The Brewers and the Dodgers battled it out last week at Milwaukee’s Miller Park. Folks from BMC, Entuity and Moviri were there, along with several area BMC customers and other IT professionals, to watch Rookie Pitcher Kenta Maeda get a win as Dodgers beat the Brewers 8 to 1. You can find the box score here.
Before the game, the group got together for BMC’s Performance and Analytics Technology forum, which was organized to help organizations understand how they can better prepare themselves to gain critical business insight and modernize the user experience.
Entuity Integration with BMC TrueSight Operations
Participants got a nice briefing on the full TrueSight solution and a look into future deliverables coming down the pike. Before reveling in the Brewers Sausage Race tradition (see more below), Entuity System Engineer Larry Balon presented on the many advantages of the Entuity Network Management software integration with BMC TrueSight Operations, including:
- A complete service delivery view
- Real-time network monitoring
- Elimination of duplicate efforts to manage separate data silos
- Shorter MTTR and longer MTBF
- More automation for greater focus on important projects

Later that evening, the Entuity team joined the BMC staff at Summerfest in Milwaukee, where they were treated to performances by legendary music icons Kris Kristofferson and Willie Nelson.
About those Sausages
For those not in the know about the Brewers Sausage Race (which I wasn’t until writing this post), I’ll rely on Wikipedia for enlightenment:
“The Sausage Race is a race of sausage mascots held before the bottom of the sixth inning at every home game of the Milwaukee Brewers. The Sausage Race is a promotion for the Klement’s Sausage Company, located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, whose sausages are served at Miller Park (and previously at Milwaukee County Stadium), the home of the Brewers. The mascots are officially known as Klement’s Racing Sausages.
The race started in the early 1990s with just three sausages – the bratwurst, the Polish sausage (kielbasa), and the Italian sausage. Since then, two new sausages have joined the race – the hot dog, introduced in the mid-1990s, and the chorizo, which was unveiled and eventually joined the race in the mid-2000s.”
