When a critical incident happens, a speedy response is key. However, analyzing the root cause of an incident is often a cross-team effort and requires speaking to other subject matter experts or engineers of other teams.
Enterprise Alert provides convenient mobile anywhere access to all people that matter: experts, other engineers on call, managers and even affected users. With a single touch of a button you can connect via phone, chat or text message. No need to scroll directories or search an address book. All contacts you need are easily accessible.
A phone conference is just one-click away. Simply select the people you want to talk to and press the phone conference button…
ChatOps with Skype for Business and Lync
When you connect Enterprise Alert to SfB, it automatically registers as a SfB user and creates a ChatBot. The Enterprise Alert ChatBot can alert users via IM. The user can now start communicating with the ChatBot and submit commands for alert management. Acknowledgement or Closing of an alert are possible out-of-the-box. The alerted user can also invite other peers and experts to this conversation, thus automatically sharing the incident alert with others.
The solution is extensible through the Application Programming Toolkit of Enterprise Alert. You can add any command you want to control other systems and execute actions. Enterprise Alert is able to parse incoming IMs and then trigger actions like
creating an incident ticket in SCSM, HPE Service Manager or ServiceNow
execute a batch job on a server
trigger an automation job in SCO or Azure
