So, you’ve adopted the ServiceNow platform and are beginning to reap the benefits of your investment in your business. Now what? Protecting your investment by ensuring that implementation is not the last step is your platform governance journey – also called sustainment – is arguably one of the most important parts of the process.
Sustainment goes beyond just maintenance. It can be as simple as an administrative team providing platform support, or it can take a more holistic approach that incorporates additional resources — like architects, business analysts, and advisors — to facilitate platform enhancement and optimization.
Many customers do not have the in-house expertise to ensure the platform is properly maintained or enhanced to meet their growing business needs. For some, it may be too difficult and/or expensive to hire a ServiceNow admin team to manage their software after implementation. However, sustainment gives your business the opportunity to outsource administration of the ServiceNow platform to a team of experienced ServiceNow professionals to keep the platform running and ensure it is governed according to best practices.Sustainment allows customers to focus more on internal business needs to drive adoption and value to stakeholders, rather than focusing on the day to day administration of the platform.
