CA Software Licensing

          Computer Associates, CA Licensing

          Computer Associates has two main licensing programs:

          Smart Purchasing Made Easy

          The CA Open License Program (OLP) is an easy-to-use, cost-effective purchasing program designed to meet the needs of businesses of all sizes. OLP reduces costs and streamlines the acquisition, implementation, deployment, and maintenance of CA software and services. And now it's even easier for you to qualify for these discounts, and easier for you to install and to register your new software.
