I think it's great for giving any/all users the ability to deploy servers for whatever they want. It's also great for scaling up/down large quantities of servers. It also has some pretty good plugins and "orchestration actions" that you can write for yourself. I don't think it would be best suited if you want to set and forget it. It needs some TLC, and the interface and initial setup [are] not the most user-friendly. So if you're planning on using it for some complex tasks, make sure you have someone dedicated to it, at least for the initial setup. And make sure you have monitoring on it.

We have taken advantage of the single platform for different IT disciplines over the past few years and now we are doing more and more with the integrations. Our teams are looking at the same information which stops the blame game a lot. Their newest AIOps has been a very nice surprise as we've tried another tool for about 2 years and it required us to hire outside consultants to try and build what we needed. So far, ServiceNow found a lot of things we didn't know to look for. It's not perfect in fixing everything, but really has provided a lot of visibility and troubleshooting.

BMC was our legacy system before deploying ServiceNow. It's time had passed for us as it couldn't really keep up with our move to cloud and the number of services we were using. The cost kept getting higher, especially with all of the customization we had to do. Over the years, just got unwieldy. We still use
for raw data and log analysis, but we upgraded to ServiceNow event management and the Loom system log analytics. We had Loom before ServiceNow bought them, but it's nice it's all on one platform for us.
at times had so much info, we didn't know where to start, but ServiceNow gives us a great starting point.
