Integration of StreamStep’s process management capabilities into BMC’s ARA offering
BMC Software, IT management services provider, has acquired StreamStep, a business software provider focused on accelerating enterprise application delivery and improving release quality.
The acquisition is expected to expand BMC’s ongoing efforts to support seamless application management from development to production, by the integration of StreamStep’s process management capabilities into BMC’s Application Release Automation (ARA) offering.
BMC vice president and general manager of Cloud and Service Operations Scott Fulton said with the move to more cloud computing, development is producing business application changes at breakneck speed, and this magnifies the challenges with current, often manual scripted processes.
"Without a shift to an automated release process, the result is costly bottlenecks in deploying new and updated applications while also increasing the frequency of unexpected outages," Fulton said.
"With StreamStep, BMC is the only company that can provide complete end-to-end application release capabilities, without changing current processes, and enables IT organisations to provide an end user experience that delights their customers."
The new BMC Release Process Management offering based on StreamStep’s technology directly addresses DevOps requirements, and will streamline and automate release activities from development to production, enabling capture, modelling and management of current application release processes.
BMC Release Process Management is part of the BMC Application Release Automation offering that eliminates change, configuration and release integration and hand-off issues by providing market-leading automation capabilities in process management, environment management, deployment management, androot cause analysis.
