Bull and CA Technologies have formed a strategic alliance to help large enterprises transform their heterogeneous IT infrastructures to private clouds.

The alliance is based on several technology synergies including a distribution agreement covering CA Technologies Virtualization Management and Service Automation solution portfolio: CA Automation Suite for Data Centers, an integrated solution for automated data center management that supports a variety of computing environments, includingWindows, Linux, AIX and other types of UNIX.

By delivering value-added consulting and integration services based upon CA Technologies solutions for service automation and service level agreement (SLA) management, this alliance will allow both companies to help customers to drive efficiencies in their IT infrastructures and streamline architecture silos – whilst automating most of their IT management processes.

Furthermore, Bull and CA Technologies will continue their existing collaboration on contractual service level management – a critical challenge when migrating to cloud services. Bull has a proven track record and years of expertise in the successful deployment of CA Business Service Insight, formerly known as Oblicore Guarantee.

The combination of CA Technologies solutions and Bull’s integration services is essential to make virtualized architectures more flexible and introduce a new dynamic infrastructure within the enterprise in order to improve IT productivity and the way IT resources are used.

Bull Advisory Services provide customers with an infrastructure assessment and analysis to determine opportunities that may be addressed by the cloud model. Following an assessment, Bull provides recommendations ranging from a set of services, to a new reference architecture, and an ROI model for the solution.

As part of the alliance, CA Technologies will provide Bull with the technical, sales and marketing support needed to achieve successful implementation of the solutions. Accordingly, both R&D teams will work closely together and technical experts will take part in training, technical support, pre-sales and other common initiatives.
