CA unleashes Clarity 8 for PPM
Solution will help better align budgets and busines
IT management software giant CA has launched its latest project and portfolio management (PPM) solution, Clarity 8, in the region.
CA Clarity 8 addresses corporate governance needs by providing technology, that allows corporations to better align budgets and resources with business needs using IT.
The product features 150 enhancements and is designed to minimise the risk of inadequate control of IT resources across the enterprise.
The product was launched last month at the Hawkamah Corporate Governance in the Middle East and North Africa Conference, held at the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC).
Speaking at the launch of CA Clarity 8, Bjarne Rasmussen, vice president, Technology and Business Units, CA Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) Eastern Markets, said: “Good corporate IT governance is vital for financial and economic deployment in the region.
“Being the global leader for IT governance solutions as well as one of the top 100 technology providers for the financial industry, CA is proud to share our expertise and experience to help fuel the growth of the region’s finance sector in the global market place.”
CA believes that IT governance is integral to the success of corporate governance as it provides organisations with management and control of IT services, which helps to prioritise and justify IT investments.
It also ensures that IT change processes comply with the regulatory requirements that are becoming mandatory in the financial sector — particularly for banks, which operate internationally.
At Gitex 2006 last month CA announced that two of its senior CA executives have been promoted to broader roles following their success at driving business growth in the region.
Gilbert Lacroix, has been appointed to the position of vice president, EMEA Channels, from his current role as vice president and area manager for EMEA’s Eastern Market after successfully deploying a 100% indirect business model in the region.
Meanwhile Ned Jaroudi, who is currently vice president of area field marketing for EMEA’s Eastern Markets, is to be given the role of vice president of EMEA channel marketing.
