BMC Helix Remedy Review
MyIT is simple to use and its mobility is a big plus for our on the go users


What is our primary use case?

Managing our customer products, problems, and take-ons as well as our IT  operations and change management. We also use it to manage our ever growing infrastructure.

How has it helped my organization?

The MyIT product has given our end users a much better perception of Remedy and made the product look more fluid. This has made people more likely to log calls rather than do work offline allowing us to get a better picture of what is going happening on a daily basis and monitor trends correctly.

What is most valuable?

MyIT is simple to use and its mobility is a big plus for our on the go users.

What needs improvement?

SmartIT could include PR. This would help us greatly in bridging the gap between Remedy's views and SmartIT. We would love to see this feature in the near future.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

From time to time, but I think that is our fault due to extra processes that we implemented to fit our business needs.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues.

How is customer service and technical support?

Its mostly great. Sometimes, it takes a little while on the more complex issues, but generally it is fast.

Which solutions did we use previously?

HEAT. It was a dated product with limitations.

How was the initial setup?

At first, the setup was complex, but we have evolved since then.

What about the implementation team?

We implemented in-house. Our whole team is well-seasoned in Remedy.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is costly, but it is well worth it. Just make sure you really sit down and look at what you will be using per user, therefore you will not be surprised with a big bill. You do not want every user having every license, it really is not needed.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not. We went to Remedy because we knew it was the way to go.

What other advice do I have?

Give it a try. Demos are easy to come by. Speak to others using the product. If you are a medium or enterprise business, it is a great value.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
