IT administrators typically need to coordinate configuration management processes with other Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) processes, such as incident management and change management.

Part of Compliance Automation, the BMC Continuous Compliance for Database Automation solution automates the integration of BMC Database Automation monitoring, auditing, compliance, and remediation processes with IT management systems such as BMC Remedy ITSM.

The integration with BMC Remedy ITSM is accomplished through BMC Atrium Orchestrator and standard application interfaces (APIs).
