Overall Satisfaction with ServiceNow

ServiceNow is our incident, change and problem management tool. It also serves many other functions throughout the organization and it utilized by the entire company. The knowledge repositories for documenting procedural information is heavily used as well as a catalog for users to request specific services from IT and or business teams.
  • Easy to use and straightforward with options that fit just about every department.
  • API easily accepts SOAP requests for automatic ticket generation and integration into other applications.
  • Dashboards and a built in visual task board similar to a Kanban board are nice features.
  • Unable to create robust service offerings for end users in the catalog. The current process works fine for our needs but have to tailor certain offerings based on limitations of the product.
  • Certain aspects are clunky and hard to correctly setup. For example, oncall calendars and scheduling require the user to define several components which are not intuitive and don't seem to follow a logical flow.
  • With the ability to interface with the product thru their API, we have automated incident creation for several applications as well as automation of Adhoc task creation. This alleviates the need for manual creation which used to happen in the past.
  • With the Knowledge Repository, many articles have been written to help end users solve problems without having to call the Help Desk.
Have not used any other product for ITSM.
I have not used ServiceNow support directly, however it appears the company sticks to a steady release plan for new versions and updates.
