CA Wily Surpasses 1,000 Customer Mark


Report by The 451 Group Highlights the Application Performance Management Solution Provider’s Contributions to CA’s Success

ISLANDIA, N.Y., August 2008 – CA, Inc. (NASDAQ: CA) today announced that its CA Wily Technology division has surpassed 1,000 customers. Since being acquired by CA in March 2006, the application performance management (APM) solution provider has nearly doubled its customer base, adding more than 500 new customers and completing over 900 new transactions.

An August 11, 2008 report by The 451 Group, a technology industry analyst company focused on the business of enterprise IT innovation, spotlights this major milestone in describing CA Wily as “a healthy contributor to CA’s growth,” further remarking that CA Wily “remains a market leader in its space.” The report notes that CA Wily “has become a textbook example of how a large IT management framework vendor can effectively fill a gap in its offerings through acquisition.”

“Key to CA Wily’s success has been staying in tune with the market and expanding our APM solution to manage large, complex and highly distributed SOA environments,” said Chris Cook, general manager of CA Wily. “Customers such as Alltel, British Airways and Union Bank of California have responded well to our solution’s ability to help to ensure Web applications meet business and service level objectives, help to optimize their customers’ online experience and help to achieve application performance and availability goals.”

The 451 Group report also noted that “CA has also positioned its software for monitoring and managing virtualized environments and is tackling the telecommunications network operations space, winning some early—and large—deals there. Growing enterprise adoption of .NET technologies is also driving new business to CA’s Application Performance Management (APM) unit.”

CA Wily’s comprehensive approach to APM helps enterprises to more rapidly detect and diagnose application slowdowns and failures, better assess the impact of application performance on business success and better manage the end-user experience. CA Wily helps customers to achieve better customer service, more stable revenue streams, and higher IT productivity.
