On December 2nd BDNA acquired PS’Soft to round out their product offering and follow the industry trend to house a full IT IT Asset and Service Management life-cycle solution within a single vendor offering. We’re reporting this now as we’ve not seen it anywhere else to date. BDNA has for some time had a comprehensive offering in the network and desktop discovery arena with their flagship product Insight. In March 2008 BDNA partnered with Provance Software, a strong contender in the IT Asset Management space, to offer clients of both companies a more holistic solution set through their partnership. ECPweb’s 2008 Annual Review of IT Asset and Software Management tools is a comprehensive review and report on the industry. In that report ECPweb gave PS’Soft a lead compared to Provance in every category. Was this the determining factor that made BDNA take a strong notice in PS’Soft and resulted in the acquisition? One can only speculated in the absence of any press releases from BDNA or PS’Soft.
