"CA Technologies solutions help us enhance service delivery and performance," said Mario Bocca, Unipol CIO. "The solutions enable us to increase business agility, reduce risk and lower cost by allowing our IT organization to manage a larger and more complex infrastructure and group of IT assets without having to use additional resources."

Unipol has enhanced service delivery and performance by using CA Infrastructure Management and CA Application Performance Management (APM) solutions to create a high-level management dashboard for the IT department. This gives Unipol IT executives and system administrators up-to-date, integrated performance views of applications and their underlying infrastructure, helping them prevent potential problems by identifying faults and service degradations proactively.

CA Spectrum® reduces for Unipol the time and cost to manage devices by automating network configuration processes, and providing real-time information to address faults before they are noticed by the end user.

With 3,200 sites in Italy connected to its Information Systems, Unipol needs to measure the quality and availability of connections and Web applications. Measuring real-user transactions through CA APM, Unipol can detect abnormalities before they impact the end user, pinpoint root cause and resolve problems quickly.

Another focal point for Unipol is the need to manage the physical, operational and business aspects of their IT investments. Unipol uses the integration of CA IT Asset Manager and CA Client Automation to simplify IT asset lifecycle management and reduce the complexity arising from managing more than 20,000 assets, which include more than 13,000 PCs.
