Autonomy has announced plans to purchase CA Technologies’ information governance business. The acquisition will see Autonomy incorporate CA’s email management Message Manager and Records Manager records management software into its portfolio, with the company pledging ongoing technical support for both products. Neil Araujo, chief executive of Autonomy iManage, said the deal, which is expected to close in the third quarter of this year, will help to cement the vendor’s position as “an end-to-end information governance supplier”.
