As per the deal, BMC Software implemented its Cloud Lifecycle
Management solution to the carrier's IT ecosystem to help the
company automate its cloud services. The solution leverages the
benefits of BSM platform and also builds up a private cloud
infrastructure that supports IT operations, helps to deliver
business solutions smoothly, and ensures customer satisfaction.
The BSM platform helps to achieve an efficient IT ecosystem by
reducing downtime up to 75.0%, delivering services 30.0% faster,
adapting to a new system promptly and minimizing cost through
centralized supervision. Overall, the cloud solution is now
helping Thai Airways to reduce operational, maintenance and
supervision cost as well as boost customer satisfaction.
BMC Software shares a long-standing relationship with Thai
Airways. The carrier has been using other BMC solutions. With the
bunch of benefits realized with BMC Cloud Lifecycle, the carrier
is now planning to move a step further with BMC Cloud Operations
Management solution, which will complement the Cloud Lifecycle
The popularity of BMC Software's cloud suites are growing. We
also believe that the popularity will encourage the company to
grow its cloud exposure and to capitalize on the climbing demand
of cloud computing. BMC Software's Cloud Lifecycle Management
solution was chosen by several companies in the past few months.
These include cloud services provider Infoplex, telecom company
Swisscom IT Services, cloud-based companies, JDA Software Group
and Quality Technology Services, and IT outsourcing services
provider CompuCom Systems Inc.
The deal flows over the past few quarters are encouraging.
However, weaker expenditure from different governments and
ongoing European economic turmoil will remain headwinds in the
near term. Moreover, BMC's weak third quarter 2013 results have
led to downward estimates revisions by most of the analysts.
Currently, BMC Software has a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell). But not all
software companies are performing as badly as BMC. We would
recommend investors to consider
), which have a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy). Another company,
