The Bedford Report Provides Equity Research on Amwest Imaging & BMC Software

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Dec 12, 2011) - Cloud computing is expected to grow at a rapid rate in the next year, benefitting several companies in the Application Software Industry such as Amwest Imaging and BMC Software. According to predictions from IDC, in 2012, "80% of new commercial enterprise apps will be deployed on cloud platforms." The Bedford Report examines the outlook for companies in the Application Software Industry and provides research reports on Amwest Imaging, Inc. (OTCBB: AMWI) and BMC Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: BMC).

Earlier this month the analyst firms IDC and Gartner introduced their latest cloud computing and big data predictions for 2012. According to IDC, "Big Data will earn its place as the next 'must have' competency in 2012." IDC has predicted that by 2012 around 2.43 zettabytes of unstructured data will be constructed -- the primary problem will be storing such large amounts.

Gartner warns, however, that "through 2015, more than 85 percent of Fortune 500 organisations will fail to effectively exploit big data for competitive advantage."

"2012 is likely to be a busy year for Big Data-driven mergers and acquisitions," IDC predicted. 2011 only saw a few mergers and acquisitions which affected market equations to a large extent.

Amwest Imaging recently leapt into the cloud scene with its acquisition of Instant Website Technology, whose business is providing relationship building tools and processes that help any business cultivate profitable relationships with customers, all through web based Cloud solutions.

Last week BMC Software announced plans to support Cisco Network Services Manager across its cloud management product line, including BMC Network Automation and BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management.
