Delegates at Gartner Symposium ITXPO 2011 Barcelona learned about ‘IT at the Speed of Business’ - also the theme of CA World 2011 being held a week later in Las Vegas - to illustrate the control and insight companies need to take advantage of fast moving opportunities across physical, virtual or cloud environments.
A series of speaker sessions also provided visitors with great insight into key topics as follows:
• CA Technologies Chief Technology Officer for EMEA, Bjarne Rasmussen discussed The Transformation of IT and why building and effectively delivering innovative services around customers and employees is vital for business success. He also shared his thoughts on the triggers that have influenced the huge change in how IT is procured, utilized and disposed of.

His presentation included the findings of Accenture’s High Performance IT Study (HPIT) which provides an overview of the impact of cloud computing on IT governance. It also showed how IT departments can leverage service and portfolio management software solutions to adapt to new environmental factors and associated challenges.
• Chris Rae, Vice President of Cloud Solutions, CA Technologies EMEA provided insights on what history can tell us about the future of computing, how war babies made the mainframe and how the baby boomers have turned their back on it. He also discussed why constant technology innovation around customers and employees is vital, and why IT leaders need to constantly harness new technologies with greater speed and agility.
According to Bjarne Rasmussen, Chief Technology Officer for CA Technologies EMEA, “There has never been a greater need for IT to move with speed and agility to help organizations accelerate growth and increase efficiency whilst controlling costs. Under the theme ‘IT at the Speed of Business’, CA Technologies demonstrated a bold vision across all IT environments – from mainframe and distributed, to virtual and cloud at this year’s Gartner Symposium ITXPO 2011.
