SDLC, or software development lifecycle, is a software development process used to develop software products or plan changes to existing software. Thanks to this life cycle, the development of software becomes more planned because the planning of the product to be written, its detailed analysis, the designs on the background or the front side, the development of the product, the acceptance tests, the go-live processes are done in a plan, respectively, and together with the feedbacks. After the go-live, the support given to the product does not end and the product is constantly monitored with the maintenance step and the feedback of the end users is processed. Institutions follow the Jira application’s SDLC process while developing software products.

During the daily workload, the end user’s request opened in the ITSM software is not directed to Jira, causing problems such as not informing the end user about the actions taken by Jira, or delayed response to the end user. As a solution, transferring the requests opened to the ITSM software to Jira manually, transferring the actions taken by the software developers manually to the ITSM software and informing the user causes a serious workload and waste of time on the IT employees. It creates an inefficient work environment.

Thanks to the ServiceDesk Plus & Jira integration bot developed on the AutomMate platform, the error records (incident) opened to the ServiceDesk Plus application open a bug-type issue report under the relevant project on Jira.

ServiceDesk Plus & Active Directory Integration (User Onboarding / OffBoarding)

In corporate companies, dozens of demands occur during the day regarding new job start-ups or dismissals. During the recruitment process of personnel initiated from human resources, information technologies are requested to perform operations such as opening the user, entering information, defining rights and authorizations, and defining e-mail boxes and groups. In cases where these works are done manually, the IT specialist creates a user for each user, enters their information, defines their rights and authorizations, and creates an e-mail.

Performing the transactions manually causes definition errors to occur, and extra effort and time are required in cases where the number of requests is high. When the workload on the IT side is high, it can cause the demand to be met late or overlooked. On the other hand, failure to terminate the rights and authorities on time, especially during the dismissal processes, may cause security risks. Error-prone manual process processes and time and effort costs caused by repetition of the same work reduce efficiency and cause time and money losses. In addition, internal dissatisfaction may occur due to not fulfilling user recruitment or change requests in a timely manner.

AutomMate Employee Onboarding service ensures that new user creation, update or closing requests coming from ITSM application are met by the software in a timely and error-free manner.

  • For newly recruited personnel, account definitions and authorizations can be made automatically by filling in the information in the defined form in the ServiceDesk Plus application.
  • Initiate, update and disconnect as many users as you want from IT systems within seconds in your user operations processes. Error-free, secure, and fast
  • Authorization of existing users can be automated when changing their title, surname, and location.
  • The Human Resources department can manage the recruitment processes without the need for the IT department.
 
Additionally, Integrating ServiceDesk Plus with an HR system will also prove helpful for your IT team to stay informed about new hires, promotions, terminations etc.
