Dell EMC OpenManage Integration with ServiceNow


Overview

Dell EMC OpenManage Integration with ServiceNow helps enterprise organizations in improving their operations efficiency by bridging the gap between their service and operations management processes. It is a native application within the ServiceNow platform that provides seamless interface between OpenManage Enterprise infrastructure management capabilities and ServiceNow service and operations management capabilities. OpenManage Enterprise is a one-to-many systems management console that provides comprehensive, unified lifecycle management for Dell EMC PowerEdge Modular Infrastructure, rack and tower servers. The integration provides automation capabilities to transfer data between these two platforms, helping operations and service management teams in faster detection, diagnosis and resolution of issues that impacts the business services and the IT infrastructure health.

With this integration, operation and service management teams will be able to keep themselves abreast of the technical support tickets that have been raised with Dell support and track their progress from incident to resolution.
