CA Technologies Acquires Leading IT Consulting Firm, Base Technologies

CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced the acquisition of Base Technologies, a privately-held consulting firm focused on the management of government IT assets, with leading practices in virtualization management, mainframe technology, security and managed IT infrastructure. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

"The acquisition of Base Technologies further expands our role as a strategic partner and advisor to U.S. Public Sector customers on all computing environments and platforms," said Adam Elster, general manager, CA Services, CA Technologies. "CA Technologies and Base Technologies will provide customers with both deep industry and technical expertise as well as leading management and security products and services for the cloud and virtualization. Together, we will help government customers identify the most efficient use of their investments, manage their large-scale programs more effectively, and determine the best use of virtualization and cloud computing."

The Base Technologies acquisition increases the technical capabilities of CA Services and further strengthens CA Technologies and its alliance partners' ability to execute on all stages of the Federal buying cycle. This allows CA Technologies to better take advantage of a growing $86 billion market for software and IT services (Source: INPUT's Federal IT Services Industry Outlook, 2010-2015, January 2011).
