As IT teams struggle to keep up with the business demands imposed by the large organizations that house them, they cannot turn to cloud migration alone to bridge the gap. There’s another level to reach. Leveraging IT Service Management (ITSM) as a service, at the service of your entire company will empower your non-IT employees without exhausting your IT resources and budget. In this “How To,” we’ll explore some of the benefits and practicalities of delivering ServiceNow as a Service via its broad range of ITSM modules.
As stated, the present reality is that at many large companies, IT teams are not properly equipped to keep up with the needs of an increasingly digital workforce. Even in cases where companies have the opportunity to leverage the cloud for IT service management infrastructure, several dilemmas still persist:
These issues would make the option of maintaining the status quo an expensive standstill at best. The ideal alternative is a platform that combines all of the key aspects of ITSM under the umbrella of one robust but user-friendly interface—precisely what ServiceNow offers.
Now that we’ve identified our go-to solution in this space, ServiceNow, let’s discuss how Trianz goes about integrating this complete solution package into your enterprise—with zero downtime or disruption. But first, you may be wondering: why do I need a managed service provider to integrate ServiceNow? Although ServiceNow may not be complex, it is vast. You could spend over a decade exploring all the nooks and crannies of it, as well as mastering its different use cases and implementations—exactly what we have done.
Clearly, not all of its features will make sense for your organization. Other features, however, if properly utilized, could revolutionize the way you do business. Once our consultants have taken the time to learn the ins and outs of your company, the market context, and the persistent internal hurdles that you face, we’ll know exactly which solutions to plug in first as priority.
In a sense, our model follows the ServiceNow model in that we adapt to our clients’ needs in a scalable, cost-effective, and business-forward manner. We don’t force technology where it doesn’t serve a tangible purpose. Not everything should be automated. Not everything is broken and therefore needs to be fixed. What we care about more than anything else is: does this make sense from a business-financial perspective? Is this something that will actually be used to optimize operations, create clear cost-savings from the get-go, and generate significant ROI over the long term? We collaborate with you to figure all of this out and create an ambitious yet executable action plan with predictable results.
By maximizing process management, expansion and delivery from experts, as well as via their self-service catalog of on-demand tools, ServiceNow enables you to integrate a scalable and cost-effective ITSM solution. This is the power of IT Service Management as a Service with ServiceNow as the driver.
Other positive impacts and outcomes you can expect include:
We hope you have gotten the gist by now as far as what we do. At Trianz, we believe in a modern approach to helping clients migrate to new platforms by focusing not only on technical capabilities, but also on the business outcomes of the migration. Both large and small companies are sensitive to the bottom line, and we recommend ServiceNow because of the impact we have seen it have on productivity and innovation in many different scenarios. The fact is that with adaptive integrations, cloud management and a wide range of ITSM modules, ServiceNow can respond to virtually any need you may have, including some you may not yet even have considered.

Adopting emerging cloud technologies, consolidating resources, and improving processes is the key. “IT no longer just supports corporate operations as it traditionally has but is fully participating in business value delivery.
