Service Desk Express

Our Commitment to You, Our Customers

With millions of service requests fulfilled, thousands of processes automated, and hundreds of innovative customer-driven enhancements, you have come to rely on BMC Service Desk Express (SDE) to support your business.  We appreciate your commitment to SDE and will continue to support you through May 2017, after which the product will be retired. Our decision was based on the evolving IT service management market and the rationalization of our portfolio related to our recent acquisition of Numara Software.  Learn more about service desk software and help desk software at BMC.

What does it mean for you as a customer?

  • First, you don’t have to do anything at this time.
  • You can be confident that BMC will continue to support your use of SDE for many years to come.
    • You will be able to pay for and receive support and additional user capacity through May 2017.
    • If you are current on maintenance, you will get product enhancements in the coming year consistent with the current roadmap.

We want to give you, our customers, sufficient time to plan the future evolution of your service and support organizations. That’s why we are providing significant advanced notice of this change. BMC is committed to working with each of you on a solution that moves your business forward — at a time when you are ready. Meanwhile, we will apply our collective experience gained from years of working with our SDE customers to enhance our portfolio of solutions. 

When you are ready, we want you to know that you have choices.

  • Move to the cloud. We will help you move to BMC Remedyforce, the innovative SaaS solution from BMC and
    Key incentives include:
    • Credit for pre-paid, unused maintenance
    • Aggressively priced on-boarding services
    • Additional functionality — without added costs  (for most current customers) — if you commit before June 4, 2012.  The first 100 SDE customers to transition to Remedyforce will receive a credit for on-boarding services.
    • Future TCO savings
  • Stay on premises. If you require an on-premises solution, we have a migration path to BMC FootPrints that takes into consideration your existing SDE investment.
