Manage data center change (Adds/Moves/Changes) with NetZoom®’s Visual Change Management to empower change management personnel and improve operational efficiency.
With NetZoom DCIM Change Management users can:
All actions performed through Change Management generate an audit trail for the device for compliance and troubleshooting.
The Change Management process begins when users initiate a change. Once a Change Request is issued, the process is driven by customizable workflows to completely automate the change management process and notify the parties to reduce the time to completion.
The work order is built as the user interactively plans the changes.
Out-of-the-box NetZoom integrates with ServiceNow and Remedy for change management service requests. Integration with other CMDBs and ticketing systems can be achieved easily with the NetZoom SDK and open schema.See More
