CA buys QXCOM

Notes is the name of the acquisition game

Computer Associates announced it had bought privately owned Notes software company QXCOM for an unspecified amount. CA already had an agreement with the company to license and supports its QX/Tools product, which is suite of eleven software programs for database administration and security of Notes databases. The acquisition of the company will also mean that CA will be able to integrate it with its own offering, Unicenter TNG Lotus Notes/Domino. CA recently bought Realogic, another company which made its money from supporting Lotus Notes. Said Marc Sokol, a Computer Associates VP: "One of CA's goals is to be a comprehensive source of products and services in management, administration, deployment, enhancement and support of the growing Notes infrastructure." ®
