CA Service Assurance Roadmap 2012

We attended the CA Partner Presentation this week from Cameron van Orman, Vice President, Partners & Alliances, Service Assurance Customer Solutions unit.

Cameron and Shay Mowlem talked about the 2012 Roadmap for Service Assurance.  The most interesting part of the presentation was the unveiling of Catalyst, the CA name for the integration of the various products in the Service Assurance into one.  One imminent announcement revolves around APM “Trinidad”, the infrastructure-aware application triage upgrade of Introscope.  Sounds really cool, hope in the upcoming webcast they shed more light on it!
