Video: CBR meets BMC before it goes private

With plans to be taken private in a $6.9bn buyout, CBR sits down with BMC to talk strategic direction and product roadmaps.


It was announced in early May that systems and service management firm BMC is to return to private ownership in a $6.9bn buyout by a private equity consortium.

As the FT noted, "The deal signals growing interest in mature tech companies as targets for buyouts, thanks to their steady cash flow and the rock-bottom interest rates that have made financing easier." Dell is another example of course.

I met up with BMC’s Kim DeCarlis, CMO and Eric Blum, VP & CTO to find out where BMC sees itself in the market going forward. While there’s not much they could say about the buyout itself as it’s still going through a shareholder vote and so on, I did capture some of their views on BMC’s general direction.
