BMC Software (BMC) hopes to satisfy IT compliance and change management policies across both private and public cloud services through a new offering for administrators.

The Houston-based business service management platform company on Wednesday announced a new hybrid cloud solution designed to enforce IT compliance and change management policies.

Cloud Lifecycle Management 4.0 (CLM 4), available as an appliance or service, assists with IT service management governance across physical and virtual infrastructures and private and public clouds, including Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft (MSFT) Azure.

"There is a dangerous compliance gap in cloud computing today, where IT compliance and governance rules are not applied consistently across public and private clouds," BMC Cloud and Datacenter Automation Group President Chris Keene said in a prepared statement.

Also in the news this week, BMC made its IT management solution available on AWS, a Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP)-compliant cloud services provider (CSP), in an attempt to assist government agencies with lowering costs by running apps in the cloud.

Bringing back a thought from the past, BMC received $750 million dollars in debt financing from Bain Capital in April 2014.

The tech giant hasn't made an acquisition since August 2013, when it acquired Partnerpedia, a company that provides private label marketplace and enterprise app store solutions.
