CA Technologies consolidates Bangalore development muscle
Bangalore, March 15 2015: US-based IT solutions leader CA Technologies has consolidated its research and development strengths in Bangalore to create a new Techgnology Centre that will complement the similar facility in Hyderabad.
The CA Bangalore Technology Centre will leverage Indian talent to focus on emerging technologies, including Mobility, Digital Payments, Big Data, Data Science/Advanced Analytics, DevOps and Security.

“The skilled workforce of India’s Silicon Valley will enable us to develop solutions in emerging domains that will be key to driving our innovation agenda,” added Raj Gopalakrishna, Senior Vice President, Distinguished Engineer and Centre Manager, CA Bangalore Technology Centre.

They brought with them an online Payer Authentication Technology called TransFort which underpins CA's worldwide solutions underpinning online services like Verified by Visa or MasterCard Secure Code.
"Software @the speed of business --that's central to what CA has made its roadmap for the future", Ram said adding that the company known in its earlier avatar for large enterprise-wide solutions, was now consicously addressing the needs of smaller corporations for pay by use or Software as a Service type of offerings in mobility, infrastructure management and analytics.
He pointed to CA Nimsoft Monitor an easy-to-use platform that IT organizations and service providers rely on to manage and optimize their most critical systems and services. The tool is free to use for up to 30 units.
