Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with ServiceNow IT Business Management.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
I would like to see some artificial intelligence incorporated into the management functions. The initial setup is complex and should be simplified.
One of the key areas important to me is the reporting side. The dashboard interface is limited functionally and is not very user friendly or particularly intuitive so that, for example, if you want to combine or correlate incidents with relevant changes for a report, it's not easily done and makes reporting difficult. It's a gap in the solution. What I do now is take the data from ServiceNow and put it in Power BI for visualizing and for combining data analysis because ServiceNow doesn't give me that option. Also, the performance on the test boarding in my view is quite slow - every time that you change something in the automatic report, your interaction in building the dashboards is really horrible. For additional features, I think we are now implementing our own chat bot, so they should do a lot more on visualization. I would prefer to have a really nice interface into Power BI if their test board is not up to it.
The solution is quite extensive, and I’ve only used the sections related to project management. I’m not sure if it was lacking any features. For me, it had everything I needed. I’ve never experienced any technical issues at all. The only issue for us is the pricing. It’s quite high in comparison with the competition.
The program isn't very user-friendly, as it is rather difficult to use. However, it could be the way it was configured in the company I worked for, so I cannot be sure because I don't have any other references.
The cost could be improved. The solution is quite pricey. The solution should have the capacity to integrate with the latest promotion of MES projects. Right now it's not working so well.
The timing reporting module, and how it's used is a bit difficult to understand. Everything related to project management is quite extensive. It needs to be simplified. At first, our users didn't want to use it, because it seems a bit complex.
