CUSTOMER WIN: CompuCom Taps BMC Software to Drive Greater Strategic Business Value From the Cloud07:45 EDT Wednesday, August 22, 2012 DALLAS (Business Wire) -- CompuCom Systems, Inc., the leading IT outsourcing specialist, has selected BMC Software (NASDAQ: BMC), the global leader in enterprise IT management, to help an array of joint customers realize and accelerate the strategic business benefits of cloud computing. “In a world where every business event is an IT event, cloud computing is more than an IT strategy – it is a business strategy,” said Kia Behnia, BMC's chief technology officer. “As customers migrate business applications and services to a cloud delivery model, it is critically important to stay focused on the business imperatives and not 'get lost' in the IT. Working together, BMC and CompuCom will increase the strategic business value of cloud computing and the speed with which customers can achieve it.” For 25 years, CompuCom has been a trusted guide for customers around the world seeking to better align IT with its business mission. BMC has shared that priority and focus, culminating in the highly successful Business Service Management (BSM) platform and industry-leading Cloud Lifecycle Management (CLM) and BMC Cloud Operations Management solution. “BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management and BMC Cloud Operations Management allow us to deliver a complete, mature solution resulting in accurate chargeback, self-service provisioning, dynamic workload reallocation and bursting to public cloud environments,” stated John Conner, senior vice president, ITO service and cloud sales for CompuCom. “We believe the strong credentials and cultural fit of our two organizations will bring significant benefits to clients who want to change the way they do the business of IT,” said Ed Anderson, CompuCom's chief strategy officer. As cloud adoption grows from initial implementations to broad business use, BMC can shoulder the burden of production workloads. To facilitate a complete cloud service lifecycle, BMC presents end-users with a straightforward “shopping cart” portal and provisions complete, configurable applications. The result is a cloud where everything is intelligently placed and governed according to policies within the environment.
