BMC Remedy Improves Quality of Service for State's Official Website

HOUSTON, Nov. 12, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Texas NICUSA LLC, a subsidiary of
NIC, the nation's leading provider of official government Internet portals, is
charged with providing the Texas government with efficient, cost-effective
ways to develop and maintain online services for all Texans via www.texas.gov,
the state's official website. The company is contractually obligated to the
State of Texas to demonstrate mature technology and wanted to move to a
superior IT Service Management (ITSM) solution.

Texas NICUSA chose the BMC Remedy IT Service Management solution from BMC
Software (Nasdaq:BMC) to replace the multiple tools it had in place. BMC
provided a mature, proven, single-vendor solution that met and exceeded its
needs.

"Rather than having 15 different tools specializing in 15 different areas, we
just love that BMC brings it all together," said Lyndon Cain, configuration
manager at Texas NICUSA. "That makes it easier to integrate with our few
software lifecycle development tools."

Cain added, "We've invested quite a bit with BMC. It's been the backbone of
our IT maturation, and we would like to grow with it."

The Challenge

Texas NICUSA needed to streamline its configuration and change management
processes for multiple operating environments with a single solution to
increase efficiency, reduce risk, and improve customer service.

The Solution

Texas NICUSA implemented the BMC Remedy IT Service Management solution to
reduce the risk of downtime, improve service and collect data to identify
those processes most likely to pose problems in the future.

Benefits

With BMC, Texas NICUSA obtained a number of benefits. The company:

  *Reduced risks associated with change management through impact analysis,
    which provided advanced warning about potential problems
  *Improved the quality of service for customers by reducing unplanned
    downtime
  *Obtained metrics for trend analysis, enabling it to proactively address
    processes that required change before they caused problems
  *Eliminated the inherent complexity, inefficiency and training requirements
    associated with multiple change and configuration management tools from
    multiple vendors
