BMC has released a comprehensive strategy for multi-cloud management and a range of new solutions and services.
An Innovative Family of Multi-Cloud Solutions
IT is now charged with managing a dispersed multi-cloud environment, using multiple cloud services from multiple public cloud hosting providers in addition to on-premises infrastructure and data. In this new reality, as many as 60 percent of traditional IT assets and applications are not within IT’s direct control.
BMC’s solutions address two challenges created by multi-cloud complexity: cost and security.
TrueSight Cloud Cost Control is a cost management solution that analyzes current and future costs and utilization of multi-cloud infrastructure services, providing insight and control over capital and operating expenditures. With a single view of on-premises and public cloud infrastructure spending, organizations can track and analyze infrastructure costs and utilization, identify overspending, and forecast future costs. The ability to simulate migrations to public cloud and compare on-premises and various public cloud service costs ensures applications run on the most cost-efficient infrastructure.
SecOps Policy Service embeds compliance and security testing into the software development life cycle, empowering developers to perform critical checks without stalling innovation. The cloud-based solution provides continuous verification, analytics, and governance to ensure compliance is protected, reducing risk when creating multi-cloud applications. SecOps Policy Service also prioritizes and remediates noncompliant configurations across public cloud services, utilizing a flexible architecture with built-in connectors and policy extensibility for virtually any data source.
Last month, the company also announced BMC Discovery for Multi-Cloud, extending BMC’s discovery and dependency-mapping capabilities to provide dynamic visibility into public and private clouds.
Preparing for the Next Innovation Wave: Artificial Intelligence
BMC is investing in machine learning, artificial intelligence, and cognitive-driven capabilities to leverage predictive automation that can analyze data faster than people.
- TrueSight 11, BMC’s platform for artificial intelligence in IT operations, leverages machine learning and analytics to improve the quality and performance of services in multi-cloud environments.
- BMC’s Cognitive Service Management solutions address the complexities of multi-cloud computing by applying intelligence, automation, and predictive capabilities. CSM enables an omnichannel service experience leveraging chatbots and virtual agents to simplify and enhance employee self-service and to deliver speed and accuracy of ticket classification and resolution so agents spend less time on repetitive tasks.
