CA, Inc. (NASDAQ: CA) today announced that LVM Versicherungen, a nationwide
insurance group that is among the top five auto insurers in Germany, will
control its workflows using CA ESP Workload Automation. The world’s
leading provider of IT management software is supporting the insurance company
by introducing a business-oriented strategy for cross-platform workflow
In a highly competitive insurance market it is key for business-critical
applications to remain highly reliable and cost efficient, which is why LVM
Versicherungen has chosen CA ESP Workload Automation.
The solution, which will phase out BMC CONTROL-M, responds to business events
in real time, allocates workload processes to respective service level
agreements, distributes resources according to their infrastructure status, and
proactively administers performance.
In contrast to BMC, CA ESP Workload Automation provides a browser-based
graphical interface, which allows us to quickly and easily depict network
processes, said Jürgen Falk, project manager at LVM Versicherungen. In
addition, our job and network documentation, which previously needed to be
maintained manually, will now be automatically updated, and graphical
representations can be created at any time. This allows our project staff to
access the latest information at any time with the touch of a button. With up to
48,000 daily jobs on all platforms-z/OS, UNIX, Linux and Windows-this represents
a significant workload reduction.
CA ESP Workload Automation is a mainframe-hosted, event-driven solution for
workload automation that offers the following advantages:
- Browser-based graphical interface - Increased operating efficiency - Greater
productivity - Improved availability of important business services - Cost
control and reduced risk
Falk continued: CA ESP Workload Automation also features a test environment
with a functional simulation. With job charts, job flows, and
informative-including graphical-reports, errors that may occur when jobs and
networks are being defined can quickly be recognized in advance within the test
While complexity is increasing, it is even more important to safely manage our
IT processes. When data and transactions are being processed, there is no room
for error, explained Werner Schmidt, executive manager at LVM Versicherungen. CA
will help us to establish an integrated management system for our existing and
