Computer Associates has announced plans to split its Asian organisation into two groups, appoint a new president to oversee one of the new regions, and enter several sales deals. The Xinhua news agency, which has bureaus in more than 100 countries and regions worldwide, will use CA's Unicenter software to monitor its worldwide network of more than 2,000 PCs in its offices and bureaus. CA also will install Unicenter TNG as the enterprise management software for Taiwan's ADI Corp, a key manufacturer of monitors. The Singapore Stock Exchange also will adopt CA's Opal application to give stockbrokers Web-based interfaces to stock exchange data. The value of the contract was not announced. CA also is dividing Asia into two regions with separate presidents. Present Asia president Chua Tock-ling will become responsible for Southeast Asia and Japan. Huai Rei-jane will become the CA president overseeing greater China and South Korea. He is the former president and chief executive of Cheyenne Software, acquired by CA in 1996.
