With dynamically changing networks, automated service mapping is the only way to go

Quick diagnosis and online troubleshooting is a challenge for many team members. In a survey of 128 IT professionals by StudioN ServiceNow and HealthID Dive, one in four said they have difficulty identifying the significant work effects associated with an interruption.

The solution to the online typing problem affects healthcare professionals as the changing environment of the Internet makes manuscripts very time-consuming and almost obsolete. However, today’s automated automation system offers an accurate and modern view of hospital work without the pain of manual disconnection.

Understanding automated service mapping

Auto-Graphics has two practical uses. The first is to identify all physical and logical objects (CI), For example B. Multiple machines, databases, applications, and servers. The second relies on intelligent software to identify all the CIs that make up the service and then create maps from one end to the other.

Three ways to automatically create a job card:

• Use procedures to determine device and application identification.

• Use user tags to create action cards.

• Use Internet traffic to identify resources and their relationships.

Of these three, the use of technology is extensive. Although the standard process requires less time and effort, it offers a more complete and comprehensive service that reflects the professionalism of the company’s IT department. Part of the value of this system is that your organization may not have a username system.

Automated service cards can analyze hospital activity in the environment and IT environment, not just one or two technical departments. However, the separation work can be done in hours rather than weeks or months, and manual execution often takes time. Finally, with automatic mapping, the system can update the topography and make changes as they occur in the network environment so that you can continue to verify its performance.

The benefits of automated service mapping

Automatic mapping reduces the time it takes to manually perform manual transitions. However, there are many other time-saving controls, including:

Less confidence in the experience

Therefore, a domain specialist must develop all the tools specified in the topic, p. For example B. server, applications, or web storage. However, automatic division of labor eliminates it.

“Automated job boards become more complex by understanding their environment and minimizing pressure on departmental professionals,” said Don Tierney, ServiceNow chief medical officer. “This reduces the risk to the company as it can rely on the knowledge of a few people.

Quickly pinpoint IT system disruptions

As mentioned above, identifying network problems is a challenge for many health institutions. However, automated service mapping using pattern recognition can identify anomalies in the network. Additional visible automated service mapping also makes it easy to identify the specific component of a service that has a problem.

For example, many healthcare facilities use VDI to deliver EHR applications to their physicians. However, it is not uncommon for server types that offer these features to experience performance issues over time. Pattern recognition enables an automated service mapping application to continuously monitor the network and its endpoints to determine when devices or systems are not working properly. And when anomalies are found, the application can automatically notify the appropriate IT staff so the problem can be resolved quickly.

Get to the root cause of a service issue

According to the survey, 54% of healthcare IT professionals said they often had trouble diagnosing the root cause of network outages.

“When you have an IT organization that can be isolated in terms of subject matter, and each with its own tools for monitoring environments and diagnosing problems, it becomes a fairly difficult task to look into an organization’s IT departments and get into it focus on a problem ” Tierney noticed it.

Since Automated Service Mapping is based on a CMBD and uses dashboards to visualize data, everyone looks at a common dataset, puts it on the same page, and makes diagnosing the cause faster and easier.

Faster time to issue resolution

Almost half (41%) of healthcare IT professionals admitted to having difficulty resolving service issues. However, automated service mapping can help significantly reduce the time it takes to identify and resolve network issues.

“This is where an automated mapping solution like ITOM from ServiceNow can really shine,” Tierney said. “Finding, analyzing, and solving a problem is a workflow problem, and that’s our whole mission: to simplify workflows.”

Using machine learning models, the application can detect anomalies and even apply automation to correct the problem, such as B. Automatically escalate the incident to the appropriate team to resolve the problem. In some cases, it is possible to directly automate the solution to a problem.

For example, if a server experiences a “memory leak” when a process is running on that server and the memory is not cleaned up after it runs, the server will start to malfunction. With an automated service mapping solution like ITOM, a business can now quickly identify this anomaly, then automatically perform tasks such as restarting the server and automatically notifying all users of the server restart to minimize or even eliminate downtime service total.

More visibility, faster remediation

Automated service mapping, especially on a single platform that manages all aspects of network monitoring, provides better network visibility. This way, you can quickly identify and resolve issues, which means less downtime on your network and happier physicians.
