BMC offers new opportunities for Hadoop environments


BMC announced an expanded Big Data strategy to automate, accelerate and secure enterprise-class Hadoop environments.

The company says enterprises will adopt big data analytics tools to get actionable insights from data gathered in their lifetime.

According to IDC, by 2020 about 1.7 MB of new information will be created every second for every human on the planet.

BMC said mastering this data is fundamental to every organization’s successful digital transformation and failure to leverage the data and analytics will cripple an organization’s ability to meet customer expectations and competitive pressures.

The company noted that its big data solutions deliver automation of workflows and integration of Hadoop with the technology stack.

Further, BMC’s TrueSight Capacity Optimization solution helps to plan and right size Hadoop environments.

The BMC Discovery enterprise management solution gives visibility into big data infrastructures including Hadoop, storage, analytics and consuming processes.

“As big data becomes more and more central to enterprises strategic planning, the ability to effectively and efficiently manage production Hadoop deployments at scale becomes increasingly important,” said Stephen O’Grady, principal analyst, RedMonk.

“BMC’s focus is in building on its long history of enterprise management to bring those capabilities to the Big Data space generally and to Hadoop specifically,” O’Grady added.

Adding to its Big Data strategy, BMC also announced Control-M Automation API, designed to improve Hadoop application deployment agility.

The Control-M Automation APIis a set of programmatic interfaces for Hadoop architects, engineers, and developers to use Control-M in a self-service manner within the agile application release process.
