BMC Expands DevOps API

BMC, a provider of IT service solutions, has rolled out Control-M Workbench, a no-cost, self-service, standalone development environment which builds on the Control-M Automation API that was introduced in 2016.

Control-M Automation API is a set of programmatic interfaces that enables developers and DevOps engineers to automate application workflows in a self-service manner within the agile application release process. Control-M Workbench is designed to provide developers the autonomy to code, debug, and test workflows the same way that any other coding activity is performed.

“The key to being agile in a multi-cloud environment is for companies to adapt to the challenges posed by diverse infrastructure, disparate data, and accelerated applications to deliver true digital business automation,” said Gur Steif, president of digital business automation at BMC. “One of these specific challenges is better collaboration in the Dev-to-Ops application hand-off process “With our latest innovation, Control-M Workbench, developers and DevOps engineers can deliver applications faster and with better quality to drive business growth and competitive advantage.”

The movement of testing, monitoring, automation, and policy compliance earlier in the development lifecycle is a key enabler of accelerating digital service innovation. With a Jobs-as-Code approach, developers can code business application automation directly into the delivery pipeline using their current DevOps tools and shift left enterprise automation for business applications. By giving developers direct access to the Control-M workload automation solution operations receives tested, production-ready applications to advance the business.

Control-M Workbench fosters skill-sharing and collaboration between development and operations.  This new capability gives developers access to build, test, and debug batch automation in a sandbox environment and seamlessly integrate with their preferred Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) tools and methods, including JSON, Git, Jenkins, and others.
