CA Named Worldwide Market Share Leader for 2007 in Asset Management, Job Scheduling by Leading Analyst Firm


The Sixth Consecutive Year as Worldwide Market Leader in IT Asset Management and Third Consecutive Year in Job Scheduling*

ISLANDIA, N.Y., June 2008 – CA (NASDAQ: CA) today announced that it is the worldwide market-leading vendor in asset management and job scheduling based on total software revenue, according to Gartner, Inc.’s “Market Share: IT Operations Management, Worldwide, 2007”* report. The report marks the sixth consecutive year that CA has been ranked as the overall worldwide market leader in IT asset management and the third consecutive year in job scheduling.*

CA’s share of the asset management software and job scheduling software markets continues to grow. In 2007, CA attained 18.2 percent of the $413 million market, an increase of 8.3 percent over 2006. The company’s job scheduling software achieved 33.8 percent market share of the $1.023 billion market, an increase of 15.1 percent over 2006.*

“Because the demands being placed on IT by the business continue to escalate at a pace that far exceeds IT’s ability to add capacity, our customers are aggressively striving to use existing resources more efficiently and take costs out of service delivery—while optimizing service levels and rigorously maintaining compliance,” said Don LeClair, senior vice president for CA technology strategy. “We believe Gartner’s Market Share report reaffirms that CA is uniquely addressing these critical IT management issues by delivering the world’s leading solutions for job and asset management, which are essential for wresting maximum value from investments in hardware and software.”

CA’s IT Asset Management solution facilitates best practices, physical, financial and contractual management of IT assets across their entire lifecycle—including planning, requisition, utilization and retirement. It also integrates with CA’s Service Management and Project and Portfolio Management solutions to help IT organizations achieve operational excellence across management disciplines.

In an increasingly complex business process environment, IT administrators must effectively manage a wide range of event-, policy- and schedule-driven computing activities throughout the enterprise. Companies are increasingly turning to CA’s Workload Automation solution to automate the scheduling and deployment of workloads across mainframe and distributed systems.
