  • You’ll use management software and tools to collect agreed performance statistics.

  • You’ll contribute to the maintenance, installation, and problem resolution.

  • You’ll facilitate recovery, following resolution of incidents.     

  • You’ll document and close resolved incidents according to agreed standards and procedures.
