CUSTOMER SUCCESS: University of Connecticut Speeds Operational 'Self Awareness' With BMC Software

HOUSTON, Nov 19, 2012 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) -- With over 21,000 students and 14 schools and colleges, the University of Connecticut (UConn) is one of America's top research universities. When UConn deployed a new financial solution and related software from the Kuali Foundation, it quickly discovered that the Kuali system's batch scheduling software was cumbersome to use and lacked important functionality.

Since the new system would be handling business critical services, such as payment requests, invoices and payroll, the university had to find a scheduling solution that could ensure these jobs would be completed on time.

After an exhaustive research and review process, UConn deployed the BMC Control-M Workload Automation suite of scheduling tools from BMC Software (Nasdaq:BMC) because of its familiarity with the robust capabilities of these products and high level of confidence that they could ensure reliable, on-time completion of jobs as well as the visibility the business users needed.

"We've used Control-M job scheduling solutions on our mainframe for more than 15 years," said Nancy Flynn, operating systems programmer/analyst for technical infrastructure at UConn. "Our job scheduling department is well versed in how they work, and the user community is aware of what Control-M can do on the mainframe. There was a big push to move onto Control-M." Flynn added, "Moving from the mainframe to distributed systems and Linux meant we faced a learning curve, but the way Control-M is organized -- with templates, and multiple tabs, and a visual outline of each job -- makes the scheduling aspects simple and straightforward." The Challenge UConn needed a feature-rich scheduling solution that would ensure on-time completion of batch jobs associated with a new, mission-critical financial application.

The Solution To obtain the capabilities needed for UConn's complex scheduling requirements and ensure that these requirements were met, UConn implemented the Control-M Workload Automation suite.

Benefits With BMC's Control-M products, UConn was able to: -- Improve the efficiency of job creation and management -- Simplify the development and customization of production schedules with templates that allowed easy modification -- Prevent service disruptions by alerting administrators so they could intervene proactively to prevent delays or errors -- Increase the reliability and security of file transfers -- Remediate security vulnerabilities associated with scheduled database back-ups For more information on the University of Connecticut's implementation and the BMC Control-M scheduling tools please: -- Read the full University of Connecticut case study -- Watch the BMC Control-M demo -- Access the BMC Control-M community -- Visit the On the Mark blog -- Follow @BMCSoftware and @BMC Control-M on Twitter -- Become a fan of BMC on Facebook Business runs on IT. IT runs on BMC Software.

Business runs better when IT runs at its best. Tens of thousands of IT organizations around the world -- from small and mid-market businesses to the Global 100 -- rely on BMC Software (Nasdaq:BMC) to manage their business services and applications across distributed, mainframe, virtual and cloud environments. BMC helps customers cut costs, reduce risk and achieve business objectives with the broadest choice of IT management solutions, including industry-leading Business Service Management and Cloud Management offerings.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
