MARLBOROUGH, MA and HOUSTON, TX 7/16/2007 10:15 AM GMT (TransWorldNews)
Entuity™and BMC Software today announced an expanded partnership that enables BMC and their resellers to directly offer Entuity’s Eye of the Storm® (EYE) to current and new customers. As a leading solution for network service management, the award-winning EYE software suite allows BMC to offer their customers a scalable solution to ensure their network infrastructures and services deliver benefit to the business – providing greater choice and flexibility as they implement Business Service Management (BSM). The expanded global partnership is effective immediately.
“We are witnessing a growing need for robust and flexible Network Management offerings,” said Israel Gat, vice president of distributed systems management for BMC Software. “With Entuity’s Eye of the Storm now available through our MarketZone program, as well as the recent acquisition of ProactiveNet, BMC enhances our BSM portfolio of solutions that provide enterprises with rapid value and a unified way to deliver BSM goals.”
EYE complements BMC’s offerings with scalable functionality to maximize network efficiency and performance, and minimize operational expenses. Enabling enterprises to optimize utilization and return on investment from their network infrastructure is fundamental to BSM and EYE delivers extensive historical and real-time network knowledge, providing insight, control and predictability of the network from the core to the edge. EYE’s addition to the Market Zone program gives BMC customers a comprehensive extension to their BSM initiatives supporting the real-time business mandates for organizations of all sizes.
“As one of South Africa’s leading ICT providers, GijimaAst employs technology from both Entuity and BMC in creating vertically-integrated, industry-focused business solutions,” said Pierre van Rensburg, business manager, infrastructure management at GijimaAst. “This new partnership combines complementary enterprise systems management functionality from both companies that will help us deploy solutions that will enhance service delivery and add value to our customers’ businesses.”
“BMC has established itself as a leader in Business Service Management, and in particular—BMC has set the bar high when it comes to integrating and reconciling multiple types of management investments into a cohesive whole – from both a process and technology perspective,” said Dennis Drogseth, vice president Enterprise Management Associates. “By bringing in Entuity’s product suite through this reseller agreement, BMC is shoring up another critical requirement – world class network analytics and detailed networked asset inventory. Entuity’s Eye of the Storm has proven itself as both functionally competitive and in some respects superior to the very best network management solutions in the marketplace today.”
Michael Jannery, president and CEO of Entuity said, “This agreement with BMC is a major milestone in our strategy to establish a robust partner network. We are committed to the success of the partnership and to the mutual benefit our combined solutions offer to BMC’s customers.”
