April 28, 2011 – BMC Software has purchased Coradiant Inc., a provider of end-user experience and Web application performance monitoring, both companies announced Thursday.

The deal has been signed and closed, according to BMC spokesperson Aaron Motsinger. Financial details were not disclosed.

BMC will look to integrate Coradiant’s Web app management capabilities with its Business Service Management platform in an effort to enhance customer end-user experience requirements, according to a company news release on the deal. Paul Avenant, senior vice president of BMC’s enterprise service management division, said in a news release that the acquisition will incorporate capabilities for proactive problem identification for Web applications.

BMC already trumpeted a new release based on Coradiant technology from the acquisition, BMC End User Experience Management, a real-time user behavior monitoring solution for enterprise, cloud and SaaS-based applications.

Jonah Kowall, Gartner research director in IT operations management, says the acquisition should provide new visibility opportunities for cloud distribution and rich Internet applications into BMC’s portfolio, as well as effective technology in the application performance monitoring (APM) space.

“In an operational sense there are strengths in the algorithms used for incident detection, and strong graphical presentation of issues. Paired with BMC’s vision of cloud management, this creates a compelling story for APM as applications become dynamic in their ability to move between corporate data centers and the cloud,” says Kowall.
