The SummitAI Incident Management module is ITIL 2011 certified, and includes powerful SLA Management, Work Order Management, Auto Routing, and Auto Escalation workflows. These can be configured based on Priority, Impact, Urgency, Category, Classification, CI, Customer, User, or Location.

Incident Management is tightly integrated with Knowledge Management to help the end users resolve incidents themselves (self-service) and analysts to provide faster resolutions.
Problem Management is an IT Service Management sub-module that provides a wide variety of resources to boost the understanding of a problem, and consequently, prevent the occurrence and recurrence of incidents. The two processes of Problem and Incident Management are interrelated because incident records are essential for successful problem identification. However, while Problem Management aims at providing permanent solutions to root cause issues, Incident Management focuses more on quick solutions.
SummitAI Problem Management is an ITIL 2011 certified module that includes powerful options for Problem Review, Diagnostics, and Root Cause Analysis.

It is integrated with all the major modules, such as Incident Management, Change Management, Knowledge Management, CMDB and Project Management.
SummitAI Change Management is an ITIL 2011 certified module that addresses the controlled implementation of changes made to the IT infrastructure. With a majority of service interruptions being caused by change-related incidents and Service Requests, a process is required to address change implementation with minimum impact on IT services. The Change Management module does just this, by ensuring that changes are traced, with minimal risk and disruption.
SummitAI Change Management delivers comprehensive process management by assuring effective coordination with SummitAI Configuration Management Database (CMDB). It seamlessly moves a Change Request (CR) from planning, through implementation, CAB approval, and finally, verification. The process ensures that the changes made are in consultation with the status monitoring activities of Configuration Management and Problem Management among several other processes. A specific path is followed during change implementation.

This module stores a comprehensive list of the organization’s Configuration Items (CI). CMDB supports an automatic import of hardware and software assets and Service Catalog items. It can also track relationships between IT assets and service activities, apart from reporting and comparisons of SLAs and QoS delivered.

This speeds up the incident resolution considerably, leading to higher SLA achievements and lower escalations. Administrators can configure an external source of knowledge repository and integrate it with the SummitAI Knowledge Management module which can provide information while searching for Knowledge Records. This module is tightly integrated with the other SummitAI modules, such as Incident Management, Change Management, Problem Management, and CMDB.
