C-level briefing: Martin Ashall, CTO CA Technologies UK&I talks EU tech barriers, disruptive trends and CTOs challenges.
1. CA Technologies unique in the technological race
"The main difference that I see is that the UK tends to be a little bit ahead of Europe because culturally it is closer to the US than, perhaps, other parts of Europe. I do feel, in a lot of scenarios, we are sort of on that leading edge."
2. Britain at the leading edge
"A lot of the requirements come from the EU instead of local governments. In-country governments is where we are seeing the tighter requirements coming from.
"I worked with colleagues in France and Germany, and they are facing similar challenges that are very much specific to what in-country governments are demanding in terms of security requirements."
3. A new age of mankind
"We are heading to a new age. It kind of starts when we look at the IoT."
"The next big disruptive trend hitting our industry is big data."
4. Data centres as a key driver
"there will be specific data requirements for the hosting of that data and providing that service. In those scenarios we tend to work with partners that have some specialism in that area to provide that capability."
