BMC Helix iPaaS, powered by Jitterbit overview
BMC Helix iPaaS, powered by Jitterbit is a robust, enterprise-grade iPaaS and API Management platform (or technology) that is powered by the Jitterbit Harmony API Integration Platform. This technology helps you to address advanced business processes and integration challenges of your digital enterprises. Because this technology is suitable to implement BMC to third-party integrations, you can integrate BMC Helix ITSM with vendor applications in an on-premises, a cloud, or a hybrid environment.
BMC Helix Multi-Cloud Broker, along with BMC Helix iPaaS, powered by Jitterbit provides out-of-the-box integration templates to implement an integration. A template is a collection of structured, data-like project variables and workflows that connect two applications and perform a series of events to accomplish a goal.
You can access the out-of-the-box integration templates from the Electronic Product Distribution site.
