BMC Helix Innovation Suite for Service Management applications

Starting with version 21.02, Service Management applications run on a single environment named, BMC Helix Innovation Suite. With the new BMC Helix Innovation Suite, we bring together the capabilities of Action Request System and BMC Helix Innovation Studio.

As an Action Request System user, use the Action Request System components and clients. Leverage Service Management applications or build a custom application by using Developer Studio.

As a BMC Helix Innovation Studio user, use the the Service Management applications or build a custom application by using BMC Helix Innovation Studio

BMC Helix Innovation Suite provides the following benefits:

  • A single-tenant common platform for Service Management applications.

  • A shared database between AR System and BMC Helix Innovation Studio.

  • A common Foundation data for applications that run on the BMC Helix Innovation Suite

  • The ability to interoperate between AR System and BMC Helix Innovation Studio. For example, you can call a process defined by using BMC Helix Innovation Studio in AR System. The process is called by triggering a filter written in Developer Studio.

Leverage common Foundation data for Service Management applications

BMC Helix Innovation Suite includes common Foundation data that can be used by Service Management applications, such as BMC Helix Business Workflows BMC Helix Virtual Agent BMC Helix ITSM: Change Management, and so on. As an administrator, you can onboard Foundation data or load the data in bulk for the Service Management applications.

The common Foundation data provides the following benefits:

  • Creates a single data source for all the service management applications.
  • Eliminates the need to perform Foundation data sync from  BMC Helix ITSM to BMC Helix Innovation Studio  applications.
  • Eliminates the need to normalize application data.

Integrate BMC Helix ITSM and ServiceNow by using BMC Helix iPaaS, powered by Jitterbit

As an administrator, you can integrate BMC Helix ITSM and ServiceNow so that your agents can log and track incidents related to IT services in your organization. You can create a BMC Helix ITSM incident whenever a ServiceNow incident is created, and the converse is true. You can also synchronize data updates and comments between the two incidents.

Learn more about the integration in Synchronizing BMC Helix ITSM incidents with ServiceNow incidents by using BMC Helix iPaaS.

Enhanced integrations by using BMC Helix iPaaS, powered by Jitterbit

In earlier versions of BMC Helix Multi-Cloud Broker, you could integrate BMC Helix ITSM and vendor applications by using BMC Helix Integration Service. Starting with version 21.02, you can integrate BMC Helix ITSM and some vendor applications by using BMC Helix iPaaS that provides out-of-the-box integration templates. Administrators can quickly update the predefined information in the template and then use it to implement an integration.

The following integrations between BMC Helix ITSM and vendor applications are available by using BMC Helix iPaaS:

The following image shows the Cloud Studio UI where you can access the integration templates and run them:
