“With macro-economic influences such as inflation and supply chain disruptions continuing to impact the market, leaders are adopting a digital-first approach,” said Mickey North Rizza, group vice president at IDC. “More than ever, it’s becoming more important for companies to provide employees and customers with reliable products that create seamless experiences that deliver value quickly.”
Coming on the heels of the recent release of the Tokyo Platform, ServiceNow helps customers unlock more value and cost savings with new innovations that drive greater efficiency.
“Our customers’ biggest challenge is our biggest inspiration. CIOs are looking for technology that addresses modern workplace issues to rapidly accelerate value to their organization. At ServiceNow, we’re working hard to roll out new features that address the growing needs of our customers,” said CJ Desai, chief operating officer at ServiceNow. “Only the ServiceNow platform has the flexibility and extensibility to work with any type of organization, anywhere, to remove complexity from day-to-day work.”
Automatic service suggestions
Stable service operation starts with a technical blueprint. Organizations need to quickly map IT business services and application usage to the technology components that make them up. however,IT operators and service mapping analysts often struggle to develop and maintain service maps due to overly manual processes, changing environments, and a lack of enterprise-wide visibility.
Automatic service suggestions – available through Service Mapping Plus – use machine learning to automatically analyze an organization’s network traffic and suggest entry points for business-critical services. IT departments can now create a high-fidelity service map of infrastructure and middleware with a few simple clicks, saving valuable time and money, while building a more accurate mapping across the business , arming organizations with the service-related insights they need to make decisions and respond quickly to emergent IT events. For example, if an organization’s email servers have an outage, service mapping will allow IT teams to quickly identify the other systems and applications that power those servers so that teams can minimize and solve the problem easily.
Service Request Playbook for the Public Sector
Governments are working to better respond to incoming service requests (like 311 in the US). Relying on outdated systems and processes creates costly gaps and hinders the developer experience.
Service Request Playbook – built on ServiceNow Public Sector Digital Services – is a prepackaged application purpose-built to digitize and automate the service request process, helping government workers improve efficiency and consistency, while empowering them to monitor the progress of back-office teams . In addition, the public can easily request services and track status anywhere, anytime, and on any device.
Workplace Scenario Planning
Hybrid work models mean that businesses must learn to reconfigure space and manage change for individual employees and entire departments while ensuring that resources – such as heat and electricity – are used responsibly. This is often a manual, complex, and paper-based process for workplace and facility teams.
Workplace Scenario Planning – part of Workplace Service Delivery – helps organizations work more strategically with workspace planning efforts to better manage spend and improve the office experience. Space planners can design, compare, and experiment with different space allocation scenarios using a visual drag and drop interface before deploying changes to an office, therefore o optimize space, save money, and provide a more collaborative and productive office experience.
