BMC Software Expands Global Alliance With Amazon Web Services, Delivers Packaged Cloud Solutions For The Enterprise

NEW YORK, Oct. 11, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BMC Software (Nasdaq:BMC) has expanded its long-standing global alliance with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to deliver a complete cloud services and cloud management portfolio that will give enterprise customers fast, flexible and powerful 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's cloud management technologies, including the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management and BMC Cloud Operations Management solutions, allow organizations like JDA Software Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:JDAS), The Supply Chain Company ® 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, JDA Software. "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."

The new combined portfolio will fully support a wide variety of enterprise workloads including web applications, line of business applications such as SAP, MS Sharepoint and Oracle, as well as high performance computing workloads including Amazon Elastic Map Reduce and Amazon DynamoDB. Enterprise customers will be able to leverage the enterprise systems management and corporate governance they already use today coupled with access to the global scale and performance of AWS.

Brad Kern, BMC's vice president, alliances, 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. 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."
