And the best part: you can start small and grow based on your business priorities.
Adding orchestration to the mix lets you increase agility by automating IT and business processes
It’s hard to drive value across the business when your time is spent putting out fires and completing manual, error-prone tasks. As much as you want to automate tasks and processes, dealing with disparate tools and lack of coordination between teams will only slow you down.
You can reduce tasks with Password Reset and Client Software Distribution, and improve end‑user productivity by giving users the ability to access services directly. Codeless automation and activity packs also automate and accelerate processes for employee onboarding, managed file transfer, and remediation.
Your IT team wants to launch products quickly, so employees can get work done fast. But provisioning cloud resources too quickly can lead to virtual machine (VM) sprawl, unmanaged resources, and out‑of‑control costs. IT needs to monitor resource allocation and budget, without slowing down innovation.
Once deployed, ServiceNow Cloud Management will give your IT teams the ability to provision public and private cloud infrastructure and services fast, while providing consistent management and cost visibility of those resources. IT teams can choose from Amazon Cloud, Microsoft Azure, VMware vSphere, and extend to other public and private cloud vendors—making it easy to manage and control your cloud management system.
