Link: CA Technologies Begins Site, Workforce Consolidation

‘Part of this shift is driven by a site consolidation strategy “to move more of our people into our centers of excellence,” said Gregoire. “This migration of our teams into fewer, larger locations supports our agile methodology.” According the Gregoire, the company has embraced an “agile” model, where employees need to be present in the office to be effective, meaning a number of these migrations will come from satellite offices.’

Vendor survey, but whatever: “A survey of 1,300 executives just released by CA Technologies and Freeform Dynamics finds that while 75 percent recognize that these approaches drive significant business success when implemented together, only a relatively small proportion — about one in five — consider the consistency, depth and breadth of usage of these practices to be high.”

CA Technologies FY2015Q1 marginalia, experimenting with CriticMarkup

Screenshot of markdowning next to rendering

While reading through CA’s recent quarterly conference call transcript, I thought I’d try out an idea I had this morning: using CriticMarkup to DIY what Genius.com does: annotating content. It worked OK, except I didn’t invest time in getting the HTML output right, so it looks kind of crappy – you can see the raw markdown file as well.

I actually tried using Genuis.com as well, but it started acting goofy so I gave up.

I’d love to be able to do more of these, but I need to get the publishing part right. The HTML is actually pretty simple, I just need a good stylesheet and (I’m guessing) some JavaScript. Any takers to help out?
