BMC Engage 2016 conference highlights efficiency and agility gains for DevOps teams as they support digital transformation
LAS VEGAS - September 7, 2016 - BMC, the global leader in IT solutions for the digital enterprise, at BMC Engage 2016 today announced new automation innovations to help customers improve DevOps agility and fast track digital business. BMC's Control-M, the market-leading application workload automation platform, now features unique 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.
"With Big Data-fueled applications becoming a much larger requirement, we need to deliver files reliably and quickly," said Andrew Taylor, batch operations team leader at British Sky Broadcasting. "The new dashboards and enhanced search functionality that come with Control-M Managed File Transfer are very popular amongst our support teams, and many sites will benefit from a built-in transfer server. Once deployed, we anticipate a 75 percent reduction in time spent on customer inquiries, so we're very excited to see how it evolves."
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."
Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) awarded BMC's Control-M solution the highest cumulative score in its 2016 Radar for Workload Automation, recognizing Control-M for having the most comprehensive Big Data support. The report gave Control-M the highest product strength scores while also noting its simplified user interface, enabling efficiency and overall requiring less training.
Now in its third year, BMC Engage brings together thousands of customers and partners to discuss the most compelling trends changing the way people work and how companies innovate to fast track their transformation to digital business.
