HOUSTON – November 8, 2018 – BMC, a global leader in IT solutions for the digital enterprise, today announced the availability of the BMC Helix Cognitive Service Management solution on Microsoft Azure, using the power of containers. Enterprises can now run BMC Helix on their cloud of choice, including Azure, AWS, and BMC Cloud.
