As we all know, a strategic Service Management and Operations Management approach can transform your business and eliminate IT service outages. Looking to unify these processes across all areas of the business will help modernize your organization and take your growth to the next level. Dynatrace, with its digital performance management solution, is built with out-of-the-box integration into your ServiceNow environment with zero configuration for real-time detection and reaction to IT-service related problems within your infrastructure and application environments.
We’ve simplified the direct integration of your monitored environment with your ServiceNow configuration management database (CMDB) by providing a free app.
Install the Dynatrace ServiceNow app within your own ServiceNow environment to directly synchronize the list of automatically discovered hosts, applications, and services with your ServiceNow instance.
Once Dynatrace detects an anomaly within your environment, it automatically pushes the problem and its impact to the ServiceNow Problems list. Now, each problem detected by Dynatrace is automatically transformed into a ServiceNow incident.
With Dynatrace & ServiceNow’s ITSM, you get the full context of the problem to pinpoint operational incidents and their impact on service delivery, eliminating the need for other monitoring vendors.
Dynatrace provides the ability to eliminate service outages faster in ServiceNow by removing the guesswork and getting to the root cause of the problem. Improve the average time needed to react to on incidents with the following:
“The real key thing is the integration point with ServiceNow. It gives us the ability to automate and distribute problem notifications to the right team. That means instead of chasing down people and looking manually on dashboards, there is a notification pushed directly to the development team if its an application problem or the infrastructure team if its an infrastructure problem. “
- Jeppe Lindberg, Application Performance Manager
With today’s highly dynamic service and application infrastructures, managing a CMDB database can be cumbersome and error prone with thousands of individual business-critical services and related dependencies. By installing Dynatrace OneAgent into your IT environment, you’ll successfully manage your software systems to efficiently route incidents to responsible teams.

CMDBs are a core element to ITSM. Dynatrace & ServiceNow speak the same language, using the same CMDB taxonomies. This demo showcases how Dynatrace contributes to ITSM to be a part of your ITIL processes. See how Dynatrace auto-discovery and monitoring addresses the challenges around CMDBs and how Dynatrace AI creates incidents with root cause analysis into your ITSM solution.
The Dynatrace-to-ServiceNow integration seamlessly integrates Dynatrace alerts and its real-time dependency model with ServiceNow, allowing companies to remediate problems faster and update their Configuration Management Databases (CMDB) in ServiceNow in real-time. The app also integrates with ITOM products, thus making it easier to drill deeper into the Event Management dashboard. With this integration benefit you can expect the following:
“Dynatrace is painless to setup; within hours Dynatrace already discovered potential problems that could impact our customers. More importantly, Dynatrace shows us the exact source of our issues, saving us countless hours of devops time.”
ServiceNow is one of the most extensive enterprise service management platforms available at the moment, providing software for efficiently managing the full spectrum of enterprise-related affairs, including legal, HR, finance, facilities management, marketing, and field operations.
