NEC Partners With BMC Software on Cloud Management

NEC Corporation, a provider of integration of IT and network technologies, announced agreements with BMC Software to join its global Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) program and to integrate software from BMC Remedy, BladeLogic and Atrium product lines into the NEC management portfolio.

NEC is incorporating BMC software components into NEC's MasterScope series of system operations management software, including new cloud management products that began shipping in January 2014.

"NEC has joined BMC, a worldwide market leader of IT management software and holder of an extensive product portfolio ranging from service support to automation to cloud management, as part of promoting the worldwide expansion of our cloud platform management software," said Kiyoshi Otaki, deputy general manager of the system software division of NEC Corporation. "NEC's MasterScope simplifies the complex management of business operations and helps to reduce operating costs. Working in combination with proven BMC software that has been deployed to users throughout the world, I am confident in our ability to effectively respond to the diverse needs of a wide range of users, including enterprises and telecom carriers."

As a new global Technology Alliance Partner, NEC will receive access to BMC tools, so the companies can develop and deliver diverse, proven, and integrated best-of-breed technology solutions to shared customers. Going forward, NEC says it intends to share product roadmaps with BMC.
