The client envisioned a unified remote infrastructure environment which can integrate with multiple sources of information about system events with self-healing of systems and auto-remediation of incidents. Client was looking for managed services that include necessary support for monitoring tools, analysis and identification of the root cause of incidents and apply security recommendations as defined in security policies for Monitoring Infrastructure
THE BUSINESS CHALLENGE
- Manual processes and growing scale of the environment was overloading IT staff, resulting in very long time (approx. 3 days) to resolve critical incidents and growing backlog (~1000) of work requests.
- IT staff consumed with reactive tasks leaving no time for process improvement.
- Low level of integration of multiple tools and siloed repositories of information (CMDB, incident logs, ITOM) made it difficult to correctly diagnose and resolve incidents first time, resulting significant rework effort and time to close incidents.
