REDWOOD CITY, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/29/14 -- Sumo Logic, the next generation machine data analytics company, today announced the certified integration of its cloud-based analytics services with ServiceNow®. The integration benefits enterprises looking to streamline end-to-end visibility to detect and remedy known and anomalous events in real time.

The exponential increase in security threats, coupled with ongoing responsibility for IT to keep internal and customer-facing systems running, makes rapid incident resolution of paramount importance. Supporting critical business services, managing unexpected events, and meeting Service Level Agreements (SLAs) to improve business efficiency and productivity further adds to this complexity.

"The certified integration between Sumo Logic and ServiceNow gives organizations the power to strengthen and simplify end-to-end IT operations management," said Vance Loiselle, CEO of Sumo Logic. "The ability to improve security posture, streamline change management and keep vital infrastructures operational delivers unmistakable value and return on investment."

The integration between Sumo Logic and ServiceNow helps IT and security teams overcome these challenges by delivering a real-time, closed loop solution. The technical integration provides:

  • Optimized productivity: Replace ad hoc approaches with a streamlined cloud-to-cloud integration to reduce complexity so companies can quickly remediate issues, support critical business services, and modernize change management that boost IT and end-user productivity. The ability to capture knowledge accelerates future event resolution.
  • Reduced business costs: The cloud advantage and efficient resolution process helps businesses reduce system downtime costs, meet SLAs, accelerate mission critical launches, and keep revenue-generating sources running.
  • Deep business insights: Anomaly Detection, based on machine-learning algorithms, automatically uncovers events in real-time, helping enterprises deepen their understanding of their security, application, and operational infrastructure to ward off known and unknown threats before they fully impact the organization.
  • Built-in, bi-directional communication: Events detected in Sumo Logic generate incidents in ServiceNow for efficient, consistent closed-loop resolution. Users can also launch Sumo Logic from within ServiceNow to view the events that generate incidents.
