  • Reduce time and effort by logging and cross-referencing problems directly from an incident in one click.

  • Keep all the relevant problem details, related incidents, and CMDB references in one place to have a holistic view of the issue.
  • Automatically notify your Service Desk engineers about detected problems to avoid duplication of troubleshooting efforts.

Understand the root cause of incidents

Conduct root cause analysis to prevent incidents from recurring

  • Gain a complete picture of affected services and the underlying IT infrastructure with an interactive relationship map. The map displays all related CIs, incidents, and change requests.
  • Speed up problem investigation by running your favorite network diagnostic tools directly from problem tickets. Remote into affected devices, search your internal knowledge base, Microsoft knowledge base, or just google for solutions – use our ready-to-use integrations or create your own.
