New BroadVision Partnership Delivers Solution that Proactively Monitors Web
Interactions and Site Performance

LONDON - (April 17, 2001) - Fulfilling its B2B management strategy, BMC
Software, Inc
[NYSE: BMC], the leading provider of enterprise systems management, today
announced that it has formed a partnership with BroadVision to introduce
PATROL for BroadVision. PATROL helps sustain enterprise relationships by
ensuring the availability of BroadVision solutions, an integrated suite of
packaged applications for conducting e-commerce interactions and
transactions. PATROL for BroadVision is part of BMC Software's sell-side
solution offering that includes products to manage Web infrastructure, B2B
applications, and commerce and collaboration platforms.

PATROL's Customer/Business Benefits
PATROL for BroadVision is an end-to-end solution that monitors the
availability and performance of BroadVision e-business applications and
their connectivity to database and Web servers providing a foundation for
performance improvement. Additionally, the product monitors users'
sessions, enabling the operator to rapidly detect potential problems and
resolve them before customers are affected.

PATROL for BroadVision provides the following benefits:
( accelerates return on investment of BroadVision applications;
( reduces resources and time needed to detect system problems; and
( increases customer loyalty

PATROL's rapid problem identification automates the problem detection
process by proactively monitoring log files and logically grouping error
messages and application components for easy diagnosis. This process
eliminates the need for BroadVision administrators to manually browse the
log files for error messages related to the problem - an inefficient and
time consuming process. The sooner a problem is detected, the faster it can
be rectified and the interaction can resume.
PATROL's Comprehensive Solution Suite for B2B eCommerce Environments
"The strength of a B2B environment is only as good as the strength of the
management solutions behind it," said Paul Barker, vice president and
general manager, PATROL eBusiness Solutions Business Unit. "If a business
seeks to provide a smooth customer experience, it must proactively manage
the entire system and not just stand-alone applications. BMC Software
provides companies with a complete management solution for their B2B needs."

PATROL integrates coverage of BroadVision applications with that of the
entire enterprise from databases to Web servers and firewalls, offering a
comprehensive management platform to optimise the customer experience
including PATROL for E-Business Management Solutions, PATROL for ERP
Management, PATROL for Database Management and PATROL for Server Management.

PATROL is a broad, integrated solution that enables the rapid deployment of
advanced service-level management through a unique continuous improvement
process. The process not only enables customers to measure service in terms
of end-user response time of business transactions and publish reports on
compliance against service level agreements (SLAs), but it also uniquely
allows for automated diagnosis of the root cause of failures and prediction
of the impact of business change on the quality of service delivered. From
a single graphical console, PATROL provides centralized control and helps to
proactively manage systems, applications, databases and resources across
e-business enabled enterprises.
