BMC analytics release

Acquired software updated

BMC has launched ProActiveNet Analytics, the first product stemming from its acquisition of ProActiveNet earlier this year.

The software pulls data from hardware and applications across a company's environment, and issues IT workers warnings about upcoming performance problems.

BMC touts the software's ability to "learn" how a customer's IT environment changes, and adapt its own performance accordingly. It will integrate with both third-party products and its own IT management portfolio, which includes BMC Event Manager and BMC Performance Manager.

Stephen Elliot, a research director with IDC, said BMC's announcement underscores a growing drive by IT management vendors to inject more business-relevant analytics into their offerings.
