Ubuntu Pro, Canonical’s comprehensive subscription for secure open source and compliance, is now generally available.
BMC announced new automation innovations to help customers improve DevOps agility and fast track digital business.
BMC's Control-M application workload automation platform now features new capabilities for more unified, highly-efficient managed file transfer, optimized rapid cloud deployment for AWS and Azure, and a new Automation API with expanded 'Jobs-as-Code' capabilities for DevOps teams.
"Organizations are focused on fast tracking digital business for rapid transformation," said Gur Steif, President, Workload Automation at BMC. "Control-M is at the intersection of infrastructure, data, and applications. The innovations announced today are making it easier for enterprises to drive efficiency into DevOps by operationalizing applications faster, making sure the right data is at the right place at the right time, and providing a single point of control for managing business application workloads anywhere."
BMC's Control-M Managed File Transfer solution provides one operational dashboard for consolidated, end-to-end visibility into the status of file transfers and business application workloads, increasing efficiency and control of business services. With the pervasive expansion of new business applications, organizations face increasing difficulty managing and maintaining status visibility to their critical file transfers. The Control-M Managed File Transfer product eliminates the need to integrate multiple file transfer solutions or to manually script or trace transfers across multiple solutions to resolve issues.
For companies that want to host their applications in the cloud, Control-M now provides rapid cloud installation and configuration capabilities to gain the flexibility and scalability benefits of cloud ecosystems. Deploying in the cloud reduces complexity and allows customers to leverage their cloud-based services with Control-M in minutes rather than days.
"In the digital era, enterprises need to focus on speed and innovation to remain competitive and create outstanding customer experiences," said Donnie Berkholz, Research Director at 451 Research. "Equipping them with the ability to quickly and easily move to the cloud, leverage integrated APIs, and more effectively collaborate increases reliability as well as speed, proving that those DevOps requirements are not at odds with each other in the transition to continuous delivery."
Previously announced for Hadoop environments, BMC is now extending Control‑M Automation API support to other platforms and applications. Control-M delivers self-service, programmatic interfaces to developers and DevOps engineers to build 'jobs-as-code' using JSON for job definitions, GIT and RESTful APIs for validation, configuration, and deployment. This enables seamless integration of workflow scheduling artifacts with the preferred tools used to automate the application release and deployment process. With the entire delivery pipeline now almost identical to the target operational environment, applications run more reliably, errors are diagnosed more quickly, and audit, compliance, and management capabilities are all included during delivery.
