Integrations & Interfaces

At Cormant, we recognize that data within the Cormant-CS DCIM solution is of most value when it can be exchanged with external systems. That’s why we offer the Cormant-EDIS (External Data Integration Service) platform. The Cormant-EDIS solution provides a plug-in framework for complex one or two-way interfaces. A key benefit of this framework is a lower cost of interface delivery, increasing the ROI of Cormant-CS DCIM

Integrate ITSM and Cormant-CS DCIM

  • DCIM data is the missing element within an ITSM framework.  ITSM usually relies on discovered or manually updated data, increasing th ebusiness risk of incorrect decision making.  Cormant-EDIS delivers a solution for low-cost, configurable integration.
  • Save time and money by capturing data once and synchronizing data between systems.
  • Cormant-EDIS supports ITIL initiatives and lowers the cost of delivering ITIL processes within an organization.

 

     CMDB

  • Tow-way integration supports Asset/CI elements that are created in a CMDB or Cormant-CS
  • Cormant-EDIS is configurable to synchronize standard or custom data elements in both directions
  • By Exchanging only necessary data, Cormant-CS supports a federated CMDB model rather than exchanging all data.
  • Exchanges can be time or business rule based.

                                                                                Change Management

  • Physical move, adds and changes of equipment, assets and connectivity are usually required as part of larger enterprise change initiatives managed in an enterprise service management system. Cormant-EDIS triggers Cormant-CS Workflow creation based on user defined rules.
  • Cormant-CS orders are broken into tasks and status updates are pushed back to the service management solution as the task progresses.
  • Upon Ticket completion the ITSM system can be updated with change details and CI records updated as required.

Integrations

The Cormant-EDIS (External Data Integration Services) is available as an extension to the Cormant-CS DCIM solution and provides a plug-in framework for complex one or two-way interfaces. A key benefit of this framework is a lower cost of interface delivery, increasing the ROI of Cormant-CS DCIM.

The benefits of a plug-in framework are faster deployment of new interfaces, a common management platform for monitoring and fewer systems to manage.
