BMC Software has acquired Emprisa Networks, a provider of smart network compliance, change and configuration management systems.
The acquisition of Emprisa Networks will extend BMC's business service management (BSM) and service automation technologies to address complex, multi-supplier network infrastructures.
BMC said the acquisition, for an undisclosed amount, would help customers reduce operational costs and improve service response times through advanced network change and configuration automation.
"Critical IT infrastructures now extend well beyond the datacentre. With the acquisition of Emprisa Networks, BMC extends its service automation strategy to help customers reach IT automation and efficiency goals across the entire infrastructure - inside the datacentre and out," said Jim Grant, senior vice-president and general manager of BMC's enterprise service management business unit.
Emprisa's E-NetAware complements customers' ITIL, BSM and other IT service management initiatives.
