CA Details Platinum Integration, Discloses Earnings

Computer Associates will combine software from recently acquired Platinum Technology with its own to create six suites of integrated products covering such areas as application development, data warehousing, and enterprise data management. Seeking to keep Platinum customers within the CA fold, executives also vowed that CA would continue to support all of Platinum's 200-plus products--even those that overlap with existing CA products.

Under the product roadmap outlined at CA's user group conference in New Orleans yesterday, CA will integrate Platinum development tools such as Erwin and Aion into a suite called Advantage TND (the next dimension). Similarly, the DecisionBase TND suite of data warehousing products will include Platinum's DecisionBase and other technologies. Other suites will include software for enterprise data management, DB2 management, and job scheduling and management. On Monday, CA unveiled a plan to bundle Platinum and CA security products into the eTrust suite. In all cases, CA's Jasmine TND object-relational technology will serve as the underlying integration vehicle.

CA will continue to support other products that overlap with its own, such as Platinum's help-desk software and the Forest and Trees analysis product, by providing customer service and maintenance upgrades. Gupta said long-term plans for those products would be announced over the next three to six months.
