IT Operations

CNET Global Solutions Inc is a recognized leader in enabling the IT Organization with process guidance across all life cycles of a service. We support our clients through the basic transition and operations processes like request, incident, change, release, knowledge, and problem management, as well as with the processes that have traditionally been considered more difficult to implement like capacity management, demand management, service level management, and availability management.

CNET Global Solutions key focus is on simplifying what we believe to be the core of good service management—configuration management and the Configuration Management Database (CMDB). At the heart of configuration management is the service. Most people focus on “controlling configuration items” when it comes to the process. We believe that the true value of the process is in enabling the CMDB to be an effective supporter of the service. An effective CMDB can help you build your services, understand them, explain them to your customers, and even improve them. A CMDB can go through levels of maturity based on your IT’s level of maturity. Our approach is to match the strategic goals of your IT with your CMDB to enable those goals.

Strategy

The strategy phase involves the development of strategic actions to gain an advantage in business and technology efforts. The application of a consistent framework is necessary for subsequent phases.

Requirements and Design

The requirements and design phases define the detailed requirements, priorities, and scope of the engagement. These phases are critical to reducing risk and ensuring project completeness.

Build

The build phase executes the development and customization of the solution. This phase also involves the majority of preparation activities for implementation.

Implement

The implement phase delivers the business solution and supports the associated transition activities. This phase also requires additional planning to ensure the continuity of all business operations.

Operate

The operate phase delivers the solution and includes post-implementation activities. This phase also consists of identifying future improvements and providing on-going support.

Extending your ServiceNow platform to business service applications beyond IT, such as HR, procurement, or R&D, presents a host of new opportunities for organizations. Easy-to-use form and workflow-driven applications can be deployed quickly and without the need to source, procure, or prepare a new environment.

New applications on ServiceNow can:

  • Leverage your existing instance and foundational data such as locations, users, and the information from any other application already deployed in ServiceNow.
  • Deploy quickly with a relatively small amount of development and configuration effort.
  • Develop a prototype quickly to demonstrate functionality to stakeholders.

Challenges presented to organizations:

  • How to transition an IT Service Management (ITSM)-focused platform to one applicable to a broader business audience.
  • How to best enforce governance on a new instance of the platform.
  • How to continuously improve your ITSM platform applications while making room for and planning to support new business applications.
  • How to identify new applications as candidates for the ServiceNow platform.
  • How to manage groups of developers working in the same development environment.

ServiceNow offers a feature rich platform for rapidly building business applications. Current customers can learn from others’ challenges and successes building business applications along with their own. This benefit combined with the implementation team’s inherent IT operation knowledge can offer a smooth transition to a steady state after an organization goes live. And learning to leverage IT operational information allows organizations to better plan and run business applications.
