Computer Associates and Siemens have struck a deal that will see CA buy the German company's network management tools, while gaining marketing and services support for its Unicenter TNG product.
Under the terms of the deal, CA will acquire Siemens' Transview management product, which it will integrate with Unicenter. Meanwhile, Siemens will bundle Unicenter with its Unix and NT servers, and will market and support it as the systems management platform of choice to its customers.
CA will open development centres in Munich and Paderborn, and all Transview personnel will become CA employees. Siemens will keep its Transview for SAP R/3 business application administration business, including its executives.
The US company said the deal is consistent with its desire to sell more of its products through the channel, and to increase its services and support.
