BMC has introduced a self-service web design tool designed to enable applications to be integrated into the vendor’s Control-M Workload Automation offering. The new tool, Control-M Application Integrator, includes a community hub that enables sharing of development information.
“Today’s enterprises demand an ever-expanding set of applications to gain internal- and customer-facing competitive advantages” said Gur Steif, president of BMC Workload Automation. “Integrating these applications into a workload automation solution typically means custom scripting or application-provided job scheduling tools that are not enterprise-class or capable. With Control-M Application Integrator and the Application Hub, our customers can deliver the kind of digital innovation at the speed they need to change the game for their businesses.”
Included in the launch is an open community “Application Hub” where customers and partners can find, share and submit their application integrations. BMC seeks to offer IT managers the ability to integrate any application into the Control-M solution themselves with a simple web designer, and access to a broad range of crowd-sourced application integrations to accelerate new levels of industrial efficiency and precision.
Using the Control-M Application Integrator, customers and partners can develop integrations with commercial applications as well as home-grown applications with the capabilities and functions of BMC-developed native interfaces, the vendor says.
