Computer Associates Acquires Platinum Technology

from the yet-another-big-deal dept

Computer Associates, who failed earlier last year to acquire Computer Sciences Corp., gobbles up a major player/competitor Platinum Technology for $3.5 billion. The deal will add Platinum’s strong database management tools into CA’s already pretty complete suite. This means CA will remain king in the enterprise management software business for a while.
