Computer Associates (CA) kicks off its annual bash for customers and partners this weekend in Las Vegas, with a new management team trying to put the company's problems behind it.
Initiatives are expected on managing on-demand strategies and managing Linux as part of a mixed IT infrastructure, with CA chief technology officer Yogesh Gupta giving a keynote on the practicalities of on-demand computing.
Security is likely to be another big area, along with business continuity planning and deploying software as a service.
Sunday night's keynote features interim chief executive Ken Cron and new chief operating officer Jeff Clarke, who will be looking to stamp their authority on CA's strategy.
Other expected highlights include the chance for users to grill former Oracle executive Mark Barrenechea, who is nearing his first anniversary at CA after leaving his position as senior vice president of applications development at the database giant.
Barrenechea, CA's senior vice president of product development, will be one of the senior CA executives handling questions on how the firm will help its customers develop their use of the company's products.
