Data protection enhancements to support the GDPR
BMC Digital Workplace provides the Personal Data Privacy Utility for supporting applicable data protection and privacy requirements associated with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). To learn more about the GDPR, and the BMC Digital Workplace technology, see Data privacy, the GDPR, and the Digital Workplace technology.
The Personal Data Privacy Utility can be used by the data protection officer or the administrator to determine that the product is compliant with the GDPR, and to manage and resolve the data privacy inquiries, requested by individuals.
The utility works both for basic configuration (BMC Digital Workplace) and advanced configuration (BMC Digital Workplace Catalog and BMC Digital Workplace), and is compatible with Linux, Windows, MSSQL, and Oracle. To learn more about the utility, see Addressing data privacy requests.

Selecting the option will update the product to the latest version of BMC Digital Workplace and includes everything in BMC Digital Workplace Basic, plus the ability to manage locations and monitor service health.
