BMC announced its BMC Helix service and operations management platform has achieved Federal Risk Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Moderate authorization for the BMC Helix v 21.3 in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud.

The BMC Helix solution in the AWS cloud allows federal agencies to choose BMC for their seamless, secure cloud migrations as they face ever-changing and demanding missions.

The BMC Helix platform is designed for organizations looking to:

- Modernize the enterprise by accelerating the shift to the cloud, optimizing existing on-premises solutions, and enabling further innovation

- Find and solve problems faster, support high-velocity DevOps teams, and drive innovation with AI-powered service management and IT operations (AIOps) from the AWS cloud

In addition to previously authorized service management capabilities, governmental customers will now be able to capitalize on BMC’s innovative, industry-leading operations management capabilities in the cloud.

“This authorization reflects the close coordination between BMC and our extensive customer base, providing the innovative software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions they need to modernize their enterprise IT systems. Our partnership with AWS is a critical part of this capability. Together, we offer unimpeachable service and operations management SaaS solutions to our federal agencies,” said David Sims, Area VP and GM of BMC Federal. “We are honored to provide our government customers this broader set of BMC Helix capabilities with FedRAMP Moderate authorization that accelerates their cloud initiatives and offers the highest levels of agility, scalability, and confidence to achieve program and mission success.”
