Enterprise management applications provider BMC Software has introduced the BMC Identity Management Suite and unveiled a global blueprint for it, focusing on integration.
BMC’s goal is to to offer integrated product suites to tackle regulatory compliance, identity federation and rapid implementation, and support connectivity with in-house and third-party applications.
Central to effective business service management, the BMC Identity Management Suite focuses on the allocation and management of identity and access rights of internal and external users.
BMC said the suite could associate different types of users – such as employees, partners, suppliers and customers – to processes, systems and business services. This fits into the company’s business service management model for on-demand computing, where software is treated as a service.
Somesh Singh, vice-president and general manager of BMC's identity management business, said, "Linking people, processes and systems that support operations while adapting to how business is conducted truly enables business service management."
