BOULDER, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--VictorOps, the real-time incident management company, today announced a new integration with ServiceNow, the enterprise IT cloud services company. For the first time, ServiceNow users can immediately automate incident response management using VictorOps tools.
As the premier platform for tracking large scale operations projects through many stakeholders and departments of the enterprise, ServiceNow’s asynchronous workflow is tailored for long duration problems. VictorOps is a real-time situation room for an organization’s on-call staff as they collaboratively solve infrastructure problems. Using the VictorOps plugin for ServiceNow, a ticket can be created when a problem occurs within ServiceNow directly, which then triggers an escalation in VictorOps. The VictorOps platform then seamlessly captures every action of the remediation, including important troubleshooting facts, and all pertinent information about the incident.
Additionally, with the VictorOps integration, all updates and data are completed automatically to the status of the ServiceNow ticket, including the remediation data. Post-mortem reporting can be attached to the ServiceNow ticket later along with other important information about the changes made in ServiceNow to form a complete story around the incident.
“ServiceNow works well for asynchronous ticket-based troubleshooting, but modern businesses and those embracing a DevOps culture require synchronicity to quickly remediate problems,” said Joni Klippert, vice president, product, VictorOps. “The VictorOps turn-key integration with ServiceNow solves the pain of manual paging and escalation in the incident remediation process. Manually running down a call sheet is not something that today’s businesses can afford to do. Through VictorOps, this can be automated with little effort on the part of ServiceNow users.”
Features of the incident management solution include:
- Automated Dialing and Escalation: Automated dialing and incident routing are an integral part of any incident management solution.
- Sophisticated Routing: VictorOps allows ServiceNow users to more efficiently route alarms to teams that have the specific domain expertise to remediate the problem at hand.
- Situational Awareness: With the bi-directional integration, team members are able to capture what happens in both VictorOps and ServiceNow, enabling them to reduce Mean-Time-to-Resolution (MTTR).
The VictorOps integration with ServiceNow is available today. To download the plugin or learn more about it, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
