"The announcements that are catching the attention at CA-World this year are Linux related. CA jumped on the Linux bandwagon some time ago when it became the first system management vendor to offer Linux support, announcing the bundling of its Unicenter TNG Framework on CDs from a series of Linux distributors; Caldera, Red Hat, SuSE and TurboLinux. CA is now extending its Linux support by offering a full version of Unicenter TNG. It is also announcing a Linux version of its MasterIT web server management software and a Linux version of its Ingres II relational database. The Ingres release follows a successful beta program."

"Ken Farber, CA senior vice president of strategic business alliances said 'We expect that our early and aggressive support of Linux will bear the same fruit for us as did our early and aggressive support of NT, both platforms have had, and will continue to have, a profound impact on how processing power is deployed and distributed across the enterprise.' CA is expecting Linux shipments to grow in line with IDC's predicted 25 percent compound annual growth rate."
