Reston, VA – February 7, 2005 – Netuitive, Inc., a leader in real-time analysis software for business service management, today announced that BMC Software (NYSE: BMC), a leading provider of enterprise management solutions, has licensed Netuitive SI for use within its industry leading PATROL® suite of software. The new BMC Software solution will be branded as PATROL Analytics. PATROL Analytics relies on Netuitive's patented Real-time Analysis Engine to enable automated threshold administration and to deliver Trusted Alarms™, the industry's most accurate and reliable indicators of impending performance degradation. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
"PATROL Analytics is a key capability in BMC Software's Business Service Management strategy, which enables customers to manage IT from a business perspective," said Mary Smars, vice president and general manager, Distributed Systems Management, BMC Software. "Netuitive's technology enables PATROL customers to dramatically speed problem resolution, improve service levels and reduce operational costs and most importantly helps them understand what business services are impacted by performance slow downs. Ultimately, BMC wants to assure the availability of resources needed to meet business goals."
Using Netuitive technology, PATROL Analytics delivers next-generation automation for IT environments. By self-learning and continuously profiling the changing characteristics of a server environment, PATROL Analytics automatically generates dynamic thresholds. It also identifies abnormal conditions with Trusted Alarms, before they turn into service-impacting problems. Netuitive Trusted Alarms represent a composite analysis from as many as thirty performance variables and provide plain English interpretations of system issues.
"More advanced automated analysis capabilities are necessary to evolve performance monitoring to the next generation of understanding true anomaly conditions," says Glenn O'Donnell, program director at META Group. "Features such as statistical baselines for thresholds are now emerging. Any endeavors to improve upon management automation must exploit these new approaches and technologies as they develop."
