BMC Claims $100 Million in Cloud Deals
Cites Virtualization as Key Criterion in Customers' Final Decisions

BMC Software says it has passed the $100 million mark in highly strategic "cloud foundation" deals where virtualization and computing management capabilities were the key element in the customer's final selection.
More and more customers are seeking to unify the management of their physical, virtual, cloud, and software-as-a-service (SaaS) initiatives. Customers typically define the "foundation" for successful cloud computing as the implementation of tightly integrated service management and datacenter automation solutions, the clear prerequisites for subsequent cloud services implementations. BMC has seen a steady strengthening pattern of significant wins in cloud management platform deals.
"I've seen a lot of different trends in the IT space that promised to be revenue catalysts," said John McMahon, BMC's senior vice president for worldwide sales and services. "None of these trends has ever approached the impact that I'm seeing from cloud computing. Customers understand that a unified management platform is foundational to the successful deployment of virtualization, cloud and SaaS. They are making the appropriate investments now to ensure that they can reap all the value that cloud promises to deliver. A lot of them are choosing BMC."
A Rock Star Faculty, Top Keynotes, Sessions, and Top Delegates!
The growth and success of Cloud Computing will be on display at the upcoming Cloud Expo conferences and exhibitions in Prague June 21-22 and Santa Clara November 1-4.
The recent Cloud Expo at the Javits Center in New York City was the largest Cloud Computing conference ever produced, more sponsors, exhibitors and delegates than all other Cloud events of the year combined!
The four-day Santa Clara event will attract more than 5,000 delegates from 48 countries and over 150 sponsors and exhibitors on a 120,000 sq ft show floor, larger than Cloud Expo 2010 East, New York City event!
All main layers of the Cloud ecosystem will be represented in the6th and 7th International Cloud Expo - the infrastructure players, the platform providers, and those offering applications, and they'll all be here to speak, sponsor, exhibit and network.
"Cloud Expo was announced on February 24, 2007, the day the term ‘cloud computing' was coined," said Fuat Kircaali, founder and chairman of SYS-CON Events, Inc. "Cloud has become synonymous with ‘computing' and ‘software' in two short years, and this event has become the new PC Expo, Comdex, and InternetWorld of our decade. By 2012, more than 50,000 delegates per year will be attending Cloud Expo."
