I had a little bit to do with BMC back when it was still a public company. After they went private, BMC hunkered down for a while and focused inwardly as it rebuilt its business. The recent BMC Engage conference was one of the first chances for media and analysts to get a good look at how far BMC has come, and how far it has yet to go. (Disclosure: The company paid my travel and expenses to attend the event.)
At the event I was given excellent access to the majority of the senior leadership team, from CEO (and, it is worth noting, largest individual shareholder) Bob Beauchamp down. It was fascinating to get their view on where the market, BMC’s existing and future customers and the company itself is at.
