The partnership pairs BMC’s generation Cloud Lifecycle Management with the cloud advisory, implementation and management services offered by Unisys. Both companies will work together to discuss strategy, planning, design, implementation and operational management of cloud computing for various enterprises.
With a strong customer base already established, David Shimberg, senior manager of solutions marketing for BMC, believes the partnership with Unisys will allow the company to deliver more cloud capabilities while expanding its clientele.
“Both companies bring a balance of contributions to the offering,” he said. “BMC is delivering the software and all of its associated best practices. Unisys has experience with BMC’s technology and they bring the added ability to maintain and manage cloud environments beyond the planning and deployment phases, which is a huge value to customers.”
The partnership is aimed at mid-size to large enterprises, especially those that need cloud solutions that can be integrated with existing IT platforms. Shimberg cited Spanish savings bank La Caixa as an example of a client that streamlined its IT services via a combined Unisys-BMC cloud.
