BMC Software unveils mobile self-service and Cognos business intelligence tools

BMC Software has introduced a self-service
mobile app and business intelligence enhancements for its workload automation
solution, Control-M.

BMC is also introducing a new wizard
conversion toolset that makes it fast for companies to consolidate on Control-M
and achieve improved productivity and efficiency.

BMC provides Control-M users with the
ability to manage their automated workload activity, in a role-based,
self-service view on their iPad tablet device or iPhone.

Available for free download in the Apple
iTunes store, the Control-M Self Service mobile app enables users to monitor
and manage scheduled processing and complex event workloads from anywhere via
their mobile device. To date, the mobile app has a constant download of about
100 users per month.

“The BMC Control-M Self Service App for the
iPad and iPhone is the perfect pairing of mobile technology and simplicity,”
said Brad Scott, president and CEO of Cetan, a BMC Software Partner.

Customers are continuing to see the value
of the Control-M Self Service mobile app.

“As the largest U.S. options and exchange
and creator of listed options, we continue to set the bar for options trading
through trading technology,” said John Strege, director, capacity and
enterprise software, Chicago Board Options Exchange.

BMC and IBM have teamed up to integrate the
powerful Cognos Business Intelligence tool with the Control-M application. Both
business and IT Control-M users have the ability to interact with their
workload automation tasks and understand if work will be completed on time to
satisfy their business needs.

The Control-M solution’s ability to work
across multiple technology platforms like mainframes, distributed systems,
virtual machines and the cloud enables companies to access data, process
scheduled workloads and keep applications running no matter where they run.
Because of this, BMC has seen tremendous growth and continued adoption of its
Control-M workload automation product.

With newly-integrated capabilities to
support clouds running on the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management solution, Amazon
EC2 or on VMware infrastructure, BMC’s Control-M workload automation solution
provides businesses the elasticity needed to support the known and unknown
spikes in workload processing. This allows businesses to more cost-effectively
manage their capacity needs and ensure business service levels are met when
processing scheduled work in the cloud, including business transactions and
business processes.

Another customer who has turned to BMC’s
Control-M Workload Automation solution to help their IT departments save
resources and expenditures while keeping a diverse IT environment working
together is Cetelem Bank in Spain.
