BMC Software Wins over Portuguese Bank

Houston-based IT applications developer BMC Software revealed today that a Portuguese banking firm has adopted BMC's MAINVIEW and APPTUNE for DB2 solutions. The financial impact of the customer win was not disclosed. BMC identified its new client as Banco BPI, which also maintains branches in Spain, France and Venezuela. According to BMC, Banco BPI is using MAINVIEW for DB2 because of its extensive monitoring and management tools for DB2, which is a relational database management system produced by IBM. APPTUNE for DB2, BMC added, provides Banco BPI with SQL statement performance and DB2 object performance data.
