CA Completes Wily Acquisition

Wily Will Operate As A Separate Division Within CA's ESM Business Unit

CA announced that it has completed its acquisition of Wily Technology, a provider of enterprise application management solutions, for $375 million in an all-cash transaction.

The acquisition extends CA's industry-leading IT management portfolio and reaffirms the Company's commitment to be at the forefront of key growth market segments. It also extends CA's ability to deliver on its vision for Enterprise IT Management (EITM), which empowers customers to unify and simply the management of their IT infrastructures, said the company.

Wily's solutions provide end-to-end visibility into customer transactions in real time, and enable IT organizations to successfully manage the health and availability of their critical enterprise applications and infrastructure, thereby helping IT managers to rapidly detect and diagnose application slowdowns and failures.

"CA's acquisition of Wily Technology will further help our customers unify and simplify their increasingly complex IT environments," said Al Nugent, senior vice president and general manager of CA's Enterprise Systems Management (ESM) business unit. "CA is now the only company to provide a complete, 360-degree view into the enterprise IT environment – from end-to-end application service levels to individual infrastructure assets."

CA plans to make Wily's products available both as stand-alone and as integrated components of its ESM and Business Service Optimization product portfolios. Wily will operate as a separate division within CA's ESM business unit.

"A commitment to customer success will continue to guide the Wily solution set," said Dick Williams (pictured), former CEO of Wily Technology and head of the newly formed division. "Our ability to help customers derive maximum value from their enterprise applications is unparalleled. As part of CA, we look forward to accelerating our development and reaching an even wider audience with the most advanced management solutions in the market."

CA will continue to fully support Wily products and will honor all obligations specified in current CA and Wily contracts.
