Leading IT Services Company Expects to Lower Operating Expenses, Drive Innovation by Standardizing on CA Technologies Mainframe Software
ISLANDIA, NY and MORGES, Switzerland, December 3, 2012 - CA Technologies (NASDAQ:CA) today announced that Tieto, northern Europe's leading IT services company, is relying on CA Technologies mainframe management solutions to drive increased productivity and service quality as it works to enhance its customers' success. By replacing its current mainframe management tools and consolidating operations on CA Technologies mainframe software, Tieto expects to lower the company's mainframe operating expenses, support more innovative and agile service delivery and attract next-generation mainframe staff.
"CA Technologies mainframe management solutions will help transform Tieto's operations, simplifying and streamlining almost every mainframe management task," says Juha Pärnistö, director, Mainframe Business, Tieto.

Ultimately, the real winners here are Tieto's customers who will receive an even more satisfying, reliable, and cost-effective service from Tieto."
A long-term user of CA Technologies mainframe solutions, Tieto also previously used an assortment of mainframe tools from other vendors. Tieto plans to gradually replace the other vendors' software with a consolidated, integrated suite of CA Technologies mainframe performance and automation, mainframe testing, and mainframe database management tools. Tieto expects its customers in financial services, telecommunications, manufacturing and other sectors will benefit from the reduced cost and complexity of managing mission critical workloads.
