Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The process involving the original setup of the solution is excellent.""It does a good job of collecting the data that's necessary for data centers, and IT's operations.""The biggest advantage of ServiceNow is the value that it brings.""They provide the ability to see into the Discovery tools I want. They offer the best tool view.""I find that the Discovery and scripting features are the most useful.""The best part about ServiceNow Discovery is that it is included in the ServiceNow suite.""The initial setup is pretty easy.""It's a single system of record and it captures the relationships."

"For incident response tasks, all these tasks can get done in minutes with minimal disruption to the end-user.""The security features are very valuable.""I'm not so familiar with the tool but I like the interaction of the console to the picture. Patching is the primary model I have been focusing on for the last couple of weeks. So I have created a proof of concept environment and have been checking the available features.""Threat hunting is a very good feature on Tanium. We have just started using it and have not used it extensively."

Cons
"Without improvement in the patters, applications can't be discovered""The service mapping component is less developed than it is in other solutions, and is in need of improvement.""Technical support has not been helpful when we have come across problems.""They can expand on the plugins for some of the other tools.""In terms of improvement, I would like for it to be possible to use without coding. I would like a dropdown so that every customer can do it easily for himself and can understand it.""On the Software Asset Management part of it, I expect additional reconciliation and Discovery features there.""The solution needs to improve the cost of the solution. There are a few different solutions and they do act the same and have the same types of capabilities, however, the cost is quite high.""When you switch versions, for example, when you go from Paris to Quebec they will introduce many new things and occasionally things break when they do that."

More ServiceNow Discovery Cons »

"The solution can give a lot of false positives.""The solution lacks mobility.""Most of the time, agent-relative issues have to be more equipped with self-healing features. At times, the agent is there, but for some reason, it doesn't report a status. It gives certain problems that are obviously agent-based.""The performance could improve in future releases. We have had performance issues in specialized web environments, but overall I think the problems are less than 2% of the computer systems being used."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It's a bit expensive compared to other products in the market, but it's worth the money you pay because it's far advanced in terms of features, automation, and capabilities compared to other products.""There is a subscription for ServiceNow Discovery. It's expensive, but I think it's one of the best solutions on the market, so it's worth it.""The price could be better. It's a bit on the pricey side.""This solution is a paid option within the ServiceNow framework."
