Intelligent automation and new strategic integrations deliver unique capabilities for competitiveness and differentiation across industries
Amid global economic rebounds, customers are demanding innovative experiences and increased service quality through more effective IT service management (ITSM) and IT operations management (ITOM). BMC, a global leader in software solutions for the Autonomous Digital Enterprise, is a top choice for several of the world’s most technologically advanced organisations – including Grupo Moura, the Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust, and Huisman Equipment B.V. – that have all seen business benefits in customer service, operations, and competitiveness using the BMC Helix solutions.
According to a new BMC-commissioned survey of 400 IT and business leaders conducted by Hanover Research, business initiatives are now significantly more likely to be supported by both IT service and operations teams. For example, in late 2020, 51 percent of IT managers were involved in ITSM and ITOM integration versus 36 percent in 2019, showing a rapidly growing level of interest and activity in this convergence.
The open, AI-driven BMC Helix portfolio delivers unique capabilities in service operations for high-performing digital experiences, customer-centric engagement, and uninterrupted service through AI service management (AISM) and AI operations (AIOps). Ultimately, the BMC Helix portfolio helps customers accelerate their journey to becoming an Autonomous Digital Enterprise, a future state of business that comprises intelligent, interconnected, technology-enabled, value-creating systems that minimise manual effort.
