HOUSTON, July 30, 2009 – BMC Software (NYSE: BMC) today announced that it has been positioned in the Leaders Quadrant of Gartner, Inc.’s recently released “Magic Quadrant for IT Event Correlation and Analysis” research report.

BMC Event and Impact Management – the primary BMC solution evaluated by Gartner in this report – and BMC ProactiveNet Performance Management play a pivotal role in helping organizations establish the groundwork for Business Service Management (BSM). With BMC Event and Impact Management, customers can determine which IT events impact business services and automate the response to solving the problem. This eliminates service disruptions by prioritizing and adding business context around certain events.

“BMC’s Event and Impact Management has improved our entire ticketing process,” said David Courter, senior systems programmer at Mutual of Omaha. “Central to our BSM initiative is understanding exactly how each event impacts various services throughout or organization. This allows us to prioritize accordingly and ensure the business continues to be efficient and productive.”

According to Gartner, vendors positioned in the Leaders Quadrant have a large, satisfied installed base and a high degree of visibility in the market. They offer highly scalable, robust applications that can prioritize events to business impact, and they have the strategic vision to address some or all the evolving enterprise requirements in the areas of ITIL version 3 event management process, root cause analysis, CMDB with IT service dependency mapping, integrating security events, and optimizing the event-to-incident/problem resolution processes, including integration with service desk tools.
