOs and Senior IT Executives attending the event to see further, explore deeper and discover how to make digital a core competence for them and their organization.  

With the theme “Racing to Win”, the CA Technologies stand will become a knowledge meeting point where CA digital transformation experts will share with delegates their knowledge and experience on how software can improve business agility, develop and deliver quality applications and services faster, manage and secure APIs, or protect users and data with identity centric-security based on context and behaviour.

“In today’s application economy, all companies are in the software business. Software has become a powerful key player in the digital race to win more customers and new revenues,” says Anders Törnqvist, General Manager, EMEA Northern region at CA Technologies. “We see every day how our customers’ digital transformation is underway and is contributing to their bottom line, but many enterprises in EMEA still have a way to go on their digital transformation journey. We are pleased to share with GartnerITxpo delegates our experience and knowledge on software and technology practices that underpin digital transformation and have proved to be successful with our customers to speed up innovation and business performance in the new digital order.”

The recent study “Keeping Score: Why Digital Transformation Matters” conducted by Coleman Parkes for CA Technologies reveals that digital transformation helps drive growth for organisations in EMEA. Surveyed IT and business executives report their companies have experienced 35 percent growth in new revenue and more than two-thirds see an improved customer experience. 

According to the study, organisations in EMEA using modern technology and practices to transform one or more key aspects of their business achieve 35 percent growth in new revenue and a 44 percent increase in speed to market, while 69 percent report an improvement in customer experience. The advanced adoption of approaches such as agile, DevOps, application programming interface (API) management, and identity-centric security also boosts business impact of digital transformation by up to 37 percent.
