How Virima makes a difference

Virima plays a unique role in this digital transformation journey. While ServiceNow™ AIOps brings the power of artificial intelligence to IT operations. Virima complements this with robust IT asset discovery, Service Mapping, ViVID™, and other features. 

Virima integrates effortlessly with the ServiceNow™ platform, and the integration is 100% codeless, making it seamless and convenient. Additionally, it provides versatility in Discovery options, be it agentless IP-based scans or via API integrations with hypervisor, cloud, network, storage, and monitoring solutions.

Exceptional benefits of combining Virima with ServiceNow™ AIOps

Enhanced visualization

Virima’s advanced service mapping, in conjunction with Visual Impact Display (ViVID™), brings in extraordinary business service dependency and relationship mapping. It provides consumable views of automatically generated infrastructure relationships, service dependencies, network topologies, and system communications. Coupled with ServiceNow™ AIOps, it can quickly deliver impact analysis of planned changes and identify the root causes of service disruptions, radically reducing the resolution time.

High data accuracy and accessibility

With Virima, enterprises can keep their ServiceNow™ CMDB accurate and updated. This integration offers powerful capabilities that facilitate precise mapping to ServiceNow™ tables, ensuring data accuracy and availability.

Virima operates with automated discovery and mapping techniques. It leverages a machine learning approach employed by Virima Discovery to graphically represent application dependencies and infrastructure relationships. Any changes made in the CMDB data are automatically reflected in the service map, thereby maintaining data accuracy.

Virima’s Autonomic Social Discovery (ASD) ensures and enhances data accuracy. Acting as an intelligent tool, the ASD automates the process of gathering crucial asset information that cannot be auto-discovered, such as asset lifecycle status, ownership information, business criticality, policies, and Service Level Agreements (SLAs). 

Its key feature is the ‘Data Integrity Check’ that ensures completeness and accuracy of asset information. The system continually learns from prior experiences to enhance data gathering, with its algorithms predicting the best resource for future intelligence collection. This integrity checking and adaptive learning augment data validity, improve compliance, and enhance the reliability of reports generated for business decision-making.

Virima’s Visual Impact Display (ViVID™) presents an encompassing view of IT infrastructure, dependencies, and business services. It overlays ITSM records and vulnerabilities, providing immediate views of assets with open incidents or recent changes. This visually enriched data accessibility facilitates swift identification of service disruptions and potential impacts of changes on services.

Collaboration nexus with ViVID™

Virima Visual Impact Display (ViVID™) turns service maps into collaborative platforms. It centralizes crucial data, acting as a collaboration nexus. By integrating incidents, changes, alerts, and vulnerabilities into dynamic application and service dependency maps, it promotes seamless communication and informed decision-making. It unites everyone, from stakeholders discussing change management to teams addressing incident responses and asset configurations.

Root cause and impact analysis with service maps

Virima’s Service Mapping works closely with Discovery and CMDB to identify Configuration Items (CIs) that support a service and their service-specific relationships. This integrated approach ensures that the CMDB maintains high data accuracy and provides comprehensive service maps.

ViVID™ helps expedite troubleshooting and incident resolution. It rapidly pinpoints the origin of disruptions, ensuring prompt service restoration and minimal impact on productivity. This advantage is particularly significant in visual change management, where ViVID™’s insightful overlays empower IT managers to anticipate potential risks when proposing infrastructure modifications.

Relationship and dependency map for each CI in the reliably built CMDB

ViVID™ does more than just simplify IT Asset and Service Management — it transforms your CMDB. It decodes the vast IT ecosystem by visualizing every asset, application, and their dependencies. 

It encourages interdepartmental collaboration, fostering a cohesive IT environment. Moreover, its advanced machine learning accurately draws the connections between applications and infrastructure, providing a clear understanding of complex IT landscapes and a true CMDB.

Proactive event management

ViVID™ enhances proactive event management by providing overlays of system management and monitoring alerts on service maps. This visualization helps assess the alert’s potential upstream and downstream impact on business services and prioritize the response based on the asset Service Value Rating (SVR).

Seamless integration with ITSM

Virima works smoothly with ServiceNow™, identifying which business services and service assets have open incidents. This integration promotes quick identification of service interruptions’ root cause and ensures timely recovery.

Furthermore, it integrates with system monitoring tools, displaying real-time alerts that could impact service availability. These automatic updates make data easily accessible and augment the ability to act promptly.
