CA Outlines E-business Strategy

Computer Associates yesterday outlined several key pieces of its strategy to provide the infrastructure on which electronic business runs. The software giant, at its annual CA World user conference in New Orleans, detailed the new version of Jasmine TND, its object-oriented database that is at the center of its E-business strategy.

In addition, CA announced E-Trust, a suite of security tools that include virtual private networking software and public key infrastructure (PKI) systems.

While the announcements thus far at CA World have had little in the way of new products, CA is attempting to map out its vision for the future: to provide a portfolio of products and services that will help companies develop, deploy, and manage E-business.

Jasmine TND, which was announced this past May and includes 3-D visualization and CA's Neugent technology for predictive analysis, is now available as a beta version to a larger number of customers (the previous beta version shipped to only a handful of customers). General availability of Jasmine TND will come after the next round of testing is completed, which will take several months, according to Carl Hartman, vice president of marketing at CA.

"Jasmine TND is the culmination of what we've been working on for a number of years," CA chairman and CEO Charles Wang told the thousands of conference attendees in his keynote speech. "We have to cover the entire life cycle of an application, and Jasmine TND ties it all together," Wang said. "For the first time we have the whole solution."

The strategy is CA's attempt to push Jasmine beyond just a database to an application-development environment, a repository, a business-intelligence system, and a back-end system for E-business applications, analysts say.

The E-Trust announcement ties together all CA's security products, including those it got when it acquired Platinum Technologies earlier this year as well as several smaller security-only vendors. It includes encryption, a firewall, single sign-on, desktop security, a directory server, and more. Today, CA is expected to lay out a detailed map of how it will integrate all of Platinum's products with its own.

CA, along with PageNet and 3Com, also announced The Wireless Intelligent Infrastructure Support Technology, or TWIST, an infrastructure that includes CA's Unicenter TNG, Jasmine TND, PageNet's wireless communications network, 3Com's Palm Computing platform, and services from CA's Global Professional Services organization.

In other news, CA's Interbiz Solutions division announced BizWorks, a framework for integrating CA's financial, manufacturing, and human-resource applications. BizWorks leverages Neugent technology and will include products and services.
