ISLANDIA, N.Y., Nov. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CA, Inc. (Nasdaq: CA) today announced that it has completed its $200 million acquisition of NetQoS® Inc., a leading provider of network performance management and service delivery management solutions.

The addition of the NetQoS network-centric response time analytics, flow monitoring, and unified communications management solutions enable CA to offer a robust and comprehensive service delivery and assurance portfolio, spanning network and systems management, application performance management, and virtualization and cloud management.

"NetQoS enhances CA's ability to help enterprise IT organizations and service providers deliver reliable, flexible, and cost-effective IT and business services," said Ajei Gopal, executive vice president of CA's Products and Technology Group. "We can now offer customers the ability to deliver service-centric insight into network, systems and application performance, across physical, virtual and cloud environments, with no visibility gaps."

"Bringing CA and NetQoS together offers tremendous value to organizations challenged with delivering business-critical applications across increasingly complex network infrastructures," said Joel Trammell, former CEO of NetQoS and now senior vice president and general manager, CA. "CA offers a powerful platform to grow NetQoS, both as a stand-alone solution and through integrations with its highly successful service assurance portfolio."

"CA's acquisition of NetQoS represents a significant move to provide infrastructure, application flows and application performance management from a single vendor," said Jim Frey, research director, EMA. "The products that NetQoS brings to the table are highly complementary to existing CA products. Ultimately, the winners will be enterprises and Cloud Service Providers who will have the first solution that tightly integrates flow-based data sources into infrastructure operations and service management."
