BMC TrueSight Server Automation Previous Solutions

Our company used SMS before BMC. They switched because they wanted a tool that was going to be more encompassing. SMS handled only Windows. They had no automation at all for the Linux/Unix environment. They were looking for something that was going to be cross-platform, one place to go, and not have to deal with multiple tools. If we were to replace just the patching process, we'd have to go with WSUS for Windows, we'd have to stand up Satellite for RedHat. Then we'd have to set up SUSE patching tool, and others. There are multiple components and tons of infrastructure that would have to come into play just for one function. Having one tool that can cover a lot of different topics, with one place to go, is very beneficial. That was one of the primary drivers. View full review »
