We're Seeking Input

We're writing an analysis of CA's recent acquisition of Orchestria. We'd like to hear from anyone that can help us with the following:

  • Terms of the deal
  • The main business problems Orchestria faced over the last two years
  • How Orchestria sought a buyer, and how the negotiations with CA proceeded
  • External funding received by Orchestria during its history
  • The main challenges CA will face in making the acquisition a success
  • Comparable transactions. We know about McAfee/Reconnex, Symantec/Vontu, EMC/Tablus, and Websense/PortAuthority
  • Related acquisitions by CA: price paid, and price/revenue multiple. We know about Netegrity and iLumin
  • Any Orchestria technology that will be made redundant as a result of the acquisition. Ie, Orchestria technology that won't be used by CA
  • CA's identity and access management revenues
  • Any other information that's relevant!

Thanks and hope to hear from you.

  • Provide messaging and collaborative technologies
  • Archive electronic information
  • Ensure compliance with corporate policy, industry regulations, and laws

Email is the most important type of electronic information that requires control today. Other important types include instant messages, Sharepoint teamspaces, images, voice, video, and miscellaneous desktop files.

We've been in business since 1990--longer than any other analyst firm in our field:

  • Clients include 300 of the world's 1,000 largest organizations, and computer vendors from the largest corporations to small startups
  • While other analysts have come and gone, we've published more than 200 formal reports and 1,100 short bulletins
  • Our news service covers more than 2,000 highly specialized announcements annually
  • We have nine experts in our research team, sharing many decades of experience in our core competencies
