Symphony SummitAI announced today the general availability of SummitAI Sierra, the latest version of its service management solution. SummitAI Sierra includes enhanced AI capabilities for its automation and knowledge management features as part of a comprehensive, ITIL certified service management tool.
SummitAI is an advanced IT service management (ITSM) solution that unifies key applications across service, asset, availability and project management in a single, easy-to-use platform. Symphony Summit incorporates artificial intelligence and machine reasoning to help customers drive productivity, reduce costs and accelerate business outcomes.
SummitAI Sierra builds on Symphony SummitAI’s established track record with new features designed to help customers accomplish more and further improve their service management. Enhancements include:
AI-driven knowledge intelligence: The Sierra release introduces a revamped, AI-driven Knowledge Management module focused on self-service with enhanced user experience and user interface. It provides end users NLP-driven conversational search and attribute-based filtering.
Next-generation digital agent with live agent transfer: SummitAI’s digital agent CINDE now corrects spelling mistakes and enables natural language conversations. By delivering self service of knowledge articles, CINDE further offsets the load of operations staff. Other enhancements include seamless transfer of conversations and context to a live agent if needed.
Asset cost and capacity analytics: A new IT asset dashboard in the SummitAI Asset Management solution offers cost and capacity analytics in addition to complete hardware and software asset management capabilities.
IT operations analytics: SummitAI now offers a new IT operations analytics dashboard and an integration with Nagios, in addition to SolarWinds.
Faster deployment: With dynamic scripting, codeless configuration and a new comprehensive golden catalog, SummitAI Sierra makes deployment even faster, and out of the box.
Roy Atkinson, senior writer and analyst, HDI, said: “Today’s ‘always-on, always connected’ workforce needs rapid, accurate answers and guidance when they have an issue or a question. Having access to a system with Natural Language Processing (NLP) built in—along with the ability to drive automated processes—can reduce or eliminate time spent waiting for responses and answers. That in turn increases productivity for the end user while decreasing the burden of repetitive tasks on the service desk. It’s a win-win.”
Dr. Akhil Sahai, chief product officer, Symphony SummitAI, said: “Today’s IT organizations face increasing demands for high-quality IT services that are responsive and cost-effective. SummitAI Sierra release addresses changing ITSM demands, enables greater customer experiences, increases speed of execution, and boosts productivity of IT operations teams, by re-imaging IT management with AI, at up to 45% lower total cost of operations.”
