Re-establishing a strong regional presence has clearly been necessary for CA over the past 3-4 years after a period of mixed AP results and instability in CA’s regional channel partner program. Overall I believe the company is well-positioned for solid growth across the region, particularly as it continues to strengthen its channel partnerships. I expect further partner announcements, along with additional acquisitions, throughout 2013 and 2014 as CA extends its capabilities across all three focus areas.
