BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization provides the ability to develop additional data collection capabilities, new content artifacts and integrations with external applications. BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization provides specific development tools (i.e. Integration Studio) and a comprehensive set of Application Programming Interfaces (API).
These are of the following two types of objects that can be developed with BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization.
BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization plugins can be broadly categorized as being on the Input or on the Output side.
ETL: a custom ETL can be developed to used to extend out-of-the-box integration capabilities
Report template: a custom Report template can be used to extend out-of-the-box reporting templates
