I'd be intersted in looking at integrating with WhatsUpGold monitoring. Would this be possible? Not seen any articles relating to WUG here yet..


Trusted Contributor.

Hi cjb_1,

Of course you can develop an integration for WhatsUpGold during the workshop.

The list of applications in the blog article are our suggestions only. Develop and submit an integration with any of these and you will be eligible for 600 points on the ITOM Insiders platform (plus more points for attending the webinars etc). If participants choose to develop an integration for some other application, we will need to make this decision case-by-case.

Of course you would get access to the same useful resources and to R&D experts as everybody else, no matter what application you choose. Also the points for registering and attending the webinars won't depend on the chosen application.

I hope to welcome you to the workshop beginning on May 23rd.

Best regards
