There’sAccording to an independent survey, 80% of executives rated employee experience as important or very important. One of the most significant ways we can improve the employee experience today is by addressing the digital culture within an organization.
Part of my role, in ITSM Product Management, is delivering roadmap sessions to our customers and partners. I really enjoy this part of the job; showcasing some of the latest features that will be coming out in the next few releases (a glimpse of the future). More importantly, I love the feedback I receive and hearing how our customers are implementing their own new features and migrating applications and business services onto the ServiceNow platform. As I start to hear common themes (for example what’s ServiceNow’s position on SIAM and multi-vendor management?), I have a great opportunity to help influence our product roadmap and define priorities for our core product development teams.
IT operations has gone off the rails. It’s not the fault of hard-working technology professionals — in fact, it’s just the opposite — but as noted by Tech Republic, a recent study found that 62% of employees reported “broken IT processes” within their organization, and just 24% said they received “very prompt service” from in-house support.
There’s been tons of buzz around it for a while, but soon it will be here. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will take effect May 25, 2018, and will impact every company in any industry around the world that processes the personal data of European Union (EU) residents.
I think we all understand at this point that the ServiceNow platform can do a whole lot more than just "IT". Many of you are using the platform for Customer Relationship Management and Customer Service Management. Are you really, though, using those processes as intended?

The news today is flush with salacious stories of cyber-security breaches, data held hostage in brazen ransomware attacks, and compromised records and consumer information. So too has the fallout become increasingly familiar: broken trust, ruined brands, class-action lawsuits, and prolonged periods of finger pointing.
A lifecycle is a marketing framework illustrating the series of changes that occurs as you move a customer through the marketing and sales funnel. The lifecycle used to be fairly to the point, with a focus on need generation, consideration, engagement, evaluation, purchase, delivery and usage. But because of social media and customer behavior things have changed and there's a need to re-evaluate the customer lifecycle. Additionally the stages of the lifecycle are not as linear as they once were, now they are more fluid. The customer could jump stages in your lifecycle in a non-linear fashion. The customer is empowered and as a result the customer lifecycle looks much different.
"More is better." There's a statement to spark a debate if ever there was one. Arguably in some situations, this is true. For example "I have more time to do the things I want because ServiceNow helped me streamline my department's work." When it comes to choosing how many rows you want to see in each list in the application, it pays to be a bit more discerning. Just because you "can" display 1,000 rows in a list does not mean that you "should." If your users are complaining of slow form load times or that the system is slow to save records and show them their work list, you may be able to improve performance by displaying "just enough" data.
