CUSTOMER WIN: mobily Extends Relationship with BMC Software to Create a Private Cloud

BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management and Consulting Services ensure a quick implementation

mobily, one of the two largest mobile telecommunications companies in Saudi Arabia, is a regional thought leader in the optimization of IT operations. As such, it quickly saw the benefits of cloud computing and embarked on a major strategic initiative to fully implement cloud and automate its IT infrastructure.

After a thorough competitive review, mobily selected the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management (CLM) solution from BMC Software (NASDAQ: BMC) because of its proven ability to deliver on key business requirements for the telecommunications leader. The company also engaged BMC Consulting Services to ensure a smooth and rapid implementation.

“As a longtime partner of BMC Software, we have been very impressed with the company’s approach on Business Service Management and their best practices concerning the automation of our IT services,” said Medhat Amer, CIO at mobily.

Faisal Bakhashwain, mobily’s data center planning manager, added, “BMC Software’s cloud solution is very straightforward, even for a first-time user. BMC is already producing real business savings in terms of user friendliness and the time needed to help our employees get onboard with the solution.”

The Challenge

mobily wanted to implement a private cloud that would automate service provisioning, provide an easy-to-use interface to encourage rapid take-up by end-users and ensure scalability for anticipated growth.

The Solution

mobily implemented the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management solution to meet these objectives. The company also engaged BMC Consulting Services, including its BMC Cloud Rapid Deployment and BMC Education Services offerings.

Benefits

With BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management and supporting BMC Consulting Services, mobily:

  • Reduced time for provisioning services from three to four weeks to 35 minutes
  • Increased IT productivity by automating manual capacity management processes – such as provisioning – across both the physical and virtual data center environment
  • Eliminated bottlenecks that delayed deployment of new applications
  • Obtained quick, dashboard-driven access to data that enabled better planning for data center power and cooling requirements over time
