Digital transformation is the key for businesses to progress in the experience-as-a-service economy. In this journey, legacy ITSM systems are the roadblocks for the enterprise. So, modernizing the legacy ITSM is a must for business to sustain in this competitive environment. Here are the benefits a business can have by modernizing legacy ITSM systems.
Streamlines Service Delivery and Communication Workflows
ServiceNow research discloses that businesses having legacy ITSM systems are causing staff time waste close to 12 percent, (like writing back and forth emails). Thereby leading to bad user experiences. The ITSM modernization with AI-powered dashboard integrated tools like chatbots or voice assistants streamlines the communication process in the service request processing. Here, to get the work done, the users need to text or talk to the bot in the natural language and place their request.
These applications can be interfaced with various chat interfaces that are peripheral to the ITSM platform. These applications interact with the back-end business systems and get the job done. The intelligent dashboard itself understands, categorizes, assigns and follows up the service request till it gets resolved. Here users need not keep checking the portal to track request update. The modern ITSM platform prompts users if any progress in user’s request ticket is observed. This way modernized ITSM saves time streamlines workflows and improves the communication process in the service management process.

Enhanced Project Management (PM) Abilities for ITSM
Project managers often lose most of their valued time in task assignment and checking the work status by either by checking portal or writing emails. Instead, the AI-powered PPM tools and dashboards are capable of reading through the user requests, categorizing and assigning to the respective person.

This reduces the manager’s time in traversing through the huge list of catalog items of the portal. This way, the modern ITSM application process can quicken the decision-making process, reduce PM costs, and increase time to market (TTM).
