BMC Brings More Intelligence to the Mainframe

BMC has announced automated mainframe intelligence(AMI) solutions intended to deliver higher performing, self-managing mainframe environments. BMC AMI solutions combine built-in domain expertise, machine learning, intelligent automation, and predictive analytics to help enterprises automatically manage, diagnose, heal, secure, and optimize mainframe processes.

"Enterprise IT teams are experiencing complexity at an accelerating rate, and data and transaction volumes are exploding?all while trying to manage a changing workforce, close the skills gap, and optimize costs," said Bill Miller, president of ZSolutions at BMC. "With AMI, we are freeing up IT staff to work on high-value initiatives by removing manual processes through intelligent automation. BMC AMI will automatically analyze dozens of KPIs and millions of metrics a day, and proactively identify, predict, and fix problems before they become an issue."

The BMC AMI solutions enhance mainframe systems through intelligent automation by predicting outages before they occur, solving performance degradations, and mitigating cost increases.

The new offerings include BMC AMI Autonomous Solutions that enable IT operations to automatically anticipate and repair performance degradations and disruptive outages before they occur, without manual intervention. This set of intelligent, integrated solutions extends to BMC AMI for Security Management, BMC AMI for DevOps, BMC AMI for Performance and Availability Management, and BMC AMI Cost and Capacity Management.

BMC AMI Enterprise Connectors connect business-critical data from the mainframe to the entire enterprise and simplify the enterprise-wide management of business applications. These offer a view of enterprise data by streaming mainframe metrics and related information in real-time to a variety of data receivers, including security information and event management solutions such as Splunk, IBM QRadar, ArcSight, LogRhythm, and McAfee Enterprise Security Manager. The BMC AMI Data Extractor for IMS solution is available now, and additional solutions will be available early in 2019.
