CA Named Global Market Share Leader in Job Scheduling Software


CA Workload Automation Solution Captures Nearly 20 Percent of $1.5 Billion Market

ISLANDIA, N.Y. – CA (NASDAQ: CA) today announced it has been recognized as the worldwide market share leader in job scheduling software by analyst firm IDC. According to the IDC report, “Worldwide System Operations Software 2007 Vendor Shares” (IDC #215303, December 2008), CA’s market share increased 10.9% year-over-year. The company now owns 19.6% of the $1.5 billion job scheduling software market.

According to the IDC report, “Job scheduling, which includes workload-balancing applications, will continue to experience healthy growth as a result of virtualization sprawl, and customer needs to improve resource utilization and application performance across virtualized infrastructure. Over time, IDC expects the line between job scheduling, workload management, virtualization, and datacenter automation to blur as these technologies converge.”

“Companies recognize CA Workload Automation as the premier solution for automating the scheduling and deployment of workloads across mainframe and distributed systems,” said Will Bauman, senior vice president and general manager of CA’s Workload Automation business unit. “As IT administrators increasingly leverage technologies such as virtualization, automation, SOA and Web services, they are turning to CA to help them transform job scheduling and workload automation from an IT operations aid to a dynamic, business-driven process.”

CA’s job scheduling software, including CA Workload Automation, CA Jobtrac Job Management, and CA Scheduler Job Management, 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.

CA Workload Automation can be used either standalone or integrated with other CA automation solutions, such as CA Data Center Automation Manager. The integration of CA Workload Automation and CA Data Center Automation Manager provides the ability to provision computing capacity to meet processing demands and to efficiently accommodate workload execution onto physical and virtualized environments. Customers can dynamically implement systems and processes to handle planned and unplanned workload and transaction bursts, ensuring Service Level Agreements (SLAs) are not breached.

CA (NASDAQ: CA) is the world’s leading independent IT management software company. With CA’s Enterprise IT Management (EITM) vision and expertise, organizations can more effectively govern, manage and secure IT to optimize business performance and sustain competitive advantage.
