End of life for BMC Atrium Integration Engine
BMC Atrium Core includes BMC Atrium Integration Engine for the integration of BMC Atrium CMDB and BMC Remedy AR System with other applications and data sources. BMC Atrium Integration Engine enables you to transfer data between BMC Atrium CMDB classes and BMC Remedy AR system forms to and from external systems.
Statement of direction for the end of life of BMC Atrium Integration Engine
BMC Atrium Integration Engine is being replaced with a new offering called Atrium Integrator. The currently available BMC Atrium Core version 8.1 will be the last release that includes BMC Atrium Integration Engine. No new versions (major or minor) of BMC Atrium Integration Engine will be released after 8.1.
Reason for the change
In order to cater to the growing need for integrations with BMC Atrium CMDB as well as BMC IT Service Management applications, BMC introduced Atrium Integrator in January 2011 as part of the BMC Atrium Core 7.6.04 release. Atrium Integrator is based on an industry-leading ETL platform, and replaces BMC Atrium Integration Engine. For more information about Atrium Integrator, see .
In order to phase in Atrium Integrator, BMC introduced this technology in addition to the BMC Atrium Integration Engine, and is now providing a migration path from BMC Atrium Integration Engine in BMC Atrium Core 8.0. Key features added to Atrium Integrator in BMC Atrium Core 8.1 include:
- Migration utility for moving BMC Atrium Integration Engine exchanges to Atrium Integrator
- Ability to transfer information with BMC Remedy AR System forms
- Server group capability for High Availability installations of Atrium Integrator With the availability of Atrium Integrator 8.1, you now have all of the core capabilities of BMC Atrium Integration Engine and more. Atrium Integrator is now the standard integration platform for BMC Atrium CMDB as well as BMC IT Service Management applications.
