Control-M for Distributed Systems
The BMC Assisted MIGration Offering, or AMIGO, is a program designed to assist our customers in planning and preparing for product upgrades from a currently supported version, 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.
If currently on an unsupported version, it will be necessary to review the Migration Guide for options to get to the latest supported version. Open a regular Support case at www.bmc.com/support for specific technical questions.
The AMIGO program consists of a Starter Phase and a Review Phase. Each phase is initiated by opening an AMIGO 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.
To proceed with your AMIGO Starter case, please download the attached Upgrade Spreadsheet and fill in the details on the upgrade checklist tab. Send a copy for review and BMC Support will contact you to review your upgrade details.
You can open the AMIGO Starter case by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, our support site or calling 1-800-537-1813. Please be sure to include the word “AMIGO” in the description of your issue.
