Get a prioritized shortlist of root-causes.

 

Changes are responsible for most performance and availability incidents. Evolven accelerates troubleshooting, automatically pointing to actual changes that can lead to an investigated incident:

 

  • Review detected changes using automatically generated insights
  • Detect differences between working and non-working environments, using environment comparison
  • When available, correlate changes and differences with data from existing ITSM and monitoring tools
  • Identify most probable root cause based on automatically calculated change risk

Get notified on high risk changes before issues start

 

High risk changes are responsible for most performance and availability incidents.

 

Evolven allows you to:

 

  • Detect all actual changes from infra to application, from configuration to workload
  • Assess risk of changes based on a number of automatic risk algorithms
  • Correlate and analyze changes with data from existing ITSM and monitoring tools
  • Alert/report on identified high risk changes

Detect actual changes that were not approved.

 

Unauthorized changes represent serious threats to environment stability and security.

 

  • Evolven correlates actual changes it detects with the data from service desk and deployment automation tools (ServiceNow, CA Service Desk, HP Service Manager, BMC Remedy etc.)
  • Evolven automatically detects unauthorized changes that were executed outside of the planned change implementation timeframe or change deployment scope
  • Evolven allows to define authorization rules to automatically qualify regular legitimate change activities or, on contrary, to monitor and ensure change freeze

How to identify, manage and address.

Unauthorized changes represent serious threats to environment stability, compliance and security. Detecting unauthorized changes early on is critical for preventing incidents and managing risk.

Accurate answers to the most challenging questions, instantly.

 

Evolven instantly provides you with accurate answers to the most challenging questions asked by auditors:

 

  • What was actually changed in your environment?
  • What is the actual state of your environment right now?
  • Are all environments consistent?
  • Were all approved changes actually implemented?
  • Are there any unauthorized changes that do not correlate to any approved change request?

Validate that all approved changes were accurately implemented.

 

IT is measured by its ability to successfully and rapidly drive changes that support the business. To do this IT focuses on planning and executing changes, then later, monitoring the health of the environment. Yet, IT still struggles to answer a basic question “what actually changed”.

 

Evolven allows you to:

 

  • Know all actual changes from infra to application, from configuration to workload at the most detailed level
  • Correlate the actual changes with approved changes requests and deployments to maintain complete change audit trail detecting unauthorized changes
  • Validate that all changes were deployed consistently, as planned and tested

Detect differences between and within environments

 

Incomplete, faulty and one-off changes make environments inconsistent and increase risk of failure.

 

Evolven allows you to:

 

  • Compare content and configuration of software and infra components
  • Compare components within the same environment (e.g. clustered servers) and across environment (e.g. non-prod and production environments)
  • Automatically match, align and compare environments with different physical but similar logical architecture
  • Automatically identify and report significant inconsistencies based on automatic risk analysis

Detect deviations from a “golden baseline” or a reference environment

 

Standardization of an IT environment drives efficient and reliable operations. Knowing your environment you can effectively control it.

 

Evolven allows you to:

 

  • Capture a snapshot of an approved working environment as the baseline
  • Periodically compare managed environments with the historical baseline
  • Compare managed environments with a live reference environment
  • Detected deviations are automatically analyzed to identify the risky ones that can cause an issue

Ensure that infrastructure is ready for deployment.

 

Infrastructure and application deployments frequently are executed by separate teams. This can result in unexpected infrastructure changes executed prior to application deployment, deviation from deployment pre-requisites, misaligned testing and production environments etc.

 

Evolven allows you to:

 

  • Compare infrastructure in the target environment with a “golden baseline”
  • Define policies to be verified prior to deployment to ensure that infrastructure is in the desired state prior to deployment
  • Compare infrastructure in the target environment with the environment where a deployed update was tested
  • Verify consistency of the target infrastructure
