Prague to host CA mainframe centre


Prague to host CA mainframe centre

Antony Savvas

Computer Associates is establishing its first mainframe centre of excellence in Prague , where it will employ around 200 people.


CA said it had chosen Prague because of the highly educated workforce and the strong mainframe education offered at Czech universities. Wages too are lower than in Western Europe.


CA currently has only around 20 staff in both Prague and neighbouring Slovakian capital Bratislava , and the company said it expected to hire all the new staff by this August, mainly from local universities.


The centre will be headed up by CA executive Patrick Pochard, and will focus on software development, quality assurance and maintenance.  


CzechInvest, the investment and business development agency, is providing financial support to the new centre.
