Brief History

During the late 1970's, BMC Software founders Scott Boulett, John Moores, and Dan Cloer began a contract programming partnership that operated in and around Houston, Texas. By 1980, the company was incorporated, and officially became BMC Software, Inc. Moores, the company's first CEO, utilized his experience as a programmer with Shell Oil to improve upon the current software available for IBM mainframes, the industry standard at the time. In July of 1988, BMC made its initial public offering (IPO) on the NASDAQ. John Moores can refer to: John Moores - owner of the San Diego Padres John Moores - British merchant. ...

Moores stepped down as acting President and CEO of BMC Software in 1987. He was succeeded by Max Watson. Moores retired as BMC chairman in 1992, and at that time Watson assumed the position of chairman as well.


During Watson's tenure as CEO and Chairman, BMC grew from 500 employees to over 7000. As well, during the same period sales increased from figures equaling less than $100 million in 1987 to $1.7 billion.


Watson was succeeded by BMC's former senior vice president of product management and development, Robert Beauchamp. During his tenure as BMC's President and CEO, Beauchamp has overseen critical business changes, such as the move of BMC's stock to the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), the reorganization of BMC into eleven separate business units; a strategy intended to streamline sales and marketing processes, and the introduction of Business Service Management; an approach for managing IT from the perspective of the business.[4] The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), nicknamed the Big Board, is a New York City-based stock exchange. ...

Focus

During the majority of the 1980's, BMC's focus centered around products that offered improvements to existing mainframe infrastructure. During the late 1980's and early 1990's, BMC engaged in a series of strategic acquisitions aimed to position the company firmly within the highly competitive market of network software. By 1996, BMC had become an industry leader in both mainframe software and network computing software.

BMC Software (731 words)
While BMC may be only a minor success story in a fast-growing market, the developer's steady growth underscores how shrewd platform alliances and savvy integrator partnering can raise the open systems fortunes of an industry underdog.
A number of years ago, as BMC prepared to expand beyond mainframe computing, the developer determined it would be better to integrate its technology with its competitors and complement their functionality.
