Committed to Intelligent Automation for the Modern Software Factory
According to research by IDC and Forrester, CA Technologies is amongst the top global providers of both Workload Automation and Continuous Delivery and Release Automation. In September 2017 CA Technologies was recognized as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Release Automation.4
Today’s announcement of the new platform is part of CA Technologies’ ongoing commitment to enabling intelligent automation for the enterprise. Aligned with bringing the Modern Software Factory to life for accelerated business transformation, CA Technologies brings together the full line of automation products from across the company, including Automic, to empower modern application delivery.
“The speed of change in the DevOps/Agile space is driving greater needs for seamless control across the whole process from business needs through development and test to operations. Release automation now has to have additional intelligence around areas such as orchestration, as well as having the capacity to embrace multi- and hybrid-cloud architectures without the user having to overly concern themselves around the actual physical aspects of the platform. Organizations should be looking for systems that not only meet their requirements now, but where the vendor can already provide pointers as to how the system will support changing requirements in the future. With such a dynamic pace of change, any need to reverse out from a solution chosen now to a new solution down the line due to a lack of flexibility on the part of the vendor could be disaster for an organization.” – Clive Longbottom, analyst and founder, Quocirca.
“CA Technologies has aligned its DevOps and application release automation tooling with Automic Release Automation (RA) at its center. CA Automic’s business process approach is designed for the larger enterprises with heavy-duty release requirements and has excellent support for new development paradigms such as containerization.” – Michael Azoff, principal analyst, Ovum.
CA Automic Workload Automation V12.1, CA Automic Release Automation V12.1 and CA Automic Service Orchestration V12.1 as part of the CA Automic One Automation Platform are immediately available for general shipment. All plugins are immediately available on the Automic Marketplace. Pricing is on demand for non-CA Automic customers.
