At GuideVision we can see as the ServiceNow platform grows and expands its portfolio of applications and capabilities, it's not easy to keep up with all its new features and solutions. Some clients are even concerned that their solution is already obsolete and should be updated in order to fully leverage the newest platform potential. In our experience, our clients always appreciate a short session to summarize the current application portfolio.

The goal of this webinar is to go through the current Now Platform portfolio and introduce (or maybe re-introduce) some of the platform’s most important applications and capabilities, such as IT and non-IT application suites and the newest low-code/no-code features.

Participants will be updated on the following:

 {NOW Doctor} Use Cases

Data Filter

Situation:
Management dashboard with multiple reports loads very slowly (1-2 minutes)

Impact:
TIME: Dashboard loaded very slowly
PERCEPTION: The dashboard is regularly used as a real-time basis for operational and strategic meetings with C-level reps. The ServiceNow platform’s reputation was harmed in the eyes of the executive management.

Analysis:
Our analysis found that multiple reports used in the same dashboard were based on very similar data, which contained a lot of "dot-walking" references to different records. The reporting on the data was not needed live, but on a weekly basis.

Cure:
A new table with pre-computed, aggregated data (i.e. computed report) was introduced. A weekly scheduled job prepared the data and fed it to the table. The indices were created on the key fields, which resulted in faster response. Report data sources on the computed report table with pre-defined queries were created. All current C-level reports were adjusted to use the new computed report.
 
Benefit:
UX: The load time for the dashboard was cut from 1-2 minutes to 5 seconds.


Platform: Cut the number of complex queries to the database 


Reporting admins: Shorter time to deliver similar reports based on the same report data source


Restored the platform’s reputation

Slow management dashboard

Situation:
Every time an item is added to a list of items to be updated, a script is started to identify potential conflicts withthat particular item, especially in terms of allowed status, existing relationships with other depending records and data, populated mandatory attributes, etc..

Impact:
TIME: The script took significant time to run and the user interface looked frozen while it did, usually for a couple of seconds
UX: he overall user experience was very poor because multiple items were typically added.

Analysis:
Based on performance monitoring and deep reverse analysis of the script, we found out that the script was calling incorrectly implemented methods that checked all added items instead of the one just added, so every additional item took more and more time to run. We also found that acheck is not asimportant at the time an item is added but when the prepared list is complete, since the entire list may look correct until the last item is added and checked with those already added. The third issue was found in the way the script is executed. It was a synchronous script which forced the user to wait until it was finished. This script could easily run in an asynchronous mode, letting the user continue add additional items.

Cure:
The script was corrected at the method level, and could be called using a button instead of repetitive real-time execution, typically at the end when the list is complete so there is no impact on the UX.

Benefit:
UX: Improved user experience and the overall perception of the particular functionality


Process: Reviewed and optimized the overall business process


Platform: Corrected script with no impact on DB performance anymore

Fast lists, slow forms

Situation:
A list of data from the project table is fast, but opening the form for one record took around 1 minute. The situation arose after the count of user groups increased from hundreds to tens of thousands.

Impact:
TIME: The management of projects was greatly  complicated. The whole process of project management was virtually paralyzed. The entire platform came under increased stress and the overall response was impacted.

Analysis:
Our analysis identified an issue in the security rules on the project table. Multiple write ACLs on fields had the same scripted condition, which queried the group table and counted the records to get information about the existence of at least one group. The query was not well optimized, and performing the query took a few seconds.

Cure:
The set of write ACLs was replaced by a general asterisk rule applied to “all other” fields. This ACL is now evaluated once for the record and significantly reduces the solution’s complexity. The query in the script was optimized by a specialized composite index. The aggregation counting the records was replaced by an existence condition.

Benefit:
UX: Project management is restored to its original state, and the form now takes around 2 seconds to load.

Platform: Performance degradation introduced by the huge list of groups is mitigated
