Are you getting the most from your TrueSight implementation? Are you in need of more best practice recommendations? Are you interested in real world examples of how TrueSight is implemented? If you answered YES to any of those questions, look no further. BMC has just what you need. Have you heard of the TrueSight Webinar series? If not, you are missing out. The TrueSight Webinar series arranged by the magnificent Seth Paskin is a series designed to help TrueSight users make the most of their TrueSight environment.  The Webinar series has been around for some time now and we hope it continues to help meet your TrueSight needs. The series does not just cover TrueSight Operations Management. There are topics for various suite components such as TrueSight Server Automation, TrueSight Capacity, TrueSight Orchestration, and even TrueSight Smart Reporting.

 

There was even a Webinar session today!!! Do not worry, if you missed it, you can view the recording here:

TrueSight 11.3.01 is here!!!!!…

The BMC Assisted MIGration Offering, or AMIGO, is a program designed to assist our customers in planning and preparing for product upgrades from an older, to a newer supported version.  By engaging with BMC Technical Support Analysts, you will be provided with materials containing guidelines and best practices to aid in compiling your own upgrade plan. An upgrade expert will then review your plan, and offer advice and suggestions to ensure success through proper planning and testing.

The AMIGO program consists of a Starter Phase and a Review Phase.  Each phase is initiated by opening a support case, and ends when the case is closed.

In the Starter Phase, an AMIGO Starter case is opened.  Reference material will be provided and a call with a Technical Support Analyst will take place to discuss the details of your upgrade, and address any questions you may have.  The AMIGO Starter case will be closed, and the next step will be for you to prepare a documented upgrade plan.

In the Review Phase, an AMIGO Review case is opened preferably two weeks prior to a set upgrade date.  A call will be scheduled with an upgrade expert to review your detailed plan, providing feedback and recommendations, along with answers to any outstanding questions.  As needed, a follow up discussion with a Technical Support Analyst may take place for feedback after the upgrade is performed.

The AMIGO program includes:

» A “Question and Answer” session before you upgrade

» A review of your upgrade plan with Customer Support

» An upgrade checklist

» Helpful tips and tricks for upgrade success from previous customer upgrades

» A follow-up session with Customer Support to let them know how it went. This will help BMC to enhance the process.

 

To get started, please review the details here:

https://docs.bmc.com/docs/TSOperations/113/amigo-checklist-for-truesight-operations-management-814553031.html

 

Then open a BMC Support issue containing your environment information (product, version, OS, etc.) and the planned date of the installation, if known. We will contact you promptly, and work with you to ensure a successful and timely outcome.
