Fluensee Integrates with BMC Software to RFID-Enable
IT Asset Management Efforts
Integration with BMC Remedy Asset Management Application Provides Organizations an Automated Way to Discover, Track and Control Corporate IT Assets in Real-Time
DENVER — March 2, 2009— Fluensee, a leading provider of RFID-enabled asset tracking and management solutions today announced integration with BMC Software, a leading global provider of enterprise management solutions and next-generation data center automation software.
Fluensee's AssetTrack™ solution extends the market-leading BMC Remedy Asset Management Application solution to provide real-time visibility, security and control of enterprise IT assets, driving operating efficiencies and business value across the entire enterprise. AssetTrack leverages the capabilities of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology to automate the locating, tracking and monitoring of IT assets, whether those assets are on or off the network. RFID tags placed on IT assets automate the discovery of assets, saving time and labor required when taking inventory or assigning assets.
"Companies rely on BMC Remedy Asset Management to lower IT costs, manage compliance, and improve their return on capital investments with an operational approach to managing the life cycle of IT assets," said Fred Johannessen, vice president, Technology Alliance and MarketZone, BMC Software. "Through the integration with Fluensee, customers now have automated, real-time tracking and notification of IT asset movement, which enables process improvements and provides substantial increases in asset utilization and efficiency. This integration results in greater value realization around asset management."
BMC Remedy Asset Management Application aligns asset portfolios to business needs, and streamlines interactions with other change, incident, and configuration management processes. Fluensee's RFID solution compliments the BMC Remedy Asset Management Application solution by providing organizations with visibility of an IT asset as it moves and immediate updates as its status changes. AssetTrack allows users to set up exception-based alerts to help streamline asset operations and improve utilization, thereby reducing leasing costs and the need to buy unnecessary IT assets.
"BMC Software provides an industry-leading solution for asset management, change management and customer support," said Tim Harvie, Fluensee's president and CEO. "By using RFID to track IT and data center assets, Fluensee adds a real-time view to help customers better leverage the capabilities of BMC's Remedy application. The integration of Fluensee with BMC Remedy Asset Management Application provides automated discovery, reduction in lost and missing IT assets, labor savings, more efficient utilization and ultimately improved asset security."
"User interviews and surveys find consistently that businesses want and need to integrate RFID data with key applications, such as those for IT infrastructure and help desk management, to maximize the business value of that data," said Michael Dortch, Principal Analyst and Managing Editor of DortchOnIT.com. "Such integration can produce significant increases in SLA compliance, IT infrastructure efficiency and responsiveness, and unplanned downtime. Integration of Fluensee's open, scalable and technology-agnostic AssetTrack solution with BMC Remedy Asset Management application can help companies put RFID to work where it makes business sense, and unlock the value of incumbent IT investments."
Fluensee's RFID-enabled asset tracking and management solutions improve the visibility, accuracy, security and utilization of a company's mobile and fixed assets.
