HOUSTON – March 2, 2016 – BMC, the global leader in IT solutions for the digital enterprise, today was recognized as the leader in the growing capacity management market by Research in Action. In a February 2016 report titled, "Capacity Management SaaS and Software: The Top 15 Vendors," the analyst firm reviewed a selection of fifteen capacity management SaaS and Software vendors using strategy and execution criteria to evaluate how their solutions address current market views, market trends and the future market potential. BMC was declared the winner and leader in capacity management, capturing the highest score in execution and the second-highest score in strategy.

"BMC is highly differentiated and is leading the market when it comes to integrating innovation," said Dr. Thomas Mendel, managing director at Research in Action and author of the report. "Its vision of helping customers establish high-performing end-to-end digital services while optimizing the cost and utilization of IT resources is strong. At the same time, the BMC product portfolio is also market leading and covers the complete value chain of market requirements."
