“It’s a deal that could be good for both companies,” King said. “I’m not sure how much actual business this will drive in the short-run. But for companies that use Microsoft Windows Server -- and use BMC to manage those applications and data -- this could provide an interesting unified benefit for public clouds while continuing to support internal cloud requirements,” he said.
Other BMC Wins
In other BMC news, the company raised $750 million of debt to pay a dividend to Bain Capital and other shareholders. And just Tuesday the company brought its developer and operations teams closer together in a move to improve workload efficiency up to 80 percent.
“The importance of developers is growing at a pleasant rate as companies seek to do more than just optimize -- make cheaper -- their IT. These companies want to use customized IT to better instrument and run their businesses, targeting growth through projects like mobile apps,” said Michael Cote, research director of Infrastructure Software at 451 Research.
“At the core of many of these applications are batch workflows that are not as developer friendly as one would expect with today’s rapid development cycles. So it’s great to see BMC addressing this important part of customized IT, improving the developer’s lot and increasing IT-driven business productivity," he added.
