BMC, Amazon Web Services Extend Cloud Solutions Alliance
BMC Software extends its alliance with Amazon Web Services to deliver packaged cloud solutions to enterprise customers.With an eye on moving deeper into the cloud, BMC Software has expanded its alliance with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to deliver a cloud services and cloud management portfolio that will give enterprises fast and easy access to the power of the AWS cloud. As part of the expanded alliance, BMC will work closely with AWS to offer packaged "JumpStart" solutions that consist of BMC licenses, AWS cloud services, professional services and support. In addition, the companies will work together on deeper product integration and go-to-market activities, BMC officials said. "Building on significant ongoing product integration, BMC will work with Amazon Web Services to deliver bundled solutions targeted at addressing key DevOps, Web application and corporate IT use cases,” said Brad Kern, BMC's vice president of alliances, in a statement. As a result, enterprises will be able to run their complex workloads quickly and in a cost-effective manner. It is a powerful collaboration that will transform how customers deploy and manage their clouds." BMC's cloud management technologies, including the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management (CLM) and BMC Cloud Operations Management solutions, enable organizations like JDA Software Group to extend their existing IT controls and processes to a range of cloud-based managed services.
"As a CLM customer, we are pleased to see the collaboration between BMC and AWS," said John Frazier, vice president, cloud services at JDA Software, in a statement. "At JDA, we are considering options for building out our own hybrid environment, and this alliance gives us the confidence that our BMC management tools will support the full range of functionality needed for us to adopt AWS as a core platform."
