Problem Management service improvements

The Problem Management process can be improved by using information gathered within the platform.

Much of the data is already stored within the problem record. You can gather more information by enabling auditing, which provides an accurate review of the history of the problem. You can use Metrics, to define the key performance indicators to monitor within the system.

With these metrics and the information within the database, it is possible to generate reports. Reports can be added to homepages or scheduled for automatic generation and distribution. You can also use database views to join tables for reporting purposes.

Use this information to refine automatic rules, such as assignment rules, service level agreements, or inactivity monitors for the Problem Management environment.
