As customers become more aware of the impact of IT on the environment and IT’s use of limited natural resources, they are increasingly looking for solutions that are more resource-efficient. In the context of software solutions, “sustainability” largely refers to solutions that have been designed and built to minimize the consumption of resources such as energy during development, operations and maintenance. At CA Technologies, we work to maximize opportunities for our customers’ IT operations by providing them with an efficient platform that limits resource use.
Our product design strives for sustainability in all respects. For example, to reduce paper consumption, all of our solutions default to electronic documentation. To reduce our customers’ electricity consumption, we require algorithms to be written efficiently and all idle time to be minimized. In this way, we aim to ensure that our products make efficient use of physical resources, such as materials and energy, throughout their life cycles.
