In this industry analyst report, 16 current ENMS solutions from 15
vendor providers were evaluated across a broad range of measures
regarding product strength, overall cost efficiency and overall strength
of the vendors themselves. EMA describes Value Leaders as those vendors
who provide solutions that achieve the best combinations of product
strength and cost efficiency. CA Technologies emerged as a Value Leader
in the Large Deployments group.
"CA IM garnered the strongest product strength score of all solutions
reviewed during this study," said Jim Frey, managing research director,
Enterprise Management Associates. "All ENMS solutions offer the means to
add and create new management interfaces, so that the solution can be
used to cover new network and non-network devices. But customers
specifically cited how they appreciated the capabilities within CA IM
for adding, testing, and certifying new management interfaces on their
own, without requiring direct services or support from CA Technologies.
In addition, the company's strong list of technology partners gives it
high marks in third-party integration areas such as CMDB, route
analytics, event management, and overall integration and
EMA also recognized CA IM as the "Most Extensible - Large Deployments."
The analyst firm noted that the well-matured root cause analysis and
fault isolation engine within CA IM has its heritage in the CA
Spectrum® product, and the solution is easily extensible
in the field for adding new devices to management.
"EMA's recognition of CA IM as a Value Leader is a testament to the
terrific guidance provided by our highly engaged customer community
during the development process, and to the strength of our engineering
and product management organizations," said Mike Sargent, general
manager, CA Technologies. "CA IM is ushering in a new
era of infrastructure management by helping enterprise IT
professionals and service providers resolve service problems as much as
25 times faster at up to 50 percent lower total cost than the previous
version of the product."
