CA Technologies CEO Mike Gregoire said all companies will be built for a software driven future in the Application Economy and challenged technology and business leaders to move quickly.
Gregoire said the dynamics of the Application Economy and the important changes that enterprises must plan for to drive their continued success.
"The Application Economy is tearing down old notions; breaking apart yesterday’s models; reshaping the landscape. In every market and in every industry, customers are looking at their business in new ways: leveraging the power of software to reinvent, create advantage, and drive growth. We now live in a world where customers are no longer just loyal to the brand or product or service. Instead, they are loyal to the complete experience a brand delivers. And that experience is delivered by software. Software is the business. We are on the verge of a shift. Not a gentle evolution but a fundamental transformation of business, of society and life."
Naming three imperatives businesses must address Gregiore said "Customers need to innovate. Fast. They need to deliver new applications — from design to launch — rapidly, seamlessly, and predictably. Not in weeks or months — but sometimes in days, and increasingly…in hours."
He promised that CA would build a lead in DevOps with a balance of innovation and execution. ‘Without the need to sacrifice quality or efficiency.’
Identity-based Security from end point through API to data wasn’t ‘about keeping people out. It’s about providing the right access to the right users, at the right time, with the least amount of friction’
CA is announcing API Management and Security solutions: "…we live in a development world driven increasingly by APIs. These are the building blocks of an Application Economy. You have to manage them, open new development environments, and attract a community of developers. We are announcing new API offerings that allow you to open your Enterprise to the Internet of Things. To meet customer demand. Innovate with confidence. Monetize with speed."
"Third, managing the enormous growth of your IT environment. We built the Management Cloud to transform this complexity into business opportunity. To help you take control of this environment. Tomorrow – it will expand with such velocity that it threatens the integrity of your business."
Gregoire was speaking at CA World which runs this week in Las Vegas.
