CA Technologies acquires Watchmouse

CA Technologies announced its agreement to acquire
Watchmouse, an innovator in SaaS-based monitoring for cloud, mobile and
traditional Web applications. 

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

WatchMouse solutions utilize a globally-distributed
infrastructure of more than 60 monitoring stations in more than 40 countries.
WatchMouse replicates real-user transactions from these locations to provide
rich, up-to-the-minute insight into application performance and availability.

With WatchMouse technology, customers of both CA
Technologies Service Assurance and Nimsoft will gain the ability to proactively
manage the end-user experience around the world;  quickly identify and
resolve application performance issues; and keep cloud vendors accountable for
their service level agreements (SLAs).

Delivered as a SaaS model, WatchMouse solutions provide
these high-value capabilities in an easy-to-use format that doesn’t require
customers to install or manage software. WatchMouse is a 100 percent
subscription-based service requiring no upfront payment and no long-term
commitments. It also enables customers to get up and running quickly.

As companies extend more applications to their customers
through the Web and smartphones, the performance of those applications is
having a greater impact on revenue, customer loyalty and brand value,” said
David Dobson, executive vice president, CA Technologies. By adding WatchMouse
to our industry-leading portfolio of solutions for managing and monitoring IT,
we are enabling these companies to better safeguard the performance of these
customer-facing applications – so they can better safeguard the performance of
their business.”

WatchMouse will bolster CA Technologies CA Application
Performance Management (APM) solution, giving large enterprise customers
comprehensive and flexible options to manage their applications within a single
solution set. WatchMouse will augment the Nimsoft IT Management-as-a-Service
strategy by enabling customers to quickly and easily monitor response times for
different types of business services – from the cloud to the data center.
