BMC Innovations, Customers, and Developers Take Center Stage to Highlight Digital Transformation at BMC Engage
HOUSTON – August 25, 2016 – BMC, the global leader in IT solutions for the digital enterprise, today revealed a comprehensive agenda for the third annual BMC Engage conference, the largest gathering of BMC users, focused on innovations for digital business, customer success stories, and an exciting track and showcase for developers. BMC Engage 2016 will take place September 6-9 at the Aria® Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.
"BMC Engage is where business leaders come together to discuss their challenges, successes, and lessons learned from digital transformation," said Robin Purohit, group president, Enterprise Solutions Organization at BMC. "The digital imperative is clear: go digital or go extinct. Gartner predicted that 25 percent of businesses will have lost competitive ranking due to digital incompetence by 2017. Our mission is to equip our worldwide customers with the innovations and solutions they need to start the digital transformation journey, stay on course, and be successful in digital business."
BMC Engage features keynotes that address this urgent call to action from both a digital business and digital innovation perspective:
- Bob Beauchamp, BMC chairman and CEO, will communicate his vision for digital business
- Robin Purohit, group president, Enterprise Solutions Organization at BMC, will lead a general session about the product innovation at BMC driving digital transformation
- David Rowan, Wired UK Editor-in-Chief, will outline "New Rules of Business: How Technology is Changing the World"
- Sandra Ng, Group Vice President at IDC, will define "Digital IT: From Productivity to Profitability"
An astounding lineup of more than 80 BMC customers and partners will also share key insights and lessons learned about how to fast track digital business using BMC's end-to-end portfolio of Digital Enterprise Management solutions. Last year at Engage 2015, BMC introduced DEM, an integrated set of digital enterprise management IT solutions designed to accelerate digital transformation and help companies innovate faster.
At BMC Engage 2016, the company will outline key DEM initiatives that companies should invest in, and customers will cover a broad range of IT Innovation and digital business topics including:
