Top IT Professionals Vote CA “Best” for Ninth Straight PPM Summit


CA Wins Most Awards and Garners Most Nominations at 2008 Project & Portfolio Management Summit; Voted “Best Solution” and “Best Presentation”

ISLANDIA, N.Y., June 2008 – CA (NASDAQ: CA) today announced that its CA Clarity Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) application was voted “Best Solution: PPM Technology” by the IT professionals attending the 2008 PPM Summit that took place last week in Orlando, Florida. CA received the most nominations, was the only vendor named a finalist in all four categories, and took home the most awards, including the prestigious “Best Solution” and “Best Presentation.”

The Project & Portfolio Management Innovation™ Awards are significant because they are voted on by a group of over 175 attending senior IT executives and CIOs who hear from the 17 leading PPM vendors during a series of boardroom presentations over a two-day period. The awards distinguish technology and service providers for the quality of their solutions and programs, the level of service and support, and exceptional design and delivery of presentations.

“This year’s accolades, including Best Solution, mark twenty-one awards for CA since the inception of the PPM Summit in 2004, and highlight our focus on the demands of large and global organizations that seek better decision making and governance across their enterprise,” said Carl Landers, vice president of marketing for CA Clarity PPM. “This year’s theme at the PPM Summit—’Steady IT Effectiveness in Unsteady Times’—was appropriate since CA Clarity PPM allows CIOs to increase their organization’s productivity by aiding in the prioritization of IT investment decisions.”

Attending IT decision makers also heard from MGM MIRAGE, a CA Clarity PPM customer, about its successful implementation. “After a multi-billion dollar merger created MGM MIRAGE, we wanted a more sophisticated approach to governance that would enable us to maximize our IT resources for the new organization,” said Myrna Soto, vice president of IT Governance and Chief Information Security Officer, MGM MIRAGE. “As a result of working with CA as one of our technology partners, and standardizing on CA Clarity PPM within our IT PMO, our organization now has a central view of all IT project information, real-time reporting for IT and management, and most importantly, better prioritization of resources to support our aggressive plans for growth. The continued success of CA in winning these awards further validates that we made the right decision to partner with them in this area.”

The 2008 event marks the ninth consecutive PPM Summit in which attendees recognized CA as an award-winning vendor for its CA Clarity PPM solution. The industry-recognized event is held semi-annually in both North America and Europe. CA’s impressive record of success now includes:
