The Forrester Wave: Data center automation, Q2 2008

Data center automation (DCA) solutions allow IT organizations to automate a variety of workflows that support configuration and change management processes across IT infrastructure.


In Forrester's 80-criteria evaluation of DCA vendors, we found that HP leads the pack because of its breadth of solution in a very competitive DCA market. BladeLogic is in hot pursuit, but with a less compelling suite approach to manage an entire server, network, application, and storage environment.


BMC has a well-rounded offering with a very strong process automation flow thanks to its recent acquisition of RealOps and the integration of that solution into the BMC DCA offering.
