Women in Leadership at CA Technologies | Stefania D’Alessandro

As part of our “Bring What You Bring – Women in Leadership” blog series, we’re celebrating several of our women in leadership to find out what they bring to the organization.

Meet Stefania D’Alessandro. She’s a Presales Consultant, Agile Management.

What does a Presales Consultant do?

The first requirement of a Presales Consultant, according to Stefania, is that they have clear, strong knowledge of CA’s solutions. They must be thorough and knowledgeable, as she states the worst mistake someone in this position could make is to assume.

‘If I had to use a metaphor, I would say that Presales folks are a bi-directional translator between business and technology: we solve industry-specific customer challenges through a solid understanding of CA solutions.’

‘In a nutshell, my daily job consists of working closely with Customers, Sales, Business Development, Marketing, Services and Partners to ensure that we have a data-driven understanding of the needs of our customers. Secondly, we must develop a tailored value proposition to our customers, based upon CA’s industry-leading software, as well as unrivalled engagement quality.’

Bring What You Bring

The core philosophy of the ‘Bring What You Bring’ concept is that every CA employee’s own talents, interests and passions are recognized and utilized. The team then builds upon individuals’ strengths, generating the best possible results. When speaking to Stefania about what she brings to CA, this is what she had to say:

‘My former and present co-workers at CA say I bring strong work ethic, reliability and trustworthiness on both professional and personal levels, proactiveness, a detail-oriented and analytical mindset. Not only this but I bring a passion for solving problems, learning and sharing new things every day. I do think that the learning curve (both professional and personal) should always be reasonably steep, in order for us to constantly break our barriers and fight against inertia.’

 Advice for current or future Women Leaders

Stefania is a firm believer in the great important in listening to achieve success. Being approachable and staying focused on success is a vital part in achieving your goals. Her top four pieces of advice are:

  • ‘Make data-driven decisions only (be as unbiased as possible)
  • Practice “selective hearing” to not lose your focus
  • Let your work speak for you
  • Empower your co-workers and promote open dialogue’

 My female inspiration

Stefania said that her biggest female role model is undoubtedly her grandmother, Maria:

‘Born in 1922 in Southern Italy, she soon proved to have an avant-garde mentality, which led her to increasingly resent the narrow-mindedness of that period and to be thrown out of the house. She then emigrated alone and led a life full of adventure (not without sacrifices as well as hard work). The most important things she taught me are the priceless value of education- which highly motivated me to complete my PhD studies in Mathematics- and the importance of being independent (financially as well as emotionally). Last but not least, she taught me the importance of not taking things too seriously, which she kept doing until she died in 2015, aged 93- still amazing, ironic and witty.’

 Women in Leadership qualities

CA Technologies has a core of DNA that align with the company’s mission, to eliminate the barriers between ideas and business outcomes. Stefania has selected the most important DNA trait that she feels will make her a successful woman in leadership at CA Technologies.

‘If I had to pick the top three DNA traits that will make me a successful woman in leadership at CA, they would be:

  • Resilient – I am simply too stubborn to give up.
  • Collaborative & Creative – I feel very lucky to be part of two incredible teams here at CA: the Digital Presales team, based in Prague, and the EMEA Agile Management Presales team. The key to our success is that we always go the extra mile to help each other and to share our knowledge/resources, for which I am very grateful. I am also very proud of the creative results we come up with when we join forces!
  • Results-Oriented – I don’t like shortcuts and I believe success shouldn’t be based on self-promotion, but on measurable criteria, validated by key stakeholders, such as co-workers, partners and ultimately customers.’

Meet Miroslav Nozicka

Miroslav, or Miro as his team and friends know him, has lived in Prague all his life. He is an Associate Software Engineer in the CA office of the Czech capital. He enjoys to nurture his talent for technology in his spare time, as well as practicing martial arts and indulging his interest in cars.

Why CA Technologies?

CA’s testimonials and endorsements by their members of staff, both past and present, helped to convince Miroslav that the company was the perfect place for him. He was attracted by their attitude that their employees are more than just numbers, they are individuals.

‘Before starting at CA, their people, company culture and approach really stood out to me.’

What is starting a new job at CA Technologies like?

Miroslav’s initial impressions of CA’s positive culture lived up to his expectations when he began his onboarding experience. His team welcomed him warmly and were more than happy to answer any queries he had, both about his work and CA in general.

‘The team were very friendly and pleasant, as well as being very helpful and supportive.’

He and his team work together in perfect harmony, ensuring that their collaboration and communication is constant. The best thing about his role is that Miroslav always feels stimulated and inspired.

‘My work is so interesting- I believe it is a vital part of my career journey.’

No day is ever the same, which helps Miroslav and his team feel motivated.

Creative Minds At CA- Sai Eswar Garapati

CA Technologies is extremely proud of the caliber of its employees and celebrates their individual achievements. For us, our employees are our assets who play a great role in determining the company’s success and we believe in valuing, nurturing and retaining them. Hence, we like to support their innovative ideas and concepts that hold the potential to become ‘the next big thing’.

As part of our “Bring What You Bring – Creative Minds At CA” blog series, we are celebrating several of our innovative employees who have brought pride to the organization through their prodigious work.

Meet Sai Eswar Garapati, our ‘Creative Minds At CA’ blog contributor. He is working as a Senior Data Scientist in Agile Operations Business at CA. He designs machine learning and statistical models to help customers discover valuable insights from their Apps, Network, and Infrastructure. He has been a part of the CA family for more than five years.

What interests you in the innovation industry and what is your dream innovation?

We asked Sai what is it about the technology innovation industry that interested him and what did he want to achieve in this area. He said, ” Nowadays every company is a software company, and with this, there is a vast amount of data generated but with very little actionable insights. This challenge excited me to leverage my background in machine learning and statistics to incorporate artificial intelligence in our products which will enable us to move from descriptive insights into predictive insights. My dream innovation is to have our products enabled with Artificial General Intelligence using Deep Learning. It’s an ambitious goal but I shall put in my best because I envision our customers concentrating only on their business and relying on us for the rest.”

How did you achieve this?

We wanted to know what were the steps that he took to achieve this goal and progress in Adaptive System Provisioning. He replied, ” Me and the team were trying to understand how one of our customers is using our products to identify pain points and we figured that they are having downtimes because of huge loads. We then developed a deep learning model which can predict the capacity for the future and enabled them to avoid downtimes. We then showed the results to that customer and validated the model, and they were delighted with the results. After recognizing the IP in this and the novel way in which we solved the problem one of the PRB members suggested us to pursue it for a patent.”

Who helped you with the project and how?

Everyone has a support group that helps them in their journey towards a goal. We asked Sai as to who helped him make this project successful? “Filing a patent is a long process and it requires continuous motivation to follow up. I and my co-author, Ashish Kumar Singh, helped in motivating each other during the multiple review cycles. The PRB members, Sumeet Mathur and Sudhakar Anivella were instrumental in giving constructive feedback and helped us to add additional dimensions to our patent.”, said Sai.

How long did it take to complete the book and were you recognized for it in any way?

We asked Sai as to how long did it take him to complete the patent process and in what way was he recognized for his commendable work? He replied, ” The PRB process took three months and drafting the patent with attorney took another three months. We got it validated with customers and their feedback on its effectivity was the most fulfilling part for me. Besides that, I was recognized as the youngest inventor in CA and received multiple citations from other thought leaders like IBM and Verizon.”

               

What would you suggest to those innovators who are considering CA as an employer of choice to join our organization?

“The leadership always recognized and encouraged me in experimenting and finding new ways to solve difficult problems and helping make CA a thought leader in Artificial Intelligence powered Operational Intelligence (AIOP). I feel grateful to my Manager Tribhuwan Yadav, Architect Rajat Kumar Mishra and all my colleagues at CA for their encouragement which motivated me to achieve another four patents.

CA has an excellent Publication and Patent ecosystem which encourages innovation and empowers to think outside of the box. I recommend CA to all those innovators who love to express their unique ideas and plan on achieving their visions.”

Meet Matthew Song Loong

IT testing has always been a part of Matthew’s life, as his father is in the very same industry.

He applies creative solutions to his work and to understand their design.

‘It’s just like working out how an architect designed a building actually.’

Why CA?

Before joining the company, Matthew had apprehensions that due to CA’s large size, employees would lose their identity and become a just a ‘number’. However, once he started his new job and met his colleagues, he recognized that this was far from the truth

‘When I spoke to the people at CA, I saw that the company was more than just procedures and number-crunching: identity and personal input do matter here!’

What was starting a new job at CA like?

When Matthew started work with CA, he was lucky to join the day before the company’s summer party. Here he was able to get to know his colleagues from each of the office’s buildings and enjoy a relaxing evening with everyone. The team gave him all the support and guidance he required to with his work, primarily the Automic Automation Platform.

As well as being really helpful, the team is transparent about everything that’s going on in the company. Going out and eating together is also very fun and relaxed- something that’s not always the case in other companies!’

Since joining CA, Matthew has recognized that the company is constantly striving to become even more dynamic and diverse. This is something he relishes being a part of.

It’s great to feel that my contribution is part of a much bigger picture.’

CA values their team as individuals, appreciating their professional

development and their personal wellbeing. Matthew has found this balance to be a particularly special element of the company.

Why I Joined CA – Helena Binkova

When thinking of starting the next chapter of your career, starting a new job can be a daunting prospect. How much support will I have? Will I be thrown into the deep end? What will my team be like? That’s why we at CA want to shed some light on what it’s like to start a new job with us with the help of a real-life CA Technologies new starter. Here we have a profile from one of our new Software Engineers, as part of our careers blog series, ‘Why I Joined CA’.

Meet Helena Binkova

Helena has always loved to travel and to seek new adventures- before joining CA in Prague as a Principal Software Engineer she lived and worked in China. When she isn’t working, Helena loves to spend time with her young son. Not only is she a keen programmer, but she nurtures her creativity with painting and photography. She even recently held her own photography exhibition in Prague.

‘I always like to explore new things and try new hobbies. I believe that the path to happiness is to fill my life with activities and people I love.’

Why CA Technologies?

Even before joining CA, Helena knew that they were known to be a very ethical company that offered their employees with excellent benefits.

‘That is the reputation that CA has among people in the IT field. After joining CA I can only support that!’

Upon joining CA, Helen was given the opportunity to establish a new green field project. Working as a Principal Software Engineer has allowed her to combine her skills in programming and technology with her creative flare, which is encouraged by CA. Not only this, but she is able to draw on her strengths and experience as a mother in the development of her latest project-

‘I can be an important part of bringing something brand new to life, supporting it in its first steps and leading it to a phase when it is mature enough to start its own life’

Helena relishes the opportunity to make a difference in her new role at CA, with the support and encouragement of her team.

‘Many ideas I have come up with so far have been appreciated and nurtured. That is great feeling.’

Since joining CA, Helena has also been given the chance to take part in a cross-team effort to prepare a CSS library. This will help her team to unify the appearance of all products in their BU and maybe even in other units within CA.

What is starting a new job at CA Technologies like?

The most prominent feature of Helena’s onboarding experience at CA was the support she received from her new colleagues. She started work at the same time as another colleague and both had their equipment set up ready for them to use before they had arrived for their first day. This meant that Helena felt at ease straight away and had the confidence to start creating work as soon as possible.

‘It was the fastest hire I have experienced! Everyone was very supportive, and we were able to deliver our first feature prototype in ten days. This would not have been possible without such great support.’

Helena has found that the team at CA are not only warm and welcoming, but exceptional in their work. They take the time to complement each other and take the time to communicate, demonstrating their passion for the company and their projects.

‘What I appreciate a lot is that every one of us is not just doing a good job, but we really like what we are doing. It makes a huge difference.’

Why I Joined CA – Gashaw Tsegaye Shawo

When thinking of starting the next chapter of your career, starting a new job can be a daunting prospect. How much support will I have? Will I be thrown into the deep end? What will my team be like? That’s why we at CA want to shed some light on what it’s like to start a new job with us with the help of a real-life CA Technologies new starter. Here we have a profile from one of our young new Associate Software Engineers, as part of our careers blog series, ‘Why I Joined CA’.

Meet Gashaw Tsegaye Shawo

Gashaw is an Associate Software Engineer, based in CA Technologies’ Prague office. He’s originally from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and has an MSc and BSc in Computer Science. He now has over eight years’ experience in this field. When he isn’t working, Gashaw enjoys relaxing by listening to music, watching films and football, as well as seeing his friends. He loves the newly designed offices in Prague, his favourite place there being the recreation centre by the kitchen.

Why CA Technologies?

Gashaw wanted a job that would provide him with invaluable knowledge and skills – this is what first attracted him to CA Technologies.

It is an international company working to improve the way we live our lives. It is a unique place to develop my career in specific fields, such as mainframe and new technologies.’

CA’s use of agile software development methodology was another draw for Gashaw, as well as the opportunity to learn from our experienced software engineers and to share ideas with them. His team all collaborate to solve problems and develop innovative new ideas, which is one of the things Gashaw likes the most about them. Their support and encouragement has been vital in helping Gashaw to adapt and thrive in his new role:

‘I enjoy the sincere appreciation I receive from not only my boss, but also the people I work with. A heartfelt “thanks” goes a long way to improving my productivity.’

What is starting a new job at CA Technologies like?

From Gashaw’s first day at CA he has received invaluable guidance. Firstly, the People team gave him a briefing about the staff, life in the Czech Republic and the general work environment. After this he was briefed about the specifics of his job as an Associate Software Engineer.

‘I got a briefing about the product I will be working on and the team structure. Not only this, but a colleague from the team was assigned to help me with my work in case I encounter any problems.’

CA’s culture and DNA have been developed to help each employee achieve success in their daily work and ensure that both their personal and professional wellbeing is taken care of. This is something Gashaw has found to be particularly enriching.

A Day In the Life at CA: Steve Tait, Digital Demand Strategist

What it’s like to work at CA as a Digital Demand Strategist

When searching for a role or starting your career in the tech industry, you’ll typically find bulleted information on a company’s job description, benefits and culture. We want to go a step beyond and give you insight from a real CA employee. This profile of one of our Digital Demand Strategists is part of our careers blog series “A Day in The Life At CA”.

Meet Steve

Steve Tait is a Digital Demand Strategist located in the CA Vancouver office. He came to CA Technologies in 2013 through its acquisition of Layer 7, where he had worked for two years. He just celebrated his five-year CA anniversary in June.

At Layer 7, Steve ran the Digital Demand Generation side of the Marketing department, and when he first came to CA he worked across business units helping to execute on digital campaigns through our digital agency. He then moved to the Marketing Operations team and worked on executing CA’s global search campaigns across business units and regions.

Now, Steve has come full circle back to API Management, working within CA’s Digital Demand Center running the global digital demand strategy.

“My job is to create digital marketing campaigns that create leads for sales to generate pipeline. I target potential customers through online marketing tactics like search engine marketing, social media and display,” said Steve.

Outside of work, Steve’s main focus is spending time with his family.

“I have two young children, Noah and Stella, who are the light of my life. I coach both of them in hockey – a perfect day for me is spending the day at the rink watching both of them on the ice.

“I have an awesome wife and we love traveling to her home country, Germany, when we get the chance. I love spending time with our German side of the family and enjoying the German culture when we’re there.”

Steve Tait, Digital Demand Strategist

An average day at work

A typical day at work for Steve involves a lot of time on calls with his team, which is spread throughout North America, including Boston and New York.

“The rest of my time is spent managing the digital campaigns from my desk in Vancouver. I generally eat lunch at my desk on the fly – a lot of the folks I work with are on the east coast so often I’ve got meetings scheduled over lunch. And I do work from home a couple of times a week as well. My job is pretty exciting, never boring.”

The best part of the job

Steve says the best part of his job is working with so many extraordinary, smart and talented people on a day-to-day basis.

He also enjoys the Vancouver office. “It’s located right in the heart of Vancouver so there are lots of options for lunch, with food trucks all around, cafés, restaurants and bars. Transit options are good as well for commuting into the office. The trains and buses are within walking distance from the office,” he said.

Many people who are new to the tech industry may not know CA Technologies. We asked Steve what advice he would have for them about them about choosing to work for a lesser-known B2B technology company, rather than a better-known brand.

“The main thing to think about when joining the tech industry and working for CA is, it may be a lesser-known tech company, but we’re still one of the largest global Enterprise Software companies. Working for a company that’s a leader in the application economy, a company whose products are truly driving Digital Transformation on a global scale, is something to be very proud of.”
