Improve Service Delivery with Cloud Computing Innovations
As a recognized leader in Business Service Management, BMC Software helps IT organizations cut costs, reduce risk, and increase profits. Cisco and BMC Software have partnered to develop integrated joint offerings that help service providers and enterprises easily orchestrate, provision, and monitor service delivery across their data center infrastructures.
A Stronger Alliance for Better Solutions
Cisco and BMC Software's strategic alliance develops and markets a cloud architecture. This architecture closely integrates cloud-based infrastructure and application services for the world's largest service providers. Get vendor-validated, endorsed solutions to meet cloud computing challenges in complex service provider and delivery environments.
The combined solution adds new levels of security and automation to cloud-computing-based service provisioning and management. Tighter linkages between Cisco Unified Service Delivery (USD) and BMC Software Cloud Lifecycle Management (CLM) help build the foundation for cloud computing-based services to:
- Improve efficiency
- Speed time to market
- Improve service quality
- Reduce complexity
- Improve compliance
Cisco has partnered with BMC Software to create a single platform to orchestrate, provision, and monitor applications running on the Cisco Unified Computing System. This integrated approach to management lowers operational and organizational costs by reducing complexity, increasing staff efficiency, and simplifying rapid and frequent changes.
Cisco UCS Manager has been tightly integrated with BMC BladeLogic, Compliance and Proactive Performance Management products, using Cisco's XML API.
Working from a single console, IT organizations can use these capabilities to:
- Create and manage Cisco Unified Communications System service profiles within BMC solutions
- Standardize and automate system administration within heterogeneous environments
- Reduce the risks associated with changes to the IT infrastructure
- Reconfigure their environments much more rapidly than previously possible
Additionally, the integration between BMC BladeLogic and Cisco UCS Manager allows information feeds to BMC Atrium CMDB, and Cloud Lifecycle Manager.
The integrated solutions are supported by Cisco and BMC integrated technical support, professional services, technology development, and joint sales engagement.
