The Software UForge AppCenter with AIOps guarantees a fast, efficient and automatic service management at Formwize, by automatically shifting from one cloud provider to another and reducing the amount and costs of service desk calls
"The Fujitsu automated and intelligent management tools drive down costs while enhancing our service availability. And, they help us cope with new challenges as they surface."
When Formwize’s cloud provider experienced a catastrophic failure, FUJITSU’s Software UForge AppCenter with AIOps automatically and seamlessly shifted service to another platform.
Headquartered in Perthshire, Scotland, Formwize builds web-based form solutions, providing survey, poll, event, test and customised forms for a range of SME and blue-chip clients. The company is powered by world-class IT systems using a hybrid IT model, which allows it to ensure high levels of service and secure placement of data in geographies to suit customers’ needs.
Keeping Formwize’s cloud-based survey platform online is vital, so the company is always looking for ways in which it can improve availability. It wanted to apply an intelligent automation layer that could address any application uptime issues without human intervention.
Formwize turned to long-term partner Fujitsu and its new AIOps solution, using policy-based autonomics to detect service deterioration or outage and automatically shift from one cloud provider to another.
