Business Challenge

In today's complex business environment, undetected and unresolved IT and service impacting events can be devastating. Mobile IT personnel are stretched to support expanding infrastructure. Inadequate alerting, manual resolution processes, human error, and inaccurate data contribute to slow, costly and reactive resolution processes. Providing real-time event notification and information to the right person, anywhere, on any device,
and ensuring resolution ownership is the productivity challenge.

Business Need

  • Speed event resolution by ensuring incidents are properly assigned; resolution is coordinated
  • Tie IT events to business users and provide an auditable trail of the event resolution process
  • Inform all affected users of the time-to-fix, completed fix and other appropriate information
