Insights on Sitecore’s approach on servicing customers on ServiceNow

Sitecore is continuously expanding their industry-leading digital offerings and accelerating their delivery of the first truly integrated, SaaS-based digital experience platform. As part of the company’s growth plan, Sitecore has made several acquisitions in the past years. The growth required first the standardization of the tooling and the processes to serve the customers without compromising their experience. We shifted the limited existing processes from different ITSM tools, used by different departments, to ServiceNow. After the successful adoption by the internal teams and by the customers, we continued to introduce new processes such as Incident Management, Change Management, Problem Management, Availability and Outage Management, more advanced Escalation Management.

As the next steps, we are looking into:

      • improving our integrations with ServiceNow, with the help of Integration Hub
      • creating more self-service options for customers to remove operations overhead on certain tasks
      • use more automation in workflows and extend them to optimize entire business processes
