Global software company CA Technologies has appointed 20-year IT industry veteran Ken Martin as vice-president, Solution Sales, Agile Central, Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ).

Martin joins CA from Intelligent Pathways where he was responsible for the successful delivery of the company’s consulting services for New South Wales.

And, during a 10-year tenure at HP and Compaq, Martin held regional leadership positions in solution sales. He has also worked with Oracle and Toshiba.

“We see massive potential in the Agile Central business in APJ as organisations look to deploy agile at scale in order to deliver upon their digital transformation goals,” said Martin Mackay, president and general manager, APJ, CA Technologies.

“It is exciting to have a leader of Ken’s calibre on board. We are confident that Ken’s experience with agile, coupled with his expertise in consulting sales, will provide the focus required to better help our customers achieve success in their adoption of agile methodology.”

“I am very excited to be joining CA with our technology leadership and market leading solutions," Martin said. "I look forward to working with the talented CA team in APJ to help our customers drive innovation, leveraging our CA Agile Central solutions, to win in the application economy.”

Martin holds a Master of Management degree from the Macquarie Graduate School of Management in Sydney.

CA Agile Central is an enterprise-class platform that is purpose-built for scaling agile development practices, and gives companies the ability to sense, react and adapt to market shifts and operational needs, which CA says results in an “agility advantage over their competitors”.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
