It has been less than a year since BMC launched Education Subscriptions and we just welcomed our 200th Ultimate Subscription
customer – that makes almost 600 Subscription customers overall. Education Subscriptions allow our customers to stay up to
date with rapidly changing environments, new versions, changing roles, and the most recent trainings available. BMC offers three
levels of subscriptions:

  • Explore: free overview content
  • Essentials: fundamentals content to get started
  • Ultimate: unlimited access and all upcoming releases within 1 year

 

We have released over 25 different subscriptions since we launched the service and we have just released some exciting new ones:

  • BMC Helix ITSM and CMDB: Ultimate Subscription (replacing Remedy Core)
  • BMC Helix Digital Workplace and Add-Ons: Ultimate Subscription (replacing Remedy Self Service, including new training like
    BMC Helix Chatbot, BMC Helix Multi-Cloud and BMC Helix Cognitive)

 

Over 500 subscription customers enjoy the following benefits:

 

  • Get More – Continuous access to your selected subscription content for one product including any associated courses
    and certification exams
  • Exclusive Content* – Access education services exclusive to subscription (e.g., six hours of instructor coaching)
  • Ease of Use – One-stop shop to a complete product portfolio of education
  • Save Money – Save up to 60% over the cost of purchasing the same content separately
  • Future Proof* – New content and latest releases automatically added at no additional cost, so your subscription is always
    up to date
  • Flexibility – Train on what you need, when you need it with multiple learning options (i.e., ASP, WBT, instructor-led)

 

Take some time to explore our Subscription services at BMC.com or contact us via education@bmc.com.

* Applies to Ultimate subscriptions only

With increasing demands for robust cybersecurity solutions that comply with industry best practices, BMC has implemented a new

Secure File Transfer (SFT) service for sharing large files with us. Our new SFT service supports SFTP, FTPS, and HTTPS protocols with

the latest in-transit and at-rest encryption technologies.

 

This new service is an alternative to attaching a file to a Case via BMC Support Central and must always be used for files which
exceed the 2GB limit for Case attachment file size. Files that are 2GB or smaller should be attached directly to Cases.

 

Before you can access any of our file transfer services, you must have a Support Central registered account with at least one associated
Support subscription. If you have not previously registered on Support Central, click
here to register. To complete your registration / subscription,
you will need access to your company email account, and a valid Support ID and PIN. If you need instructions on how to register,
click
here to view a how-to video.

 

If you have problems registering, please contact Customer Care by email (customer_care@bmc.com) or by phone.

To help you start using the new SFT application, we have created the following User Guide video and document:

There are some important changes coming to BMC downloads (EPD) on Friday November 16, 2018.

 

Added Features

  • New single download button in EPD. When downloading, you must check the downloads you want and then click the Download button.
    Your browser’s download manager will handle the download of multiple files natively
    • Single download button replaces both Download via FTP and Download Manager buttons in the interface
  • New FTP service for mainframe products only (going live Nov 21 @ 10:30p CST )

 

 

Discontinued Features

  • FTP protocol discontinued in EPD application -  we are no longer offering this feature because ISP’s are no long supporting FTP due to
    security concerns
  • Download Manager discontinued - we are no longer offering the Download Manger because it is no longer supported by the vendor

 

We hope that these changes will simplify the download interface and make it easier to download the files you need.

In December of 2015, BMC updated the Case Management service on our Support Central web site. On that date, all open, active Issues were migrated into Cases in the new service. To assist customers with the transition, we included the “Historical Cases” link on the Case Management page to allow access to Issue records which were closed prior to December, 2015.

 

In accordance with BMC’s internal data retention and access policies, we will be removing access to those old Issues, effective November 1, 2018. After that date, the “Historical Cases” link will no longer be available in Case Management on BMC Support Central.

 

Access to more recent Case data is not changing, only the “Historical Cases” link to Issues closed before December 2015 is being removed.

 

If you have questions about this change, please contact customer_care@bmc.com.

Computer Education Management Association – Europe (CEdMA Europe)
is the premier organization for training executives, managers, and professionals
on a management path within hardware and software companies. CEdMA Europe
includes over 200 individual members representi
ng over 50 technology companies.

We are excited to announce that CEdMA Europe has awarded BMC Software its Impact Award for a new delivery
method called Assisted Self-Paced (ASP) training. The Im
pact Award is bestowed for creative thinking and
out-of-the-box approaches and recipients must prove the idea via an actual executed project, not just an idea.  Key
criteria for making the award is the measurable impact the change has made in terms of revenue, profitability or marked
improvement in satisfaction. According to Tony Coates, Chairman for CEdMA Europe, “What BMC demonstrated to
the Board of CEdMA Europe was that when faced with a challenge, but determined to provide exemplary service to
Customers and Partners alike, BMC was brave, pragmatic and ambitious in the changes it made to its training offering.
And above all else, it acted fast. The Board was impressed most of all by the positive results.”

The BMC Education Services team rolled out the new ASP delivery method last year. The ASP format combines
recorded instructor-led videos, e-book materials, hands-on experience in virtual labs, as well as scheduled, focused
appointments with highly experienced instructors. This new delivery method allows individual students to learn BMC
technologies the way they want to, anytime and anywhere.

“The ASP format offers great flexibility by allowing our customers to schedule in-depth and hands-on training 24/7”
said Dirk Braune, Director Portfolio and Development, BMC Education.

Congratulations to the Education team on winning this prestigious Impact Award!

A large education offer like BMC´s training and certification program with more than 200 courses and certifications can sometimes look confusing. You

might ask yourself, which courses and certifications you need based on your role and responsibilities and in which order you should take them.

 

The education team has designed new graphical learning paths for our course pages on BMC.com and just released them for the major products a few

days ago. The graphical learning paths will provide a great overview of the courses by product, version and role. They will also highlight which training

courses BMC recommends and provide the recommended order and possible alternatives.

 

Below is an example of the new graphical learning path for BMC TrueSight Operations Management 10.x:
