BMC finally makes a move; buys BladeLogic for $800 M


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.

Benefits of the BMC and BladeLogic Combination

  • Agility and efficiency through life cycle of change and change management across all infrastructures
  • Fastest time to value, with up to 90% improvement in operational efficiency in 90 days
  • Application release management — automated lifecycle of critical applications, not just technology — that tightly ties into BMC Remedy Change Management
  • Built-in continuous compliance
  • Automated lifecycle management of critical business services across entire IT infrastructure – physical and virtual servers, applications, network and clients
