KPN, a Dutch landline and mobile telecommunications company, has experienced rapid customer growth, causing enormous usage of ServiceNow as a support platform. High volumes of data, complexity of architecture, and cost to support forced KPN to review how data is shared across the business. KPN signed on with Perspectium to integrate the ITSM tool with numerous endpoints, including Splunk, Oracle, SAP BusinessObjects, and KPN’s master data management (MDM) solutions. Using new integrations, KPN can transfer massive amounts of data between ServiceNow and other platforms, simplify the architecture complexity through a common data model, and reduce their total cost of ownership.
Management at AbbVie, a research-driven biopharmaceutical company, needed to provide insight on incident management and SLA targets to business units. The existing scheduled XML bulk-data imports were not allowing AbbVie the visibility conveyed through real-time reporting. As they looked for a solution, AbbVie placed a priority on the performance, volume, and accuracy of data transferred between ServiceNow and Oracle. Using Perspectium, AbbVie solved the reporting challenge, giving them the ability to get more accurate data into Oracle and more accurate business intelligence for their users.
For their ITSM reporting needs, Mentor Graphics, an electronic design automation (EDA) corporation, encountered errors and server stress when reporting in their ITSM tool. Mentor chose Perspectium for transferring data from that ITSM tool to a SQL database. This popular and reliable Perspectium use case gives Mentor enhanced reporting ability. Also, the message-queuing integration lets Mentor avoid performance impacts on the ITSM tool, which must remain available and responsive for company-wide activity.
A major mobile communications company had so many sources data-collection and data-sharing sources that it weakened their ability to effectively populate and maintain a single enterprise CMDB and share that data with their ITSM platform. Previous attempts at solving the problem through integrations internally were unsuccessful. Using Perspectium, the customer will sync vast amounts of ITSM data to a centrally managed CMDB.
Companies are realizing the value of integration as a service, as Perspectium’s approach to solving the data-silo crisis continues to gain momentum. With a second investment from TVC Capital, we raised $8 million in Series B funding, which enables us to continue our expansion to launch a new series of on-demand products and to more fully serve you.
In addition to numerous outlets carrying the press release, several did their own telling of this story, including VentureBeat, Xconomy, San Diego Union-Tribune, and San Diego Business Journal.
Our new product, ServiceBond for AWS, integrates IT support between Amazon Web Services (AWS) and a customer’s ServiceNow service management system. You can use your existing ITSM systems to create, view, update and resolve AWS cases without having to separately access the AWS Support Portal.
We’ve been innovating and bursting at the seams in the past year, as we added big-name customers like Pepsi, Southwest Airlines, and maybe even you! Check out the impressive backstory on the founding of Perspectium by David Loo and the company’s subsequent growth in this article by the San Diego Union-Tribune.
Why do integrations fail or thrive? How can you plan for the health of your integrations? Consider both the negative and positive sides of integration health—why integration health sometimes fails and, instead, how integrations can thrive.
We put our own solution to the test and reduced resolution duration by 76%. Our customer services team needed better visibility into incidents and SLA. Using our own solution, we integrated our ITSM tool to a database for reporting.
When you consider why prior integrations fail, you can plan better for what a successful integration solution will look like. Watch this short video to learn the five most common threats to integrations.
