• Cisco/BMC Alliance Accelerates Cloud Momentum

    Cisco and BMC Software have announced a strategic alliance to create new solutions for highly scalable, secure, multi-tenant cloud computing. The alliance seeks to automate the delivery of cloud services to worldwide customers by offering them a full suite of cloud computing solutions. As part of the strategic alliance, the networking giant and Business Service Management software leader unveiled a new cloud solution, the Integrated Cloud Delivery Platform, designed specifically to meet the needs of large-scale private cloud computing environments.“BMC’s alliance with Cisco will enable our customers with large-scale cloud computing environments to make mission-critical cloud services a practical reality for their demanding businesses and customers. IT organizations can be more nimble, cost-efficient, scalable, and, most importantly, better aligned to the business,” said Bob Beauchamp, chairman and CEO for BMC Software.

    Under the strategic alliance, Cisco and BMC will align product roadmaps, technology architectures, and development efforts to produce powerful and simplified cloud service delivery solutions. These solutions will be supported by joint marketing, testing and certification, services, and sales activities designed to accelerate the adoption of their cloud service delivery solutions.  

    The Cisco and BMC alliance will culminate in the development of the Integrated Cloud Delivery Platform, a new cloud solution designed to eliminate the complex steps currently required to set up cloud computing services. The Integrated Cloud Deliver Platform will unite Cisco’s Unified Service Delivery with BMC’s Cloud LifeCycle Management (CLM) capabilities to reduce complexity and improve efficiency, time-to-market, service quality and compliance. Large scale cloud providers will be able to take advantage of new breakthroughs in cloud solutions, including end-to-end  cloud services, “one-click” provisioning of new cloud services, highly secure, multi-tenant clouds, a single “self-service” cloud management portal, and streamlined simplified operations.

    “The Integrated Cloud Delivery Platform enables our customers to deploy end-to-end IT services running on a cloud infrastructure that spans networks, systems, storage and applications,” said Padmasree Warrior, senior vice president and general manager for Commercial and Small Business for Cisco.

    The alliance seeks to merge Cisco’s understanding of how customers use and build services on the company’s industry-leading IP network with BMC’s innovative software solutions to deliver an integrated system designed to operate in large-scale public, private and hybrid cloud environments.

    “We need such automation levels for responding dynamically and in real-time to the demands of our customers. At the end of the day, the winner is our customer, because these technologies simplify service requests and enhance overall service levels,” said Jose Luis Gamo, head of Cloud Vertical Business Unit for Telefónica.
