Ayehu Software Names Tomer Aharoni of Bank Hapoalim Ltd. as Latest ITPA Super Hero

IT Process Automation Super HeroAyehu, industry leading developer and marketer of enterprise-grade IT process automation and orchestration solutions for IT and security professionals, has announced the latest recipient of its ITPA Super Hero Award. This time, Ayehu has selected Tomer Aharoni of Bank Hapoalim. Tomer was chosen for how he has leveraged IT automation to create more efficient, streamlined business processes for his team.

As Monitoring and Automation Team Leader, Tomer is no stranger to automation technology. Yet, despite his knowledge and experience, his team was still struggling with long IT processes that were made even more complicated by the many disparate systems being used. Prior to using the Ayehu automation and orchestration platform, Tomer and his team were bogged down by manual script writing. He knew it was a tremendous waste of their time and resources.

About two years ago, Tomer, with the full support of his managers, decided it was time to start turning things around and leveraging the available advances in technology to his advantage. Jumping right in, he decided to start by automating the entire incident management process. He used Ayehu’s out-of-the-box features and simple drag-and-drop templates to create automated workflows in place of manual scripting. The system can now open, update and close tickets with built-in checkpoints for long recovery processes.

The result of Tomer’s automation strategy has been a closed-loop solution that is designed to quickly respond to and remediate events as soon as they occur. This has resulted in less downtime and much faster mean time to repair (MTTR). Now he and his team can feel confident that system recovery is taken care of so they can focus their efforts on other important IT initiatives.

“The Ayehu platform has made it so much easier for us to perform our duties in a way that is fast, efficient and accurate,” comments Tomer. “Now, we can enjoy quick recovery and a more streamlined infrastructure thanks to the integration between our monitoring systems and automation platform.”

Ayehu’s IT Automation Super Hero Award is given in recognition of IT professionals who utilize automation technology to improve the way their teams, departments and organizations run. Anyone in any industry who uses the eyeShare product is eligible to receive this coveted award.

Ayehu Names Scott Miller of Medline as Latest ITPA Super Hero

MedlineAyehu, industry leading provider of enterprise-grade IT process automation and orchestration platform for IT and security professionals, has named the latest recipient of its ITPA Super Hero Award. For this round, Ayehu has chosen Scott Miller of Medline. Scott was selected for his use of IT process automation to create more efficient, streamlined business processes for himself and his team.

In his role as System/Application Administrator, one of Scott’s most time-consuming tasks involves managing a high volume of alerts, something he and the rest of his team worked through very basic technology. The biggest issue they were experiencing came from the escalation process. There were many delays and it was difficult to trace back who was accountable for what once alerts were sent out. Not only did this get confusing, but it was also a huge waste of valuable time.

After trying out a few other products on the market and realizing relatively quickly that they were not a good fit, Scott came across the Ayehu platform while conducting a web search and decided to give it a try. The first two critical workflows he and his team automated were the notification escalation process (including SMS messaging and voice calls) and critical incident notification via Twilio – a platform that Ayehu  integrates seamlessly with. They followed that up with the creation of self-healing remediation routines which are triggered to run whenever certain alerts are received.

Scott and team have been using the Ayehu automation and orchestration platform successfully for nearly a year and has been very pleased with the results. The team particularly appreciated how quickly they were able to ramp up and implement the platform to its fullest functionality. Now, with technology doing most of the heavy lifting, Scott and his colleagues have been able to enjoy much more creativity in the solutions process. They plan to continue automating wherever appropriate.

“Ayehu has completely changed the way were creating notification workflows and messaging,” comments Scott. “Prior to implementing Ayehu eyeShare, the process was tedious, inflexible and limited to technology that was almost a decade old. In other words, it was incredibly frustrating. Now we are free to focus our skills and abilities on more important projects without having to worry that alerts are being handled efficiently and effectively. ”
