Computer Associates (CA) has strengthed its position in the Lotus Notes/Domino market by buying Lotus' first ever Lotus Business Partner.
It has acquired QXCom, formerly Distributed Systems Solutions International, for an undisclosed amount.
QXCom has been providing consulting and software products for Notes since its introduction in 1989. CA said it will continue to licence and support all of its QX/Tools product suite, a group of 11 products which assist in the security and application database administration of large scale, distributed Notes and Domino products. QXCom has customers in the US, Europe, and Asia.
CA said the QXCom software will also augment the Unicenter TNG Lotus Notes/Domino option, which enables customers to monitor the components and processes required to support Notes-based applications, including network and systems availability, database replication, and virus protection.
"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," said Marc Sokol, CA senior vice president of advanced technology. "QX/Tools and the company's technical team and marketing staff will enable us to take a major step towards achieving that objective."
