  6. 6. CA World 2008 Focus Area Description: Mainframe and Multi-Platform Application Development Mainframe Security Track Security is a major concern for all of today’s organizations. It is essential to make sure the right people have access to the right data. Without the appropriate security measures in place, you might find someone destroying your valuable data, or selling your company's secrets to your competitors or someone invading the privacy of others. While mainframe security is generally considered more secure than other platforms, the creation of a more open infrastructure exposes the enterprise to unprecedented security threats. Many companies are still using mainframes today and are looking for ways to integrate the mainframe with their client-server networks, making cross-platform security essential. These concerns can be addressed through the deployment of a comprehensive and integrated platform for identity and access management. CA Mainframe Security, which is a part of Identity and Access Management (IAM), is a comprehensive and integrated IAM solution providing automated security controls and analysis for legacy systems, distributed computing environments and web resources to support your compliance initiatives. These solutions help enable you to reduce operational costs while mitigating security risks ─ facilitating regulatory compliance across the entire enterprise and enabling new business applications to strengthen existing customer and partner relationships. Attendees of this track have an opportunity to learn about a complete and proven platform for protecting IT assets across all platforms and environments within an enterprise, see how identity and access management for the mainframe can benefit their organizations, learn best practices and operational results directly from their peers, tap into market thought-leadership and prepare for the latest technologies and industry trends.

Mainframe Workload Automation Track CA Workload Automation solutions are the next generation in the evolution of job management.

Today, many organizations lack the required toolset to centralize scheduling operations from one point of control and to process that work in real-time, while gaining visibility of business processes and their dependencies across the enterprise. CA’s Workload Automation solutions are designed to integrate events, dependencies and schedules into business workloads intelligently and dynamically across the enterprise. Our solutions help organizations to improve the delivery of critical business services reliably while reducing costs through increased efficiency and event-based automation. Workload Automation has become a foundational infrastructure layer that not only manages legacy batch-oriented workload, but can now provide the backbone for the unification and orchestration of real-time, end-to-end IT and business processes. This can be accomplished across disparate platforms and across siloed IT organizations.
