CA Workload Automation is designed to support the delivery of integrated user experiences across distributed, mainframe and cloud platforms.

“Workload automation sits at the heart of the business services delivered by enterprises around the world. It is the workhorse that manages the processes critical to business operations,” says Mark Combs, senior vice president of strategy and mainframe for CA Technologies.

CA Workload Automation includes several new capabilities that help customers reduce the complexity of managing workloads across the hybrid computing environment of distributed, mainframe and cloud. Supported by new releases of CA Workload Automation AE, CA Workload Automation iDash and CA Workload Automation iXP, among others, the solution helps improve business service delivery to drive a positive customer experience.
