ISLANDIA, N.Y., Nov. 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CA Technologies (Nasdaq: CA) today announced it has completed the acquisition of privately-held Hyperformix, a leading provider of capacity management software for dynamic physical, virtual, and cloud IT infrastructures.

"Hyperformix strengthens our ability to meet this demand and provide customers with the requirements they need to effectively manage capacity in any environment."
