ServiceNow ITOM Features

The features of ServiceNow IT Operations Management are mostly aimed at automating time-consuming and monotonous tasks of your IT team, reducing IT costs and improving IT and business service availability.

Discovery

Discovery

To spare your IT service agents from manual data entry while populating the CMDB (Configuration Management Database), ServiceNow Discovery automatically scans your entire IT infrastructure, finds all devices and applications in it, records basic relationships among them and updates the CMDB with the discovered info. This gives IT service agents more time to maintain IT service provision and eliminates human error in CMDB data.

Event Management

Event Management

ServiceNow Event Management continuously monitors all activities within your IT infrastructure and warns the IT team of any identified failure so that they remove it before it seriously harms IT and business service delivery. Event Management also allows manually building configuration item (CI) dependency maps featuring the business services that CIs support to enable failure impact analysis and improve IT and business service availability.

Operational Intelligence

Operational Intelligence

Using machine learning capabilities, ServiceNow Operational Intelligence upgrades failure prevention. Analyzing service health data, Operational Intelligence recognizes anomalies in your IT infrastructure, prioritizes them and notifies the IT team if an anomaly needs to be promptly handled to prevent a failure. It boosts the IT team’s performance and makes interruptions to your IT and business services scarce.

Orchestration

Orchestration

To boost the productivity of your IT team, ServiceNow Orchestration allows building workflows to automate manual tasks across your IT infrastructure and beyond, including servers, printers, applications and even remote services. Your IT agents won’t have to spend any more time manually resetting passwords or distributing software usage rights – Orchestration will do all that. And to see how well it pays off, you can track the ROI of every workflow.

Service Mapping

Service Mapping

ServiceNow Service Mapping is an advanced form of Discovery that automatically builds complex maps of interdependent configuration items based on what business services they deliver. This eliminates the need for IT service agents to manually build such maps in ServiceNow, thus removing data errors and making failure impact analysis more accurate.

Cloud Management

Cloud Management

If your in-house developers or outsourced partners consume cloud resources in their daily activities, you can implement ServiceNow Cloud Management to provision and manage these resources optimally. It will not only let your IT team conveniently fulfill cloud resource requests but also monitor resource consumption, optimize it and cut related costs.

Key Points of ServiceNow ITOM Implementation

Stages:

1

Needs analysis and requirement elicitation

2

Configuration and customization

3

Rollout activities

Optional: pilot project (exploratory implementation of a small feature set prior to the full-scale project).

Risks:

Low user adoption of ITOM applications, including machine learning-based ones

Solution: holding dedicated user training with a focus on app functions and value as well as tuning machine-learning algorithms for better performance

Fading relevance of ITOM automation rules

Solution: planning for post-implementation ITOM support to make sure your solution always stays relevant to your needs

Project duration:

ITOM implementation time frames depend heavily on such factors as:

  • Out-of-the-box vs. customization choice
  • Level of ITSM maturity
  • Implementation scope.

For instance, a project can take up to 2-3 months if it:

  • Mostly sticks to OOTB.
  • Runs in a company with a high level of ITSM maturity.
  • Involves only Discovery and Event Management.
