This year, CA is featuring three symposia designed specifically for different types of event attendees:

* The Business Management Symposium will address the strategic issue of leveraging IT for greatest business value, which confronts CIOs and senior IT executives.
* The IT Management Symposium will address the productivity and optimization challenges facing VPs, directors, and senior managers.
* The Channel Partner Symposium will address the market penetration and profitability objectives of resellers, integrators, and other business partners.

Attendees also will have access at no additional charge to hundreds of hands-on labs, education courses, technical “campgrounds”, and solution-specific user group meetings. A state-of-the-art exhibition center will showcase hundreds of exhibits and demonstrations from CA and strategic business partners.

“CA World offers a unique opportunity to network with the best and brightest IT management leaders from across the industry,” said Don Friedman, CA’s chief marketing officer. “This year’s event will provide unprecedented insight into how enterprise IT organizations can redefine their value to the business, delivering greater efficiency and supporting new innovation and growth opportunities.”
