Held in Las Vegas, Nevada, CA World features more than 500 sessions covering CA Technologies solutions. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet CA Technologies’ top architects, developers and product managers for an inside look at solutions roadmaps for initiatives involving cloud deployments, mobility, big data architectures, innovation imperatives and DevOps.

During “The Kimberly-Clark Approach to New Product Development,” Soin will join Kimberly-Clark IT consultant Douglas Shandonay to discuss how Kalypso and Kimberly-Clark created an iterative development process that helped Kimberly-Clark meet aggressive innovation and expansion targets. Attendees will learn about the processes and technologies that companies need to make good innovation decisions and track results.

For their joint presentation, Sobelman and Soin will discuss how Kalypso’s Nova for PPM® — a practical model based on leading practices in product development and innovation that is integrated into the CA Clarity™ solution — allows CA Clarity users to accelerate the adoption of innovation process management. In today’s difficult economic climate, organizations are challenged to grow their business through innovation but often lack the capabilities or discipline to do this effectively.
