More BMC Remedy Asset Management Pros →

"There are many expansions available.""Great that it's knowledge-based and you can use the flows in ServiceNow.""Good stable and scalable solution.""It's actually easy to understand.""It's great to do statuses or to review tasks.""Everything about the schema, including the design of ServiceNow, is great.""Your time-to-market, or TTM, becomes faster when you use ServiceNow. Even individuals that are not tech savvy can quickly change processes and workflows in it. This can make the organization as a whole more agile.""The pricing of the product is quite good.

More ServiceNow Pros →

Cons
"If a user isn't using an out-of-the-box configuration, it can get a bit complex.""Could be more user friendly for admins to manage.""Integration and deployment could be better. It could be easier and faster to integrate and deploy. It would also help if we could have a 360-degree view. It would be better if they changed it to a SaaS type of offering, which is becoming the standard.""BMC Remedy Asset Management could improve by adding intuitive dashboards."

More BMC Remedy Asset Management Cons →

"Performance could be improved.""The reporting, which also includes dashboards, needs to be improved, and there should also be the ability to turn on and off portions of Project Management. Currently, as soon as you install the new version, you've got to go back there and make all the tweaks. There should be just a configuration file that goes to the new version.  The Project Management module does not leverage the knowledge base the way it should, and there is no built-in ability to get to the articles. Resource management should be easier. It would be amazing if they can make resource management a little bit more graphical. There are other solutions that I've seen where resource management was a more visual experience.""ServiceNow doesn't cater to the Middle Eastern market.""Licensing costs are very high.""The capital expenditure neeed to get the tool up and running is extensive.""In an upcoming release, there should be more administration tools.""Their cloud management is also not that great compared to other products.""Compared to other products that I have been using, it is not as user-friendly."
