CA Technologies Named a 2011 Laureate by IDG’s Computerworld Honors Program

Company Recognized for Participation in TM Forum’s Secure, Federated Service Management Catalyst Project

ISLANDIA, N.Y., June 20, 2011 – CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) has been recognized by The Computerworld Honors Program as a 2011 Laureate for its participation in TM Forum’s Secure, Federated Service Management Catalyst project. The TM Forum Catalyst project is one of 262 Laureates that will be honored today during the 23rd Annual Laureates Medal Ceremony & Gala Awards Evening at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington D.C.

Selected from more than 1,000 entries, the Catalyst project, developed by members of the TM Forum’s Defense Interest Group, defines a blueprint for the rapid rollout of critical communications services across a federation of multi-national partners and stakeholders. The goal is to prepare for the rapid deployment of reliable communications infrastructure in disaster situations.

CA Technologies worked with the Catalyst team on phase three of the project entitled “Rapid Communications Deployment - Federated Service Level Management to Support Multi-National Preparedness in Crisis,” which provides knowledge and expertise on managing and securing defense networks. The Catalyst team utilized CA Technologies Service Assurance solutions, including Infrastructure Management for real time analysis of communications infrastructure traffic, and Service Operations Management for real time insight into communications infrastructure service quality and performance.

“This project, championed by NATO, was a tremendous platform for demonstrating how our Service Assurance solutions can manage a complex scenario,” said Bill Ahlstrom, vice president, CA Technologies, and the company’s liaison to TM Forum. “We showed the ability to integrate many different technologies and deploy policies straight to the endpoint, while preserving a real-time service level overview over the total solution.”

About TM Forum’s Secure, Federated Service Management Catalyst

Rapid Communications Deployment – Federated Service Level Management to Support Multi-National Preparedness in Crisis is a series of multi-vendor technology demonstration projects developed by members of the TM Forum’s Defense Interest Group. The initial phases, completed in 2010, served as proof of technical concepts such as dynamic discovery of services and creation of complex service value, secured information exchange across the coalition partners on a multi-lateral basis, and automated end-to-end service management. Phase III, which was demonstrated at TM Forum’s Management World in Dublin in May 2011, significantly extended the demonstration scope, hardened the architecture, and produced a Best Practice Guide (Architectural Blueprint) for Federated SLA Management.
