Customers Quickly See Millions in Cost Savings

HOUSTON – BMC Software (NYSE: BMC) today announced BMC Service Resource Planning (SRP), a new suite of solutions that help IT professionals cut costs, more efficiently utilize IT resources, and better align IT spending with business goals.

Born from BMC’s acquisition of ITM Software in June 2008, SRP is now a central part of BMC’s comprehensive Business Service Management (BSM) platform, providing a complete suite of applications necessary to manage the business of IT, including Financial Resource Management, Project and Portfolio Management, Governance and Compliance Management, Human Capital Management, and Vendor Resource Management.

By providing transparency and visibility across 100 percent of IT spend, BMC SRP can help IT executives assign the right people to the highest value work, ensure their IT processes meet compliance requirements, and provide insight to how vendor spending is contributing to business objectives. The result is improved staff utilization by up to 30 percent, cost reductions in compliance activities by up to 30 percent, and decreased vendor spend by as much as 15 percent.

Dennis Gaughan, vice president, AMR Research stated: “An IT resource planning solution can help you gather and analyze information in order to gain the visibility into IT that you need for today’s increasingly global business environment. You’ll have the data to show IT’s value to the business. Ultimately, you’ll have the information you need to make better decisions in managing the business of IT.”*

BMC delivers SRP through the BMC IT Business Management suite, and today announced the general availability of version 3.8, with new features designed to help IT leaders make informed decisions about where to cut costs and where to make investments to produce the greatest business impact.

This significant new solution release delivers enhanced reporting capabilities that integrate SRP with BMC Dashboards for BSM, giving IT leaders quick and actionable access to information about IT demand and supply across assets, people, projects, and vendors. This helps IT executives quickly identify what resources are being used most efficiently. It also extends BMC Project and Portfolio Management with “what if” scenario analysis and ensures a consistent user experience with BMC’s other BSM solutions. This provides BMC customers with an integrated, easy-to-use resource for ensuring that the comprehensive IT operation contributes to business objectives.
