The New York based software firm CA has announced a new partnership with IBM on Tuesday at CA's second annual built to Change summit. The move will help clients to innovate their IT structures. And under this partnership, the two firms will jointly build up and sell for IBM's Cloud Managed Services on z Systems (zCloud).
“CA and IBM have an opportunity to help our clients overcome challenges in rising costs of IT ownership, workforce evolution and security issues head-on,” said Greg Lotko, General Manager of Mainframe at CA Technologies.
The clients who use z Systems can leverage CA tools which will reduce costs, speed application use and integration.
The availability of the software and services will be rolled out around the globe throughout the year. Currently, the services are available in North America.
In addition, CA also announced a set of new solutions and capabilities spanning across its comprehensive enterprise software portfolio. The new leading-edge solutions will unleash the power of the "Mainframe" for the future and new possibilities for the "Modern Software Factory".
“To assist our clients, IBM introduced Cloud Managed Services on z Systems. IBM and CA are committed to deepening the platform's role in enterprise digital transformation,” added Philip Guido, General Manager of Infrastructure Services for IBM Global Technology Services.
