Introduction

Supervision reports are used in ServiceNav to visualize or present the status of an IT park at the level of a group of equipment and/or services and for one or several given companies. They will allow you to take the necessary measures to adjust or evolve your fleet.

This document explains how to set up supervision reports.

 

General principles

Reporting categories

There are 3 categories of reporting depending on the desired use:

  • Customer base for internal use Consolidated reporting of your entire customer base, transmitted internally according to the desired frequency and means of communication.
  • Customer base for external use Reporting : reporting transmitted externally to each of your customers, according to the desired frequency and means of communication.
  • Internal park Reporting on your internal fleet, transmitted internally according to the desired frequency and means of communication.

Content templates

Supervision reports can be defined from the following content templates:

  • Park Details Visualization of the equipment and associated services for the selected companies.
  • Current condition of the fleet View the current status of the services associated with the selected equipment.
  • Availability analysis Visualization of the availability of user services (service weather) and selected equipment over a given period, with calculation of the evolution of this over the last few months.
  • Performance analysis The availability of the selected equipment over a given period of time and the performance of the associated services.
  • Monitoring of peak hour service consumption Visualization of the selected equipment and the performance of the associated services during peak hours.

Supervision reports can be defined at a site or customer level. Depending on whether the user is a customer or a partner, the types of reports offered are different. A customer will only have access to the "internal fleet" reporting category.

Rights management

A supervisory report is defined by a creator at company code or site level. It is not inherited by accounts subordinate to the company code.

The visibility rules are as follows:

  • Configuration of a supervision report
    All ServiceNav profiles that can access the Configuration > Reporting can set up a supervision report.
    All users of a company have access to the definitions of that company's "public" visibility reports. Private" visibility reports are only accessible by the creator of the report.
  • Viewing supervision reports
    All ServiceNav profiles that can access the Supervision > Reports can view the list of supervision reports created.
    All users of a company have access to that company's "public" visibility reports. Private" visibility reports are only accessible by the creator of the report.

Viewing the created supervision reports

The supervision reports that have been configured at a client or company level are visible on the Supervision >Reports.

Each line has a report for which the following information is displayed:

  • The title of the report

  • The analysis period
  • The frequency of sending the report
  • The name of the person who created the report
