Melville-based erwin Inc. has bought an Italian company, the “data governance” software maker’s third acquisition since being spun off from CA Inc. in March 2016, officials said.

Financial terms of erwin’s deal for Rome-based A&P Consulting, which closed last week, were not disclosed.

Adam Famularo, erwin’s chief executive, said the company has been integrating its acquisitions to enter new markets and create a comprehensive software platform for its more than 3,000 corporate customers.

Famularo, a former executive at Verizon and at CA, a Manhattan software company formerly based in Islandia, said the platform lets companies track interactions with customers, chronicle software architecture, and harvest and ensure uniform data. The goal: to let executives see how a various decisions involving systems, processes and people would affect operations.

North America accounts for 60 percent of erwin’s sales, he said. Financial services, health care and information services are the company’s biggest markets.

Erwin’s previous acquisitions were two companies based in the United Kingdom: Corso Ltd. in September 2016 and Casewise Ltd. in December 2016.

Erwin is owned by Parallax Capital Partners LLC., a Laguna Hills, California private equity firm focused on software companies.

Erwin moved from Tampa, Florida, to Melville in 2016, shortly after it was acquired by Parallax. It has almost 200 employees worldwide, including about 20 in Melville.

CA acquired erwin in 1999 as part of a $3.5 billion deal for Platinum Technology.
