CA to Hold Workload Automation Summit

ISLANDIA, N.Y., Dec. 4 -- CA today announced its first Workload Automation Technical Summit, to be held Jan. 27-30 in New Orleans. The Summit will offer IT professionals a unique opportunity to learn about best practices and leading-edge technologies that optimize the performance and availability of critical business services -- while also increasing the efficiency of datacenter operations.

The two-and-a-half day event will feature in-depth technical training and hands-on product demonstrations. Issues such as service-oriented design, dynamic workload orchestration and application service automation will be covered in depth. CA CTO Al Nugent and Andi Mann, research director at Enterprise Management Associates, will deliver keynote addresses.

Back-end processing workloads continue to escalate, but limited budgets, rising utility costs, insufficient physical space and other operational challenges often make it difficult to accommodate those workloads. Datacenter managers are responding by adopting new workload automation practices and technologies -- such as policy-based re-allocation of virtual server resources -- that make them more efficient and responsive to shifts in demand. CAs portfolio of workload automation solutions support the companys broader Data Center Automation strategy by empowering customers to derive maximum business value from their investments in IT infrastructure and personnel.

Enterprise datacenter managers are under tremendous pressure to deliver more business value despite very firm and problematic resource constraints, said Will Bauman, senior vice president of workload automation at CA. By bringing together industry analysts, corporate practitioners, and technology experts to share their insights, CA is creating a high-value event that will help attendees better address this critical IT issue.

Leading IT solutions and services providers -- including Business Objects, DG Technologies, Infusient, MVS Solutions Inc., Robert Mark Technologies, Terma Software Labs, UCA Services Inc. and USA Consulting -- will exhibit at the summit.
