Prognosis Now Certified for Integration with ServiceNow

August 12 2014, Sydney, Australia - Integrated Research (ASX:IRI) today announced it has received certification of its integration with ServiceNow. Certification by ServiceNow signifies that Prognosis has successfully completed a set of defined tests focused on integration interoperability, security and performance. The certification also ensures best practices are utilized in the design and implementation of Prognosis integration with ServiceNow.


The integration enables customers of Integrated Research to use ServiceNow IT service automation to reduce incident resolution times, as well as improve reporting and upgrade capacity planning for their Unified Communications (UC) ecosystems.


Prognosis performance management software provides enterprises, service providers and contact centers with real-time insights into UC assets such as IP phones, gateways and PBXs. The software populates the ServiceNow configuration management database (CMDB) with UC data, enabling companies to eliminate inconsistencies between data sources, gain deep insights into their asset portfolios and identify opportunities to make improvements.


“Once entered into the CMDB, information from UC assets is synchronized and updated automatically to enable full lifecycle management and Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) compliance,” says John Dunne, Vice President of Products, Integrated Research. “IT operations teams will also be able to use an automated solution to reduce the time needed to resolve voice and UC incidents and avoid costly escalations.”


Prognosis partners welcomed the integration, which deepens the functionality and performance of the already market-leading software. “By integrating with ServiceNow, the deep UC capabilities of Prognosis are extended to a new level of operational support and have paved the way to deliver additional value to our customers,” says Henry Feusi, Director of Managed Services, Presidio.


“We look forward to working with Integrated Research to increase efficiencies within our Managed Services offering by leveraging the rich data delivered into ServiceNow through Prognosis,” Feusi adds. “The Prognosis integration with ServiceNow will allow Presidio resources to have a higher level of visibility amongst a larger target audience, increasing efficiencies during trouble resolution with increased impact for awareness and changes to the UC environment.”


Prognosis also bridges the operations gap between vendors by offering ‘single pane of glass’ management across Avaya, Cisco, and Microsoft Lync UC ecosystems and complements the robust ServiceNow portfolio of cloud-based IT service automation solutions.
