Emphasises importance of Software License Optimisation and asset management in maximising the value of IT services to the enterprise
Maidenhead, UK - July 17, 2014. Flexera Software, the leading provider of next-generation software licensing, compliance and installation solutions for application producers and enterprises, announced today that it has received BMC Software Technology Alliance Program (TAP) validation for integration of its Software License Optimisation Solution, FlexNet Manager Suite for Enterprises, with three BMC Software solutions: BMC Remedy IT Asset Management, BMC Atrium Discovery and Dependency Mapping and BMC Atrium Configuration Management Database (Atrium CMDB). The integrations enable mutual customers to realise greater business value from their IT service catalog, CMDB, asset management and Software License Optimisation solutions - enhancing the overall value of the IT Services team to the enterprise.
"BMC is pleased to announce TAP validation of FlexNet Manager Suite with our three BMC solutions," said Clarence Hinton, BMC Software vice president, Corporate Development. "Validation shows that integrations meet our criteria, and that gives our customers proof of the solution's reliability. These integrations tightly couple industry-leading technology platforms to deliver a stronger value proposition to our mutual customers."
FlexNet Manager Suite includes BMC Atrium Discovery patterns that broaden configuration discovery to collect additional data required for identification, management and optimisation of applications that use complex license models, such as IBM WebSphere PVU licenses. These patterns target software file and package evidence, hardware and user properties.
This enhanced evidence is consumed by FlexNet Manager Suite, ensuring that the software inventory it assembles is comprehensive, accurate and effective for delivering continual compliance and Software License Optimisation. For example, license models frequently are based on an application's underlying hardware platform. Additionally, key operational functions, such as chargeback and show back, are centered on the person or organisation that is using a given piece of hardware. Tying together rich hardware asset information from BMC Atrium Discovery enhances the knowledge base that FlexNet Manager Suite uses to deliver optimisation.
The FlexNet Manager Suite integration with BMC Atrium CMDB includes federated access for comprehensive license analytics and reporting. Additionally, the CMDB is populated with the list of normalised software products per device by FlexNet Manager Suite.
"IT Service management and Software License Optimisation are complementary business solutions essential to managing critical IT business," said Maureen Polte, Vice President of Product Management at Flexera Software. "By combining our strengths, we've demonstrated that we can enhance both BMC Software's and Flexera Software's ability to deliver significant business value to customers. We've shown that when two industry leaders work together to solve complex problems, ultimately the customer wins."
