Revenue for the network management and appliance market grew by 9.1 percent from 2010 to total $2.5 billion in 2011. The International Data Corporation (IDC) predicts that the market will grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 7.5 percent to $4 billion from now to 2017. CA Technologies (News - Alert) owned 13.1 percent of the market in the first half of 2011. Because of this, IDC announced today that they have named CA Technologies the market share leader in the worldwide network management software and appliance market.

The market analysis report, entitled, “Worldwide Network Management Software and Appliance 2012-2017 Forecast and 2010 and 1H11 Vendor Shares,” was written by Lee Doyle, vice president of IDC (News - Alert).

He stated his reasons for naming CA Technologies as a market leader in the following summary for the press release, “CA Technologies believes that the relationship between the performance and the availability of infrastructure and applications is the fundamental key to ensuring consistent, high-quality business service operations management. As such, CA Technologies network/infrastructure management offering has a strong focus on unified proactive performance management, intelligent infrastructure fault isolation and root cause analysis, network flow analysis, application delivery, physical/virtual systems management, and unified communications monitoring.”

He continued, “In combination with CA Application Performance Management (for end-user experience management, cloud and transaction monitoring, and deep-dive application analytics) and CA Service Operations Insight (for IT and business service modeling and event management), CA Infrastructure Management is a cornerstone in CA Technologies Service Assurance portfolio of solutions.”

“CA Technologies innovative and comprehensive service assurance portfolio allows customers to realize Business Service Innovation,” said Mike Sargent, general manager, Enterprise Management, CA Technologies. “Our integrated offerings enable CIOs and IT executives to focus on delivering new, innovative business services instead of managing and maintaining IT. This recognition by IDC as the network management market share leader validates our success in helping enterprise and service provider customers accelerate cycle times, reduce IT costs, improve service quality and ensure service performance.”

In other news, CMS Peripherals (Ireland) announced that it is an approved reseller of CA ARCserve products and Managed Server Provider (MSP) Licenses from CA Technologies. This move came as a response to the growing demand from Irish-based service providers to offer customers popular CA ARCserve data protection solutions on a highly desired monthly licensing basis.
