Top ServiceNow Integration Resources

ServiceNow Informational Integration Desk

Think of an application integration as the relationship of enterprise applications. A relationship that will give birth to improvements in productivity, collaboration, and reducing organizational costs. Like all relationships, enterprise application integration can be both a ton of fun and headache all at the same time. Review these answers to the biggest ServiceNow integration challenges and start your relationship off in the right direction. 

ServiceNow Integration Challenges

Here we get feedback from a few ServiceNow application developers on some of the biggest challenges to a successful integration.

  • Information is categorization and labeling: A system integrated with ServiceNow may refer to categories using varying values and terminology. For a successful integration your team should be identifying the differences between related informational details. Do this and a solution with powerful integration capabilities like ServiceNow can transform and enrich the data sets being managed.
  • Incompatibility: Yeah, that's a big one. Integration is highly contingent on the apps you’d like to integrate. There are legacy or packaged apps that you cannot simply modify to couple with an integration solution. Let’s say you’d like to integrate ServiceNow with Jira. ServiceNow said “Let's go,” but Jira refused because it thinks it is incompatible with ServiceNow. You will need something to connect and harmonize these apps, so you can sync incidents in ServiceNow with issues in Jira and simultaneously update issue/incident status in both ServiceNow and Jira.
  • Do-it-yourself quandary: Do-it-yourself preparation can help ensure everything is custom fit to your specific preferences and requirements. But in the long run, it can turn out to be more expensive than hiring a ServiceNow partner as it can use up most of your time and energy, especially if you are not an expert. Likewise, self-service integration, if “re-designed effectively” according to Gartner, can be a good strategy for improving service. Yet it can also lead to more complexities and higher costs. While there are integration solutions that have potential without the expertise and resources to implment you may find yourself behind the power curve unelss of course you have a veteran ServiceNow implementation team.
  • Keeping everything within budget: Cost remains everyone’s ultimate concern. Gartner predicts that companies will allocate a bigger slice of their budget on integration by 2018, with “more than 50% of the cost of implementing 90% of new large systems” to be spent on integration.Gartner also sees through 2016, application integration expenditure of midsize to large companies will be over 33% higher than in 2013. To reduce costs, you need to reduce integration complexities that can lead to lengthy lead times and additional or unexpected deployment and maintenance costs.
