Offers pre-designed workflows for automated, self-service delivery of virtual and physical infrastructure and application services
IT management software and offerings company CA Technologies has introduced new agile cloud offerings that deliver business services across public, private or hybrid clouds.
These offerings provide the basis for customers to drive business services from the planning and model stage to deployment and operations, including automation, security and service assurance needed to achieve business agility, said the company.
CA Technologies new cloud offerings provide the foundation for a business service platform to help customers leverage the advantages of cloud computing for impactful business services.
The cloud offerings include: CA Cloud 360; Cloud Commons Ecosystem; CA Automation Suite for Clouds; CA Application Performance Management; and CA CloudMinder.
CA Cloud 360 provides enterprises with a prescriptive approach to help validate and select the applications and business services that are best suited for private, public and hybrid clouds.
The Cloud Commons ecosystem is enhanced by rolling out the new Cloud Commons Marketplace and Developer Studio. The Cloud Commons Marketplace unites buyers and sellers of cloud offerings and services and allows them to compare, procure, manage, and sell ongoing subscription-based cloud offerings, services and content.
CA Automation Suite for Clouds offers pre-designed workflows for automated, self-service delivery of virtual and physical infrastructure and application services, while supporting fixed or usage-based pricing with a billing and financial reporting engine.
CA Application Performance Management helps eliminate hybrid-cloud infrastructure blind spots to put customers firmly in control of the end-user experience and empowers customers to rapidly isolate, diagnose and resolve problems across technology silos, said the company.
To deliver key capabilities for increasing security and improving operational efficiencies while providing all the benefits of a cloud deployment model, CA CloudMinder family now comes with two new identity and access management (IAM) cloud offerings: CA IdentityMinder as-a-Service and CA FedMinder as-a-Service.
CA Technologies Customer Solutions Group executive vice-president and group executive David Dobson said organisations are choosing private and public cloud infrastructures to deliver the agility needed for competitive advantage.
"Our portfolio of solutions helps simplify this complexity and provides a path to move from IT rationalisation and optimisation, to business service innovation and growth," Dobson.
