BMC acquires NEON’s IMS products

BMC Software has acquired the portfolio of IMS database products and customers from NEON Enterprise Software. This acquisition allows BMC to further enhance its IMS database management portfolio and provide the most comprehensive solution set to best address IT challenges.


BMC has been developing and supporting IMS products since 1982. We are committed to the IMS space, and we look forward to providing innovative technologies that set the standard for performance, availability, and efficiency.


We have been hearing for years that IMS is going away, but it keeps chugging along – and growing – with Web front-ends and other modern touches. What are your plans for IMS? Let us know.
