Pros

CA has been a tremendous enabler of success for me and my clients. There is no other software company with the right combination of best of breed solutions that can address the complexities and challenges of today's CIO. CA is best of breed in Network, Voice, Applications, and Systems Mgt. We are best of breed in Project/Portfolio, Asset, and Service Governance. We are best of breed in Identity and Access Mgt. We are best of breed in Service and Asset Lifecycle Mgt. Nobody can boast that breadth and depth.

Cons

The legacy, history and perception of the old Computer Associates. We are still the Rodney Dangerfeild of Software - we get no respect. You have to earn it.

Advice to Management

Keep the innovation engine stoked. We're finally getting back into developing new technologies that are great: Data Center Automation, Catalyst, Software Compliance Manager, Governance Risk Compliance. Keep R&D going into making it easier to integrate our technology. Catalyst could be the game changer. So watch out.

    Pros

    Company is getting better everyday. The engine or organic growth has been reignited and good things should follow. Many of the problems of the past are being corrected. In general they are interested in making good technology, although its been a bit of a learning process for them to get it right in a lot of areas.

    Cons

    Plenty of historic problems still exist, such as low-levels of collaboration across business lines -- but they are obviously working on improving things. Resources are not shared fairly across the company. Certain groups that make lots of money get no special resources, yet other groups that are complete loss-leaders or have outlived their hopes of ever making money get plenty of investment.

    Advice to Management

    More "real" training on the business and things really work in CA is needed for all employees.
