CUSTOMER WIN: Synopsys Keeps IT Projects on Track with BMC Software
Project management and financial planning help Synopsys IT provide better products, service to internal customers
HOUSTON, August 6, 2009 – As a leader in electronic design automation for the global electronics industry, Synopsys, Inc. gives its customers an edge by delivering products quickly with lower cost and risk. Behind the scenes, Synopsys Information Technology relies on BMC Software (NYSE: BMC) to consistently keep IT projects within one percent of budget goals.
“BMC gives us a line of sight into our projects and spend, so we can do a better job prioritizing our work and staying on budget,” said Debra Martucci, chief information officer at Synopsys. “Now we can take a complete inventory of our resources and shift them as priorities change to operate most efficiently. The end result is better product and service for our internal customers.”
BMC’s IT Business Management Suite delivers an integrated view of Synopsys’ IT portfolio in the context of the services and applications the department provides. By centralizing data from multiple sources into a single view, Synopsys IT has better visibility into its resources, finances and tasks. Synopsys uses BMC to track all IT-related projects – from smaller tasks to major application and infrastructure upgrades and specialty projects like mergers and acquisitions.
Synopsys IT is also leveraging BMC Human Capital Management (HCM) to handle, track and deploy IT personnel. HCM tracks project and service hours for Synopsys’ IT staff, contractors and interns to better understand and evaluate how employees use their time and map project demand to workforce capacity. The solution drives down costs and improves efficiency by aligning IT and human resources functions with business objectives.
