CSC's Managed Clients to Receive Support for Mission Critical
Applications


HOUSTON - (March 26, 2001)- BMC Software, Inc. [NYSE: BMC], the leading
provider of e-business systems management, today announced a five year
global licensing agreement with Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) [NYSE:
CSC], one of the world's leading consulting and IT services firms, to
support its clients' growth and service demands. Under the terms of the
agreement signed in December 2000, CSC will have the ability to globally
deploy BMC Software's service level management solutions to its clients.
These solutions support mission critical applications for CSC's Global
Infrastructure Services Group (GIS) and all other CSC business units in
support of their managed clients.

The use of BMC Software's solutions will enhance CSC's availability of
complex applications, overall systems availability and offer end-to-end
management of e-business transactions. BMC Software solutions will
monitor
and manage all the technology components associated with these
transactions,
and will enable CSC to ensure its clients are getting the level of service
required while leveraging CSC's global operational and administrative
initiatives to reduce costs.

"BMC Software's solutions will help us leverage our infrastructure and our
outsourced clients' infrastructure by quickly adding a high degree of
mission-critical application manageability," said Jeff Andrew, vice
president of CSC's GIS Global Production Operations. "Our long
association
with BMC Software has been extended for five years because of their
commitment and staying power to support our diverse platforms and
worldwide
applications."

CSC also added scalability to support its global outsourced clients'
continuing e-business-driven demand for higher service on the large IMS
and
DB2 mainframe environments. BMC Software's solutions provide the
foundation
for a true 24x7 application availability on these systems. Additional
solutions for enterprise storage management, enterprise application
integration management, enterprise security administration, database
administration and cross-platform enterprise scheduling are also provided
with this agreement.

"Our solutions are vital to companies that require service level
management
and have the flexibility for managing customers' heterogeneous
environments," said Kirill Tatarinov, senior vice president and CTO at BMC
Software. "Proactive management of systems, applications, databases and
resources are key to today's e-business initiatives. CSC will have the
ability to tightly integrate customers' mission-critical systems with our
solutions to deliver high availability and performance, no matter which of
the leading hardware platforms they choose."

"BMC offers multi-platform monitoring solutions that can be effectively
incorporated into CSC's global integrated enterprise management
initiative,
thereby expanding our capabilities," said Bill Buskirk, director of CSC's
GIS Engineering Services. "This makes them a natural fit for our
pragmatic
approach of applying maximum manageability with minimum disruption to our
outsourced clients' applications and systems. The opportunity for a quick
return on investment and a satisfied customer is clear when we effectively
integrate these solutions into our overall strategy."

To facilitate the implementation of this agreement, BMC Software has
developed a secure extranet that will give CSC a customized site for its
communications needs, including direct access to support services
information and interactive tools, updated product facts, key contact
information, order processing procedures and presentations on various
topics
of interest.
