Companies Expand Options for Helping Enterprises and Service Providers Address the Complexity of ‘Cloud Choice’
ISLANDIA, N.Y., August 16, 2011 – CA Technologies (NASDAQ:CA) today announced it has completed the acquisitions of privately-held Interactive TKO, Inc. (ITKO) and Watchmouse B.V. (WatchMouse). The acquisitions expand the breadth of solutions CA Technologies offers enterprises and service providers for using and providing cloud computing to rapidly deliver business services.
The addition of ITKO, a leading provider of service simulation solutions for developing applications in composite and cloud environments, allows CA Technologies to add a new and critical dimension to modern IT management and extend it to encompass the entire service delivery lifecycle. In particular, the acquisition will help customers overcome the limitations of current organizational approaches and break down the silos across development, testing and operations.
The addition of WatchMouse - an innovator in SaaS-based monitoring for cloud, mobile and traditional Web applications - will bolster the CA Application Performance Management (APM) solution, giving large enterprise customers comprehensive and flexible options to manage their applications within a single solution set. WatchMouse also will augment the Nimsoft IT Management-as-a-Service strategy by enabling customers to quickly and easily monitor response times for different types of business services—from the cloud to the data center.
“The additions of ITKO and WatchMouse to our portfolio enable us to meet the growing business demand for rapid time-to-market and lower operational costs, which is driving cloud computing adoption and greater choice around cloud services,” said David Dobson, executive vice president and group executive, Customer Solutions Group, CA Technologies. “Customers have many choices when it comes to managing and securing traditional, cloud and hybrid application environments. With ITKO and WatchMouse, we are in an even stronger position to support a lifecycle approach to successful cloud deployment, including plan, design, deliver, secure and assure.”
