Large complex organisation, with complex technology that needs to manage Technology Services. It is very flexible and able to manage a large complex environment but the knowledge required to set this up correctly (foundation data and configuration) is the key factor for success. It can integrate with many other systems and tools and integrate data from many sources - whether that be AWS cloud, or an on premises bespoke system. I would not recommend for a Small Organisation without the resources to set up and maintain the underlying foundation data and configuration.

Appropriate for SAP hrs hierarchy integration and can have multiple hierarchies of org structures adopted as alternative workflow support. Cons of access control are the logs of firefighter usage are still limited in depth and does not evolve to adop more cloud products which are coming at a plaster pace than the ac product as such.

Read full review Cons The interface (ironically). My company has made an attempt to replace the "classic" Remedy interface with some more functional, modern, but Remedy set to a particular look and feel (and consequently, functionality) The API is hidden from the user: There exists an API for Remedy, that would make my job TONS easier, as I like to perform actions on Remedy in bulk (and therefore - programmatically). Exposing a user API is very much mainstream these days, so Remedy relying on its interface to perform ITIL is very limiting By extension- the result of Remedy's interface is that it becomes very "click-happy": little buttons, and links stuffed into every corner of the screen, with options API logically together. API is old, but it still feels very rushed. The primary tool for most of my ITIL operations is: searching. API of searching goes into finding assets, checking in equipment, finding users, tickets, etc. What Remedy could very much benefit from a "Google" -like interface Read full review It still uses the webdynpro for the front end. All webdynpro applications should be migrated to Fiori for a better user experience. Some functionalities can't manage in mass way. I.E. building derive roles/multiple single roles, Interface with LDAP is not efficient. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
We have been customers of BMC for well over 7 years now and our corporation is tightly integrated with BMC and multiple solutions they offer us.

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.

This is a great tool for a medium to large sized company. SAP Access Control requires a great deal of SAP knowledge to use, but it is certainly information that can be learned. Their customer support is wonderful and easy to work with. The overall usability is great. I greatly recommend this software.

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.

This product fulfills all our requirements. We can use this for user management, role management, risk analysis, business role management, workflow management. Initial configuration takes a lot of effort. Otherwise it's a great product for the end user. SAP Access Control tool performance needs improvement, sometimes it slows down the processing time for requests.

The decision to select BMC Remedy was made prior to my employment. We did conduct an RFC process for a new ITSM platform and BMC was considered but not selected. We looked at several platforms and ended up choosing Ivanti Service Desk (previously LANDESK) due to the features, ease of customization and price.

Pricing was higher for the cloud version of the BTP service - IAG. SAP Access Control pretty much facilitates everything we are looking for as an enterprise with an efficient dollar cost ROI for the services we are looking for. Also, there were many features on the cloud version which came bundled with the license and we had to pay for them even though we did not actually use these products.

Again, always room for improvement, but a very stable product none-the-less.
Read full review Return on Investment When I was in Management discussion calls, and all the team is happy while using BMC Remedy so I don't find any specific negative impact on our organization. I really enjoy Smart IT as the tool of choice for our incident management team. Visibility of tickets is key. All support staff users can see tickets in consoles they have access to. Read full review Reducing risk of fraud. Implementing SAP Access Control allows analysis of every role assigned to a job on the organization. Through this analysis, weakness on roles are detected, corrected and monitored. As the users feel the change, they also feel that they are being monitored, preventing any intent to use his position and privileges to take personal advantage. So a major impact to organizations is to reduce the financial lost due to frauds. Reducing cost for monitoring. Another positive impact is lowering the cost of monitoring. This is twofold: First, a rather small team can manage access management. Second, through the use of SAP Access Control the complete universe of roles and users can be monitored without increasing the cost for the continuous monitoring. During transactions. The use of SAP Access Controls allows detection of transactions that, from an information security point of view, require some redesign. When SAP GCR is implemented, you make some discoveries such as: obsolete transactions, transactions with no authorization objects and the like. The transactions with these problems can be left out of the active roles, waiting for remediation of the issues found. Read full review ScreenShots
