BMC Helix ITSM (Remedy)

The BMC remedy perfectly fits the need of an IT department following the ITIL service management standards in any industry. It can also be used in facilities management and operations management. I do not recommend it for managing banking and financial institution operations or supply chain and logistics operations.I have personally used it at 2 different large scale IT departments operating in the higher education sector.

Ivanti IT Asset Management Suite

Ivanti ITAM suite is very robust and offers all the features you need in an ITAM solution. Out of the box, you get all you need, but you are able to customize and add processes that are missing very easily. It will work for any organization, regardless of complexity. We have the full suite of Ivanti products and there are nice integration options that make usage very seamless.

Pros

BMC Helix ITSM (Remedy)

  • Remedy is great for housing much of the ITIL process in one System: if you want a complete package with every bell and every whistle, Remedy is for you
  • Remedy breaks down the functions of ITIL into "consoles": separate areas of the System, that allow one to focus on Changes, Incidents, Assets, etc
  • The interface is VERY compatible with legacy web browser tech: The last surviving member of the browser wars is still the favorite for remedy users: IE 11

Cons

BMC Helix ITSM (Remedy)

  • Expandability is limited and once you make certain customizations the upgrade process can become difficult or impossible
  • Relationships between Configuration Items and Changes is clunky and difficult to setup/maintain
  • Service Desk functionality is not as robust as other tools and does not allow for easy configurations/customizations

  • Licensing can be complex and is fairly expensive. I did not research other ITAM solutions as we use the entire Ivanti suite to see how pricing compares, but it does seem expensive.
  • Be careful when you are building you CMDB module in the Ivanti Service Desk tool, we found the hard way that create custom CI processes requires an ITAM license.
  • We have submitted a few bugs and the resolution from support seems slow. I find this is common with many vendors, but was hoping for better resolution times with Ivanti.

At least Remedy is all contained in a single platform, so the interface is consistent. Also, the most heavily performed functions are generally usable. However, to use some of the more advanced modules can be a bit more cumbersome (such as Change Management and CMDB (Not Including ADDM)). So, overall BMC Remedy ITSM is better than some applications like CA SDM or HP SM, but not quite on par with ServiceNow.

The support is good in overall resolving the issues and even in the deployment phase. We are able to use it in production without any trained in-house engineer as the support team gets the job done. We can say that experts completed the deployment for us, and now it is functional.

Alternatives Considered

BMC Helix ITSM (Remedy)

I used Salesforce case Management system which is a powerful tool where we can automate many things that we can't do in BMC Remedy. I do suggest to introduce Escalation Management system within BMC remedy so that most of the clients might utilize. I haven't used any other tools which will track the incidents or tickets.

Return on Investment

BMC Helix ITSM (Remedy)

  • Identifying trends quickly is a big deal and gets people back to work quickly.
  • The identifying trends is a big deal but it's useless if you do not have the capability to notify support staff. BMC/Remedy/ITSM has a very reliable notification system and is very customization.
  • The fact that BMC/Remedy/ITSM is customized for every need and is able to create standalone applications, helps ROI.
  • I have seen companies and the government spend millions of dollars on applications for very specify jobs, that BMC/Remedy/ITSM could do by customizing ITSM or creating a standalone Remedy application at a fraction of the cost. Plus there is no need to pay for support for the other application.

Ivanti IT Asset Management Suite

  • We have seen tremendous ROI with custom processes set up to manage the lifecycle of our assets. This was a huge void for us previously and now we can see when assets are coming/going and when they should be retired.
  • Integration with other apps via API has allowed us to automate manual tasks and streamline processes.
  • Tie-ins with the CMDB function of Service Desk have allowed us to create dynamic workflows to manage the lifecycle of assets and other related assets. Very powerful use case.
