Question: 

 

Can a single instance of CABI (CA Business Intelligence) 6.x (Jaspersoft) be used for multiple CA Products?

 

 

Answer: 

 

Quick answer: Yes, but only within product suites.

IM BU (Infrastructure Management Business Unit) is comprised of all the IM Products like: 
Spectrum 
Service Operation Insight 
UIM (Not currently supported but will be added down the road)

CA Service Management is comprised of the rest: 

CA Service Desk Manager 
CA IT Asset Manager 
CA Service Catalog 
CA Asset Portfolio Management 
CA Service Management 


CA Configuration Automation currently does not support or have support for CABI 6.x. 

IM BU can use a single instance of CABI 6.x. So Spectrum and SOI for example can share the same install. We suggest installing the SOI version and integrating Spectrum into that. 

A single instance of CABI can be used for the CA Service Management suite of products.
