CA Tries to Explain Sanjay's Continued Employment

CA Tries to Explain Sanjay's Continued Employment

At CA World in Las Vegas this week, Computer Associates found itself having to explain the role of its all-powerful ex-CEO, Sanjay Kumar, since he adroitly managed to avoid getting drummed out of the corps last month by morphing into the company's so-called chief software architect, a loosely defined job.

According to the story retailed, Sanjay's the guy the company's got talking to users and developing, oh, wish lists that can be whipped into CA's technical strategy in concert with CTO Yogesh Gupta, senior VP of product development Mark Barrenechea and executive VP Russ Artzt, whose name is believed to be on the government's list of people it would like ousted.

Sanjay's job description might play better if it weren't for the reports of growing customer discomfit with doing business with a company the government has labeled "corrupt."

CA is also asking people to believe that Sanjay is now reporting to CA director-turned-interim CEO Ken Kron, the one-time space salesman.

Sanjay was quoted as stretching one's credulity by saying "Ken will decide some things differently than I would have. That's perfectly cool with me."
