DB2 UDB Performance Expert, Scott Hayes, to Join BMC Software Team
HOUSTON - (June 23, 2003) - BMC Software, Inc., [NYSE: BMC], a leader in enterprise management, today announced it has acquired DGI, the industry leader in performance management tools for IBM DB2 Universal Database (UDB). The acquisition further strengthens BMC Software's SmartDBATM data management solutions by providing the capability to deliver broader DB2 UDB distributed solutions more rapidly. The Company will also benefit from the extensive DB2 UDB expertise gained through the addition of Scott Hayes to the BMC Software Enterprise Data Management team.
DGI is a privately held corporation founded by Scott Hayes, one of the most widely recognized experts in the industry on DB2 UDB performance management. DGI supplies industry-leading performance management tools for DB2 UDB on UNIX, Linux, and Windows operating system platforms. DGI has a proven track record for providing very quick ROI and significant results.
"The acquisition of DGI boosts our current offerings and elevates BMC to the leading position in the DB2 UDB performance management market," said Bill Miller, vice president and general manager, Enterprise Data Management, BMC Software. "Integrating the DGI technology and functionality into SmartDBA will enable us to provide customers with an exceptional performance management offering that combines the best of both worlds for an unprecedented solution."
The acquisition of DGI significantly enhances BMC Software's DB2 UDB distributed data management offerings. In addition to technological benefits, it brings a strong reputation of excellence and talent that will help BMC Software deliver more DB2 UDB solutions to the market at a rapid pace, enabling customers to better manage their DB2 UDB environments.
"To enable our solutions to reach a broader customer base, it makes sense for us to team with an industry leader like BMC," said Scott Hayes, CEO and founder, DGI. "We believe our mutual customers will benefit greatly from this strategic move as we are able to take the strengths of our respective products to create a solution with a more holistic approach to DB2 UDB performance management."
DGI has two sets of data management products, Classic and Flight Deck. The Classic products provide DBAs with the ability to monitor, advise and enhance the performance of DB2 systems in a Unix environment. By providing greater insight into DB2 UDB technology, the Classic products in turn help BMC Software to enhance the functionality of its SmartDBA DB2 UDB monitoring, tuning and space management offerings with an even stronger management solution.
The Flight Deck product is DGI's next-generation solution for performance optimization. Flight Deck provides DBAs with intuitive performance information for informed decision-making. The combination of Flight Deck and BMC Software's SmartDBA Performance Management solutions significantly improves system availability through earlier detection of issues and quicker, more intelligent resolution of outages if they occur.
BMC Software's SmartDBA data management solutions play a central role in Business Service Management. SmartDBA products intelligently and proactively manage enterprise data, so you can achieve high data availability levels at low cost. The combination of DGI products and BMC Software's SmartDBA solutions will further enhance the ability to identify problems before they impact the business, and resolve them in the order of their business priority.
