UPDATE: 6/26/2020

 

Phase 2 of this beta program starts on July 7, 2020. We continue to focus on the new UI technology used in select areas of the Smart IT UI, but also give participants a chance to test the exciting new functional capabilities of Smart IT and the mid-tier UI that are planned to be added in next release.  If interested in joining, please following the instructions below on how to sign up.

 

 

We’re inviting you to get a sneak peek at what BMC is working on in terms of User Experience enhancements for our BMC Helix ITSM / Remedy ITSM solutions. You’ll have an opportunity to engage directly with BMC product experts, product management, and R&D to help validate and provide feedback on the new user experience capabilities BMC Helix ITSM / Remedy ITSM.

 

With the latest User Experience enhancements, BMC is planning to address a number of areas that customers and partners have mentioned in their feedback about Smart IT:

  • Improved customizability and extensibility of the modern ITSM user experience
  • Building modern user experiences for custom applications and custom screens
  • Simplified rollout of mobile ITSM user experience to employees
  • Additional functional capabilities

 

Because this involves exciting new technology, we plan to start testing earlier than usual for our feature releases. The beta program is expected to start early May and run approximately three months, with multiple beta cycles covering an increasing scope of capabilities.

 

This beta program is open to all current Remedy and BMC Helix ITSM customers and partners.  It focuses specifically on user experience aspects. Initial cycles of the beta program are only planned to provide access to the beta version via a hosted environment, but in later cycles we plan to additionally provide a beta version of the software for download and installation in your own IT test environment.

 

What's needed from you?

·         Attendance in beta calls. Current plan is to meet every week during active test cycles.

·         Time and resources to test the new release.

·         Willingness to collaborate with BMC and other customers in our beta community space and to provide open feedback.

·         Be a willing Customer Connect Reference upon successfully completing the program.
