BMC Acquires ProactiveNet, Gains Analytics

One of the greatest challenges in delivering BSM products is understanding application and infrastructure topology. BMC's acquisition of ProactiveNet will enhance BMC's BSM offering by adding the ability to automate corrective actions and by providing greater visibility into application performance. While making use of ProactiveNet's ability to integrate other performance-management applications into its BSM console, BMC must clearly articulate to its customers how the acquired technology will be leveraged as part of the BSM road map.

BMC Software has announced it is buying privately held IT systems analytics vendor ProactiveNet. Terms of the deal have not been disclosed.

ProactiveNet makes BSM (business service management) software that focuses on helping IT collect systems data, which is then analyzed for potential problems. ProactiveNet's software can automatically alert IT staffs to problems and suggest remedies.

BMC says it aims to combine its performance-transaction and event-management software with ProactiveNet's to help businesses further automate their IT operations.
