four magic questions Questions to ask your ITSM vendor ASP response Service-now.com response Can you set up a proof of concept or trial demo in minutes? If offered, a dedicated demo instance will take a couple of weeks to implement. Service-now.com can provide a dedicated demo instance in a matter of minutes. How can I customize the offering? All customization requirements must be submitted to the ASP – you do not control when or how customizations will be implemented. Customize to your heart ’s content with the guarantee your changes will be preserved through all upgrades. How often will the product be upgraded? Can you outline upgrade process for me? Expect an 18 month delivery cycle with a highly disruptive upgrade. Receive new functionality three times a year through our automated upgrade process. How is a hosted version of your software more cost effective than an on-premise version of the software? Your TCO will be much higher. ASPs use the same old client/server technologies with a Web front end. The only difference is that the ASP is managing the application. You will pay for the additional service. SaaS delivers higher levels of automation, not more bodies. Economies of scale allow us to deliver one low price, while auto-upgrades and Web 2.0 functionality reduce your management costs and increase your effectiveness.
How is the system administered and who is involved?
How do I change or customize the application?
Can I speak with one reference using your ‘SaaS’ product?
ASP ain ’t SaaS Highly complex, rigid ITSM applications
Require higher cost, specialized resources
No customer references
18 month roadmap with little new functionality
Archaic and complex UIs and process flows reduce adoption
Very difficult to get information for reporting
Vendors pushing “OOB” best practices
Not possible to customize the application
No flexibility to map to customer processes - dependent on ASP to make changes
Technology impedes IT service and business success
Excessive licensing costs with multiple dependencies
High-cost consulting fees for implementation, customization and upgrades
High-dollar integration efforts that break during upgrades or system changes
