BMC’s Control-M Delivers Simplified Management for SAP® Workloads

Control-M extends support to SAP S/4HANA® to improve digital enterprise agility

HOUSTON – November 8, 2016 – BMC, the global leader in IT solutions for the digital enterprise, today announced innovations designed to help companies faced with an increasing list of applications and platforms that need to be managed and integrated with their SAP® ecosystem. Control-M, the market-leading application workload automation platform from BMC, now features support for SAP S/4HANA® and SAP Financial Closing cockpit (FCc.) By delivering the key capabilities necessary to drive SAP across the enterprise, BMC's Control-M for SAP solution automates the SAP workloads at the core of business operations around the world.

"Control-M is at the intersection of infrastructure, data, and applications, and we continue to develop innovations that improve the experience for our Control-M customers," said Gur Steif, president, Workload Automation at BMC. "These new capabilities ensure that Control-M can support our customers' SAP environment today and in the future with simplified and automated management."

"Control-M provides Eaton with outstanding uptime and helps us do business in over 170 countries worldwide," said Larry E. Hicks, manager, data center services, IT infrastructure, Eaton. "Our major ERP Systems are SAP, Oracle, and MFGPRO. We are very pleased with the Control-M performance and ability to be a single workload automation solution. We would also acknowledge the BMC support for newer technologies such as SAP S/4HANA, Oracle R12, Managed File Transfer, Web Service Client, and Hadoop. We are confident Control-M will be able to support our environment as we move forward."

By adding support for SAP Financial Closing cockpit, customers can reduce the amount of manual effort and streamline their month-end closing. With the addition of SAP S/4HANA support, the Control-M for SAP solution extends its capability to automate and manage SAP application workloads to the next generation SAP platform. These new features build upon existing support for SAP BusinessObjects™, SAP R/3®, SAP Process Integration, SAP Business Warehouse, and SAP Data Archiving.

With BMC's Control-M solution, organizations can integrate SAP HANA® workflows with a wide range of applications in the SAP portfolio, like Concur and Fieldglass, through a single point of control. The Control-M solution also allows organizations to schedule and manage SAP services according to business priorities. Slowdowns and failures are detected with predictive analytics and intelligent monitoring of SAP workflows, before service delivery is interrupted.

The new Control-M for SAP features are the latest in a series of enhancements to BMC's digital enterprise automation solutions. In September 2016, BMC announced new Control-M features including capabilities for more unified, highly-efficient file transfer, optimized rapid cloud deployment for AWS and Azure, and a new Automation API with expanded 'Jobs-as-Code' capabilities for DevOps teams.
