) won a new order from the U.S. Navy. After a look at the
available products in the market, the U.S. Navy selected the
company's BMC Remedy IT Service Management Suite leading to
better management of the company's IT capabilities.
The BMC Remedy IT Service Management Suite has been accepted
by companies across the globe as it offers a comprehensive and
scalable solution at a lower cost. This product will now deliver
a single software solution to the NAVY 311, which will be
centrally managed by the technology company but the
implementation of this new technology will de-centralize the
network of fleet support providers. After the implementation of
the suite, the navy would be able to lower its technology cost to
a considerable extent.
The analytics solution offered by BMC will help improve
decisions on persistent problems by offering enhanced business
intelligence. The analytics solution will help to "push" critical
information to different customer groups in order to make
decisions like planned expenditure and operations. This is a
viable business proposition for BMC as it allows the company to
earn revenue on a recurring basis.
BMC has been providing solutions to many companies. It
recently delivered a streamlined Application Performance
Management (APM) solution for AWS customers. BMC's Application
Diagnostics will become available in the AWS Marketplace, in a
predetermined format, which will ultimately run on the
) Enterprise Linux (RHEL) platform.
This apart, the company has also provided solutions to Thai
Airways, Infoplex Telecom Company, Swisscom IT Services, JDA
Software Group and Quality Technology Services, as well as IT
outsourcing services provider CompuCom Systems Inc.
Deal wins are visible as this is the fourth consecutive deal
won by the company in 2013, adding value to the company's
revenue, but weaker technology expenditure by different
governments and ongoing European economic turmoil will remain
headwinds in the near term.
Again, a different cause for concern would be the use of the
open source software by different companies. Although BMC has
been successful in incorporating some open source software in its
product portfolio, it has not been able to add substantially to
its business volume. Currently,
has a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell).
We would recommend investors to consider
). While Symantec carries a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), Compuware
and CA carry a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
