Rob Badenoch


Head of Systems Practice

Catering to Facilities, Operations, and Real Estate departments, TAD Associates is an architectural AV design firm focused on marrying technology with human experience. The hybrid workforce has propelled the greatest change management challenges of a generation in the workplace. Limited visibility across systems, poor user experiences, and rapidly changing technology drove TAD Associates to develop a unique methodology. Tad.monitor leverages SL1 to build dynamic applications, monitor a myriad of AV devices and end points, and deliver a more modern approach to data and space utilization visibility for both enterprises at scale and individual users. 

For one example use case,  

  • TAD increased video conference availability from 85% to 98%  

  • Reduced network traffic by 20% 

  • Optimized infrastructure utilization to deliver better customer experiences 

Monika Gupta

Senior Engineer

Serving a very large national railway client, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) identified an opportunity to improve availability SLA reporting. Existing availability reporting required a highly manual and error-prone process involving review of data across 3000 servers and 300+ applications. With potential to impact availability SLAs and negatively impact the teams' productivity due to hours of manual verification of the data, TCS developed a complex PHP script, leveraging SL1 data, to provide more efficient and accurate SLA reporting. 

TCS is now connected to every monitoring tool in their environment through SL1  

  • Providing 100% accuracy in its availability reporting data 

  • Saving 22-man hours per month ($6k) 

  • Increasing adoption across of the report among numerous TCS teams 

Robert Gruener

Senior Domain Architect

Telstra wanted to meet customer expectations for a quicker, simpler, and more accurate onboarding process. Their goal is to ultimately achieve zero-touch onboarding for SD-WAN technologies and remove all manual on-boarding SL1 interactions regardless of the technology. They invested in automation with SL1. To simplify complexities across various platforms, Telstra created a cross-platform automation solution with a common codebase and shared libraries that allows automations to be freely developed and deployed across: SL1 PowerFlow workflows and RunBook automations, Ansible playbooks, and Telstra’s Python platform and command-line scripts. 

As a result of their work  

  • Tripled the number of engineers involved in writing automation 

  • Cut Python development time and writing supporting documentation by 75% 

  • Reduced functional testing time by 60% 

  • Reduced onboarding time and costs for their customers 

ScienceLogic believes in highlighting those customers at the forefront of innovation. With accelerated digital transformation in complex environments, we recognize our customers and partners who have demonstrated unique ways to modernize, automate, and improve customer and employee experiences. The accomplishments of our Pathfinders Innovators Award winners are a testament to their achieving organizational success through the innovative use of the SL1 platform.
