Let’s dig deeper to understand generative AI and ServiceNow’s brand new solutions.
What is Generative AI
Generative AI is a powerful technology that helps create models that can generate new data automatically. Generative AI is making significant transformations in the service management sector by automating several processes. ServiceNow has been using generative AI to automate and optimize its services for the ease of its customers.
Now Assist for Virtual Agent: What is it
Now Assist for Virtual Agents, uses generative AI to deliver more direct, relevant, and conversational responses to the questions asked by customers. This will allow businesses to automate several repetitive tasks such as password resets or any other service requests.
If a user asks a question, the Now Assist platform will use generative AI integration to provide an immediate, automated response based on internal data. This will help users to immediately get the information they require. With Now Assist for Virtual Agents, users will be able to:
- Access a low-code builder environment for configuration and deployment of conversational experiences powered by generative AI.
- A drag and drop environment with a Virtual Agent Designer.
- Receive direct responses in real-time conversations with the best suited format including images, videos, links, texts, relevant knowledge, and base content.
ServiceNow works across departments and systems, so if a user doesn’t know who to ask and where to start, Now Assist for Virtual Agent can accurately converse and provide solutions. This will help increase productivity, drive faster resolution, and create higher self-service rates.
ServiceNow Generative AI Controller
ServiceNow Generative AI Controller allows easy connectivity between ServiceNow instances, Microsoft Azure OpenAI service and OpenAI API large language models. This means, users can embed direct access to large language models (LLM), which enables them to get correct and straightforward answers without them having to scour through multiple knowledge based articles.
This solution enables seamless integration of generative AI capabilities and empowers organizations to unlock effective self-service and work experiences.
As a part of ServiceNow’s low-code development tools, the Generative AI Controller allows users across organizations to apply generative AI to automate applications. It enables companies to optimize workflows and innovate at scale on the Now Platform.
