CA resurrects CA World user show

After considering cancelling this year's installment of its annual user conference amidst management changes, Computer Associates International (CA) has put its CA World show back on the calendar.

CA said it would hold the show November 13-17 in Las Vegas.

It held its most recent CA World show in May 2004, just three weeks after interim chief executive officer (CEO), Ken Cron, took over from the scandal-tainted Sanjay Kumar.

Kumar stepped down from the CEO position because of concerns over his leadership role at CA while the company carried out an accounting scheme that involved prematurely booking more than $US2 billion in revenue in an effort to inflate quarterly earnings.

He was later indicted on fraud and obstruction of justice charges.

CA filled its CEO vacancy in November with former IBM executive, John Swainson, who scheduled himself for several months of on-the-job training before he formally assumed the position last month.

CA World 2004, held in Las Vegas, drew 10,000 attendees.

Swainson initially said he would cancel this year's CA World and hold the next show in 2006, but outcry from customers led the company to reconsider and pledge to hold a 2005 conference.
