With these new apps BMC Software (News - Alert) is making it easier for IT organizations to embrace cloud-based tools that transform the way people work, according to BMC officials.
The new cloud-resident applications add increased layers of depth, visibility and functionality within the affordable simple format of Force.com, salesforce.com’s enterprise cloud platform, company officials said.

According to IDC, the worldwide system management SaaS market will total $1.3 billion by 2014 and the market will demonstrate a compound annual growth rate or “CAGR” of 27.1 percent for 2009-2014.
“The sophisticated, integrated world of IT Service Management is converging with the mobile, streamlined expectations of today’s consumers and BMC ServiceDesk on Force.com delivers on both fronts,” said Bob Johnson, vice president and general manager of the BMC SaaS business, in a statement. “The result is a seamless, cost efficient, cloud-based delivery of IT services that are responsive and revolutionary.”
