CA Clarity Wins for Best Solution, Best Vendor and Best Presentation

ISLANDIA, N.Y., December 12, 2006 – CA (NYSE: CA) today announced that it was voted “Best Solution, Best Vendor and Best Presentation” for its CA Clarity system at the 2006 Gartner Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) Summit Europe. This marks the third consecutive year that CA has won ’Best Solution’ and ’Best Vendor’ at Gartner’s event in Europe, and the sixth consecutive Gartner PPM Summit where CA Clarity has been recognized in at least one major category.

The awards recognize technology and service providers for their solutions, programs, service and support. Summit attendees, consisting of corporate IT decision-makers driving PPM adoption and implementation, voted for the awards during the event, held Nov. 29 - Dec. 1 in Geneva, Switzerland.

“These awards represent the educated and considered opinion of PPM practitioners, following two days of intensive vendor and analyst presentations—as well as technology demonstrations from every major competitor,” said Carl Landers, vice president of marketing for CA’s Clarity product line. “The fact that these executives chose CA across all three categories makes our success at this year’s PPM Summit particularly gratifying.”
