Accenture and BMC Software have signed two technology agreements, one for the joint development and implementation of BMC Business Service Management (BSM) offerings, and another for the provision of consulting and integration services to BMC’s Professional Services organisation.
Under the first agreement, the two companies will jointly develop, market and implement packaged and custom BSM offerings.
BSM provides businesses with a single, integrated IT automation and management platform and adopting this platform approach enables customers to leverage new technologies such as virtualisation, cloud computing, and software-as-a-service (SaaS).
Both the companies will focus on an integrated IT service management offering (ITSM) based on BMC Atrium Configuration Management Database, BMC Remedy IT Service Management Suite, and Accenture technology consulting services.
Under the second agreement, BMC will leverage Accenture technology professionals to increase the capacity of its delivery and implementation capabilities with an Accenture team providing consulting and integration services to BMC’s Professional Services organisation.
Accenture said that the new team will help implement business service management offerings for BMC and its clients.
