Transforming IT Processes at Knowledge 2019

ServiceNow customers and systems integrator/global systems integrator partners trust Boomi for rapid, agile integration between ServiceNow and applications for human resources, enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), project portfolio management, development and more, whether in the cloud or on-premise.

In fact, a number of ServiceNow partners already use Boomi to integrate multiple ServiceNow instances internally for customers or to integrate ServiceNow to ServiceNow for help desk to help desk (H2H) case and incident management between companies. And some use Boomi as a managed service for ServiceNow integrated with other applications.

At ServiceNow’s annual user conference, Knowledge, May 5-9 in Las Vegas, Boomi will demonstrate how our unified platform helps ServiceNow customers and partners transform IT service management (ITSM) processes from a service management perspective.

Visit Boomi in booth 753 at Knowledge 2019 to find out how we can help you extend and transform your ServiceNow environment.

Knowledge 2018 brought together more than 20,000 ServiceNow customers and partners, and this year’s event is on track to surpass that number. Many of these attendees are looking to modernize ITSM, as well as strengthen security, improve customer satisfaction and support new applications.

Transforming ITSM Processes

That's where Boomi, as a ServiceNow Technology Partner, can help. While ServiceNow has a robust offering, Boomi helps customers with that “last mile” — integrating ServiceNow with external applications and automating processes to accelerate business and IT outcomes. And because Boomi's low-code platform requires little to no scripting, it’s easy to map and launch these integrations.

Boomi offers pre-packaged connectors that allow you to quickly and easily integrate ServiceNow data with any cloud or on-premise application such as SAP, Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle Cloud, Salesforce or Workday. For example, you may want to integrate your ServiceNow incidents with your Salesforce instance accounts, or retrieve cost center data and update it in your ERP.

The new Boomi ServiceNow REST connector enables you to directly connect to ServiceNow and use a process to insert, retrieve, update, delete, and query records (incidents, cases, accounts, customers, products, etc.) in ServiceNow. With this connector configured within your process, Boomi Integration can map to and from virtually any system using the ServiceNow REST connector to move data into and out of ServiceNow. The ServiceNow REST connector complements the original Boomi ServiceNow SOAP Connector.

To ensure your data is consistent and up-to-date across the ServiceNow Configuration Management Database (CMDB) and linked applications, Boomi Master Data Hub acts as a data steward. Having this level of data governance in place reduces errors and reduces risk, allowing the CMDB to be used with confidence as a single source of the truth.

Boomi can also extend the value of your ServiceNow platform to external users. This reduces manual work, streamlines processes and provides a positive experience to these users, strengthening relationships. Say you need users from outside your company, such as vendors or contractors, to raise incidents within ServiceNow. With Boomi Flow, you can give customers or other external users the ability to submit those incidents from other applications or devices.

Accelerating Time-to-Value

As a cloud-based platform, Boomi makes it easy to integrate ServiceNow across your enterprise without the cost and complexity of traditional middleware or custom coding. The ability to connect multiple applications in weeks or days rather than months or years provides the fast time-to-value that many organizations seek.

For example, a large oil and gas company selected Boomi after evaluating MuleSoft, Informatica and Oracle integration tools. Now it is using the Boomi platform to integrate more than 100 applications, including ServiceNow, SAP Ariba and Oracle E-Business Suite.

Whether you are looking to integrate ServiceNow with other systems and applications, increase the quality of your data, or want to extend the ServiceNow platform's value to your external constituents, Boomi's unified platform can help.
