CA Technologies has announced CA ecoGovernance 3.0, an offering in the CA ecoSoftware suite that is designed to enable organizations to accelerate energy and sustainability business performance with automated data management, analysis and reporting.

The new version includes enhancements driven by the feedback of customers actively engaged in energy and sustainability best practices, CA Technologies says. These enhancements include:
–Real time key performance indicators (KPIs) that leverage automatic metrics management to monitor data streams for increased visibility, and better alignment of energy and resource performance with major business objectives.
–Enhanced analytics in multiple areas, including facility performance normalized to weather data, business travel analysis, and project and portfolio cost benefit analysis specialized for energy, carbon, water and waste reduction initiatives.
–Out-of-the-box survey templates for supply chain and building assessments to quickly gather and process data from external suppliers, or from staff who manage different facilities.
–Enhancements to the GRI reporting functionality, including role-based GRI program management.
CA Technologies says the new version also includes enhanced support for EPA ENERGY STAR integration (which has been available in CA ecoSoftware since 2010) that includes new benchmark trending and site type efficiency analysis designed to help organizations get more from their ENERGY STAR benchmarks, as well as mobile energy and sustainability interfaces for people on the go, which range from survey data capture for roaming field staff to interactive dashboards for executives’ mobile devices.
