ISLANDIA, N.Y., March 8, 2010 – CA, Inc. (NASDAQ:CA), today announced three new partnerships for its expanding ecoSoftware business unit. The partners include Global Green Consulting Group, a sustainability strategy and business performance consulting firm; Opto 22, a manufacturer of hardware and software products that link electrical, mechanical, and electronic devices to networks and computers; and TrendPoint Systems, a provider of products for power metric tracking at the circuit level.

Optimizing Business Processes
Organization-wide sustainability program management can be a complex task, involving many project owners and impacting a wide variety of business processes. CA’s partnership with Global Green Consulting can provide customers with business and process consulting expertise to help evaluate and implement sustainability programs across the enterprise. Global Green Consulting experts can help them evaluate and document existing processes, identify areas of improvement, and ultimately help to implement a comprehensive sustainability program.
Improving Operational Energy Data Collection
By improving the ability to capture real-time energy data down to the device and circuit level, data center and facilities managers can gain insight into power consumption trends, hot spots, and potential areas to focus on for improvement.
CA ecoSoftware helps organizations to consolidate the flow of energy-related information from a wide range of sources into a single repository, using standard networking protocols to collect data from devices. With the Opto 22 SNAP-IT Rack with Brain, companies can also monitor legacy devices and systems that do not support standard modern protocols, facilitating a technology-agnostic approach to energy management.
For additional insight into energy utilization, TrendPoint’s EnerSure® collects data from various electrical energy sources. EnerSure devices are certified with CA ecoSoftware, helping customers facilitate intelligent trending, capacity planning and alerting.
