HOUSTON – December 15, 2017 – BMC, a global leader in IT solutions for the digital enterprise, today announced new capabilities for the BMC Data Management and MainView solutions for IBM® IMS™, offering customers enhanced continuous availability, scalability, security, lower CPU consumption, and improved management of unpredictable workloads.
The new solutions build upon BMC’s continued commitment to provide organizations that depend on mainframes with innovative software solutions by providing improved MTTR, reducing resource consumption and costs, and delivering improved reporting capabilities. Today’s announcement complements BMC’s recent announcement to provide solutions that support the ultra-secure IBM z14 mainframe.
“More than half of the respondents in BMC’s 12th annual mainframe survey indicated that they maintain at least 50% of their data on the mainframe, and two-thirds of respondents are working to reduce maintenance windows,” said Bill Miller, president of ZSolutions at BMC. “Ensuring the integrity, security, and recoverability of data is clearly of critical importance. With the new capabilities in BMC’s data and systems management solutions, customers have solutions that are available, tested, and production-ready to support their business-critical applications.”
The new capabilities enable customers to reduce costs, and increase performance and availability through dramatically enhanced performance management, database administration, transaction management, and backup and recovery capabilities. The solutions’ new capabilities enable clients to:
With these new capabilities, the solutions also offer day one support for the IBM IMS 15 transactional database. IMS 15 delivers the availability, scalability, and performance required for enterprise and integrated on-premises and cloud environments. With BMC’s latest releases supporting IMS 15, BMC clients can be assured that their businesses will continue uninterrupted and experience smooth migrations to the new IMS system.
