Business Challenge

After divestment from its parent company in 2017, our customer became independent and had to establish their own ITSM processes, operations, and support from scratch. The client relied on Tietoevry Enterprise ITSM System and Service Desk as well.

It was important to enable self-service capabilities within a dedicated ServiceNow solution. Our client wanted to have an intuitively designed self-service portal meeting the specific needs of their diverse user base across different departments. Most importantly, the system had to allow the client’s internal team to maintain it without any external help.

The portal had to optimize the processing of end-users requests and streamline the ticket history on the client’s side. One of the technical challenges was to integrate the existing Tietoevry Enterprise ITSM System with a chosen ServiceNow ITSM system and Self-Service Portal.
