Old Dog, Old Tricks

CA is up to its old tricks. The company formerly known as Computer Associates is buying another software company and its customer base, this time paying $375 million for Wily Technology Inc., which makes applications that manage other apps. DaimlerChrysler uses Wily software to manage its DealerConnect dealer-management system, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide uses Wily's software to keep its online reservation systems humming, and Federal Express has deployed it to ensure that FedEx.com, which processes 1 million packages online per day, doesn't crash. It seems the new CA isn't all that different from the old one.
