The Backbone is the Dutch leader in hybride monitoring solutions. For over 15 years, The Backbone is supporting organizations and companies to increase productivity en IT and End-User performances, for example with the End-User Performance solution and SCOM optimalization. On a daily base several products like System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) and Azure Monitor are used to fulfill information needs. Own products extend the offered solutions to increase the value for our customers.
The TOPdesk Connector is used by our world wide customers to integrate SCOM Alerts, Azure Alerts and PRTG sensor alarms with the incident management process of TOPdesk. Integrating both worlds has two advantages: the support engineer just has to focus on one list of issues and the organization gains insight into valuable information. The configuration of the TOPdesk Connector is flexible to give control about the degree of automated ticket generation.
The TOPdesk Connector will help to streamline the completion of the alerts and sensor alarms generated by the monitoring solution according to the incident management process used for all other reported issues. The TOPdesk Connector installation and guides can be downloaded on the website. A trial version is available to see the TOPdesk Connector working and to experience the added value.
