CA Technologies Interview Podcast Series Part 3.1 – Build To Change, AI, and The Modern Software Factory
We spoke to Stephen Miles, Chief Technology Officer of CA Technologies and Nick Lim, Vice President to ASEAN and Greater China Region of CA Technologies. In this three-part podcast series we will be exploring the concept of Modern Software Factory as coined by CA Technologies, API based software systems adoption by companies, and industry potential in Malaysia. In this first section of the third part of the series we start with the main Q&A session that covers CA Technologies’ Built to Change approach, Artificial Intelligence in the modern software architecture, and further explore the concept of the modern software factory.
The Built to Change model is the current wave of model that has replaced, and reinforces the Built to Last model of old. The argument behind that is that in the current volatile, highly dynamic economic and industrial environment companies now need to evolve all the time and change at a moment’s notice. Environments and requirements change all the time at this peak of technological dominance. Due to this environment consumers tend to be plenty more dynamic and demand more services from companies they engage with. At the same time trends and requirements of these consumers quickly change and evolve very quickly. That requires companies to be able to digitally adapt their platforms as demands and requirements changes. That is the Built to Change model.
Artificial Intelligence in a sense is a large buzzword. For CA Technologies, their main focus in using AI is complete automation. Automating systems increases not just efficiency in processes, it increases the program’s effectiveness. Beyond that also CA Technologies work with plenty of data and information. These are technically the building blocks for a workable AI system. CA Technologies would aim to use these data and information to proactively provide insights and recommendations to its clients. But at the same time CA Technologies would leverage the AI technology to ultimately deliver a higher level of automation for its clients to further elevate the efficiency of an organisation.
