ServiceNow CMBD Benefits | Binmile


A leading retailer in the UK realizes the need for a centralized platform to manage all their IT activities. The client had dispersed data in silos, with the company processes either overlapping or not crossing paths at all. Also, as they were in the retail business, they have many hardware and software that spread across business divisions, functions, and geographies, making it difficult for them to maintain or have a clear picture of the current standing of their hardware and software assets (also known as CIs).
As they are in more than a dozen countries with business revenues in billions of business environments, require accurate and real-time insight into their IT environment. Such huge organizations require substantial capital expenditures on IT infrastructure. Also, it is equally essential that the ROI on these investments is calculated. The client needs to make sure that the hardware and software are functioning smoothly at all times and that they have not spent more than what is required nor underspent, nor are there any idle IT resources blocking capital that could have been used otherwise for business growth and expansion.

The Challenge

The challenge is not to have a CMDB (Configuration Management Database) or CI (Configuration Items), but rather to have an automated process in place that is mapped correctly and provides 100% accurate insights with inevitable results.
The CMDB needed to be flexible and scalable to adapt to the pace of business strategy and speed. Also, the client had a different tool to find CIs and populate them in ServiceNow, which required integration. As there were many components and functions involved, such as global business presence, compliance, internal employees, and salespeople using either POS machines or desktops to manage store operations, the client needed a ServiceNow consultant who understood ITSM and their business at the very core.
The client has approached us for consultancy and guidance on the same.

A few of the prevailing concerns

  • No clear picture of current IT hardware and software assets
