Bluebonnet Adds HP and HPE as Defendants in Web-Based Software Campaign

August 8, 2020

Following its late July case against Facebook, BCS Software LLC (d/b/a Bluebonnet Consulting Services & Software) has filed suit against HP (6:20-cv-00709) and HPE (6:20-cv-00708) in the Western District of Texas. The NPE asserts in each complaint a three-member family of patents generally related to a system for using a server to monitor certain client applications and distributed components associated with those applications over a network, acquired as part of a larger deal completed with Intellectual Ventures LLC (IV) in August 2018. The defendants are accused of infringement through the provision of web-based software products, with features related to web application management and performance monitoring at issue; for HP, through the provision of HP Device As A Service (DaaS) and HP Print Beat Dashboard; and for HPE, the HPE Intelligent Management Center Enterprise Software Platform.
