Computer Associates and Siemens have brought their enterprise-oriented IT management efforts together as part of a wide-ranging strategic alliance. Central to the deal is the acquisition by CA of Siemens' TransView solution, which will be integrated into CA Unicenter TNG. Siemens' TransView development and marketing team, which comprises 150 employees, will become CA staff. CA is to open development centres in Munich and Pearborn, where members of the TransView team currently work. In turn, Siemens will bundle Unicenter TNG Framework with its Unix and NT servers free of charge until March next year, to make it easier for TransView users to migrate to Unicenter. It will also promote Unicenter TNG as its IT management solution of choice. CA will support TransView until September 2000, the company said. In a related announcement, CA said it has released Aim It, Ship It and Network It, its software distribution, asset and inventory management, and network management point tools. The company is also preparing Service It, a workgroup tool for small held desks. ® click for more stories
