Overview of Virima and ServiceNow®’s collaboration for IT modernization
IT Management is an essential function that supports all business operations, including communication and strategic decision-making. It focuses on managing the resources related to IT operations and prioritizing IT-related infrastructure issues. On the other hand, IT modernization refers to the process of updating and upgrading an organization’s IT infrastructure, systems, and processes to align with current technology trends, industry standards, and business needs.
It also involves adopting new technologies, replacing outdated systems, optimizing workflows, and enhancing overall efficiency. To put it simply, IT modernization aims to make the organization more agile and, scalable. On the other hand, it ensures security, and competitiveness in the digital landscape.
Particularly, one of the crucial aspects of IT modernization is the implementation of proactive, and automated IT management tools, such as Virima Discovery and Service Mapping for ServiceNow®.
To clarify, for organizations to excel in IT modernization, the implementation of integrated discovery and service mapping solutions like Virima is integral. With these tools, organizations can track their IT service management accurately, find areas for improvement, and strategically use their resources. Hence, an upgraded IT management process leads to more productive and efficient service delivery to end-users.
Enhanced Efficiency and Service Quality through ServiceNow® and Virima Integration
Conversely, one of the remarkable features of ServiceNow® is its Workflow platform, a powerful tool for unifying IT, risk management, and security operations under one umbrella. This amalgamation allows for more streamlined and effective management of tasks, resources, and processes. The uniform platform assists in identifying and realizing quick wins, disseminating best practices, reducing redundant efforts, and increasing overall productivity. Interestingly, this collaborative environment plays a significant role in IT modernization and is a vital tool in efficiently managing IT tasks.
A Unified IT platform like Virima ensures accurate data in the CMDB and helps IT organizations deliver services efficiently. Moreover, this integration not only increases efficiency but also enhances the quality of the support provided. Therefore, it supplies end-users with an elevated service experience.
How Virima and ServiceNow® bring IT modernization to IT management
As paper-based, error-prone, and time-consuming processes are proactively phased out, a noticeable transition takes place. The partnership between Virima and ServiceNow® is emblematic of this shift, signaling a giant leap forward in advancing IT management.
Here’s a deeper look into the various aspects it helps in:
Asset discovery and IT Asset Management (ITAM)
The importance of maintaining the most complete and current data cannot be overstated in the process of IT management. For IT modernization, keeping track of all existing assets, their configuration, and their inter-dependencies is fundamental. That’s where Virima’s Discovery comes in.
Virima Discovery ensures that the ServiceNow® CMDB (Configuration Management Database) is maintained with the most complete and current data. Consequently, it allows for better IT management by keeping track of all existing assets, their configuration, and their inter-dependencies, which is integral for IT modernization.
Meanwhile, Virima also excels in managing the entire lifecycle of IT assets, providing full visibility, and ensuring compliance with various standards and regulations. This includes tracking hardware, software, and licensing details, as well as configurations and relationships between assets.
ViVID™ Service Mapping
A central component of IT management is understanding the organization and interplay of various IT services. Service Mapping is a critical tool that can help IT managers visualize their service delivery model, quickly discover issues, and streamline service delivery for enhanced user experience.
Fortified with the ViVID™ Service Mapping feature, the process becomes much simpler. This feature assists IT service management in efficiently visualizing their service delivery model. By expediting the problem identification and resolution process, the ViVID™ Service Mapping feature contributes to improved service delivery.
IT teams can minimize downtime, reduce the mean time to repair (MTTR), and enhance overall service availability and performance. Moreover, the feature enables IT professionals to prioritize their efforts effectively, ensuring that critical issues receive immediate attention and resolution.
Enhanced ROI due to IT modernization
Virima’s Discovery and Service Mapping for ServiceNow® accelerates the “time to value” of ServiceNow® CMDB. It achieves this by making the asset data discovery and service mapping process faster and more efficient. Furthermore, the integration promises at least a 50% savings over ServiceNow® Discovery, demonstrating a direct financial benefit.
