On March 17, 2008, BMC Software announced its intent to acquire BladeLogic, the world’s leading and fastest-growing IT data center automation company. Extending BMC’s Business Service Management (BSM) portfolio to include BladeLogic is the next natural step in the evolution of BSM. The acquisition of BladeLogic will create an IT Service Automation leader unique in its superior ability to deliver what CIOs are calling for: business-relevant automation of the IT lifecycle, with continuous compliance built in.
