CA Technologies Launches Industry's First Management Cloud for Mobility
Solutions to Secure the Mobile Enterprise and Accelerate Innovation to Capture Growth in the Global Mobile Economy
Mumbai, Maharashtra , India

Today at Mobile World Congress, CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) launched the industry’s first, comprehensive Management Cloud for Mobility. Delivered as a cloud service, this portfolio enables enterprises to manage, secure and grow their business, increase productivity and deliver an enhanced mobile experience. 
“The explosion of new devices, applications, content and transactions in the mobile environment has opened new challenges for enterprises of all sizes, worldwide.  The CA Management Cloud for Mobility will help enterprises transform the challenges of the new mobile economy into significant opportunity,” said Vic Mankotia, Vice President - Solution Strategy, APAC & Japan, CA Technologies. “With solutions that power innovation, drive productivity and accelerate the development of new mobile applications and offerings, CA is extending its leadership in IT management to help businesses capitalize on the next technological and business shift – mobility.”
The portfolio includes three complementary solution suites: Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) to manage and secure mobile devices, applications and content; Mobile DevOps to accelerate application development and deployment; and Enterprise Internet of Things (IoT) to enable the adoption of internet-connected devices. The complete EMM suite and key products of the Mobile DevOps suite are available for purchase. Customers have the choice and flexibility to deploy the complete portfolio of solutions or individual components, with the ability to customize and scale cost effectively.
This CA Management Cloud for Mobility is powered by Smart Containerization™ technology. Unlike traditional device-focused mobility management techniques, Smart Containerization™ allows enterprises to manage the security, performance, compliance and support characteristics of the device, application, content or email while preserving the quality of the mobile user experience.
“The growth of mobile devices and apps in the enterprise is blurring the lines between personal and corporate data and leading to new challenges for enterprises,” said Chris Hazelton, Research Director, Mobile & Wireless, 451 Research. “The EMM space is evolving as companies are looking for more complete offerings that support customers and productive mobile employees. Secure container technologies must provide enterprise scalability and comprehensive security across app development, delivery and support, all while preserving the familiar native look and feel of nearly any mobile device an employee chooses to carry.”
Enable Enterprise Mobility Management 

The EMM suite enables enterprises to drive employee productivity and satisfaction by simplifying the management and security of devices, applications, content and email. 
The four products within the EMM suite available for purchase are:

  • New CA Mobile Application Management (CA MAM): Provides security, management and control of mobile applications with fine-grained access control polices for mobile applications.
  • New CA Mobile Content Management (CA MCM): Enables secure content access and collaboration through file synchronization, access to enterprise content repositories and cloud store integration made available to the end user through policy-based mobile access.
  • New CA Mobile Email Management (CA MEM): Provides users with secure access to their corporate email and ensures group and policy-based controls to protect sensitive email content.
  • CA Mobile Device Management (CA MDM): Delivers comprehensive capabilities to provision, secure and manage mobile devices, and deploy mobile applications automatically or through an enterprise app store. 
Accelerate Mobile Application Delivery

The Mobile DevOps suite helps enterprises accelerate the delivery of user-experience-focused mobile applications. It enables enterprises to achieve faster time to market by accelerating continuous application delivery while enhancing security. Working across multiple development tools, languages and methodologies, Mobile DevOps makes it easy to build and test rich API-based mobile applications, gain deep insights into performance, user experience, crash and log analytics, and automate and support these mobile applications when deployed onto millions of devices.
The four products within the Mobile DevOps suite available for purchase are:
  • New CA Layer 7 API Portal: Simplifies publishing APIs, onboarding developers, and streamlines enterprises’ ability to rapidly develop applications based on these APIs.
  • New CA Layer 7 Mobile Access Gateway: Delivers unified access across web and mobile, authenticates users based on risk levels and protects the datacenter against rogue applications.
  • CA LISA Test for Mobile: Offers mobile and web developers global access to a comprehensive platform that simulates an exhaustive list of user scenarios for testing.
  • CA LISA Service Virtualization: Allows customers to test new mobile applications in simulated environments.

Additional Mobile DevOps capabilities will be available in the next few months, including mobile APM, crash and log analytics, user experience analytics and remote application support.
According to a Forrester Research report, “Development shops are just starting to grapple with the biggest change to system architecture since the rise of client/server in the early 1990s: omnichannel clients deployed on smartphones, tablets, and other connected devices. The mobilefirst focus these organizations adopt, forces application architects to think differently about the APIs clients use to access data and functionality.”*
Manage and Grow in the Ubiquitously-Connected Tomorrow
Enterprise IoT will enable businesses to deploy internet-connected devices, and manage and secure billions of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) interactions. Ubiquitous connectivity, advancements in big data analytics and the ability to embed computing into everything have led to the rise of the IoT phenomenon. The Enterprise IoT suite will provide enterprises a secure foundation to extend mobility with IoT infrastructure to achieve business efficiencies.
These Mobility offerings from CA are further supported by significant advances in the CA Security portfolio. These include new and updated identity-based solutions that help customers secure their growing portfolio of cloud services and mobile applications.
“CA has the DNA to provide the most comprehensive enterprise mobility platform. Their rich enterprise stack has an established enterprise footprint. When you combine that with the mobility product integration announced today, it’s an attractive value proposition for our customers. In particular, the new products announced provides total control of device, application, content and email while respecting BYOD freedom,” said Frank Cheng, Chief Technology Officer, Wistron.

BWI: ‘Land, Touch and Go’ - Orlando Airport First to Offer Fast-Track Clearance to International Travelers

Source : SITA
Tuesday, February 25, 2014 5:04PM IST (11:34AM GMT)
'Land, Touch and Go' - Orlando Airport First to Offer Fast-Track Clearance to International Travelers
SITA provides biometrics kiosks to fast-track international arrivals
Orlando, United States

Orlando International Airport is the first to offer international travelers from visa waiver countries the option to 'land, touch and go', using SITA's Automated Passport Control (APC) kiosks to self-process for faster US border clearance. The Greater Orlando Aviation Authority (GOAA) announced today that arriving passengers from 37 visa waiver countries can now enjoy quick and easy processing at US customs and immigration.
Orlando is the only airport in the United States to use these high-tech biometric kiosks which allow international travelers, from countries that participate in the U.S. visa waiver program, to self-process into the US. Ten biometric APC kiosks are now available for US citizens, Canadians and visa waiver travelers to complete their Customs Declaration form on a touch-screen, have their passports scanned and fingerprints and photograph taken prior to, and in preparation for, their interview with the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Officer. The pre-processing these kiosks perform significantly reduces the time to complete the clearance process.
Phil Brown, Executive Director of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority, said: “These kiosks are the first to go live for international travelers arriving in the USA and are a great addition to Orlando International Airport. We have a growing number of wide-body aircraft arriving within 90 minutes of each other every afternoon and 90 percent of travelers are arriving from visa waiver countries. Since we installed these new kiosks we have seen a dramatic increase in the total number of travelers processed per minute.”
Paul Houghton, SITA President, Americas, said: “This is another great improvement in the “Orlando Experience”, the airport’s initiative to improve customer satisfaction. SITA specializes in using innovative technology to improve the passenger experience at airports around the world. Innovation in border management is a win-win situation. This change is expected to save millions of dollars for the government and the USA travel and tourism industry.”
The iBorders™ solution implemented by SITA in partnership with Vision-Box® automatically verifies and validates the passenger’s travel documents, checks flight information, captures an ICAO-compliant face image and up to 10 fingerprints, as well as obtaining the customs declaration data required by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency (CBP). This full process can be completed in 90 seconds or less.  At the end of the self-service process, travelers receive a receipt to be presented to the CBP officer for the final clearance, at a fast-track dedicated lane.
The kiosks are complimentary to use and do not require registration in advance; however, travelers must have previously entered the U.S. and have fingerprints on file with CBP. They are designed with the passenger experience in mind. They have intuitive, user-friendly interfaces, clear instructions and feedback, combined with quick proactive adjustments for each passenger including adjusting automatically to their height.
SITA is in discussions with international airports across the USA to install these kiosks as quickly as possible to help reduce the unwelcome waiting times which international travelers have experienced in recent years.
A paper outlining the efficiencies that Phase III APC Kiosks can deliver is available here.

BWI: 18 MW Solar Park from SunEdison India Enables Tamil Nadu Businesses to Reap Financial Benefits of Utility-Scale Solar

Source : SunEdison
Tuesday, February 25, 2014 3:54PM IST (10:24AM GMT)
18 MW Solar Park from SunEdison India Enables Tamil Nadu Businesses to Reap Financial Benefits of Utility-Scale Solar
Innovative Business Model Helps India Businesses Safely Invest in Solar While Driving Growth for SunEdison
Chennai, Tamil Nadu , India and Belmont, Calif., United States

SunEdison (NYSE:SUNE), a leading solar technology manufacturer and provider of solar energy services, today announced that it has commenced full-time operations at its 18 MW (megawatt) Tirunelveli solar power plant in Tamil Nadu. The park is designed to help commercial and industrial businesses easily own a solar park. SunEdison relied on its global experience to select a site, obtain permits, design and build a unique solar park that allows businesses to procure as much solar electricity as they desire without having to become solar experts.

Thanks to the 2012 Accelerated Depreciation Benefit for Solar tax law and competitively priced solar power through the Open Access program, which allows developers to sell Renewable Energy Credits, businesses investing in the Tirunelveli Solar Park can expect rapid return on their investment. The Accelerated Depreciation Benefit allows businesses in India to receive 100% depreciation on solar assets in the first year after purchase. Businesses that purchase part of the Tirunelveli Solar Park can typically expect payback of their equity investment as a tax credit within the first year. Power generated by their portion of the Tirunelveli Solar Park will be fed into the local electricity grid to offset their electricity bills. The Tirunelveli Solar Park locks in electricity pricing for 25 years, protecting owners from the rising costs of fossil fuel generated electricity.

Building a solar park requires expertise outside of most businesses’ core competencies such as procuring appropriate land, obtaining necessary permits and designing a profitable solar electricity plant. SunEdison is solving this issue by offering a secure, turnkey solution based on the knowledge the company has amassed interconnecting 1.4 GW (gigawatts) and operating 1.9 GW of solar worldwide.

“The Tirunelveli Solar Park is a tremendous growth opportunity for our company because it allows us to reach a new customer base of businesses,” noted Pashupathy Gopalan, President, SunEdison, Asia Pacific, GCC and South Africa. “We’re offering a turnkey solution that allows commercial and industrial businesses to take advantage of renewable tax incentives with minimal effort. We’ve developed this model to make solar a hassle-free investment for businesses.”

Every aspect of the plant is designed to maximize return on investment for its owners. For example, the plant includes SunEdison AP90 single-axis trackers, which are designed to maximize electricity harvest by following the sun throughout the day. Additionally, the AP90 is designed to significantly shorten installation times and reduce construction and maintenance costs.

The 80-acre solar power plant which is in Munanjipatti near Tirunelveli, Tamil Nadu, will be managed by the SunEdison Renewable Operation Center (ROC), which provides global 24/7 asset management, monitoring and reporting services. Data collected from the ROC is used to continuously improve the company’s products, project designs and service offerings. 
About SunEdison India

SunEdison works with state governments, commercial and industrial customers, and other blue chip companies in India to design innovative and affordable solar solutions for their energy requirements.   SunEdison’s Eradication of Darkness Program, initiated with the implementation of an off-grid rural electrification project in Meerwada, providing light to over 400 villagers and has grown to include a solar water pump offering and philanthropic efforts. SunEdison India also developed a 1 MW solar power plant suspended over the Narmada Canal and executed the first Solar PPA in India commissioned at Standard Chartered Bank, Chennai. In 2012 the Independent Power Producers Association of India (IPPAI) named SunEdison “The Best Solar Power Producer” of the year.

About SunEdison

SunEdison is a global leader in semiconductor and solar technology, and a leading solar energy services provider dedicated to transforming lives through innovation. SunEdison provides innovative, advanced technology solutions to corporations, utilities, governments and leading chip manufacturers to transform lives around the world. With R&D and manufacturing facilities in the U.S., Europe and Asia, the company focuses on innovation throughout our business. We carry this commitment throughout our global sales, manufacturing and support organizations.

SunEdison common stock is listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "SUNE." For more information please visit www.sunedison.com

Forward Looking Statements

Certain matters discussed in this press release are forward-looking statements; including that Tirunelveli Solar Park owners can typically expect a return on equity within the first year.  Such statements involve certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. Potential risks and uncertainties include changes in applicable regulatory requirements and incentives for production of solar power; and general business and economic conditions, including seasonality of the industry, and other risks described in SunEdison's filings with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. These forward-looking statements represent SunEdison's judgment as of the date of this press release. SunEdison disclaims, however, any intent or obligation to update these forward-looking statements.
