ServiceNow SCCM Integration

There are many problems with using disparate systems. Perhaps the most obvious is that it can be challenging to keep track of all your data. If you have different systems for different parts of your business, it can be difficult to find and combine all that data when you need it, leading to mistakes and missed opportunities.  

Another problem with using disparate systems is that it can be difficult to integrate your data with other systems. For example, if you want to use your data in a report or analysis, you may have to jump through hoops to get it into the proper format. Again, this can add time and complexity to your work. 

Finally, using disparate systems can be expensive. For example, you may have to purchase and maintain multiple systems, which can be costly. Plus, you may have to spend time learning how to use each system, which can also be a drain on your resources. 

If you’re looking to reduce the hassles of using disparate systems, Shift Left for ServiceNow can handle all your needs when it comes to integrating ServiceNow and Microsoft ConfigMgr / SCCM. In addition, Shift Left will make it easy to keep track of your data, integrate with other systems, and be affordable to use.

Problems System Administrators and Help Desk Teams Experience Today 

The Help Desk staff sometimes need to escalate issues reported in ServiceNow, such as Active Directory, Microsoft Configuration Manager / SCCM, LAPS, MBAM, and more, to individuals with more privileged access to many separate systems. 

An organization’s productivity suffers when problems are escalated, resulting in extended downtime for end-users. 

To aid with troubleshooting issues, escalation teams often get bogged down with demands for access to certain information to help resolve the issues, such as not being allowed to access device or user information, such as the last known reboot, etc.

It brings new team members up to a faster speed 

Employees at the help desk have been known to make things worse by entering settings outside of their scope of knowledge.
