Blue Turtle appointed BMC Software Elite Partner

Blue Turtle Technologies (Blue Turtle) has received the accolade of BMC Elite Partner, thereby joining a select group of worldwide BMC solution partners.

Blue Turtle, the largest provider of BMC Software solutions in southern Africa, and a long-time BMC Remedy service provider, has over the past three years expanded the partnership with BMC Software to incorporate the full set of BMC offerings, from service management, service automation and service assurance across mainframe and distributed systems.

Blue Turtle has delivered high growth for BMC Software, with major initiatives in data centre optimisation, enterprise workload management and ITIL IT Service Management. Building on this, the recent acquisition of the Column Technologies SA VAR business also increases Blue Turtle’s footprint significantly.

“BMC has combined ‘best-in-class’ technologies to deliver the most comprehensive and effective BSM (business service management) solution for managing the challenges facing today’s IT executives. This includes next-generation data centre, IT cost optimisation, virtualisation and cloud computing,” says Geoff van den Bosch, Managing Director at Blue Turtle.

“The closer collaboration between Blue Turtle and BMC Software provides access to the BMC laboratories, global IP and best-practice methodologies, resulting in tailored solutions for our customers,” concludes Van den Bosch.
