ProactiveNet's Flagship Solution Receives BMC Performance Manager Integration Validation

Speeds Identification and Resolution of Performance Issues Within Enterprise IT Infrastructures; ProactiveNet to Showcase Capabilities at BMC UserWorld in San Francisco

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 21, 2006 -- ProactiveNet, Inc., a time-to-value leader in Business Services Management, today announced that its Enterprise Adapter has received integration validation from BMC Software, a leading global provider of enterprise management solutions. ProactiveNet's validation, which was completed for integration with BMC Performance Manager, complements the BMC solution by adding a service analytics layer that speeds IT infrastructure problem identification and resolution. ProactiveNet will be on hand to discuss integration capabilities at BMC UserWorld, Aug. 29-Sept. 1 in San Francisco. ProactiveNet will be in booth 18.

Developed in response to customer requests, ProactiveNet's Enterprise Adapter for BMC Performance Manager collects system-related performance metrics directly from existing BMC Performance Manager solutions, combining these metrics with performance data from user transactions, middleware, databases, and applications. ProactiveNet's Enterprise Adapter leverages and extends the capabilities of BMC Performance Manager by:

--  Delivering high-quality, actionable performance alerts to the BMC
    Performance Manager console;
--  Reducing threshold event console clutter by up to 95%;
--  Delivering early warning and identification of performance problems
    before service levels or users are impacted;
--  Collecting, analyzing and correlating performance data from multiple,
    disparate monitoring tools without increasing event generation or event
    rule management effort; and
--  Solving difficult challenges, such as "brownouts" or intermittent
    performance problems.
    

"To manage IT from the perspective of the business, today's enterprise IT infrastructure must monitor and manage the end-to-end performance of IT service delivery," said Bill Ridlehuber, director of business development, BMC Software. "By linking ProactiveNet's Enterprise Adapter with BMC's Performance Manager, customers can link service performance degradation to IT infrastructure performance in real-time for greater visibility into IT's business impact, ultimately helping to reduce the total cost of systems management ownership while improving systems performance flexibility allowing IT to grow and change with business needs."

"ProactiveNet's BSM solution for BMC Performance Manager complements the depth and breadth of BMC's event correlation and root-cause capabilities by adding a patented service analytics layer," said Ajay Singh, president and CEO of ProactiveNet. "This analytics layer provides an added level of visibility into how IT performance impacts the business. We look forward to discussing these capabilities with attendees at BMC UserWorld."
