New York, N.Y., November 18, 2013 — / — CA Technologies (NASDAQ:CA) today announced the appointment of Ruston Vickers to chief DevOps architect. Vickers will guide and lead customers’ DevOps strategies to help them deliver higher quality software and services to market faster.

DevOps is a methodology which helps foster collaboration between the teams that create and test applications (Dev) with those that maintain them in production environments (Ops).

In this role, Vickers will also lead the company’s global engagement in initiatives on DevOps and implementation of CA LISA Service Virtualization, Release Automation and Pathfinder, all of which are critical to implement DevOps.

“We are one of the first companies to establish the chief DevOps architect position. With Ruston’s depth of knowledge and expertise, he can help our customers transform their application development and deployment process,” said Shridhar Mittal, general manager of Application Delivery at CA Technologies.

Vickers was part of the team that pioneered service virtualization in the enterprise systems environments at ITKO,which was acquired by CA Technologies in 2011. He brought LISA to market in the distributed application space in 1999. He is a contributor to the best practices book, “Service Virtualization: Reality is Overrated.”

“Many companies are realizing that the conventional methods of creating and releasing applications are not good enough in today’s complex environments,” said Vickers. “As a pioneer of service virtualization, we are in a leading position to help our customers implement DevOps strategies to stay competitive and meet innovation challenges.”

CA Technologies is expanding its portfolio in the DevOps space with recently released CA LISA Suite 7.1, including CA LISA Service Virtualization, which allows customers to build and test new applications in simulated environments, and Pathfinder, a data mining offering that provides business workflow information to development and test teams. It also helps enterprises optimize a large number of complex releases across the application lifecycle with CA LISA Release Automation.
