Administrators no longer have to adapt to a new and different user interface with every application. The look and feel of CA Chorus is the same regardless of whether you are a data base administrator, security administrator or storage manager.With its ease of use, CA Chorus brings tremendous flexibility to an IT workforce that is in transition, whether an organization is asking its IT staff to extend its skillset or dealing with pioneer mainframers retiring and leaving the workforce. Primerica, Inc., a leading distributor of financial products in North America, faced this workforce issue and turned to CA Chorus for the answer. "We needed to address the challenge of introducing a new generation of IT workers to the mainframe environment,” said David Wade, Primerica CIO. “CA Chorus delivered the GUI-oriented navigation and functionality for system monitoring and troubleshooting that we were looking for.” CA Technologies also announced CA Cross-Enterprise Application Performance Management 3.0 (CA CE APM), which helps IT administrators achieve greater reliability for mainframe applications, so companies can take steps to avoid costly outages of applications due to poor performance. CA CE APM 3.0 allows non application-centric employees to identify and isolate performance problems more quickly by monitoring health metrics of critical application components. The new version offers enhanced dashboards and reduced time-to-value with alerting, which was previously configured on the mainframe, now automatically delivered to the APM dashboards. "This announcement exhibits the value CA Technologies brings to our joint customers. Our comprehensive enterprise solution for cross-platform infrastructure management is significantly enhanced,” said David Mavashev, CEO of Nastel Technologies, a global provider of AutoPilot® for middleware management and partner of CA Technologies. In addition, CA Technologies today announced new versions of solutions that expand customers’ use of resources and improve performance: CA Database Management for DB2 V17, which offers enhanced exploitation of DB2 10 and CA Database Management for IMS V16, which offers expanded support for IMS 13. “CA Technologies is a very important vendor to us. The ease and simplicity of managing database performance with CA Database Management for DB2 for z/OS across the enterprise has improved the performance of our staff by nearly 40 percent,” said Roy Brickley, director of IT Infrastructure for APL, a global container shipping business. “This improvement in performance has enabled us to optimize the focus of our resources, allowing us to deliver a 30 percent service level agreement improvement to our customers.”
