BMC Software Announces AIOps in BMC Helix for AI-Optimized IT Ops

BMC Announces AIOps in BMC Helix for AI-Optimized IT Operations
  • BMC Software's new AIOps capabilities in BMC Helix Operations Management use AI for quick IT issue resolution.
  • The solution boosts IT operations in hybrid, multi-cloud environments, enhancing visibility and service performance.
  • New features like service blueprints, causal AI-powered explainability, and AIOps situation fingerprinting expedite incident resolution and risk recovery.

BMC Software, a global leader in IT solutions, announces new AIOps capabilities for its BMC Helix Operations Management solution using the BMC HelixGPT capability. The solution uses advanced AI to find problems' root causes more quickly. It changes the way IT works by adding dynamic service modeling, situation explainability, and deep container auto-detection to better understand containerized environments.

As businesses grapple with complex hybrid, multi-cloud environments and increasing data volume and complexity, the need for advanced AI and machine learning to drive visibility, observability, and optimum business service performance is paramount.

Nancy Gohring, research director for IDC's Enterprise System Management, Observability and AIOps program, emphasized the importance of modernizing IT operations in line with the adoption of hybrid and cloud-native technologies. AIOps capabilities that leverage AI to pinpoint problem causes, guide users to the correct response, and predict potential future issues are key to ensuring service delivery aligns with business outcomes.

The BMC Helix Operations Management solution combines advanced causal AI to identify issue root causes, predictive AI for proactive problem identification and resolution, and generative AI for automating event summaries and best action recommendations for complex problems. These innovations enable IT operations to deliver higher service availability and resilience to businesses, driving efficient operational performance with greater tool silo visibility and superior AI-driven insights for significantly improved problem identification and repair times.

The new BMC Helix Operations Management innovations include out-of-the-box service blueprints, situation explainability powered by causal AI, and AIOps situation fingerprinting powered by AI, GPT, and NLP. These features ensure accurate service models in ever-changing IT environments, swift incident resolution, and faster recovery from service outages and other potential risks.

While the new AIOps capabilities in BMC's Helix Operations Management solution offer a host of benefits, they also present potential challenges. The complexity of AI systems can lead to difficulties in understanding and controlling their operations, which could pose challenges in troubleshooting and rectifying issues. Additionally, the heavy reliance on AI might reduce the level of human oversight in IT operations, which could be risky in certain scenarios. The effectiveness of the solution is also heavily dependent on the quality and quantity of data it receives, which might not always be optimal in real-world scenarios.

On the brighter side, the benefits of this solution are substantial. The use of advanced AI capabilities allows for swift identification and resolution of IT issues, greatly improving operational efficiency. The solution's ability to enhance IT operations in complex hybrid, multi-cloud environments is a significant advantage, as it provides much-needed visibility and service performance. The new features, including out-of-the-box service blueprints, causal AI-powered explainability, and AIOps situation fingerprinting, ensure swift incident resolution and faster recovery from potential risks. These innovations lead to higher service availability and resilience, which are crucial for businesses in today's digital age. Overall, despite some potential challenges, the BMC Helix Operations Management solution's new AIOps capabilities present a promising advancement in the field of IT operations management.

Glassbox Delivers Enterprise-ready Generative AI Assistant with Microsoft Azure OpenAI Service

Glassbox | January 11, 2024

Glassbox (TASE:GLBX), a leading provider of digital experience intelligence for web and mobile applications, today announced the availability of its enterprise-ready AI assistant, which the company has named GIA (Glassbox Insights Assistant). Glassbox turned to Microsoft Azure OpenAI Service, which hosts OpenAI models fully within the secure Azure environment, to elevate the security and privacy standards of its previously announced AI assistant. In combination with Glassbox’s patented data privacy measures, users of the AI assistant can be confident that the conversational interface is protected with the level of rigor they expect from both Microsoft and Glassbox. “We developed the AI assistant earlier based on OpenAI’s GPT model. However, our commitment to responsible AI and our exacting security, data privacy and compliance standards compelled us to turn to the Microsoft Azure OpenAI Service for its additional protections for potentially sensitive data shared or accessed through the new generative AI (GenAI) interface,” said Glassbox co-founder and Chief Technology Officer Yaron Gueta. “GIA sets a new bar for what organizations should expect of GenAI solutions from their software providers.” Glassbox captures millions or billions of digital experience data points for each of its customers every month that give them the richest possible set of data about their digital customer experience. GIA allows Glassbox users to uncover deep digital insights quickly and without technical knowledge or reliance on data and analytics teams. “Microsoft Azure OpenAI Service is ideal for companies like Glassbox that need to deliver enterprise-grade GenAI solutions based on vast, proprietary datasets,” added John Montgomery, CVP, Azure AI at Microsoft. “By using the power of our generative AI capabilities, Glassbox’s AI assistant can deliver a better experience to customers with the security measures of Azure.” With Gartner predicting that more than half of all successful technology solutions will be delivered to “nontraditional” buyers outside of IT by 2025, one of the pillars of Glassbox’s AI strategy is to make its unparalleled set of digital experience data more actionable, more quickly by more users for greater business impact. GIA is central to this strategy as Glassbox shifts increasingly towards natural language interfaces.
