Realignment of resources in ServiceNow
In certain instances, to concentrate and specialize in certain tasks, we recommend that performance involves a re-alignment of Its resources. More precisely, the vertical application domains are structured around business functions and are more oriented and focused on providing their customer organisations with direct application services, with less concern for those activities covered by the PAAS and IAAS.
In comparison, with a renewed “customer” emphasis on their application domains within the overall enterprise, the PAAS and IAAS resources will be concentrated on their respective technology areas. For instance, as customers with a customer service approach, a resource assigned to the PAAS in database management support would approach analysts and developers within vertical application domains. This is aligned with the best practises in today’s IT industry and is a suitable model to be followed in the future.
With an emphasis on best practises focused on the notion of service management, the IT industry is rapidly maturing. A growing emphasis on efficient service delivery to the final customer is at the centre of this progression towards service management. For our traditional larger client, the recommendations are to reorganise the IT services based on the following Business & Service requirements.
