Bill Berutti

Former President, Cloud and Enterprise Solutions
BMC Software Inc.

BMC Software, the Houston-based software and services provider, has been on a tear in 2018. In June, the company began folding artificial intelligence and machine learning into its suite of products in a bold bid to help information technology departments with workflow and public cloud integration. In the same month, Berutti announced that the company was aggressively seeking acquisitions to reposition itself as a leader in cloud computing and take on rival ServiceNow, which has soared in value over the past several years. “They have the new shiny object,” Berutti told Bloomberg News in June, referring to ServiceNow. “We were the leader and we were late to software as a service, admittedly. They’re a credible competitor and we face them every day.” Berutti, a Miami University management and marketing grad, now serves as Plex Systems Chief Executive Officer.
