Systinet Corp. struck a deal Tuesday with BMC Software Inc., whereby BMC has delivered its first product using Systinet’s Web Applications and Services Platform (WASP) and is working on another, the companies said.

Under the agreement, Houston-based BMC licensed Cambridge, Mass.-based Systinet’s WASP to Web services-enable its products. The first BMC product to be Web services-enabled using WASP is the BMC Impact Integration Developer’s Kit, a new kit for building integration solutions for BMC’s Service Impact Manager (SIM) environment, said Luigi Suardi, manager for research and development at BMC. BMC delivers systems management, application management, database management and service management solutions. The company’s SIM technology is a service management solution that provides real-time service impact management and business relevance information to enterprises, Suardi said.

The new tool aggregates data from components and then calculates impact to services, Suardi said.

“We started in the beginning of 2003 looking at Web services for our own internal needs of exposing BMC products using Web services,” Suardi said.

Suardi said BMC looked at other solutions to Web services-enable the company’s products but chose Systinet because of three reasons: support for heterogeneous platforms; performance; and Universal Description, Discovery and Integration (UDDI).
