IT Operations Management

Remove stand-alone support silos and to streamline processes across different groups.

Previously, problems might get passed around and it was easy to blame issues on another party due to lack of visibility. Now, it is easy to see exactly where the problem lies and work with relevant teams to resolve an issue.

Network Engineering and Architecture

With a centralized monitoring team and a strategy improve time to resolve, this customer has significantly reduced the number of monitoring tools it uses.

Before deploying DX Spectrum and other CA solutions, identifying the root cause of incidents was almost impossible, meaning they were never fully resolved and problems often reoccurred.
