Gives customers the access to IT management capabilities geared to their unique requirements
Business Service Management (BSM) firm BMC Software has entered into a definitive agreement to purchase integrated IT management offerings provider Numara Software.
With the acquisition, BMC will be able to further accelerate the growth of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) business, as well as giving customers access to IT management capabilities geared to their unique requirements.
In addition, the acquisition will create a broad portfolio of IT management offerings and services with flexibility and choice for mid-sized organisations that have around 500 to 5,000 employees.
BMC’s expanded offering will include the Numara FootPrints product; the BMC Remedyforce Service Desk offering; as well as BMC Network Automation as part of the BMC Bladelogic Automation Suite; BMC Atrium Discovery and Dependency Mapping; and BMC End User Experience Management as part of the BMC Application Management Suite.
BMC will now offer Numara’s Track-It! help desk and asset management offering for smaller organisations and these products complement BMC’s offerings for large enterprises.
BMC Enterprise Service Management president Paul Avenant said BMC can now effectively serve the entire spectrum of organisations hungry for IT management with products that truly meet the specific needs of their businesses.
"Numara’s solutions, customer base and sales and channel partners will round out BMC’s market leadership in Business Service Management and focus on customer care and support," said Avenant.
