Features

Improve BMC Remedy CMDB Accuracy with Real-Time Data

Maintaining an accurate CMDB is very difficult, as the IT environment is highly dynamic. Tools such as discovery and other process automation applications help maintain the picture by replacing certain manual functions with computer programs. However, there are many processes that cannot be replaced by automatic tools. Incidents, Tasks, and Approvals must be managed every day by people who do not sit behind a desk. Asset receipts, decommissioning, shipping, transfers, MAC and other daily asset operations must be tracked as they occur to maintain a consistent configuration map of asset resources.

The Splitware Mobility Platform facilitates ALL of your critical business operations, arming your entire workforce with the ability to access relevant information whenever needed, wherever they may be located.

Features

  • A direct API integration to the BMC Action Request System
  • Conflict-detecting synchronization process that preserves data integrity
  • Sophisticated caching capability that enables fully functional offline operation
  • Native mobile applications with a robust and fully customizable user interface
  • AES-256 encryption for both data-at-rest and over-the-air data transfer, as well as device-side user logins and application locking that help make up a fully secure mobile system
  • A superior user experience

BMC Remedy Mobile Custom Application

Splitware for Custom Applications

Mobile Custom Application

The Splitware Mobility Platform integrates directly with the BMC Remedy ARS API, providing the ability to extend any BMC Remedy application to a mobile device. The mobile user interface can be custom-designed around any fields and functionality appropriate for the use cases and the needs of the mobile end-users. A variety of features can be incorporated to ensure an intuitive, error-minimizing user experience.
Key Features
Field Validation When field values are entered or updated on a mobile device, the mobile application can require certain criteria to be followed to guide a valid response.
Pattern Recognition As a component of field validation, fields can require data entry to follow certain textual patterns. This is particularly useful when using data capture tools like a barcode scanner; users will not be able to scan the wrong barcode into a field.
Audio Feedback The usage of tones, beeps, and other audio feedback is extremely useful and important in a variety of mobile environments, especially those where visual/screen cues may be difficult to see.
Offline Operation Splitware fully supports 100% offline data collection by caching critical information onto the mobile device.
Device Access Because Splitware applications are native to the device, they are able to take advantage of device features, such as fingerprint pads, GPS units, etc.
Dependent Operations Mobile Splitware™ applications can tie fields and actions together so that certain actions may only occur based on data entered. These types of controls provide a great amount of process alignment to ensure operational correctness.
