CA cuts one third of its Melbourne developers

International software vendor CA will make just under one third of its Australian R&D staff redundant as a result of recent acquistions.

Some 31 of the 103 security experts at its Melbourne R&D Lab will be offered alternative positions, outplacement services or severance packages.

CA's Melbourne research and development lab has been responsible for the development of several IAM (Identity and Access Management) solutions including CA Identity Manager and CA Directory, core components of the vendor's IAM portfolio.

The Melbourne Lab has developed new technologies for CA that are patented on a global basis.

CA says the 31 developers are no longer required due to three new acquisitions.

CA acquired ID Focus in October 2008, Eurikify in November 2008 and Orchestria in January 2009.

A spokesperson for CA said these acquisitions created some duplicate roles within the vendor's global R&D operations.

The spokesperson said the Melbourne development labs will continue to develop CA's IAM solutions after the restructure.
