we're using BMC ADDM v10.2.0.2 and trying to map fields by CAM, among Web and DB instances. we're new to the CAM and following inbuilt uploaded BMC Videos onto ADDM UI.
the actual problem we're facing is we don't see any Results (3rd Screeny) when we refresh after creating the rules into functional components under DB tier. it does show the relationship between the Web server and DB into the ADDM visualization. screeny below.
Colloboration of what you are strong at and what you are not strong at is the new trend setter rather than acquiring something that would be a costly solution.
Two weeks back (ie) on 5 5 2015 had a wonderfull session on BMC SecOps by Neil Karani, an old friend of mine since 2009, where we shared many ideas on BMC Bladelogic Server Automation and what other product vendors does in this current field.
I was alware of the colloboration between Qlalis and BMC and was eager to know whats cooking in the story and whether it is actually representing the clients need, to my surprise it was really astonishing that almost everything required from the clients requirement was getting full filled.
Clients always have a third party security consultant who scans the servers and provides the CVE vulnerability results to the client on YOY/Quarterly basis.During this excercise they feel the results to be on a better level rather. but in many cases it leads to high vulnerability.
The Operations team regularly patch the servers using BMC Bladelogic Server Automation, but are not sure that they are correct only when the third party vulnerabilty check tools like Qualis scans the machine without any agents.
So this is the problem the operations and the engineering team of the organization faces, So as a solution what they do is have both the qualis aswell and the BMC Bladelogic Server Automation within the organization to get both on same page.
Challenges faced even after having Qualys and BMC Server Automation in the same Organization
1. Manual vulnerability check on the reports
2. Compare reports of both tools manully
3. Additional vulnerability on Organization specif cant be checked from both tools parallely
4. Single report for both tools
What BMC done in this?
BMC has really fantastic job calling the APIs and created a portal SecOps that does what the issues faced in the environment where they have both Qualis and BMC Server Automation for Checks and Remediation.
1. Scan the Servers using Qualys and get the results of vulnerability
2. BMC uses Shavlik(VMWare) metadata files for scanning the servers vulnerability and Qualys uses it own metadata files to scan the machines
3. Here they have combined both into a single result saying if Qualys has a vulnerability and it is not present in Shavlik it actually shows in the result that (Package not present) and you can create a manual package for the same. #JustAwesomeSolution
4. What vulnerability is there part of the system, just you can create the package and deploy from the portal that indirectly calls the BMC Server Automation at the back end to creates the patching job.
5. It gives a fantastic single and detailed report combining both BMC Bladelogic Server Automation and Qualis
I believe that all the issues that are being faced by the Engineering and the Operations team of an organization is perfectly addressed in one portal BMC SecOps

Bob Beauchamp lights the lamp at the Customer Experience Center
The grand inauguration of the Pune facility and the unveiling of the Customer Experience Center on the 5th of February, 2015, was followed by a press conference.
Bob Beauchamp leading the Press Conference
Held at the new Board Room on the 10th floor, where the CEC is set up, the press conference was led by Bob Beauchamp and Tarun Sharma amongst 10 senior journalists from top national newspapers.
The Press Conference started with a welcome note by Tarun Sharma, VP R&D, Head of BMC Software, India and Ukraine. Tarun recounted the BMC India journey and invited Bob Beauchamp, Chairman and CEO, BMC Software, Inc., to take the lead.
Bob emphasized the importance of the Customer Experience Center in India, adding, “More than 95% of the Fortune 500 companies have significant technology investments in India, and have significant number of executives visiting India every year. BMC wanted to set up a customer experience center here to provide them an immersive experience. BMC’s award-winning briefing center in Houston has been voted as one of the top briefing centers. BMC wanted to take that experience and bring it to India.”
Innovation, as highlighted by Tarun, is the strongest tenet of BMC India and would continue to provide the organization its competitive edge. Bob foresaw that the coming 5 years would see more change, innovation and disruption. According to him, the business model is being over-written by technology. By reducing costs while encouraging innovation, BMC is already at the epicentre of managing this technological disruption through its pioneering products. Thoughts that he also shared in the recently concluded World Economic Forum.
Also present at the press conference was Takeshi Mitsuishi, Chief Marketing & Sales Officer from Niscom, BMC's highly valued customer from Japan. Mitsuishi-san was delighted to be here, and was excited about sending his colleagues to India to experience first-hand, our cutting-edge technology.
Considering the current digitalization of the industry, BMC has truly brought IT to life. With ground-breaking products that support hundreds of Fortune-listed companies, BMC Software continues to be one of the top 10 software companies of the world. The new office enhances this image by encompassing collaborative elements that make innovation and work a delight for employees.
To a question from the press folks on the Office of the Future, Bob Beauchamp described the new Pune facility as ‘instantaneous’ and ‘collaborative’. Referring to the pods of collaboration and the seamless IT connectivity that encourages hot-desking, Bob echoed that this is what the Office of the Future looks like.
In conclusion, Tarun echoed BMC’s vision of Bringing IT to Life, stating that the CEC would be instrumental in taking our fourth phase of customer centricity several notches higher.
