BMC announced the availability of the BMC Helix Cognitive Service Management solution on Microsoft Azure, using the power of containers. Enterprises can now run BMC Helix on their cloud of choice, including Azure, AWS, and BMC Cloud.

We are taking our collaboration to the next level with this new capability to run Helix on Microsoft Azure.”

With the new support for Azure, BMC is enabling enterprises to transform ITSM into cognitive service management in the cloud of their choice, and leverage the power of containers to provide a scalable and elastic service platform that simplifies the management of their increasingly complex IT environments.
