Sydney, 22 March 2018 – Gartner, Inc. has named CA Technologies (NASDAQ:CA) a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring Suites *. CA Technologies offers CA Digital Experience Insights, a monitoring and AIOps platform that includes integrated services for application performance management, and user experience and infrastructure monitoring.
“We believe the recognition is validation of our strong vision and delivery of a full-stack AIOps solution that addresses the need of every modern software factory to continuously deliver amazing app experiences, especially in today’s digital economy,” said Abhilash Purushothaman, head of DevOps, Asia Pacific and Japan, CA Technologies. “Using artificial intelligence and machine learning, CA Digital Experience Insights uses an open AIOps architecture that helps businesses understand how each link in the complex mix of endpoints, shared resources and hybrid environments impacts user experience, giving organizations a deeper understanding of their customers’ complete digital experience.”
According to Gartner, “For most enterprises, APM is now seen an essential element of application-centric IT operations and a DevOps-enabling bridge between production and development on one side and IT and digital business on the other.”
CA Digital Experience Insights, helps DevOps teams to support key business outcomes, deliver an exceptional digital user experience, speed app issue resolution even in the most complex digital environments – such as Kubernetes, container, AWS and Azure monitoring – and optimize for the future. This industry leading solution provides a fully correlated and consistent view of what helps or hurts digital experience.
Gartner defines APM suites as one or more software and/or hardware components that facilitate monitoring to meet three main functional dimensions:
• Digital experience monitoring;
• Application discovery, tracing and diagnostics; and
• Artificial intelligence for IT Operations (AIOps) for applications.
“At SERPRO it was very common to run crisis rooms where we had to gather experts from all areas (Dev, Test, Ops) to investigate an application problem due to issues like slowness and errors. It was impacting customer experience, costs and efficiency of our teams. After we started using CA application performance monitoring in our environment, we managed to reduce the demand of these crisis rooms by 95 percent, which brought a dramatic impact in the application reliability, SLAs, productiveness and customer satisfaction” said Félix Sutarelli, IT supervisor, SERPRO.
“Traditional approaches to APM focus on monitoring individual app components in post- development production settings. We believe this recognition acknowledges our work to help customers ‘shift monitoring left’ in the software development lifecycle so defects are remedied quickly to deliver a flawless user experience,” continued Siddiqui.
A new release of CA Application Performance Management, focused on cloud and container monitoring and application to infrastructure monitoring and correlation, provides new and enhanced monitoring capabilities for OpenShift, Kubernetes, Docker and VMware environments.

Email fraud is nothing new, but online criminals have become ever more-effective at spoofing their identities to trick employees into sending them money. The Australian Centre for Cyber Security (ACSC) recorded losses of over $20M to business email compromise (BEC) attacks last year alone, up 230 percent over the previous year – and the full amount is certain to be much larger.

No matter how robust your security, or how diligent your employees, network credentials are a free pass for cybercriminals. This is mostly because employees are relied upon for their own password management. And with more than 4.8 billion sets of stolen credentials said to be available online, odds are that at least a few of your employees’ user IDs and passwords are just waiting to be used by unscrupulous outsiders. Are you ready to stop them?

Cyber resilience will be particularly important as Australian organisations face increased pressure to quickly detect, respond to, and manage the repercussions of breaches in the wake of 2018’s Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme.
