Session Type: Professional Development

Proactive device monitoring in classrooms and labs combined with automated incident creation in your service management system helps ensure equipment availability and provides an enterprise solution that includes problem reporting and cross-functional team interaction. We will explore how integrating device monitoring with our ITSM system has helped Tulane's academic technologies group keep classrooms running smoothly. Join us to explore planned implementations in nonacademic areas and to think about our environments and how we may benefit by embracing the physical world.
