CA CEO: On innovation, playing it safe is the riskiest thing a company can do

Companies need to embrace risk and become ‘software factories’ to remain competitive, according CA CEO Mike Gregoire.

“We’ve long passed the point where enterprise software is used merely to drive efficiencies,” Gregoire said at the CA World conference in Las Vegas this week. “The focus today is on innovating the next big shift for your company.”

Building upon last year’s digital transformation theme, Gregoire furthered the company’s visions that not only should all companies become software companies, but ‘software factories’: not only should companies being making software, but doing so in a way that makes use of best practices around Agile, DevOps, Continuous Delivery, and security.

 “Software is the great creative medium of our age. Companies are competing on code. Having a modern software factory is a prerequisite for staying competitive.”

Gregoire was keen to highlight what he called “Pivot” moments; software and data-driven changes which enable new services and better experiences for end-users. To achieve these changes, organisations should ‘listen to their data’ in order to ‘drive change from within’.
