As a ServiceNow Gold Sales and Services Partner, InSource has completed more implementations than any other ServiceNow Partner – we’ve “been there and done it before.” Therefore, we know from experience that a successful ServiceNow implementation is dependent on a thorough and well-executed ServiceNow integration process, which is key for making this powerful platform robust and solution-oriented. During the ServiceNow integration process, the essential applications for your business are integrated within your ServiceNow platform to effectively and efficiently share information. The ServiceNow platform can be integrated with an on-premise systems or cloud-based applications.
While it is true that ServiceNow provides organizations with a broad range of abilities to integrate separate systems, it requires an experienced and skilled ServiceNow professional to scope out the integration process. What can be less apparent to an organization is the need for top ServiceNow talent to not only ensure a seamless information flow for the implementation process, but for any future integration needs.
How ServiceNow Talent Can Improve Your Platform Integration
While the ServiceNow platform is inherently user-friendly, the integration and implementation processes require IT service management and platform knowledge along with strong IT development skills that the average internal IT departments lack. For this reason, organizations that are implementing ServiceNow for the first time or looking to expand their platform’s capabilities typically seek out ServiceNow professionals for full-time hire or project-based work.
Regardless of the employment status, organizations need ServiceNow talent with a broad set of capabilities and specializations that are aligned with the organization’s vision and needs to ensure a seamless flow of information that provides ROI for the organization. Working with an IT staffing partner that specializes in ServiceNow staffing as well as service management is crucial to the platform’s integration success.
While the ServiceNow platform contains a large base of integration capabilities from a variety of third-party applications and data sources, having an experienced ServiceNow Administrator on staff or as contract hires can help ensure that an organization’s platform integration will be smooth with the proper functionality to fulfill their needs.
ServiceNow Developers and Administrators play an intricate role in the ServiceNow integration process as they work to accomplish high levels of security while avoiding on-premise and third-party system conflicts. Organizations that are implementing or expanding their ServiceNow platform need ServiceNow talent who are highly experienced with APIs and application development, along with project management and communication skills to work with department leaders on the integration planning process. Employing ServiceNow Developers or Administrators who are experienced in these areas can help streamline the integration process.
Through working with the developers and stakeholders, a ServiceNow Consultant works to ensure that the organization’s ServiceNow goals are met. ServiceNow Consultants must have the ability to see the organization, its people, processes and technologies from a holistic, service-orientated point of view. However, initial decisions such as developing and outlining specific needs, objectives, a roadmap, and budget are just the beginning tasks.
ServiceNow Consultants also help identify key performance milestones along with the path for achievement, which is critical for a successful ServiceNow integration. Many IT departments lack the expertise and ServiceNow knowledge necessary to develop the platform to its fullest potential while maximizing ROI, especially regarding complex workflows and platform integration.
ServiceNow consulting support is imperative to the platform’s implementation that can take the form of an implementation specialist who oversees the project through execution. The ability to bring together all key stakeholders under one framework of ITIL processes within the platform is a key component of the implementation scope, which requires an experienced specialist.
