News: CEO Mike Gregoire says software creates completely new business models.
The correct use of software to identify waves of innovation is vital for businesses to stay relevant.
Speaking at CA World 2015, Mike Gregoire, CEO, CA Technologies, said: "You have to catch the wave when it hits – or risk being left behind. The window of opportunity to surf the wave is getting shorter."
Gregoire identified software as an ‘organising principle’ with the ability to become a, "lever to innovate and grow."
Gregoire, said: "Software allows scale, reduces friction, adds speed. Software creates completely new business models."
The company has placed agile development at the centre of success, both for developers and business, with the CA Technologies boss identifying it at as being central to digital transformation.
Looking forward, the CEO identified the company’s focus on delivering products, something that could be helped by the hiring of Otto Berkes as CTO from HBO, and Ayman Sayed as Chief Product Officer from Cisco.
With this in mind, the company unveiled products and enhancements, but Gregoire said the company isn’t done there.
"I’m incredibly proud of our progress, but we are not satisfied. We are committed to raising our game. There is no finish line in customer service."
