Connecting with automation tools

BMC Helix Intelligent Automation is an automation aggregator. It enables organizations to identify automation opportunities and connect with automation tools to define policies that trigger remediation actions, ensuring no loss to service performance.

By using connectors, automation engineers integrate the product with third-party automation tools to run remediation actions. This integration provides the following benefits:

  • Integrate data: Connectors enable data exchange between systems, ensuring consistency and accuracy of information.

  • Leverage existing process automation: Automated processes across different systems can improve efficiency, accuracy, and reduce the risk of manual errors. By connecting to the automation tool, you can use existing process automations and avoid the effort of re-creating rules, workflows, and processes. 

  • Improved MTTR: Connectors provide real-time information and updates, which improves the remediation response time and minimizes downtime.

BMC Helix Intelligent Automation provides out-of-the-box connectors for the following automation tools:
