Frequently Asked Questions
ServiceNow ITSM (IT Service Management) is a suite of cloud-based tools designed to help organizations manage their IT services and infrastructure. It includes a range of modules, including incident management, change management, problem management, request management, knowledge management, and more.
With ServiceNow ITSM, organizations can streamline and automate their IT service management processes, reduce operational costs, improve service quality, and enhance customer satisfaction.
The platform provides a centralized system for managing IT services, which improves visibility and control over IT operations. It is configurable and can be tailored to meet the specific needs of different organizations, making it a flexible solution for managing IT services.
ITIL (IT Infrastructure Library) and ITSM (IT Service Management) are related but distinct concepts.
ITIL is a framework for IT service and asset management that was developed (in the 1980s) and managed by the UK Government’s Central Computer and Telecommunications Agency (CCTA). ITIL provides a comprehensive set of guidelines for managing IT services, covering topics such as service strategy, design, transition, operation, and continual improvement. ITIL is widely adopted in many organizations as a de facto standard for IT service management.
On the other hand, ITSM refers to the process of managing IT services in an efficient and effective manner. It includes a range of activities, including incident management, problem management, change management, configuration management, and more. It involves the use of tools (like ServiceNow) and processes to deliver IT services to customers and to ensure that those services meet customer needs and expectations.
In summary, ITIL is a framework of best practices for IT service management, while ITSM refers to the broader process of managing IT services. ITIL provides a set of guidance for ITSM, but organizations may choose to implement ITSM using other frameworks or methodologies as well.
