At many companies, IT teams are not growing quickly enough to keep pace with the extreme service demands of an increasingly digital workforce. Even in cases where companies could transition their existing IT service management infrastructure to the cloud, inefficiencies of dated workflows and temperamental connectors between third-party solutions would still exist. This would make the option of maintaining the status quo an expensive standstill at best. The ideal alternative is a platform that combines all the key aspects of ITSM under the umbrella of one robust but user-friendly interface—precisely what ServiceNow offers.
When it comes to IT service delivery, “SaaS” is more than just a buzzword: it is the key to gaining and retaining satisfied customers. Outmoded ticketing systems that impede productive expert action by preventing visualization of real-time system concerns can frustrate users inside and outside of IT departments. Fortunately, ServiceNow Service Desk solves this problem across the board.
One main benefit of migrating to ServiceNow is the ability it grants an entire business to rely upon a single system for the entire spectrum of IT service needs. This simplifies service requests and responses by creating one highly automated point of contact for anyone in need of assistance. Common requests can be identified and managed with stock replies or redirects to knowledgebase articles. More complex situations can be easily assigned to specialists by IT managers via pristine dashboards. Total ticket volume, time to resolution, and individual performance can be tracked with a high level of detail through in-app analytics. Perhaps most importantly, new knowledge produced through these interactions can be immediately integrated into service processes and made available to your entire network via the ServiceNow platform.
The financial impact of trading multiple discreet platforms for a single, powerful infrastructure cannot be ignored. Not only will ServiceNow’s comprehensive capabilities reduce your total cost of ownership for IT Service Management, but it will also simplify your expansion into IT Operations Management and IT Asset Management when your company is ready to extend its IT service foundation. This will all contribute to your bottom line by helping you avoid interruptions in production processes and enhancing collaboration between stakeholders.

Any paid software product successfully adopted by your teams to improve efficiency and generate positive business outcomes essentially pays for itself. In the IT industry, we refer to this kind of successful software integration as “the gift that keeps on giving.” There is no major downside to cost as long as ROI prevails in the long term. But how do you determine which software tools or features are value fountains for your organization, and which are budgetary burdens?Explore

That’s why Trianz believes that ITSM is ultimately a customer service, and should be treated as such.Explore
Information security continues to be a relentless foot race against cyber criminals. However, the busy CISO has daily worries too – approving and delivering security solutions but, also responding to a myriad of compliance requirements. Most audit reports in modern enterprises run along similar line items which are must-do’s and items that are nice to-do’s. What the audit reports always seem to not understand is the level of effort and time required from the security team to perform the must-do’s. The nice to-do’s almost never get done.Explore
In August 2016 Navin Shenoy, corporate VP and general manager for the client computing group (CCG) at Intel said “the average household has ten connected devices. This will explode to 50 by 2020.” This situation will evolve the household network into the equivalent of a Small & Medium size business network – with all the vulnerabilities of an unmanaged IT environment.Explore
