Runbooks Change Management

For our client’s IT operations, runbooks are complex and highly detailed how-to guides for completing commonly repeated tasks and procedures.

They might be used to patch a server, restart a system when an adaptor has stopped, renew a website or SSL certificate, deploy automation, and more. And, for more complex operations, we uncovered numerous opportunities for our client to develop and utilize runbooks for Disaster Recovery, Incident Resolution, Daily Operations, and Host Monitoring.

  • Procedures locked in hard-to-customize documents like Microsoft Word and Excel, PDFs, and Adobe Workfront
  • Lack of visibility into tasks hindered traceability and accountability
  • The non-interactive, hard-to-use system made for inaccurate, poorly undetailed documentation
