CA, NetQoS Exchange Vows

10:10 AM -- CA Technologies (Nasdaq: CA) announced Thursday it has completed its $200 million acquisition of performance management specialist NetQoS Inc. , and, to celebrate the nuptials, has created a wedding video. (See CA Nabs NetQoS for $200M and CA Completes NetQos Buy.)

Now, vendors don't often attempt outright humor, mostly because they're not very good at it, and it can backfire. But I have to hand it to CA -- this is a decent effort, with some pretty good lines, such as "Do you promise never to mispronounce the NetQos name, even on sales calls to Australia?" and, "Do you promise never to make fun of a company whose name is an abbreviated state?"

Well, they made me smile. On a gray Friday.

Check out the video here.

No, not at all, we were just the ones who put the wedding album together!

re: CA, NetQoS Exchange Vows So, you're saying that it's only the NetQos folk that have a sense of humor? :-0

Glad you liked the video Ray! Actually, the demented minds in the NetQoS marketing group came up with the idea and made it happen. It was a lot of fun!
