CA continues its decades-long buying spree with the $350 million purchase of Nimsoft. Usually I advocate that the buying company give the buyee as much independence as possible, as Quest has done with ScriptLogic (many of you probably don't even know Quest owns ScriptLogic).
Nimsoft is in the network monitoring market, in which CA already participates. Nimsoft's edge is that the company can now monitor clouds, and is also aimed at small and medium shops, whereas CA largely plays in the large enterprise space. All this puts greater pressure on Microsoft System Center, as well as a myriad of fine third-party vendors.
In the case of Nimsoft, it should be fully integrated, if only to get rid its wacky name!
