BMC, the global leader in software solutions for IT, today announced that Ovum, a well-respected European research firm, named BMC as a leader in its recent Decision
Matrix: Selecting a Hybrid Cloud and Virtualization Management Solution. The report provides a side-by-side comparison of leading virtualization and hybrid cloud management solutions, looking at IT modernization from a data center infrastructure perspective.
BMC, one of just two vendors named in the Market Leaders’ category, scored over nine out of 10 on average for all the technology dimension categories while recording four category-leading scores in lifecycle, performance, virtualization, and cloud management.
Roy Illsley, principal analyst for infrastructure solutions at Ovum, describes BMC as “one of the clear technology and market leaders, and the only truly independent vendor because of its cross-platform interoperability.” Further, the report praised the Cloud Lifecycle Management solution for its:
— Service blueprints that capture configuration and best practice
information to reduce administrative overhead and accelerate deployments.
— Widespread support for operating systems and cloud platforms.
— Built-in integration to change approvals and CMDB updates, as well as
regulatory and operational compliance policies that automate governance
and compliance and optimize IT agility.
“Ovum’s recognition of BMC as a leader for our cross-platform hybrid cloud and virtualization management solution is a testament to our commitment to innovation excellence,” said Bill Berutti, president of the cloud, data center and performance businesses at BMC. “Digital business requires IT to deliver and provision services faster than ever before. BMC’s Cloud Lifecycle management solution not only helps IT accelerate deployments, but also maintains and automates governance and compliance policies.”
