CA Technologies Releases Latest Sustainability Report

CA Technologies (NASDAQ:CA) today announced the release of its latest Sustainability Report, as further evidence of the company’s long-term commitment to operational efficiency. The company has reduced its carbon footprint by approximately 50 percent since first taking part in the initiative in 2006.

The report underscores the company’s continued evolution of corporate responsibility, from environmental stewardship to broader societal impact. It also demonstrates how CA’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) progress is linked to its business and positively benefits customers, employees and communities around the world.

“At CA, we concentrate not only on what is essential to our business success, but also on what works for our people, our communities and our shared natural environment,” said Erica Christensen, vice president, Corporate Social Responsibility, CA Technologies. “We support core issues that must be addressed in order for our society to thrive in the years to come, including climate change; industry trust and security; and skills for the future workforce. This latest Sustainability Report explores these themes, while providing a look at our most recent accomplishments.”

This report, which covers the 2017 calendar year, was drafted in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 Standards at the Core level and incorporates the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact. it includes independent external assurance of CA’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Highlights include:

  • Environmental Progress: In 2017, CA reported a total of 47,841 metric tons of GHG emissions, approximately 50 percent lower than in 2006. The 50 percent reduction — or 47,347 metric tons — is equivalent to taking 10,139 passenger vehicles off the road for one year, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. CA is committed to achieving its next GHG reduction target of 40 percent by 2030, based off a 2015 baseline.
  • Trust and Security: CA offers identity and access management solutions that empower its customers to take a proactive approach to enterprise security. In 2017, CA bolstered its security capabilities with the addition of Veracode to its suite of solutions. It enables developers to run a dynamic security scan for a deployed Web application to track release content from planning to production.
  • CSR Initiatives: CA has expanded its focus on advancing STEM learning through partnerships and programs with organizations including 100Kin10, AnitaB.org, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Citizen Schools, Code.org, DonorsChoose.org, Girls Who Code, NPower and PENCIL.
  • UN Sustainable Development Goals: CA has embedded the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into its sustainability strategy to help accelerate progress.
  • Skills for the Future Workforce: CA recently announced its goal to reach 50,000 under-18 students in Europe by 2020 to inspire them to consider future careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM fields), and to help address the chronic skills gap. The company is also a founding partner of the World Economic Forum’s IT Industry Skills Initiative, an effort committed to reskilling one million people with resources and training opportunities on the SkillSET portal by January 2021.
  • Employee Engagement: CA has implemented a global New Parent Leave policy that offers all employees a minimum of 12 weeks paid leave during the first 12 months following the birth or adoption of a child. This new benefit enhances CA's overall offering for families worldwide and strengthens its commitment to creating an inclusive culture that promotes gender parity. CA also supports all working parents with a range of benefits and programs that center around work/life balance, flexibility and opportunity.
  • Inclusion and Diversity: In 2017, CA expanded its Unconscious Bias training to in-person workshops and CA CEO Mike Gregoire signed the CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion™ pledge.
  • Customer Solutions. CA’s Modern Software Factory is where agility, automation, insights and security work together to power a company’s digital transformation in the application economy. This philosophy has sustainability built in — from the efficiency gained and time and resources saved through automation to the stability and security CA is providing to the digital economy to help enable business continuity.

When a company wants to develop an application, it must worry about many aspects: selecting the infrastructure, building the technical stack, defining the storage strategy, configuring networks, setting up monitoring and logging, and on top of that, the company needs to worry about high availability, flexibility, scalability, data processing, machine learning, etc. Going to the cloud infrastructure can help you solving these problems to a level, but what if we have a better way to do things. ...
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Th...
With the rise of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container technologies, the growth of microservices has skyrocketed among dev teams looking to innovate on a faster release cycle. This has enabled teams to finally realize their DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model. Why containers are growing in popularity is no surprise — they’re extremely easy to spin up or down, but come with an unforeseen issue. However, without the right foresight, DevOps and IT teams may lo...

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
When you're operating multiple services in production, building out forensics tools such as monitoring and observability becomes essential.

"There is a huge interest in Kubernetes. People are now starting to use Kubernetes and implement it," stated Sebastian Scheele, co-founder of Loodse, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Kubernetes is an open source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. Kubernetes was originally built by Google, leveraging years of experience with managing container workloads, and is now a Cloud Native Compute Foundation (CNCF) project.

However, Kubernetes may seem intimidating and complex ...
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way. And so it goes with container orchestration and automation solutions, which are rapidly emerging as the means to maintain the bliss between rapid container adoption and broad container use among multiple cloud host...
