CA Technologies has today announced more than 20 new and updated products across different business verticals, expanding the company's portfolio in areas like DevOps, automation and testing.

Speaking at CA World 2017, CA president and chief product officer Ayman Sayed took to the stage to tell conference attendees about the new capabilities.

"I am particularly happy and pleased, and very excited, about our ability to make the products easier, more intuitive to use, and simpler. This speeds up time-to-value, the time it takes you to get a POC going," he told IT Pro. "We've invested heavily in try-and-buy, in quick time-to-value, and if you look at the number of enhancements we've offered, several of them are in this category."

The new products and features build on the strategic acquisitions made by the company over the last year, including updates to products from Veracode, Blazemeter and Automic.

DevOps has been a major focus of CA's most recent slate of updates, with three new and four updated products. This includes new testing and monitoring tools like API testing for Blazemeter, a new SaaS-based customer experience and application performance management console and new tools for testing code security as part of an IDE for building a DevSecOps workflow.

The company also showed off its award-winning new 'Microgateway' product, allowing businesses to rapidly deploy and manage microservices to modernise existing legacy systems and add additional functionalities.

Machine learning and data-driven analytics are a common thread amongst CA's new products. The company is betting big on the value of these technologies to power what it calls the 'modern software factory', a highly agile, software-based business model that can rapidly adapt to changing market conditions.

"Every business can be a modern software factory and achieve better business outcomes faster with the right intelligence," Sayed said. "Today our portfolio is comprised of the tools and technologies that inject analytics and machine learning into our customers' existing technology investments to compete and win in today's fast-moving marketplace."
