Related: Press Release, News
CA Technologies Officially Opens New CA Silicon Valley Technology Center CA 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 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 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 known for being a hub for great technology companies like Intel, Citrix, and Agilent 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.
