- CA Technologies Customer Deploys CA Workload Automation and CA Process
Automation to Support Just in Time Production Globally

CA Technologies (NASDAQ:CA) announced that Devanlay, the license holder
for the manufacture of Lacoste branded textile products and accessories, is
using two CA Service Automation (
) solutions to optimize global production planning. CA Workload Automation
( manages Devanlay's scheduling
of workloads in the production planning process. More recently, Devanlay
implemented CA Process Automation (
to automate IT processes, removing the need to use manual scripts.


From the production of the first Lacoste Polo shirt in 1933, Devanlay has
grown into a global business spanning Europe, US and Asia . Devanlay is now
also responsible for global product distribution and marketing which has had
significant impact on their IT infrastructure.

Laurent Caroujat, Head of Planning in Devanlay's Information Systems
Department explained, "Previously production planning was carried out by one
employee for each business and was fragmented. The globalization of our
business has had a significant impact on production and operations across the
entire supply chain. Trying to support just in time production and
fulfillment of orders, forced us to rethink how we plan as a business and
more generally about how our IS support that".

Devanlay required a planning solution that could schedule event-based
workloads across a heterogeneous infrastructure providing self-service for
non-IT personnel. The solution also needed to be scalable to meet the
evolving demands of Devanlay's global expansion.

The company opted for CA Workload Automation, for its speed of deployment
(less than two months) with no disruption to business.

Devanlay recently implemented CA Process Automation. The solution
automates IT processes such as requests with the correct email attachment,
previously performed manually.
