Runbook Ownership + Service Dependancies

When an incident happens, most organizations have a way of identifying all affected services. The trouble is, it’s often a human-centered process that depends on the knowledge of key individuals or manually updated documentation. There might be a version in your alerting tool, a version in your corporate Wiki, and a different version still in your team’s head. This means that during incidents, responders spend valuable time determining the full impact that could be spent remediating core issues. With the addition of service dependencies to FireHydrant Service Catalog, responders can immediately identify the full scope of service and customer impact across an incident with a comprehensive view of downstream and upstream dependencies. And since Service Catalog documents service ownership, they can quickly pull in the needed responding teams.
