ServiceNow IT Service Management

ServiceNow [IT Service Management] is well suited for situations where you want a quick, responsive, and one-stop platform that can be accessed by support engineers and they can work on the fixes with specified SLAs. Also, they can interact with the dashboard and update the info so that easy management of incidents and requests can be done.

Tivoli Asset Management for IT (Discontinued)

Tivoli Asset Management for IT can be used very well in a big datacenter to easily manage assets. For linear assets there are other Tivoli Asset Manager products available such as for transportation domain, oil and gas.For a small scale industry, Tivoli Asset management solution is not a big help.

Pros

ServiceNow IT Service Management

  • When I have a number of requests to make, for example a request to add a dozen or so user accounts to more than one group account in Active Directory , I can put all the needed information into the initial form, add it to my "shopping cart" and all of that information remains on the screen for the next item for which I only need to edit a few items (like the AD group name in this example), and keep adding them to the shopping cart until I have them all. When I "Check Out" each of those items is generated as a separate task under the one request. It simplifies and expedites the creation and tracking of these kinds of requests.
  • I can easily and quickly see what tickets are currently assigned to me in order to prioritize them and remain aware of my workload.
  • Numerous fields for CIs can be used when trying to find the entry for a particular item. For example, IP Address, server name, raw text, classification, and so on.
  • To help with making sense out of related tasks, when a task is assigned to me and I need to open another task for a different team to work in order to complete my task, I can open a sub-task from my ticket so that the relationship between the two can be pulled up later into reports. For example, I may have a task to build a new vm, and need to open tasks for networking, security accounts, software installation and so on. By opening sub-tasks from my assignment, the time spent by all parties concerned is tied together for more meaningful cost accounting.

Cons

ServiceNow IT Service Management

  • It is hard to find areas for improvement, the tool is very powerful. That said, building the CMDB still involves some manual interaction which was not how it was presented in demos.
  • The CMDB data is almost too deep and detailed. When you build the relationship map it can be so large that it is overwhelming. You can limit this, but the default maps are massive if you are discovering lots of device classes.
  • The product is expensive. Since they are the leader in the industry and the product has tons of features, they definitely charge for it!

  • Software bundling can be handled in a better way
  • Should eliminate rotating/non-rotating items concepts or should have an easy way to receive assets
  • Asset Topology can be introduced to see the dependencies between related assets

To be completely honest setting up a new ticketing system can be a pain in the ass. Once you have it setup and customized the way you want it, you don't want to switch unless you're unhappy with the product. Unless future releases and updates really muck the system up, I wouldn't change.

Usability

ServiceNow IT Service Management 6.5
Based on 11 answers
The dashboard is so confusing, [there are] many clicks to open a task and search by a ticket. The Enterprise customisation [we did] has finished to kill the software and creates a really bad experience on a daily basis. [It is] So slow, and so many clicks to process a ticket. Works only on IE so, that [should] make you realize that [it] is a bad idea.

I would give it this rating because we have had no major issues with the support for ServiceNow after we implemented it at our organization. They seem to respond promptly and efficiently if we ever do need to open a support case with them about an issue we are having.

To type in what should be a text box, you have to click an empty cell, a tiny text box pop up opens with a check box and an X. You the. Type in the text box and have to click the check mark. If you have a bunch of fields to fill out, doing this is very annoying. Absolutely know thought went in to this. I'm sure somebody in marketing thought it was a good idea. It wasn't.

Without exception, every client I have worked with has been very happy with their resulting product. While this is partly due to my work, I must point out that the platform is the winning decision, not the implementer.

Alternatives Considered

ServiceNow IT Service Management

ServiceNow is not just a standalone tool, its a complete suite of powerful tools which provide you a framework to develop your ticketing system and the data stored within the ticketing process can be used to analyze and optimize your production environment. Also visual dashboards can be created on this data. Chatbot, Taskboard, Machine learning etc are the other features that differentiate ServiceNow with its peers.

Tivoli Asset Management is comparatively cheap and easy to implement with a rich set of complementing modules. It can also be integrated easily with other asset management solutions and act as a single source of truth for other PMP processes

Return on Investment

ServiceNow IT Service Management

  • Overall ServiceNow has a positive impact on getting the SLA of tickets down in supporting our customers.
  • One negative impact has been the amount of time to get the product to produce an ROI, it's almost too big to fail and too big to replace. You almost become committed to the product. Good or bad.
  • Another negative impact would be if you track metrics of employees and time tracking, there is a lot of scenarios where engineers will track time on tickets but not get credit for closing them as the assignee function of tickets can only be tied to one user and credits only the engineer who closes the ticket.
  • Another positive impact would be the level of security for permissions and scaling the workloads is robust and you will get out of the system what your team is willing to put in.

  • By tracking software assets, we are able to easily manage the license compliance
  • By getting the over/under allocation metrics we are able to get full control on asset procurement
  • Recycle/Reuse asset procedures made simple
