eWeek - Chris Preimesberger – 6/15/17
CA Technologies is like the U.S. Marines in one important respect: It is among the few, the proud and the brave IT product and service companies that continue to help enterprises bring their mainframes into the 21st century.
With this in mind, the New York-based company told eWEEK June 15 that it has acquired a specialized software company to help them do this. It is the awkwardly named, Germany-based zIT Consulting, which makes software that helps administrators optimize the workloads on IBM System z data center mainframes.
Financial details of the acquisition were not made available.
CA does a lot of things for enterprise software developers. It makes tools and provides services of all kinds, including DevOps-related, agile-development products; security, software-as-a-service and automation tools; and it even has an API warehouse. CA has quietly become one of the largest one-stop developer shops in the world.
