*UKHotViewsExtra* BMC: Running and reinventing for its customers – and itself

logoAs one of a group of long established suppliers in the IT Operations area, software provider BMC has struggled to modernise its own business to keep pace with the many changes in the broader tech environment, specifically the move to cloud.

With close to flat growth (0.78% CAGR, 2010-2013, taking revenue to $1.97bn in 2013), the company was acquired by investors led by Bain Capital and Golden Gate Capital in 2013 for $6.9bn and just last month (October 2018) transferred into the hands to KKR for a rumoured $8.3bn. Altered ownership indicates change is afoot and the recent BMC Exchange conference in London provided clues as to how it revitalising itself as a competitor with cloud and digtial transformation credentials.

BMC's portfolio – and most of its revenue – is attached to legacy products and technologies. Shifting the balance towards digital enablers, at pace, is the challenge. Conversations at the BMC Exchange event certainly provided food for thought.
