ServiceNow Customer Service Case Management Ticket Integration with Development

First ServiceNow Integration was for ITSM

ServiceNow has long been a leader in the Information Technology Service Management (ITSM) space. It offers a robust and flexible set of tools to optimally develop, deliver, and manage IT services. ServiceNow ITSM is commonly used to handle internal incidents, service requests, problems, and changes.

What about External Customers?

Prior to the Istanbul release, the only option for serving external customers with ServiceNow was to engineer the ITSM platform for that purpose. This worked okay, but it was time-consuming both to design it and maintain it.  

Istanbul & Customer Service Management

The Instanul release delivered the a new and dedicated solution for external service, enter Customer Service Management (CSM). Unlike ITSM, CSM is designed specifically to serve external customers. It’s an intuitive way for customers to engage with customer service agents or help desk. If issues can't immediately resolved (think Q&A), common procedure suggests a case needs to be created. Case are typically managed and resolved but customer support. Software vendors sometimes also capture feature request through cases as well.

What if I need to Escalate the Case to Development?

Generally, that's not a problem if you are using ServiceNow Agile Development. But what if you aren't using ServiceNow Agile Development? If you are like most organizations, you are stuck managing case escalation in Excel and/or email cases via Outlook to dev. But that's not the end of the problem. Someone has to enter (re-enter) the data (case details) in the developer line-of-business app or work management solution. The top (most popular) developer platforms to manage work include Microsoft's Azure DevOps, Atlassian's Jira, CA's RallyDev, CollabNet's VersionOne and GitHub. Note, this far from a complete list.
