I have heared that Marimba will get the OS Deployment functionality form Numara in the release 8.5.
when you read in gartner they believe that BBCA will be replaced by Numara, but i do not think so as BBCA has so large companies which are using it. and also in the past month there was a lot of activity form the BBCA, so that i do not think that BBCA will be replaced.
but if someone has more detailed information would be appreciated to hear about it
As of now BMC has no plans to add OS deployment functionality from Numara into BBCA. As soon as the 8.5 roadmap is finalized we will share it.
Even thou BMC is no longer selling Matrix42, we are still supporting our customers who bought Matrix42 till the end
of their current support contract period and will work with them to transition them to Matrix42, if they wish to.
If now we want to add OS deployment functionality added in our existing BBCA infrastructure then what would be the procedure? After Matrix42 is discontinued by BMC, we are left with Footprints only which cannot be integrated with BBCA. Please suggest a solution in this scenario.
Rajesh, in case your current customers need OS deployment capability would BMC be able to transition them to Matrix42.
I realize the gap which you have pointed out.
We are working on addressing that gap and will be able to share more details after a few weeks.
