Many companies are struggling to recover their losses and streamline their business operations during the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to remote working and limited resources, it can become difficult for businesses to support various functions and processes such as day-to-day reporting, customer service management, ticket resolution, incident management, and issue escalation. This difficulty in managing business operations creates or adds to productivity and communication challenges among teams.
Keeping business operations running smoothly also becomes a challenge if functional departments use a different set of applications as these products typically do not speak to each other out of the box. As a result, this can lead to inefficiencies that can quickly escalate labor costs as data must be entered manually from one system to another, which can also lead to human errors.
This is where API and application integration solutions come to the rescue. Application and data integration and automation tools help businesses in improving efficiencies of different functions and departments by integrating different systems and automating processes between them.
There are many business processes that can be automated by integrating various enterprise applications. Integrating these applications to process specific events without manual intervention is one way in which businesses can do more with less and come out ahead during these tough economic times.
Today, we are going to look at ServiceNow, which is a popular enterprise service management solution leveraged by operations, information technology (IT), and supply chain teams globally. ServiceNow is available as an application connector on the popular no-code API and data integration platform, Connect iPaaS powered by RoboMQ.
8 ServiceNow Integrations for Streamlining Business Operations
1. Workday Integration with Active Directory (AD), ServiceNow, and PagerDuty to Automate Employee Onboarding
A common challenge organizations face is streamlining and automating the employee onboarding and offboarding process, and lifecycle events. Many companies fall into the trap of manually creating tickets in ServiceNow for IT teams to perform certain actions, such as to create or update user identities in Microsoft Active Directory, or provide employees with the systems and tools they need access to. For many companies, this process can take hours or even days to complete.
HR and IT teams can speed up this process from hours down to seconds by integrating Workday or ADP to create and/or update user identities in Active Directory, create tickets in ServiceNow, and send out alerts through PagerDuty, Twilio, Nexmo, Slack, Outlook, or WhatsApp. This integration can also be set up directly from Workday or ADP to create or update incidents in ServiceNow using simple drag-and-drop functions.
