Blortal. Let's marry BladeLogic and Portal in a Kimye/Bennifer way....
Actually, let's think through this... Automation Portal? Do the people like the Blade name?
I understand that the market still likes the brandname Bladelogic. And since it's a portal where operators wil be able to "operate" all Bladelogic products, let's just call it the Bladelogic Operations Portal. BOP. Maybe even BBOP. BAP? Bladelogic Automation Portal? BBAP?
BAP, let's do BAP.

Well, in keeping with traditional BMC naming how about:
BMC BladeLogic Data Center Automation Portal for Servers, Network, Application, and Databases or BBDCAPSNAD for short.
But seriously, DCAP - Data Center Automation Portal sounds easiest.
More like BBDBCBABPBSBNBABD.
Great to see customers joining the thread already! Any other suggestions from out there in the real world?
BladeLogic Automation Center
BladeLogic Automation Central
BMC Automation Central
BMC Automation Center
I would not use BladeLogic in the name. BMC recently dropped it and it's known simply as BMC Server Automation now.
What BMC products are a part of DCA? Will this portal support all those products?
Sorry to disappoint you all but i just want to show you the login page to our internal Web-Portal,
that sits on top of our "DCA Platform" (BL, AO, BDSSA).
I have removed our Logo's and Descriptions .... But basically we have already picked some names mentioned here, so please get in contact with us to discuss regarding Licensing
But we are really looking forward to 8.5 and the portal !!
Personally i think it should "Bladelogic [Server] Automation Portal".
What's funny is that even when you do a fresh install of 8.3 today.....it seems to display al Names that the product ever had, as it even shows "BMC Bladelogic Configuration Manager" in the installer splashscreen.
Steffen, that looks really cool! I would love to hear more about what you are doing here, quite apart from the names... Have you thought of doing a write-up here on BMC Communities?
i will discuss this internally with my team but i generally think we would be happy to share some information.
I'll keep you posted.
Unless we plan to extend it for Admin console too in future, it should have been called 'DCAOps Portal' or 'Operations Portal' or simply 'DCAOps'. :-)
Some great suggestions here already!
Now, you've had all weekend to think about it (because of course that's what we all do at the weekend...). Any new ideas?
