ISLANDIA, N.Y., July 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CA, Inc. (Nasdaq: CA) today announced that Seattle Children's has standardized on CA's integrated infrastructure and performance management solution to help improve IT efficiency, assure business service quality and lower costs. The CA solution will help Seattle Children's achieve the benefits of Lean IT by providing proactive performance management and automated fault isolation and root cause analysis for the infrastructure that supports EPIC EHR, Cerner CPOE, and Lawson ERP, among other key hospital applications for care providers.
Seattle Children's selected CA Spectrum(R) Infrastructure Manager and CA eHealth(R) Performance Manager to provide transparent, cross-silo management of the hospital's IT infrastructure, including networks, physical and virtual servers, and databases. The hospital also chose the integrated solution for its quick time-to-value and outstanding return on investment.
"CA differentiated itself from the other vendors we were considering by working closely with us to come up with a practical, cost-effective solution to our IT challenges," said Wes Wright, chief technology officer at Seattle Children's. "CA clearly understands the full spectrum of our needs -- which includes the right services, the right licensing terms, and the right long-term roadmap -- in addition to the right technology."
Seattle Children's began by working with CA Services to implement the integrated infrastructure and performance management solution to support a single application. The hospital plans to roll out the solution across the remainder of its infrastructure and applications in the near future. This modular, repeatable approach will allow staff to build a level of expertise with the solution that will enable rapid implementation in support of future business services.
"Seattle Children's, one of the nation's leading children's hospitals, operates in a highly competitive market," said Roger Pilc, corporate senior vice president and general manager of CA's Infrastructure Management and Automation business unit. "Its ability to provide high-quality care is in large part contingent upon its ability to deliver high-performance business services to large numbers of users within and beyond the hospital and research facilities. CA Spectrum and CA eHealth will be instrumental in helping Seattle Children's achieve Lean IT by helping to proactively prevent and rapidly resolve issues before they affect users."
