"Remedy OnDemand is one of our most successful SaaS platforms, delivering tremendous cost savings for our customers while also enabling reliable, standardized automation of IT demand operations. I'm extremely honored to accept this award on behalf of the entire Remedy OnDemand team at BMC."

Mahadevan was nominated for the Computerworld Premier 100 Technology Leaders by Equinix, a strategic data center and interconnection partner enabling BMC's digital service management SaaS solutions.

About the Premier 100 Technology Leadership Awards
The Premier 100 program was created in 2000 to spotlight individuals who have had a positive impact on their organizations through technology. These are individuals who manage internal IT organizations, mentor and motivate their IT teams and business colleagues, create a positive work environment, envision innovative solutions to business challenges and effectively manage and execute IT strategies. Each year nominees are invited to complete a survey that addresses a number of topics, including their background and experience and their attitude toward risk and innovation. Using Computerworld's IT Leader Index, which is a measurement of how closely an individual matches our definition of the IT Leader, we analyze the data. Each year, 100 honorees are selected to receive this life-time recognition award.
