CA Technologies is enabling SPs to sell cloud-based services with a sustainable financial model that helps them drive revenue and efficiencies which can help build margin. The solutions and products also help SPs pursue this growth by allowing them to tailor their offerings to highly targeted customers, spanning large and small enterprises, and even consumers.
SPs continue to lead the way in cloud computing and enterprises of all sizes rely on these partners as they take their first steps toward the cloud.
