Kinetic Data Inks Partnership With IT Prophets

Partner Program Continues to Grow, Bringing Powerful New Capabilities to BMC Remedy With Kinetic Data's Business Service Management Tools

ST. PAUL, MN -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 13, 2007 -- Kinetic Data, a leading provider of third-party Business Service Management (BSM) tools for BMC Software's Remedy platform, today announced that IT Prophets, a highly experienced, Atlanta-based IT systems integrator and BMC Software Solutions Partner, has joined the Kinetic Data Partner Program.

The Kinetic Data Partner Program is designed to reward partners for growing and expanding their commitment to the relationship over time. The program targets leading VARs and systems integrators who have already partnered with BMC Software. As a BMC Technology Alliance Partner since 1999, Kinetic Data has created a powerful three-way, BSM-centered program in which each party has a strong, mutually beneficial relationship with the other two parties.

"This new relationship with Kinetic Data is a highly strategic, yet natural extension of our existing service portfolio," said Lee Cullom, director of sales for IT Prophets. "We've built a very successful systems integration practice by developing deep domain expertise in BMC's product line, and by specializing in BSM implementations. Our Kinetic Data partnership provides IT Prophets with access to a broad array of new and unique BSM products, and represents a tremendous opportunity to expand the value we bring to our customers."

Kinetic Data continues to expand its market reach by partnering with the elite among BMC's VAR and systems integration partners. The company's extensive selection of software tools and applications enables partners to extend BSM functionality and unify BMC ITSM (Information Technology Service Management) implementations, while it empowers client service organizations with significant new capabilities.

"Today's announcement is another testament to the quality and professionalism of the members of our partner program," said Mary Macdonald, director of marketing and partner programs for Kinetic Data. "IT Prophets is a company of committed BSM experts, who have proven they know what it takes to tackle tough projects and achieve the highest levels of customer satisfaction. We look forward to building a strong relationship with them as they expand their capabilities and their business."
