For the third year running, CA Technologies has been awarded Partner of the Year at the Riding the Crest Awards. At the same event, CA was recognised for Product of the Year in two categories and honoured in a third.

The Riding the Crest Awards are organised annually by Programmer’s Paradise, a leading reseller in US and Canadian markets with a 25-year track record of providing solutions and support for professional users across the IT industry.
“The Partner of the Year award is significant,” says Gary Lawrence, MD of CA Southern Africa. “This is the third time CA Technologies has consecutively achieved this honour, and it is motivated by the abilities of our software and the partnering model that drives our business."
CA ERwin Data Modeler, a powerful solution for collaboratively visualising and managing data across the enterprise, was named the best-selling product and overall Riding the Crest award winner for 2010, as well as the overall World View winner in the Database Infrastructure Management and Modeling category.
CA ERwin Data Modeler also earned the overall Riding the Crest award in 2004, and has been a Riding the Crest product award category leader every year since 2003.
CA ARCserve Backup, an industry-leading solution for comprehensive data protection, recovery and availability in any environment, was also honoured as the overall World View winner in the Application and Network Infrastructure category.
Finally, CA Threat Manager, a comprehensive solution designed to detect, block and remove a wide range of security threats, was named the top Threat Monitoring and Management product in the Security category.
“CA Technologies continually innovates to help IT professionals meet the increasingly daunting challenges faced by organisations worldwide,” says Lawrence.
“We appreciate the recognition that our innovation has received from Programmer's Paradise. It is rewarding to see how our working relationships with resellers enable so many customers to benefit from our innovative solutions.
“CA Southern Africa supports these and many other award-winning solutions to bring the same levels of support, expertise and product quality that were recognised in these recent honours.”
