BMC and MKS Unite IT Operations with Development


BMC Validated Logo

IT organizations typically lack visibility into the Application Development world. While IT may have a high level of transparency and control in the areas of support and operations, most times that rigor does not apply to the application development group. Since 20-40% of the average IT budget is spent on software development and delivery, this is a large blind spot organizations cannot afford to ignore.

The MKS and BMC partnership solves this by providing transparency and control across the entire IT landscape.

A unique integration of the Application Management Database (AMDB), Configuration Management Database (CMDB) and IT Business Management Suite allows customers a complete management suite for IT. Integrating BMC Business Service Management (BSM) with MKS Integrity allows IT organizations to run IT like a business, providing visibility from incident to problem identification, into the application development process right through release back into production. Together MKS and BMC provide enterprises with one market-leading solution for Requirements and Test management offering integration with traceability between Requirements and Test with best in class Software Configuration Management (Version Control).

The integrations with MKS Integrity include BMC Remedy Action Request System, BMC BladeLogic Application Release Automation, and BMC Application Problem Resolution (Identify Appsight) applications. Ultimately, using MKS Integrity Application Management Database (AMDB), federated with BMC's Configuration Management Database, (CMDB) and Business Management Suite will offer the enterprise a complete view of IT change from application inception to retirement. The close integration between the AMDB and CMDB bridges the chasm between IT operations and IT development that has up until now prevented full traceability and transparency of IT change.

Running the business of IT depends on visibility into all of IT: Operations and Application Development. This integration provides real time visibility of metrics collected during application development. This information provides the ability to do impact analysis, cost analysis, and other management activities.
