A new generation of experiments on relativistic nuclear physics is planned to be started in the nearest years at the Nuclotron-based Ion Collider facility (NICA) under construction at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna. The fixed target experiment BM@N (Baryonic Matter at Nuclotron) is considered as a first stage towards the implementation of the physics program available at NICA. For a successful accomplishment of the BM@N physics program, a well-developed and tested software package for simulation, digitization, reconstruction and analysis of collision events and other supporting tasks is of utmost importance. The data flow scheme of the experiment is shown. Offine and online software systems, such as the main BmnRoot framework, databases of the experiment, data monitoring and others providing information support for the experiment are presented. The implementation of the software systems is a necessary stage for the successful operation of the BM@N experiment.
