Ayehu Software, successful developer and marketer of innovative, enterprise-class IT process automation solutions has announced the most recent nominee of its Super Hero of the Month award. This month, the company has chosen two worthy recipients: Alex Yaney
and Ben Scherer of LexisNexis. The two colleagues were chosen for their forward-thinking use of IT process automation to improve operations for their teams.
In their critical roles as Sr. Solutions Architect (Alex) and Sr. Systems Engineer (Ben), the two men were running into similar issues using ServiceNow and Orion. Each of them found the process of incident management cumbersome and time consuming. They recognized that they needed an additional solution that would streamline the process for themselves and their teams, making operations much more efficient and reducing incident response time.
They chose Ayehu after researching and finding that the eyeShare product was recommended by SolarWinds. In October last year, the pair officially led the implementation of eyeShare, after testing the product for the previous six months with great results. They began by automating incident creation, including volume, CPU/RAM, and application specific needs. Then, they moved on to automated volume and disk growth. The results of this, and the success in tying their existing systems together, were just what the duo were looking for.
“Having direct access to ServiceNow and Orion has made integration between the two systems possible within an hour or two,” commented Yaney. “Automating disk growth was the next big win. Even though this process is complicated, we were able to create a dynamic way to grow server drives while still communicating the details within our ITSM with updates and even feedback from a customer if more information is needed.”
“With the eyeShare product, communicating with ServiceNow has become very fluid, so creating tickets and tracking their status is very easy to accomplish in a very short amount of time. Not only did this save us a large amount of development hours to integrate Solarwinds Orion with ServiceNow, but it will also reduce the support hours needed as these systems require future upgrades”
“The most exciting part is that we are only on the cusp of what we can potentially achieve using IT process automation The future is certainly looking bright!”
The Super Hero of the Month award is given as a way to recognize those in the IT industry that are successfully driving their businesses forward through enhanced automation technology. Anyone who uses the Ayehu eyeShare product is eligible to receive the award.
