BMC Expands DevOps Offerings
January 06, 2021

BMC announced several new capabilities and enhancements for the BMC Automated Mainframe Intelligence (AMI) and Compuware portfolios that enable BMC mainframe customers to protect uptime and availability, defend the mainframe against cybersecurity threats, and advance enterprise DevOps.

The new BMC AMI Ops solution takes MainView, the BMC solution for optimizing mainframe systems management, and enhances it with AI and ML through an upgraded and intuitive user interface designed for both new and experienced mainframe users. The solution's new AIOps features allow organizations to identify and respond to problems before they can affect service levels and secure communications between enterprise systems with a RESTful API to support automation.

The BMC AMI Security solution's new security controls, out-of-the-box security checks, and additional indicators of compromise allow customers to increase threat detection and response capabilities. Integrated with the Compuware Application Audit capability, customers can now capture relevant data about user access and behavior so they can quickly detect breaches and mitigate financial and brand reputation damages. These new offerings, along with the BMC Security Assessment and Penetration Testing services which identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses in configurations, software, and security controls (conducted either onsite or remotely), further harden and defend the mainframe against malicious actions and data threats.

DevOps teams can now see which Compuware DevOps toolchain products and capabilities are underutilized with the new Compuware zAdviser dashboards. In addition, they can deliver applications and services faster with the Compuware Topaz for Total Test product's enhanced automated testing capabilities, which simplify automated test case creation, expand test coverage with negative testing, and reduce rework.

A new integration between the Control-M and Compuware ThruPut Manager solutions ensure jobs run at or before their expected times, resulting in shorter, more efficient, and cost-optimized batch processing. Users can now use ThruPut Manager to customize the prioritization of mainframe jobs based on data from Control-M, BMC's application workflow orchestration platform.

The new and improved BMC AMI Data for IMS is the evolution of BMC solutions for IMS. It delivers optimized mainframe IMS transaction and data management so enterprises can improve availability of critical business services, meet and exceed SLAs, and better support agile application development with fewer resources.

"Our customers tell us they want to innovate and modernize faster in their mainframe environments while also improving business resiliency and platform security," said John McKenny, SVP and GM of ZSolutions at BMC. "The comprehensive set of BMC AMI and Compuware capabilities delivered today enables enterprises to make significant progress on all fronts with AI and ML-powered insights that drive intelligent operations, adaptive cybersecurity, and deeper insights into mainframe development. Combined with expanded automated testing capabilities that improve Agile development and delivery, enterprises can innovate faster and meet the growing demands of digital business growth."
