What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is knowledge management.

What needs improvement?

All products can be improved. For this solution, the customization could be improved. BMC has its own community where we can go in and suggest ideas and changes to the products, which is great, but at times BMC is not very responsive. There have been suggestions that were submitted five years ago… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have worked with other competing products for integrations. I focus on BMC solutions.

What other advice do I have?

BMC Helix is a marketing term. The name changed from BMC Remedy ITSM to BMC Helix a few years ago. It's also linked to BMC's CMDB, where they have an image of all of the assets in the company.

What is most valuable?

What I have found to be the most valuable is that it offers the radius deployment package not only to the BMC cloud but also to the public cloud such as Azure. You can also deploy it to a private cloud. The Helix platform is not restricted… more »

What needs improvement?

If you want to have to migrate from on-premises to Helix or from Helix to a ServiceNow, or from cloud to on-premises, it's easy but it requires additional tools. It should be included in the existing package, rather than clients having to… more »

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

Pricing on the licensing depends on how you want to position it. If you are looking for some kind of professional services form the OEM then you would have to purchase that.

What other advice do I have?

I recommend this solution and I would rate it an eight out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

When you evaluate other products they all have their pros and cons. The cost differs, as well as some of the functionalities.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the linking of parent and child tickets. When there are major issues, through the help desk, multiple tickets are raised for the same issue. This allows us to segregate it by parent or child tickets and link the child tickets to the parent. It's easy to calculate the SLA as it provides the timing as to when the ticket was raised, and the clock automatically stops when… more »

How has it helped my organization?

This product has helped us to maintain our OLAs (Organisation level Agreements) and SLAs (Service Level Agreements) by tracking incidents, requests, problem records, and change requests, all in the form of tickets. We can easily check the progress of these tickets and follow up with the respective teams. It provides us the facility to maintain a KEDB (Knowledge database), which is indeed very… more »

What needs improvement?

To raise any ticket, there are too many fields to be filled and it makes generating tickets very time-consuming. Some fields should take data automatically; for example, ticket routing to the teams after entering the team's respective CI (Configuration Item). This will save time and creating tickets would be faster. The GUI looks a bit complex and can be much better. When generating reports, there… more »
