Customers’ Key Enterprise IT Management Requirements

ISLANDIA, N.Y.– CA (NYSE: CA) today announced that it was the 2006 worldwide market share leader in two important segments of the $11.4 billion IT operations management market—job scheduling and asset management—according to a Gartner, Inc. report entitled “Market Share: IT Operations Management Software, Worldwide, 2006.”*

CA’s market share was 33.6 percent in job scheduling, a 3.6 percent increase over 2005, and 19.2 percent in asset management for major vendors based on total software revenue.* The report marks the fifth consecutive year that CA has been ranked as the overall worldwide market leader in IT asset management and the second consecutive year in job scheduling.* Gartner estimates that the value of the overall IT operations management market grew 11.4 percent over 2005.*

According to Gartner, strong continued growth “indicates that the ITOM market is still attracting considerable interest from end-user organizations. The various technologies belonging to this market are generally seen as providing a good return on investment because they help optimize the existing IT infrastructure and, as a result, provide lower costs for IT operations, improved quality of service and reduced business risk.”*

CA’s job scheduling software provides the foundation for event-driven automation that aligns workload execution with business policies, optimizes service levels, and boosts operational productivity. Job scheduling is a core component of CA Workload Automation, an integrated set of tools that enable IT organizations to improve control over the dynamic execution of workloads required by today’s complex business processes.

According to Gartner, “the ITOM market is operating in an environment in which IT professionals are being pressured to keep up with the fast rate of change affecting organizations while paying greater attention to costs.”*
