CA Technologies Inc. has opened a new technology center in Silicon Valley, Calif., as the company looks to expand its presence in the area and further develop emerging technologies.
CA intends for the technology center to combine its application, security and portfolio management acquisitions in the area totaling more than $1 billion in order to build up its cloud, software-as-a-service, mobility and big data services, CA Technologies said Monday.
The company plans to increase its workforce in the region by 50 percent and recruit developers, engineers, researchers and product managers.
Mike Gregoire, CA Technologies CEO, said the company wants to establish one of its key research and development sites in Silicon Valley and tap into the area’s engineering talent.
“Over the years, we have acquired marquee Silicon Valley companies like Wily, Niku, Nimsoft and Arcot allowing us to start off with top flight talent,” adds Gregoire.
Ram Varadarajan, general manager of enterprise mobility, digital payments, analytics and big data services, will lead the new facility.
