CA Technologies Officially Opens New CA Silicon Valley Technology Center
SANTA CLARA, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
CA (News - Alert) Technologies (NASDAQ:CA) today announced the opening of its CA
Silicon Valley Technology Center here - a site that consolidates the
research and development capabilities of more than $1 billion in
application, security and portfolio management acquisitions made in the
Bay Area over the past seven years and increases the company's focus on
emerging technologies, including cloud, Software-as-a-Service, mobility
and big data. The company plans to tap into the remarkable technical
talent that the region has to offer and to expand its local workforce by
up to 50 percent.
The new facility was opened by CA Technologies (News - Alert) Chief Executive Officer
Mike Gregoire and dignitaries including Santa Clara Mayor Jamie
Matthews; Carl Guardino, CEO of Silicon Valley Leadership Group; Dean
Garfield, CEO of Information Technology Industry Council and Dana
Fraticelli, CEO of Silicon Valley Boys and Girls Clubs.
"CA Technologies has a strong presence in Silicon Valley, but nobody
really knows it," said Gregoire, who joined the company nine months ago
from Silicon Valley's Taleo Corp. "We're going to change that. We plan
to make Silicon Valley one of our key R&D sites and tap into the rich
vein of engineering talent in the region. We will be a strong player in
the technology community and the community at-large. While CA is a
powerhouse in the IT management and security market serving almost all
of the Fortune 1000 companies, we are in the process of infusing the
company with the speed and start-up energy that is so prevalent in the
Valley. Over the years, we have acquired marquee Silicon Valley
companies like Wily, Niku, Nimsoft (News - Alert) and Arcot allowing us to start off
with top flight talent. We are looking to build on it and establish
ourselves as a preferred home for the best Valley technical talent."
Santa Clara Mayor Jamie Matthews said he is pleased that CA Technologies
has selected his city for the technology center.
"Santa Clara is knownfor being a hub for great technology companies
like Intel, Citrix, and Agilent (News - Alert) Technologies," Matthews said. "We
welcome CA Technologies to the fold and look forward to many years of
collaboration and cooperation."
To extend the news and reach of the new Center's opening, the company
also unveiled a new outdoor campaign focused on raising its visibility
in Silicon Valley and attracting new talent to CA Technologies. "If you
are on the hunt for great talent in the Valley, the 101 is hard to top,"
said Lauren Flaherty, CA Technologies new chief marketing officer.
Flaherty, who previously was the CMO for Juniper Networks added, "The
101 billboards are a welcome mat from CA saying, join us."
As part of its recruitment efforts, the company is looking to hire
developers, engineers, researchers and product managers. A listing of
available positions for the new Silicon Valley location can be found at https://www.ca.com/siliconvalley.
The office will be led by Ram Varadarajan, general manager for the
company's Enterprise Mobility, Digital Payments, Analytics and Big Data
solutions. Previously, Ram was president and CEO of Sunnyvale-based
Arcot Systems, which provided authentication and digital signing
solutions to protect and verify digital identity. Arcot was acquired by
CA Technologies in 2010, and its solutions are now part of the company's
industry-leading identity and access management portfolio.
The CA Silicon Valley Technology Center joins Islandia, NY; Framingham,
MA; Austin, TX; Plano, TX; Ft. Collins, CO; Hyderabad, India; Bangalore,
India; Prague, Czech Republic; Beijing, PRC; and Herzliya, Israel as key
CA Technologies R&D sites.
