Fortune 1000 Multinational selects ITSM Bridge

A Fortune 1000 multinational technology company based in California recently selected ITSM Bridge to address their data migration requirements as they transition their managed service operations to the Service Now platform.   With over 300 customers to migrate, using a purely manual approach was simply not an option as the exercise would take far too long. 

ITSM Bridge significantly reduces the effort required to migrate data between Service Management platforms by providing a direct connection between source and target environments supported by a set of pre-built migration templates to accelerate delivery whilst maintain data integrity.

With enhanced support for multi-tenant systems, ITSM Bridge ensures that data privacy is observed by migrating customer-specific data into segregated domains in Service Now, a critical requirement for managed service providers like this.

Mark Herring, co-founder of ITSM Bridge commented: "I am delighted that this leading multi-national have selected ITSM Bridge for this important project.  We look forward to helping address their data migration requirements over the coming weeks and are fully committed to making this project a complete success"

ITSM Bridge 3.3 Released

We are pleased to announce the 3.3 release of ITSM Bridge incorporating advanced support for migrating attachments and images between Service Management applications.  Now you can choose which attachments you want to migrate with each record (either all, selected or none) and/or migrate selected images such as those used extensively within Knowledge Management articles and Service Request Management applications.

ITSM Bridge 3.2 Released

We are pleased to announce that the 3.2 release of ITSM Bridge is now available.  This release introduces the concept of temporary variables - a step change in the flexibility of data conversion. Temporary variables allow the user to define rules for the temporary storage and conversion of data between source and target environments.  This temporary storage means that multiple conversion steps can be applied to a source field, (or combination of source fields), when generating a value for a target field.

For example you could setup the following variables:

var1 = site name (lookup from site table using Site ID)

var2 = company (lookup from Company table using Company ID)

target field = 'Site: ' + var1 + ' Company: ' + var2

which would generate a string containing both the site and company name.  Note that any combination of the 5 mapping types (simple, assignment, lookup, reference or value match) can be used with temporary variables making this enhancement extremely powerful and addressing the vast majority of data conversion/cleansing requirements.

Also included in this release is:

Specific enhancements and new migration template for those Service Now customers moving from the standard Service Now HR Service Management application to the new HRSM Scoped application, specifically around HR Templates and HR Services;

new migration option to specify the application scope for the target data;

ITSM Bridge 3.0 Release

We are pleased to announce that the 3.0 release of ITSM Bridge is now available.  This release includes Advanced Migration Management (AMM), resulting from an overhaul of the migration architecture to accommodate large-scale migration projects.   In situations where customers need to migrate more that 1 million transaction records, AMM provides a reliable and robust solution by breaking the migration down into configurable chunks.  Improvements have also been made to the performance, particularly at the start of the migration process.

Also included in this release is:

standard support for the migration of attachments between Service Now instances;

improvements to the lookup mapping feature to provide more flexibility;

changes to most migration options which can now be defined at form mapping level (previously could only be set for the entire project);

These enhancements apply to both Service Now and BMC Remedy migration projects.

Change Management Migration

We are pleased to announce the release of a new Change Management Template for ITSM Bridge users running BMC Remedy applications.  This template can be used for selectively migrating Change Management data from ITSM 8.1 (or older) to the ITSM 9.1 Change Management application whilst maintaining data integrity and without the need for time-consuming export/import operations or load forms.

The template can also be used to migrate ITSM 8.1 Change Management data between servers on the same application platform such as between production and test instances running ITSM 8.1.

All associated data such as Work Info, Tasks, Task Groups, Relationships, Approvals, Work Effort Logs, Notification Logs etc are included in the template so that the migrated CRs can be viewed in their entirety.

Upgrading to the new HR SM Scoped Application

With the recent Istanbul release of Service Now, there is new HR SM Scoped Application.  In order to help customers migrate to this application from legacy HR Case apps, we are now offering a pre-configured template that can be used with the 2.6 release of ITSM Bridge.

This template can be used with the standard HR Case application that was available with Fuji, Geneva and Helsinki to migrate data to the HR Case Scoped application on Istanbul.  Includes associated data records such as business rules, script includes, scheduled jobs, categories, record producers, HR catalog items, variables, In-bound email actions, skills, knowledge categories and articles, UI actions, UI Policies, Data Policies and HR Templates.

ITSM Bridge 2.6 Release

We are pleased to announce that the 2.6 release of ITSM Bridge is now available.  This release includes an important enhancement which allows users to define parent-child relationships between data mappings.  For example, migrate all tasks that belong to a parent change request where the change request itself is defined using a separate data mapping.  The parent and child are linked using a configurable field selection on each.

If no suitable parent data mapping exists, the user can define a query instead based on any form/table on the source server to identify the parent record.

This enhancement applies to both Service Now and BMC Remedy migration projects.

We believe that this enhancement provides greater flexibility for our customers as they can now define more precisely exactly which records they want to migrate without being limited to a simple query.
