Validation of GDCM nlyte® for BMC Remedy IT Service Management Suite enables customers to benefit from integrated Global DataCenter Management and BMC Software Solutions

Del Mar, CA– March 5, 2009 – Global DataCenter Management (GDCM), a leading provider of Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) solutions, today announced that its nlyte® management solution has achieved technical validation from BMC Software for use with the BMC Remedy IT Service Management Suite.  This unique validation integrates GDCM’s nlyte data center management solution with BMC Remedy, the market-leading Business Service Management (BSM) solution.

GDCM’s nlyte data center management solution enables users to initiate and monitor routine equipment MAC (Move, Add, Change) processes within the BMC Remedy IT Service Management (ITSM) Suite.  BMC Software customers now have the ability to select an asset in the data center from the BMC Remedy ITSM Suite, start a workflow process in nlyte to initiate a MAC process, and monitor the task until it is finally flagged as complete.

“The GDCM integration to BMC Remedy IT Service Management Suite allows customers to realize new efficiencies and better allocate resources to support strategy,” said Krishna Prasad, BMC Software’s general manager for Service Support Software.  “GDCM brings significant expertise in managing the physical datacenter infrastructure, providing increased functionality and value to our mutual customers.”

“GDCM’s nlyte solution provides a level of data center asset management and control that far exceeds the capabilities of traditional methods for tracking this equipment,” said Michael Evans, CEO, Global DataCenter Management, Ltd.  “We are very pleased to be BMC Software’s only MarketZone partner for DCIM solutions.  This validation will deliver BMC Software clients significant cost savings through automation, shorter Mean Time To Repair functionality, reduced errors/risk for MAC processes and improved efficiency through the adoption of Information Technology Infrastructure Library best practices.”
