BELLEVUE, Wash., Aug. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Apptio®, the leading provider of cloud-based Technology Business Management (TBM) software, today announced the expansion of its Apptio Technology Alliance Program. This ecosystem of innovative and compatible technology partners will allow joint customers to comprehensively manage the cost, quality and value of the IT investments. Apptio is proud to partner with organizations like BDNA, BMC, Cherwell, EasyVista, SelectHub, Tableau, Planview, and 6fusion to shape the future of IT.
"At Apptio, we recognize there are many successful software vendors who provide technology that is complementary to Apptio's core TBM applications," said Stan Shull, Vice President of Business Development. "Through this program, we aim to bring our partners to the forefront of the key decision processes that technology leaders make when managing the business of IT."
The Apptio Technology Alliance Program is a specialized ecosystem within Apptio's broader Partner Community, focused on the specific needs and goals of technology partners. In many cases, these vendors provide data and insights that feed into Apptio's TBM applications. Some of the world's leading organizations have contracted with Apptio to calculate and analyze over $150 billion in annual IT spend through these cost transparency and planning applications. Select vendors also provide functionality or capabilities that complement key TBM processes by enabling joint use cases.
"With the technical integration of Technopedia into Apptio, joint customers can now leverage BDNA's rich data repository and use it to create a more accurate picture of IT spend," said Walker White, BDNA President. "This strategic partnership marries the defacto standard for enterprise IT data from BDNA with industry leading ability to understand and manage the cost, quality and value of IT services from Apptio. It's a great match for our customers, and we look forward to expanding the relationship."
Members of the invitation-only program have an opportunity to build a relationship with Apptio, pursue joint marketing opportunities and help define the future of TBM. Apptio is only accepting a limited number of technology partners at this time.
