Importance of Incident Management In Building Reliability
Enterprises rely on solutions like ServiceNow and Microsoft Teams, to better communicate and manage ticketing, in service of creating compliant, secure, and reliable IT and business operations.

Chat-apps like Microsoft Teams are the perfect tool to start the incident response process. Utilizing Blameless bot commands within the chat-app streamlines the entire subsequent workflow. Blameless automatically creates a dedicated Teams channel that includes a live “incident summary” tab. Keeping all stakeholders informed and updated, while gathering every piece of relevant data for clean retrospective reports. For teams using ServiceNow, a record is simultaneously created, updating both ServiceNow and Blameless, in real-time.
