BMC Software positioned in Gartner's Magic Quadrant

{pp}BMC Software, represented locally by Blue Turtle Technologies, has announced that it has been positioned in the Leaders Quadrant of Gartner, Inc.’s recently released “Magic Quadrant for Job Scheduling” research report.

“We are thrilled with BMC’s performance to date,” says Gray Farrell, Blue Turtle Technologies Executive for Datacenter Solutions. “Our company is committed to sourcing best-in-class vendors, without compromise, to ensure that our clients receive only the finest solutions available.

The recognition bestowed upon BMC reaffirms Blue Turtle’s continuing ability to provide these solutions.” Playing a key role in BMC’s Business Service Management (BSM) strategy, BMC’s CONTROL-M workload automation solution allows customers to automate the execution of processes across the enterprise which is critical to achieving an IT cost reduction. The solution minimises errors and gives IT a higher level of control and flexibility over their batch jobs, which are increasingly integrated with business services and online processing.

As stated within the report, “Gartner inquiries reflect that 70 percent of business processes are performed in batch, rather than real-time.” With batch processing becoming a key component to delivering critical business services, CONTROL-M helps meet the business goals of companies around the world. According to Gartner, vendors positioned in the Leaders Quadrant have a large, satisfied installed base and a high degree of visibility in the market. They offer robust, highly scalable applications, and have the strategic vision to address evolving enterprise requirements.

“We believe this report positions BMC extremely well as a clear leader in the space, especially considering that CONTROL-M is the only solution of its kind positioned in the leader quadrant,” continues Farrell. “The scope and complexity of workload management is growing at pace – to the extent that the inability to accurately understand processes can have a real impact on business operations. From timely delivery of goods, to accurate processing of orders, and onto financial transactions, companies across industries are turning to BMC and CONTROL-M to help them manage their critical IT business processes.” BMC’s newest release of CONTROL-M with Workload Lifecycle Management simplifies enterprise job scheduling and improves service to the end-user, while reducing costs. The solution helps customers manage numerous workloads across a variety of IT environments. CONTROL-M further sharpens BMC’s edge over competitors and strengthens its leadership in IT Workload Automation and BSM.
