IT Brief – Sara Barker– 8/17/17
Earlier this year software giant CA Technologies completed its €600 million (NZD $965.7 million) transaction which saw business and IT automation provider Automic become part of its portfolio.
Jason Pope, CA Technologies A/NZ chief technology officer and Matty Kaffeman, VP of the Automic business unit for Asia Pacific and Japan, speak exclusively to IT Brief about how the acquisition fits into CA Technologies’ plans, what partners and customers should expect, and the company’s latest announcement that brings continuous delivery for SAP environments.
Kaffeman explains that Automic is an automation platform which provides capabilities around workload automation, release automation and service orchestration. The company launched 30 years ago in Austria and has grown to become a global player in IT automation with 2700 customers worldwide, including Netflix, LinkedIn and Konica Minolta.
Last week Automic held its Automic Live event in Sydney. Kaffeman says that when talking with customers and prospective clients, automation was a key discussion topic.
