Computer Associates pins hopes on open source

Computer Associates International is looking to the open-source community for help in building its next wave of management software.

The company will announce at its CA World user conference later this month a financial and development commitment to open source, said Mark
Barrenechea, senior vice president of product development.

"Open source is here to stay. We want to encourage innovation and we want to be able to leverage some of the components that are out there," he said.
"We will be supporting a couple of open-source activities at a very large scale level, both financially and through packaging (with CA's products)."
