CA Technologies named a leader in Buyer’s Guide for Enterprise Carbon Accounting and Sustainability

CA Southern  Africa has announced that CA Technologies has been named a leader in the Groom Energy Solutions report, titled “2013 Buyer’s Guide for Enterprise Carbon Accounting and Sustainability Software.”

The report analyses the market for carbon management and sustainability software as a stand-alone product or as a module of an environmental health and safety (EHS)/ enterprise resource planning (ERP) or energy management suite and provides prospective buyers with a vendor market update. The selection criteria were based on the number of customer deployments, technology features, sales momentum, market vision and financial stability.

The report said CA Technologies has secured a number of large, high-profile customers and has “strong offerings for sustainability and energy management.”

CA ecoSoftware helps customers automate data collection, reporting, analysis, actions, and align sustainability projects and initiatives with organizational goals. The solution is comprised of three offerings: CA ecoGovernance for management of corporate energy and sustainability programs, CA ecoMeter for operational energy management in facilities and data centres and CA ecoDesktop for PC power management.

“The market for Enterprise Carbon Accounting and Sustainability software continues to mature and companies are looking for financially-viable vendors with world-class products and a strong customer base,” said Paul Baier, report author and vice president, sustainability research, Groom Energy.

“Based on our research and customer references, we concluded that CA ecoSoftware is a leading carbon and sustainability management product which has tremendous flexibility and links to energy management.”

According to the report, many corporate buyers expect basic Scope 1 and 2 carbon tracking, water and waste modules, and a reporting dashboard, in an easy-to-use, proven system. More advanced companies also expect support for supply chain surveys, energy management, EHS modules and integration with ERP systems.

Andrea Lodolo, CTO, CA Southern Africa, says this third-party validation bears testament CA’s commitment to help organisations to manage resources more efficiently for lower costs, reduced environmental impact and accelerating energy and sustainability management efforts.  “These solutions hold immense potential for South African companies particularly in light of the challenges we face in this country in the energy sector,” says Lodolo.

The report also stated that the dominant purchasing drivers for enterprise carbon accounting and sustainability software have remained constant and include: 

• Requests from top customers for annual environmental data.

• A desire to enhance company image and increase brand loyalty.

• Cost savings from improved energy management.
