CA has acquired Oblicore, a maker of service-level management technology.
The buy could enable CA to develop IT service catalogue capabilities for customers looking to extend management into cloud computing environments.
Oblicore, known for its service-level management technology, could help CA provide customers with visibility into IT services into cloud computing environments, CA says.
Oblicore partnered with CA and the two vendors integrated Oblicore technology with CA Spectrum Infrastructure Manager, CA Service Desk Manager, CA Wily Introscope, CA eHealth and CA Clarity PPM. The addition of Oblicore's service-level management to CA's management software suite could help CA deliver on technology areas that industry watchers consider key in the era of cloud computing, including IT service assurance.
The terms of the deal weren't disclosed.
