CA Names Don Ferguson Chief Technology Officer

Before assuming the position of CTO, Ferguson was CA's chief architect

CA, Inc. announced that Don Ferguson has been named chief technology officer, reporting to Ajei Gopal, executive vice president for CA's Products and Technology Group.

Before assuming the position of CTO, Ferguson was CA's chief architect.

"Don is one of the IT industry's most accomplished and respected technologists," said Gopal. "As CA's chief architect, Don has helped establish CA on the leading edge of innovation in virtualization and cloud computing. He has been instrumental in ensuring the superior quality, integration, architecture and functionality of CA's award-winning products. In his new role as CTO, Don's knowledge, experience and vision will help drive CA to new levels of innovation and technological leadership."

During his 18 months at CA, Ferguson has played a key role in the development of new products and in enhancing CA's product portfolio with the development of CA Catalyst, a set of new engines that modernize interfaces to CA products and integrate the products using Web service standards.

"CA has the strongest product portfolio in its history," Ferguson said. "As CTO I intend to work with CA's outstanding technologists to build on that foundation to accelerate the company's drive into a wide array of promising growth areas, including virtualization and cloud computing."

Prior to joining CA in 2008, Ferguson worked at Microsoft in the Office of the CTO and was one of approximately 22 Microsoft Technical Fellows. His projects included exploring the future of enterprise software, with a special emphasis on Web services, Internet application platforms and model-driven development.

Ferguson began his career at IBM where he held a number of positions, including chief architect for the IBM Software Group. In 2001 he was named an IBM Fellow, IBM's highest technical honor, held by approximately 50 IBM Fellows in the 150,000-person engineering team.

Ferguson earned a PhD in Computer Science from Columbia University in 1989. He has contributed to approximately 30 technical journal and conference publications, and has more than a dozen patents
