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 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.
