CA Arabia is gearing up for a new regional push this September, with GITEX Technology Week seeing it move its focus to project portfolio management.

The firm will also be expanding its mainframe consultancy service to enterprises in the Middle East, which offers dedicated highly skilled consultants for accounts.

"The Middle East is a key region for CA, and is one of the fastest growing areas in the vendor's emerging markets theatres. This gives it prime importance as an engine for future growth," says Sabby Gill, vice president and general manager of EMEA Eastern for CA. He sees the Middle East as an increasingly sophisticated market, with one of the key trends being the move to make IT departments a separate business unit - something that meshes with CA's current rhetoric.

"We're seeing the move to IT departments as profit centres more and more in our market," Gill continues. "Spinning off IT and making it an external organisation where you're only paying for the delivery of services is effectively outsourcing. And because it's more of a service delivery, this fits in very well with CA's vision of govern, secure, and manage."

CA aims to capture the enterprise management systems market, not just for IT, but across the business, as organisations around the world increasingly demands greater insight into all levels of their operation. Through a series of acquisitions and development, CA now boasts an unrivalled range of management, governance and security tools.

"In every large company there are multiple PC, server and storage suppliers; networking products; application, management and security providers, and so on. The problem is further aggravated by myriad offerings to manage that complex environment, often tied to specific brands of hardware, software or applications," says CA's CEO, John Swainson. "So the burning question becomes: what is the best way to manage a complex system to achieve maximum efficiency, effectiveness and of course security?"

The answer, Swainson hopes, is CA's line of products and services.
