BladeLogic Soars

Here’s a company that got funded just days prior to September 11, 2001. In someone else’s abandoned office space just off 128, a team of entrepreneurs began an unbelievable journey. These guys were excited, optimistic, energetic and passionate. The Internet bubble had already burst, but severs were quietly proliferating in enterprises around the world and this team held the keys to helping IT people manage those servers. The goal was to deliver results, one customer at a time, and create steady, real value in the company.

And then September 11 hit. The rules had changed overnight. In fact, our entire way of life had changed overnight and there were no rules. What did remain was a strong desire to move ahead in spite of constant reminders from the roar of aircraft from nearby Hanscom Field.

Building on the mantra of delivering results and creating real value, BladeLogic got going, one customer at a time. As the momentum grew, this management team kept its composure. They never compromised on the standards they had created at the outset. They never stopped believing in the superiority of their technology. They never sacrificed real value for “buzz” or hype.

Yesterday, BladeLogic’s IPO debuted. The stock price closed at $25. Sometimes the good guys really do win.
