Two months ago, HP announced the acquisition of EDS.
One month later, HP Software announced a slew of new service management products, including an updated version (7.5) of Universal CMDB (from the Mercury acquisition).
One month later (today), according to BMC (with supporting quote from an EDS exec), “EDS Asia Pacific Standardises on BMC Software Atrium CMDB to Improve Service Delivery”.
As an ex-colleague pointed out to me, the acquisition isn’t closed yet. Still.
