BMC Software, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise management solutions, has detailed its product integration plans for Marimba, a software change and configuration management provider acquired by BMC Software on July 15, 2004. Marimba products provide new and extended capabilities to BMC Software's Business Service Management (BSM) strategy in three key areas: change and configuration management, security management and infrastructure management.


Integration of the Marimba products with existing BMC Software solutions has already begun. For example, Marimba's policy-based configuration capabilities and Remedy Asset Management and Remedy Change Management are now integrated. Other Marimba technologies will be leveraged through future integrations with BMC Software solutions, including PATROL infrastructure and application management solutions, BMC Service Impact Manager, and CONTROL-SA identity management solution.


With the announcement, BMC Software is delivering on the first new element of its unified change and configuration management (CCM) strategy announced last month. BMC Software's CCM solutions are designed to help accelerate BSM implementation by enabling customers to identify and manage changes and configurations in the IT environment and therefore respond more effectively to changing business and IT requirements. The elements of the CCM strategy include policy-based configuration automation; business-aware discovery and detection; process-based change management; and an open-architecture Configuration Management Database (CMDB).
