3 ServiceNow & Improving IT Service ServiceNow is dedicated to improving the industry's opinion of the value software delivers. ServiceNow develops, implements and supports a suite of on-demand IT service management applications offered via the Internet as software as a service (SaaS). These applications are licensed on a simple and economical subscription basis. ServiceNow is redefining the IT management market, providing a new opportunity for organisations to fix their age-old problems, but also providing the platform to tackle service management challenges that have been perceived until recently as too complex to realistically address with software. ServiceNow believe that an organisation regardless of size or complexity requires a "single system of record" for all processes being used to acquire, deploy, manage, assess and retire business services and the underlying infrastructure upon which an organisation depends. Effective IT service management is all about implementing process with as much automation as possible, remaining flexible to your business requirements and responding to reporting and workflow needs. ServiceNow applications cover all ITIL processes and are natively integrated on a single platform providing Web 2.0 intuitiveness and unprecedented process automation.

A service portfolio is essentially a menu that describes IT service offerings provided to the business including scope, price and availability. Service portfolio management is the act of documenting available IT services, defining who is entitled to receive specific services, and tracking fulfilment of commitments including availability. Field Service Field Service orchestrates resources and inventory logistics to ensure field-based service delivery commitments are met with high accuracy and at the least possible cost Includes understanding inventory availability, resource availability and service locations. When one of these components of field service management is unavailable or inaccurately calculated, service work time is greatly impacted IT Cost IT cost management helps to establish the cost of IT service delivery and convey the value IT provides in financial terms. Assigns costs to work time, tasks, and CIs to calculate the total cost of each offered service. Compares actual, planned and projected costs to budgets. Costs can be dissected and allocated to business units, cost centres and any organisational entity managed within ServiceNow.
8 Application Business Function Business Value Project and Portfolio Project and portfolio management helps to optimise resources and meet project objectives by managing resource utilisation, status and costs across the project portfolio and all IT service management disciplines. Includes project management, resource management and project portfolio management. Project management is used to plan, manage and coordinate resources to achieve project objectives. Project portfolio management provides a macro view of all planned, in-flight and completed projects and tracks resource utilisation. Software Lifecycle The software development lifecycle (SDLC) is a critical part of the ITIL release management process. It helps ensure that released applications are high quality and meet customer needs by managing the complete software development process including enhancement request and defect prioritisation, definition of release content and tasks, testing and release to production. Gather all your enhancement requests, defects and problems in one place SDLC includes planning board functionality to facilitate release planning Use project-based time management or not, it s entirely up to you 1 Runbook Automation ServiceNow Runbook Automation orchestrates business and IT processes normally done manually.

11 ServiceNow Architecture The ServiceNow platform as a service is 100% designed and developed by internal development staff, under the direction of CPO, Fred Luddy and VP of Development, David Osman. It is a Java based platform using a Tomcat Web server and running on Linux. Generally speaking, most customers run on a MySQL database although some customers are running on Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server and Sybase. Automatic, Non-Disruptive Upgrades Customers of ServiceNow benefit from continuous innovation as three releases per year deliver significant new functionality and applications that are included in the subscription license fee. Importantly due to patent-pending technology developed by ServiceNow, these automated upgrades do not affect any configuration / customisations performed by a customer on their instance(s) dramatically reducing the Total Cost of Ownership (by reducing the internal and external cost of upgrades). ServiceNow is a single-tenant architecture, meaning that every customer gets their own application and database set. All customer data runs in separate databases and therefore is both physically and logically separated. At the instance level, ServiceNow can support a multi-tenant deployment. Customers utilising ServiceNow as a managed service platform or to support multiple business units can segregate customer data, business rules and user interface presentation. This capability is enabled during the implementation based on customer requirements. Further details on ServiceNow functionality and architecture can be found at Dedicated Database and Application Set Elevated customer security Customer data is not mixed with other customers. Faster application response times Greater scalability Extensive application customisation preserved through upgrade
