Multinational Healthcare Company - Case study
Different teams of our client use Jira and ServiceNow in their day-to-day work. With the ZigiOps platform, they were able to synchronize the work of their DevOps and Service Desk departments and automate a lot of the mundane daily tasks.
After working with the ZigiWave team, this global health enterprise implemented two types of Jira ServiceNow integrations. The first integration is collecting data from ServiceNow and automatically creating Epic-type issues in Jira, with all the necessary information transferred in real-time. The second integration is bi-directional and collects data from Jira to create Enhancement Processing events in ServiceNow. If there are any updates in the Jira issue or in the ServiceNow event, ZigiOps updates the information in the other tool accordingly. Everything happens automatically, without the need for manual opening and closing of tickets.
With the ZigiOps no-code integration, the company’s teams can collaborate more efficiently and resolve issues much faster.
Our client brings scaled solutions to hospitals and health centers and is among the highest revenue-generating companies in the United States. The organization has more than 50 years of experience in addressing healthcare’s most complicated challenges.
Now it is a multinational health care services company, providing medical products to a huge share of the hospitals in the United States. The company also manufactures medical and surgical products and provides performance and data solutions for healthcare facilities.
The company aims to deliver end-to-end solutions and data-driven insights that advance healthcare and improve lives every day.
Our client is serving the majority of American hospitals, more than 60,000 pharmacies, and 10,000 specialty physician offices and clinics. Managing such a huge number of orders and service requests requires perfect synchronization and reliable systems to automate repetitive processes.
The company has more than 40,000 employees and different departments are using different software tools to organize and automate a huge number of tasks. The company’s customer service team is using ServiceNow to manage service requests, while their DevOps team is using Jira to track projects and development tasks.
Transferring data manually from Jira to ServiceNow and vice versa creates risks for omitting important information, delays, duplicate records, silos, and misunderstandings. The organization works with health products and services, so preciseness and accuracy are a must for them.
Therefore the company wanted a reliable system to help them integrate Jira and ServiceNow and avoid any errors due to the manual transfer of data.
After carefully weighing all the options, they decided to utilize the ZigiOps no-code integration platform, as it is powerful and flexible and could serve their specific requirements within a short time frame.
Integrations with ZigiOps are quite easy to set up and do not require much time for preparation. The company implemented two integrations between Jira and ServiceNow.
The first integration collects specific events from ServiceNow and automatically creates a Jira epic type issue:
ServiceNow (entity “rm_enhancement”) -> Jira (issue type – Epic)
- Collect data from ServiceNow
- Create a new (epic) in Jira
This way all the events created in ServiceNow that correspond to some pre-defined criteria are transferred to Jira in real-time. Specific issue type is created in Jira, and only the necessary information is transferred so that the company’s DevOps team can respond immediately and react accordingly to these requests.
The second integration is bi-directional and extracts Jira issues to take them automatically to ServiceNow:
Jira (issue) -> ServiceNow (rm_enhancement – Enhancement Processing) (bi-directional)
- Collect data from Jira (issues)
- Create New Enhancement Processing in ServiceNow
- Update from Jira to ServiceNow
- Update from ServiceNow to Jira
This Jira ServiceNow integration not only filters and transfers the necessary Jira issues to ServiceNow but also transfers any update to both applications as soon as it happens. When a Jira issue corresponds to the specific pre-set filters, ZigiOps gets the info and loads it into a new Enhancement Processing in ServiceNow in real-time.
If there are any updates in the Jira issue, or in case it is closed, ZigiOps automatically updates the ServiceNow Enhancement Processing, too.
If the ServiceNow event is updated, the integration platform transfers the updates to the corresponding Jira issue immediately.
Integrated Data Types
ServiceNow Event -> Jira Epic
Jira Issue -> ServiceNow Enhancement Processing
ServiceNow Enhancement Processing -> Jira Issue
