What makes Infosysta one of the leaders in the EMEA market is its active involvement in bridging the gap between various departments and stakeholders of an organization by introducing Agile project management solutions. Below is the conversation that CIO Applications had with Feras El Hajjar, the Founder & Chairman of Infosysta, about how his company helps clients increase operational effectiveness, improves performance, and reduces cost through a transformation process, and delivers the fastest migration, upgrading, and implementation process that even includes solution design, architecture, installation, configuration, customization, plugin development, and data migration.
Classic ITSM solutions and providers are disappearing. Solutions implementing DevOps workflows are the new trend in any scalable environment to bridge the gap between Operations and Development teams. DevOps is becoming the driver of all processes implementing a successful ITSM & SDLC in the same technology, connected out-of-the-box, and this where Infosysta adds value.
Please elaborate on how Infosysta’s expertise, combined with a suite of Atlassian products, can enable clients’ IT teams to quickly implement a modern and flexible approach to ITSM with an ITIL-certified service desk that is easy to use.
Jira and related Atlassian Products are the best tools to implement an end-to-end solution for Operations, Development, and other departments in any sector. No more silos in isolated departments like those seen in classic operations. Infosysta has the expertise to break silos between different departments to do more with less effort and to increase the quality of service of agents working in the operations.
What are the various strengths and key aspects that distinguish Infosysta among its competitors in the industry?
