BMC Named a Leader for Next-Generation Application Performance Management in Research in Action Selection Matrix

HOUSTON, Oct. 14, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BMC, the global leader in software solutions for IT, today announced that Research in Action, a leading European research firm, named it as a leader in its recent Vendor Selection Matrix for Next-Generation Application Performance Management. The report provides a comparison of the top 20 vendors of next-generation Application Performance Management solutions.

"Enterprise and business decision makers looking for next-generation IT need integrated solutions that span the whole spectrum from business service to application performance. They need look no further than BMC with its strong and differentiated brand. Its new strategy for next-generation APM is well aligned with the cutting edge analytic capabilities customers want," commented Dr. Thomas Mendel Ph.D. managing director at Research In Action.

Application Performance Management is at an all-time high, and the market is very dynamic and highly complex with many different facets according to the Research In Action Vendor Selection Matrix. A key component of the report is a survey of 1600 IT professionals about the future of APM. According to those surveyed, the top four requirements for next-generation APM are a SaaS delivery platform, hybrid cloud management, analytics and big data, and real-time monitoring with end-user views.

"BMC is thrilled to be recognized as an APM leader by Research In Action for our TrueSight solutions, especially given that 60 percent of the evaluation is based on the feedback from enterprise buyers," said Bill Berutti, president of the cloud, data center and performance businesses at BMC."
