ServiceNow Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC)

ServiceNow Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) manages Scrum or waterfall development efforts and defines the tasks required for developing and maintaining software throughout the lifecycle, from inception to deployment. Development and operations share data across applications and ITIL processes to determine future enhancements or track issues based on actual incidents, problems and changes. Visibility into the development lifecycle is increased and reported across development teams.

Benefits to Your Enterprise

Many organizations have multiple, standalone tools for tracking software development and projects. This results in a disconnect between the enhancements and fixes created by developers; their originating operations; processes of change; incident and problem management; and the eventual deployment of software to production. SDLC can bring all of these workflows together in a single system of record.
