BMC acquired Partnerpedia in July of 2013. I was responsible for portions of the technical due diligence.
After acquisition, I was responsible for integrating AppZone (Partnerpedia’s primary intellectual property)
with a suite of BMC products. BMC saw in AppZone a superior user experience. My integration work
delivered more of BMC’s products through the AppZone user experience.
In addition to AppZone, Partnerpedia had intellectual property for creation and curation of marketplaces of
services. This IP contributed to BMC’s new product MyIT Service Broker. My responsibilities for fulfilling
this product launch focused on deeply integrating Partnerpedia’s marketplace technology with BMC’s
