News from BMC Education Services
Did you know that three out of four IT projects fail to realize value on their investment? A recent survey indicates that the most important factor for realizing value is user adoption. BMC Education Services has created a solution adoption framework for education (SAFE) to ensure user acceptance of the BMC solutions being implemented. SAFE’s approach is to ensure the right skills are delivered to the right people at the right time.
To complement the SAFE methodology, BMC Education Solution Accelerator (ESA) gives you the ability to plan, execute, and maintain a comprehensive user adoption strategy. ESA lets you easily and rapidly update and maintain documentation, simulations, and training, evolving throughout the implementation lifecycle. View the video and demo for BMC Education Solution Accelerator.

Moving to Cloud Computing? Leverage your BMC Remedy ITSM investment!
Enterprises like yours are adopting cloud computing at a rapid rate for the increased business agility and cost savings it delivers. You know how important ITSM processes like change management, incident management, and the CMDB are to your IT operations management – those processes are just as important in cloud management. A recent Forrester Consulting Survey showed that 60% of enterprises that had implemented cloud underestimated the need to integrate cloud into existing management systems.
As a BMC Remedy customer, you can leverage the investment and hard work you’ve already put in to building up world class ITSM best practices as you move to cloud computing. BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management (CLM) is a cloud management platform for automated, self-service provisioning and governance of IT resources across hybrid clouds. CLM has an out of the box integration into your corporate Remedy ITSM environment. With BMC, you can leverage the service catalog, change management and CMDB solutions that you have already deployed, avoiding the need to purchase additional ITSM solutions while delivering a governed cloud to your business.
