We make your ideas real
To succeed in this age of digital transformation, you have to dream big. Challenge convention. Push the boundaries of technology. But just having groundbreaking ideas isn’t enough. You need to make them real. At CA, our sole purpose is to remove the obstacles our customers face every day. It’s what we do and what drives us as a company.
Beyond world-class solutions, we provide expert guidance, advice and partnership that creates immediate and lasting business value.
What makes CA unique
What makes CA unique in our ability to help customers is more than the sum of our experience and expertise—it’s how we view the world, who we are, how we live and how we work. In fulfilling our mission, it’s not just what we do that matters. It’s what we believe.
“When I look at players who are able to jump in and move to a different spot, or cover a different role, or take on a task that there is nobody available to do, that's just a super resource to have and really brings the team together.” - Lauren Holmes, SVP, Business Unit CIO
“One of the key things that our team does is listen, build the right enablement material for the right partners so that they have that confidence to deliver that exceptional customer experience.” - Mike Durkin, VP, Global Partner Technical Solutions
“Whenever challenges come up, we all band together and we figure out the right solution. It’s just what we do.” - Katherine Demacopoulos, VP, Corporate Marketing
Practical Magic: Innovation that moves business
The application economy has forever changed the role of technology in business. To compete today, every company needs to be a software company. That means fostering innovation that delivers real business outcomes and balancing raw ideas with customer demand. It’s time to embrace digital transformation—and make amazing things happen.
We’ve entered a world where the digital experience you deliver is your brand. Functionality was once the prime technology metric, but now a continuously evolving, user-centric experience is paramount. Instead of building relatively static line-of-business applications, you need to deliver live, always-on software services.
Though traditional IT has served business effectively for decades, it’s not equipped for this new job description. Asking IT to operate in a dramatically different capacity might be unfair, but that’s precisely what is happening in many organizations today. No wonder IT falls short, seems less than strategic and struggles to deliver. How do organizations today transform for the digital age? By building a new operating model that includes technology—specifically software—as a core pillar of the business itself.
