Deloitte Selects ServiceNow to Optimize IT Service AutomationProfessional Services Firm to Provide Thousands of Employees With Intuitive Self-Service IT (June 13, 2012)
LONDON -- (Marketwire) -- 06/13/12 -- ServiceNow, a leading provider of cloud-based services to automate enterprise IT operations, today announced Deloitte LLP has selected ServiceNow for IT service automation to help optimize its business-facing IT services. The Deloitte IT organization required an approachable, modern solution to help deliver measurably improved IT service while providing more than 13,000 Deloitte employees with intuitive self-service IT.
Rapid time to value was essential to Deloitte, estimating ServiceNow software as a service (SaaS) will be implemented in about half the time required by a legacy, on-premises tool. Implementation is underway, with the first phase due to be completed early in the second half of 2012.
With ServiceNow, Deloitte recognized the benefits of a self-managing system that preserves configuration changes through consistent, automatic upgrades.
The modern and intuitive ServiceNow user interface promotes rapid adoption by both Deloitte IT users and end users for efficient IT service delivery. Users can easily help themselves through self-service IT, while IT staff productivity increases and IT services are more efficient because of the powerful simplicity of ServiceNow.
"We selected ServiceNow to help us deliver next-generation IT through a modern approach to IT service automation," says Mark Westbrook, Deloitte IT director. "ServiceNow works the way our people expect an evolved cloud service to work. We plan to deliver higher levels of customer service and satisfaction while taking greater pride in the business services we deliver. As we look to the future, the scalability of the ServiceNow platform will allow us to extend cloud service automation to our 13,000 employees in the UK and Switzerland."
In phase one, Deloitte plans to implement ServiceNow incident, problem, change and a configuration management database (CMDB). This initial phase will also include service catalog with employee self-service capabilities. The second phase will include purchasing, license and asset portfolio management, project and portfolio management, resource management, and release management to further automate IT operations.
