Hello friends of TrueSight!

 

The time has come again! It’s my favorite time of year. Pumpkin spice lattes are back (ok let’s be real pumpkin spice EVERYTHING is back), Texas is finally not a million degrees, and we are rolling out a major release this week – which as a Solutions Marketing Manager is why I get up every morning. But today is different, because this launch is something special. We are aligning the entire TrueSight portfolio in support of AIOps. Read this blog to learn more about the holistic TrueSight 11 launch.

 

If you’ve been with BMC Performance and Analytics solutions for any length of time you know there are many ducks to get in a row. But here we are; aligned and focused with a direction and vision that we’re executing on in TrueSight Operations 11. The way we are executing on our innovation priorities in this release fall into three categories:

 

  1. Experience for the digital enterprise
  2. Multi-cloud cost transparency and performance visibility
  3. Analytics and machine learning built for IT operations

 

For each of these priorities we’ve delivered new capabilities in TrueSight Operations 11. We’ll go through each of these below – but if you’d rather watch the What’s New in TrueSight Operations video by my partner in crime Sr. Technical Marketing Consultant, Patrick Campbell click here.

Hello to the TrueSight Community!

 

This is Kristin Baskett, Solutions Marketing Manager for TrueSight Operations Management, again. We’re excited to inform you that we are ready to kick off Phase 2 of the TrueSight Operations Management communities’ simplification project which will take place this March. We’ve been on a path to simplify and streamline our product portfolio – integrating all the features you love into a comprehensive and easy to visualize solution in TrueSight Operations Management. It’s time to make our community taxonomy match our current product portfolio. We’ve already simplified the experience in our APM communities and now it’s time to take the next step!

 

Here are the changes that will be coming over the next month:

 

  • The TrueSight Operations MgmtCommunity will be renamed TrueSight Operations Management
  • The TrueSight Infrastructure Mgmt community will be renamed TrueSight Infrastructure Management and will be merged with the The specified item was not found. and the The specified item was not found. Communities. This community will be a child of the TrueSight Operations Management Community.
  • The TrueSight App Visibility Manager Community will be renamed TrueSight App Visibility Manager and be merged with the The specified item was not found.Community. This will be a child of the TrueSight Operations Management Community.
  • The TrueSight IT Data Analytics community will be renamed TrueSight IT Data Analytics and will be a child of the TrueSight Operations Management Community.
  • The TrueSight Middleware Mgmt Community will moved from a subspace of the Mainframes Solutions Community to a child of the TrueSight Operations Management Community and renamed TrueSight Middleware Management. The Mainframes & Middleware Community will be renamed Mainframe.

 

Here is what the new and improved navigation will look like for TrueSight:

 

  1. TrueSight Capacity Optimization
  2. TrueSight Operations Management
    1. TrueSight App Visibility Manager
    2. TrueSight Infrastructure Management
    3. TrueSight IT Data Analytics
    4. TrueSight Middleware Management
  3. TrueSight Pulse

 

If this taxonomy change is giving you a bit of heartburn, make sure to “Follow in” Connection Streams. That way you’ll be notified of the hottest community interactions even after the taxonomy has changed. For more information about how to get the best out of community notifications check out this blog: Notifications Tips for BMC Communities.

 

We know you’ll enjoy this radically simplified experience and we can’t wait to drive more interaction in these communities!

 

All the best,

 

Kristin
