         - Best of breed solutions for IT analytics and discovery, and
     IT asset lifecycle and software license management combined in single
                             integrated offering -

    MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA and GATINEAU, QC, March 26 /CNW Telbec/ - BDNA
Corporation, the leading solution provider of IT infrastructure insight and
analysis, and Provance Technologies, a leading provider of IT Asset Management
software, today announced a new joint solution for software and IT asset
management. The combined offering provides customers with the ability to
quickly and accurately compare and reconcile their actual software deployment
with the entitlements of their software license agreements.
    The solution combines the analytics and discovery capabilities of BDNA's
technology and the contract, license and asset lifecycle management of the
Provance solution. Through a single interface, customers can select software
and IT asset inventory information and view comprehensive and trusted
compliance reports that identify deviation from software license agreements to
resolve discrepancies. The joint offering from BDNA and Provance allows
customers to manage hardware and software costs, maintain license conformance,
respond to software audits and avoid costly fines or penalties.
    "Customers tend to lean toward vendors that offer complete 'all-in-one'
suite solutions, which may involve sacrificing functionality in specific
technology areas," said Gartner Research Director Patricia Adams.
"Comprehensive IT asset management and inventory/discovery solutions are in
demand as organizations expand their technology installed base and realize the
need to track and manage assets to facilitate software license compliance,
improve financial management decisions, optimize vendor relationships, support
CMDB implementations and minimize total cost of ownership."
    "This partnership represents an obvious pairing of two distinguished
'best in class' solutions," said Ray Homan, CEO of BDNA. "The integration of
BDNA's rapid and accurate agentless discovery and analytics solution, and the
depth of the Provance solution for IT financial and contract management
delivers highly compelling customer benefit."
    "Today's enterprise organizations require a single solution that fully
addresses their needs for both IT asset discovery and lifecycle management,"
said Gilles Lalonde, CEO of Provance. "The superior functional capability,
seamless integration and competitive pricing of the Provance/BDNA solution is
a compelling alternative to general purpose IT operational management suites
for enterprises seeking a solution that's rich in depth as well as breadth."
    The new combined BDNA/Provance solution is available immediately. Further
information is available by contacting BDNA or Provance sales or sales agents.
