Integrating by using BMC Helix Intelligent Integrations

An organization with a huge IT infrastructure and global operations might have multiple tools to monitor and manage the performance and health of its infrastructure environment. Managing multiple and independent third-party monitoring tools might impact coherent monitoring. 

As a tenant administrator, you can use BMC Helix Intelligent Integrations to integrate with third-party products (cloud-based, on-premises, or hybrid) to collect alert, event, metric, and topology data. You can view and derive actionable insights from this data in BMC Helix AIOps, BMC Helix Discovery, and BMC Helix Operations Management.

The following video (3:19) provides a high-level overview of BMC Helix Intelligent Integrations.
