CA Founded in 1976, Computer Associates, now CA Technologies, is one of the world’s largest independent software companies. Headquartered in New York, the company specialises in IT management software for mainframe and distributed IT systems. Its diverse portfolio also includes antivirus and Internet security, project and portfolio management, and green computing software.

CA posted revenues of $4.4bn (£2.7bn)for 2010, and has 150 offices in more than 45 countries. Its software is used by most Forbes global 2000 companies.

It intends to maintain simultaneous support for mainframe and distributed/cloud computing users.

The company has successfully recreated itself to leave behind former financial and competition scandals which resulted in one of its chief executives serving a prison sentence for his role in accounting fraud. With a renewed focus on both its customers and R&D, CA aims to lead the way in emerging technologies such as cloud, virtualisation and software-as-a-service.
