Service Mapping

Service Mapping gives you full control over your IT services that drive your business services. The automated capture of assets and their dependencies allow for reduced downtime and better change control, impact analysis and visibility of the IT landscape.

 

Service mapping for a transparent IT infrastructure

The provision, expansion and introduction of IT-supported services has long since established itself as the core of successful companies in the B2C and B2B sectors. In this constantly reinventing world of cloud hosting, micro services, PaaS, IOT and innovative client devices, reliable operation of IT services requires one thing above all: transparency.

But in many companies, this transparency is hampered by a multitude of distributed management systems, manual processes and incomplete documentation on dependencies. As a result, it is not only unclear which devices, applications and services are actually located in the IT infrastructure of a company, but also how they interact with the business services.

This is where service mapping comes in, which goes beyond pure inventory: based on specifically selected entry points, the complete service tree is mapped with all dependencies between devices, application services and software components. The visualisation and quick access to the related information enable full control over your IT services.

Added value of service mapping from a business and operational perspective

Advantages from a business perspective

From a business perspective, you gain transparency about the dependencies of business services on the underlying application level - and thus ultimately an insight into the critical infrastructure that is directly responsible for maintaining your services to the end customer.

Advantages from an operational perspective

From an operational perspective, this transparency is even more far-reaching. The insight into the dependencies enables the quick identification of the actual causes of disruptions. A collision calculation enables you to carry out changes in a more risk-minimised manner. In the event of failures, affected business services can be identified and the necessary steps for communication and service recovery can be taken.

How does service mapping work?

Think of service mapping like mapping an underground network: You start with your current location: where you are right now, at your local underground stop. Here you first record all the information that helps you understand how to get to the next station: Timetables, train tracks, underground designations and route maps. Once you have gathered this information, draw your starting point on your map and note which track which train leaves from.

Then get on one of the underground trains at a track and travel one station further. There you repeat the procedure of your starting point. And you keep doing this until you have found all the stations. Then you notice that at some stations there are crossovers to other networks: Bus transport, regional rail, long-distance trains, airport, freight transport and others.

Capture relationships between IT assets: Top-down view

First, a starting point is defined - the so-called entry point. The goal here is a top-down view. Unlike an underground network, in service mapping we move exclusively from "top" to "bottom". Our entry point is therefore usually the point at which service delivery takes place: The homepage of your online shop, the SAP system or the load balancing service.

This entry point is now scanned and specific information is read out that points to the next station: The Hosting Server, Containering System or the Micorservices. And these points are then also scanned for further information. This is repeated until finally the complete service map is created.

The main advantage: Because this type of mapping is available on purely technical attributes in the respective entities (devices, applications, microservices, etc.), these service maps can not only be built automatically, but are also kept up to date through regularly performed scans and can also be traced historically. Changes in the dependencies are shown and planned changes can be reconciled.

Service Mapping with ServiceNow®

With its two sub-products Discovery and Service Mapping, the ServiceNow® ITOM Visibility Suite brings transparency to the IT infrastructure - and does so in a largely automated way.

With Discovery - the inventory tool - information on devices and applications is collected by means of scans of the IT infrastructure, stored in a structured way in the CMDB and continuously updated so that it can be used by different stakeholders and in processes.

Service mapping in turn maps the complete service tree and shows dependencies between application services, the underlying software components, the associated devices and the necessary IT infrastructure in terms of network communication.

Features of ServiceNow® Service Mapping
