BladeLogic Network Automation 8.x: Fundamentals (ASP)

Note: This course was formerly titled, BMC BladeLogic Network Automation 8.6: Foundation

Organizations depend on high performance across their network to keep the business running at peak efficiency, but new security threats make it hard for network administrators to keep pace with the demands for new services and safeguard the health of the network. BMC BladeLogic Network Automation helps Operations reduce network outages and downtime by automating configuration, change, and compliance processes.

This is a three-day assisted self-paced training that allows participants to refer to the course material and perform hands-on labs at their own pace to get the feel of an environment along with the product knowledge. This course introduces students to how to use BMC BladeLogic Network Automation to administer networks on a day-to-day basis. In-depth presentations and product demonstrations show students key concepts, methods, and procedures that enable network security and efficiency.

All Assisted Self-paced courses can also be delivered as private, instructor-led courses dedicated to a single customer. Please contact your Education Sales Rep or education@bmc.com for information on this option.
