Stefanini Extends CA Technologies Partnership in North America with Mainframe Offerings

The new commitment is based on successful engagements in Latin America and EMEA

Southfield, MI, August 18, 2016 – Stefanini, a $1B global IT provider, today announced that it has extended its partnership with CA Technologies in North America. As part of this effort, the company will be implementing CA’s mainframe offerings to improve efficiencies and drive cost savings in customer environments. This extended commitment is based on successful partnership engagements with CA in Latin America and EMEA.

As part of its consulting services, Stefanini offers customers a Mainframe Cost Optimization and Rationalization program. Through the rationalization, Stefanini evaluates customers’ software stack and provides guidance on how to more efficiently use CA’s mainframe solutions for greater cost savings.

This comprehensive program designed by CA Technologies and delivered by Stefanini focuses on three significant CIO Key Performance Indicators: run-rate, scale, and throughput. The objective is to help customers streamline their software portfolio by automatically cataloging existing software assets and usage, mapping IT resources against business needs, defining a desired future-state, and creating a plan to reach that outcome.

“We are excited to partner with CA Technologies to drive value for our customers,” said Beth Gebrai, Vice President of Strategic Alliances and Innovation at Stefanini. “Together with CA Technologies, we will address the complex Mainframe IT environment and leverage our current investments to drive efficiencies and uncover opportunities for additional automation and integration within the overall IT ecosystem.”

Partnering to provide the best Mainframe solution

The program follows a multi-step collaborative process beginning with the discovery and analysis of a client’s environment, followed by validation, planning, and proposal stages, and culminating with a pricing and rationalization execution strategy designed to reduce risk and ensure continuous governance.

Stefanini’s key Mainframe offerings that complement the Software Rationalization include staff augmentation, assessment, development, maintenance and support, modernization, optimization, migration, and testing.

“One of the benefits customers will see is improvements in the efficiency of daily operations,” said Ms. Gebrai, “but also in agility, by freeing resources and creating a budget for strategic projects that drive business value.”

According to Gebrai, the program has been rolled out to several customers and the typical Software Rationalization demonstrates a 24 percent reduction in solutions and a 14 percent reduction in vendor footprint. “On average, we assist in the achievement of a $1M to $2M reduction in annual OPEX spending,” affirmed Ms. Gebrai.

“This reseller agreement extends the partnership with Stefanini into North America and is the result of successful engagements with them in Latin America and in EMEA,” stated Tony Jennings, vice president, North America Global Partner Organization, CA Technologies. “As CA continues to invest in the mainframe, we look forward to working with Stefanini to optimize customers’ IT investments to unleash the value delivered by our mainframe portfolio of solutions.”
