With more organizations choosing cloud-first for new business applications, companies must manage cloud services across multiple public and private clouds to reduce risk and ensure compliance to company policies. In many companies, the manual processes used to deploy and manage cloud services can take days or weeks to complete. Once the services are available, end users are disconnected from lifecycle operations and must rely on help desk interactions to get their jobs done. This process can be slow and delay end users from completing their tasks or worse yet, force users into going it on their own with the swipe of a credit card. This DIY approach of acquiring the cloud services they need puts the user outside the control of IT, thus creating shadow IT problems.

Empowering Cloud End Users
Cloud Management gives end users a new Cloud User Portal experience built on ServiceNow Service Portal technology. With the Cloud User Portal, end users have a single-pane of glass to manage both business and operational aspects of their cloud resources through the Now Platform. From a central location, the user can easily access their personalized service catalog to launch new services, manage the lifecycle operations of stacks or individual resources and manage the consumption against costs, usage and quotas. Now companies can curb shadow IT by empowering end-users with direct control of their cloud resources through a consumer-like experience while maintaining IT governance and control.
In addition, with Cloud Management on the Now Platform™, organizations have a single-system-of-record for all cloud resources and seamless integration with incident, problem, and change management, automatically routing issues and requests through the standard IT processes. As cloud usage increases exponentially, Cloud Management enables your business to scale.

digital transformation, it is imperative that we deliver a unified view
of our client’s cloud resources with the flexibility, transparency and
the control they need,” said
