BMC chases new customers with Intelligence analytics service
The 451 Group
With Intelligence, BMC is responding to several important trends in the application- and infrastructureperformance market. It is bringing together business and operations data in an analytics service that can both help IT executives respond to the changing demands on their positions and appeal to line-ofbusiness technologists, a new, albeit uncertain, market for IT analytics tools. Finally, BMC is adopting a more open stance with Intelligence, building the product on open source technologies and embracing data from most any source – moves that may attract customers that might not have considered BMC in the past. While Intelligence has room to grow, BMC has made a good start toward responding to these market demands.

EMA Radar™ for Workload Automation (WLA)
The 2012 EMA Workload Automation Radar Report credited the rising focus on cloud and IT-as-a-Service with raising the importance of workload automation (WLA) and its sister discipline, IT process automation (ITPA). Cloud adoption is certainly greater today than it was in 2012, but it is far from complete adoption across all organizations; only a fraction of businesses utilizing cloud run 100% of their workloads in the cloud. Therefore, cloud is still a significant trend that impacts workload automation and enterprise IT, but it is no longer seen as the radical new technology. Cloud matured and cloud orchestration is beginning to standardize around a few products. In addition, IT-as-a-Service has been largely adopted into the thinking of IT departments, even if it is not as fully-adopted as was first envisioned. Several new trends now produce more disruptive influences on workload automation today.
