BMC to Acquire Alderstone

BMC has signed a definitive agreement to purchase Alderstone, a provider of ITSM adoption and modernization solutions. The deal is expected to close in the coming months, subject to customary closing conditions. Financial terms of the transaction are not disclosed.

Expanding upon the companies’ years-long partnership, BMC and Alderstone will be able to offer migration tools and services so customers can quickly and efficiently modernize their service management with the BMC Helix solution.

The acquisition continues BMC's focus on investing in innovation and disruptive technologies. This will be the company’s fourth acquisition in less than 2 years.

Alderstone’s solutions aim to provide a comprehensive, seamless, and error-free way to onboard customers onto BMC Helix—from application discovery, to preconfigured migration packs and data mapping—all tuned to maximize IT performance. Moving from other ITSM solutions or Remedy on-premise, BMC and Alderstone provide expert technology consulting services that leverage industry best practices to help customers decrease risk, reduce costs, and realize their ROI goals.

“With Alderstone, BMC can help customers more quickly benefit from the intelligence and automation of BMC Helix, and accelerate their transformation to an Autonomous Digital Enterprise,” said Ali Siddiqui, chief product officer, BMC. “By coupling the BMC product portfolio with the consulting and migration expertise of Alderstone, we can deliver a unique and holistic solution for their cloud-based ITSM investments to achieve their individual business goals.”

According to IDC, by 2021, more than 90% of enterprises worldwide will rely on a mix of on-premise or dedicated private clouds, several private clouds, and legacy platforms to meet their infrastructures needs. As the ITSM market continues to grow, and cloud adoption continues to drive ITSM disruption, customers need a seamless path and tools to enable upgrades and migrations.

The BMC Helix solution is an end-to-end, cloud-based, service, and operations platform that enables organizations to discover, monitor, service, remediate, and optimize IT landscapes.
