In the application economy, where organizations of all sizes are undergoing digital transformation, software has risen from a supporting role to the lead actor in driving business strategy and velocity. CA Technologies with industry luminaries and partners will explore the software revolution – and how it can create an agility advantage – during CA World ’16, Nov. 14 – 18, 2016, at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

CA World ’16 will feature product demonstrations and more than 600 business, technical and best-practice sessions. Conference attendees will have the chance to learn how to gain competitive advantages from experts sharing real-world experiences in Security, DevOps, Agile and IT Management across mainframe, distributed, mobile and cloud platforms. In addition, industry trends like analytics and collaboration technologies will be a highlight on the show floor.

In addition to mainstage keynotes from CA’s CEO Mike Gregoire, CTO Otto Berkes and President and Chief Product Officer Ayman Sayed, attendees will hear from history-making U.S. astronaut Scott Kelly, Virgin Galactic spacecraft designer Burt Rutan, entrepreneur and author Gene Kim, and Lean Canvas creator Ash Maurya, among others.

Highlights for attendees include:

Pre-Con Education – This year, CA World features double the amount of pre-conference education, with two full days of training, hands-on labs, workshops and technical deep dives – all at no additional cost.

CA Accelerator Zone – The CA Accelerator incubates lean startups. At CA World ’16, attendees can preview the company’s latest incubations in the areas of advanced analytics, containers and microservices, and machine learning, in addition to testing out teamwork and collaboration technology. Tech Talk sessions will offer attendees practical advice on innovation from CA Accelerator intrapreneurs and other experts.

CA Design Zone – In the interactive CA Design Zone, attendees can try their own hand at applying a design lens to their business to experience the impact that the focus on design delivers, and also go behind the scenes of CA’s own Design Center of Excellence.

CA Agility Zone – Attendees can explore agile-led topics in the CA Agility Zone, and hear about proven strategies and practices from expert coaches to help take agile to the next level in their organization.

Development Track – CA World ‘16 Development Track sessions tackle pressing technology trends, such as how to design APIs, get the most out of containers, modernize mainframe applications and use analytics to improve development.

Special Programs and Entertainment – CA World Event Night will feature live performances from Rob Thomas and Capital Cities. Throughout the week, members of the Trek-Segafredo professional cycling team will be on hand to talk about how software gives them a competitive advantage. The team will also participate in a CA-sponsored Bike Ride led by CEO Mike Gregoire around Lake Mead. Attendees can also participate in a Virtual Bike Ride on the expo floor.
