Here’s why it will be worth your while to spend some time in the Service Assurance Focus Area at CA World 2011.

1. Get Agile, Fast: CA World 2011 is all about “IT at the Speed of Business.” For IT professionals focused on managing sophisticated infrastructure and applications, Service Assurance is the answer to a slew of problems. Our goal for the conference is to help you innovate and assure services better, faster and cheaper to your IT organization and overall business. The big picture for IT today isn’t about supporting the business; it’s about integrating with the business. At CA World 2011, enroll in the Service Assurance Focus Area to learn how you can transform IT operations into a technology-savvy business enabler.

2. End the Blame Game: Can’t get a handle on events impacting IT service delivery and quality? Tired of ad hoc, firefighting efforts that produce few results? At CA World 2011, check out Service Operations Insight 3.0 to learn how to integrate date from myriad management tools, reduce the time spent pointing fingers and increase customer and end-user satisfaction with IT services.

3. Under New Management: CA Technologies appointed Mike Sargent General Manager of the Service Assurance Customer Solutions Unit. Come learn how he intends to fulfill customer needs with leading IT management, automation and assurance technologies. Or if you recall last year’s unique Service Assurance presentation, check out his opening keynote to see if he sings Sinatra.

4. Mobile Time Management: Learn more about how you can reclaim hours of your day from the concept of “Mobile Economic Time” or MET. In his CA Technologies on Application Performance Management (APM) blog, Kobi Korsah has detailed this new phenomenon which reveals that the average savvy smartphone and tablet PC user is exploiting their ‘dead-time’ to re-claim an extra 38 days per year. This re-claimed time is increasingly used to engage with online businesses and boost personal productivity. Get hands on insight into MET at CA World 2011.

5. Get the INFO on ITKO: CA Technologies completed its acquisition of ITKO and will be showcasing the LISA technology gained from this buy. At the show in November, CA and ITKO technology experts will share how the two companies are bringing technologies together to enable faster time to market for customer applications. Also bone up on your acronyms: Rumor has it those with the best guess (or funniest) of what the acronyms ITKO and/or LISA stand for could walk away with a prize.

6. Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino: Are you a frequent conference attendee and growing tired of wandering through the cavernous Las Vegas Convention Center? Then CA World 2011, hosted at Mandalay Bay, will offer a refreshing change. Not only are the meeting halls connected to one of Vegas’ swankiest hotels, there’s a plethora of top restaurants, chic shopping, shows like The Lion King and even the Shark Reef Aquarium.

7. Peer Know-How: There will be no shortage of CA Technologies customer presentations – check out the CA World 2011 Agenda Builder now to review them all. From Federal Express to Liberty Mutual to Qualcomm and Bank of America Merrill Lynch, customer testimonials and in-depth presentations will shed some light on how Service Assurance solutions can enable your organization to speed IT service delivery and ensure optimum service quality for your end-user customers.

8. Cloud Watch: ITKO isn’t the only completed acquisition CA Technologies will share details on. The company also closed its deal to buy Watchmouse B.V. (WatchMouse) and provided product proof soon after. CA APM Cloud Monitor comes in two flavors. As an add-on to CA’s full-featured APM solution, CA APM Cloud Monitor lets customers extend the product and get more visibility into transaction performance, regardless of where they run. And on its own, CA APM Cloud Monitor can be used to manage the health and availability of applications. At CA World 2011, go to the CA APM Cloud Monitor exhibit and instantly monitor the performance of any Web site you please.

9. CA World Event Night: Much like years past, CA Technologies is sparing no expense when it comes to entertainment. This year Matchbox Twenty will appear at event night, perhaps performing such classic hits as “Push”, “3AM”, and “Bent”. While you’re at the show to learn about CA products and network with peers, you will also get a chance to party like a rock star on CA’s dime.

10. Early Bird Registration: Receive a $100 gift card to Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino when registering before September 30, 2011. This $100 can be applied to any services at Mandalay Bay outlets including spa services, restaurants and gift shops or even your hotel bill.
