Navigating a complex ITOM landscape

The healthcare provider faced significant challenges with its IT operations management (ITOM). Despite being a long-time user of ServiceNow, the hospital struggled with data quality and reliability issues in its configuration management database (CMDB) and automated discovery processes. These challenges hindered visibility into its IT estate, affecting operational efficiency and decision-making.


Strategic remediation and enhancement

The client, leveraging Cask’s expertise in ServiceNow ITOM solutions, embarked on a remediation project focused on high-priority CMDB and discovery issues. The solution involved the following:

  • Configuring CMDB deduplication, reclassification, and reconciliation rules to ensure data accuracy
  • Cleaning up configuration item (CI) and asset CI classes to streamline asset management
  • Implementing and configuring out-of-the-box (OOB) CMDB health dashboards and key performance indicators (KPIs) for continuous improvement
  • Defining discovery schedules, IP ranges, credentials, and locations to enhance the efficiency and coverage of asset discovery processes
  • Providing guidance on establishing robust CMDB data governance practices

Through these strategic initiatives, the hospital has set a robust foundation for continuous improvement in IT operations, ensuring long-term sustainability and enhanced service delivery capabilities.
