BMC IT Business Management Suite The BMC IT Business Management Suite provides CIOs and IT leaders with a single integrated solution to help manage the business aspects of running an IT organization. Supporting centralized management of IT financials, vendors, project portfolios, sustaining activities, people, and compliance, the BMC IT Business Management Suite delivers the visibility and control required to improve business alignment, reduce costs, and provide more business value. DATASHEET The BMC IT Business Management Suite Key Benefits » Integrated application suite that focuses on the business management issues of the CIO and the IT organization » A comprehensive and integrated IT management system that enables better IT decision-making and resource optimization » Information access and analysis capabilities that promote transparency and ultimately enable true client collaboration » Deep understanding and commitment to enabling the success of IT Business Challenge With the increasing adoption of the IT Infrastructure Library ® Version 3 (ITIL ® V3), it is no longer sufficient for IT merely to run efficiently. It must also run more effectively. IT executives are under more pressure than ever to run IT like a business — to deliver ever-increasing business value at a lower cost, while also providing better transparency into IT activities, financials, and regulatory compliance. This makes IT as complex and challenging to manage as any other function in the enterprise — if not more so. Yet, for the most part, IT executives manage their business with spreadsheets, homegrown point solutions, and ad hoc reports, even while their executive counterparts in other parts of the organization run powerful enterprise applications. Effectively managing today’s complex IT organizations requires a new level of integrated visibility and control across the activities and functions of IT. The BMC Solution The BMC IT Business Management Suite delivers the only truly integrated approach to managing the business of IT. Built on a comprehensive data model that captures the interdependencies between IT functions, the BMC IT Business Management Suite bridges silos of information across demand, supply, resources, financials, and risk to provide a single system of record for visibility, coordination, and control of IT. The suite enables fact-based decisions that improve business alignment, reduce costs, and deliver more business value. The BMC IT Business Management Suite consists of the following applications: » BMC Service Cost Management delivers comprehensive transparency into the resources and associated costs required to provide IT services. It models service costs and cost drivers — bottom- up, top-down, or blended — and also collects cost and utilization data from a variety of heterogeneous data sources; compares costs against industry benchmarks; and generates a “Bill of IT” for chargeback or “showback” with IT clients. The resulting transparency enables IT transformation by both supporting fact-based IT prioritization and business decisions and by modifying consumption behavior, thus driving business objectives through the use of technology.

    for the CIO. This application delivers “what-if” financial planning, budgeting, and analysis — including total cost of ownership (TCO) for 100 percent of IT spend — thus reducing the time and effort for IT budgeting cycles, while also providing improved financial transparency. » BMC Supplier Management focuses on the single biggest cost driver of IT operations — supplier expenditures. It provides a comprehensive supplier lifecycle management system that drives down vendor costs by eliminating supplier redundancy, proactively managing supplier obligations, and establishing ongoing supplier performance metrics. » BMC IT Controls Management addresses the management effort associated with the myriad of regulatory and compliance demands on today’s IT organizations. This application institutes confidence, provides transparency, and lowers the ongoing management costs associated with compliance initiatives, such as Sarbanes-Oxley 404, HIPAA, FDA regulations, and more. » BMC Business Management Foundation provides a comprehensive inventory for critical, business- focused IT information, as well as a common data repository and source of truth that all BMC IT Business Management applications leverage. This foundation is a federated component of the BMC Atrium CMDB, capturing financials, resourcing, and client-facing value drivers to provide a platform for integrated IT business management.
