With enterprise IT under the gun to better manage and track service levels, it should come as no surprise that CA is strengthening its efforts in the arena while building on other recent datacenter and network management acquisitions -- NetQoS and Cassatt. Datamation has the story.
CA on Monday announced it has acquired Oblicore, a privately held developer of service-level management software used to help businesses handle IT services contracts.
Company officials said the newly acquired company and application suite will improve its ability to set, measure and optimize service levels to meet business expectations across enterprise and cloud-based IT environments. The applications will also extend CA's (NASDAQ: CA) ability to provide vendor management tools from the cloud.
"Oblicore's business-centric approach gives enterprises and service providers better understanding and control over the quality and value of their IT service portfolio," Ajei Gopal, executive vice president of CA's products and technology group, said in a statement.
