Four companies take the spotlight among Most Admired Companies in Arizona
On Sept. 5, AZ Business magazine and BestCompaniesAZ honored 40 of the most innovative and exceptional companies in Arizona at the third annual Most Admired Companies Awards at the Ritz-Carlton in Phoenix.
In addition to being honored with MAC Awards, four companies were singled out as spotlight winners in the categories of leadership excellence, social responsibility, customer opinion and workplace culture.
Customer Opinion: CA Technologies
CA Technologies — an IT management software and solutions company with expertise across all IT environments, from mainframe and distributed, to virtual and cloud — manages and secures IT environments and enables customers to deliver more flexible IT services. Here is just one of example of how CA delivered for its customers: The State of Arizona’s Information Services Division (ISD) was under pressure to deliver more service for less. With 25 different groups juggling 200 projects and 10 times that many concurrent tasks at any one time, project management was missing from the state’s ISD. CA Clarity has enabled the state to transform its IT support operation, helped manage task timelines and labor, as well as having the financials and forecasting officials needed to stay on time and within budget. As a result, the state’s executive branch experienced an eight-figure savings, so the software is literally helping to generate the revenue that pays for its own installation.
