Migrating from legacy applications to ServiceNow
Analysis of existing workflow architecture
- Business needs will be gathered and details of functional application description, business owner, business criticality of the application (on a scale of 1–5), usage of application in the last 90 days will be noted.
Data requirements will be understood
- What is the current size of the database(s)?
- How many documents are in the database?
- Do we need to migrate existing/historical data?
Business logic and presentation
- Are there integrations or messaging involved with this application?
- What kind of rule-based roles are required?
- What are the security requirements?
- Does it need to be optimized for mobile?
- Does it generate Outlook calendar invites?
- Do we want to migrate as is or update functionality based on business needs?
Map an application’s data model in ServiceNow
- The data model from the application will include tables, fields, files, and data relationships. This should map into ServiceNow as a table, with appropriate fields and security.
- Analyze the SLAs or Visual Task Boards, extend Task required by the application.
- Normalize user data. User data in the application may not adhere to the same conventions (e.g., how names are listed/stored) as in ServiceNow. Application owners need to manually review user data fields to identify where data conventions are different from ServiceNow, especially if data needs to be migrated to ServiceNow.
- Consider attachments for each record. If there are attachments to the app, download them. Then upload and attach to each record in ServiceNow.
- Account for security when setting up access in ServiceNow.
- When decommissioning applications, archive data considering the compliance and regulatory requirements (e.g., retaining data).
Rebuild an application in ServiceNow
- Build the data model.
- Create a table structure that autogenerates APIs, list views, and forms.
- Adjust list and form views.
- Adjust autogenerated forms.
- Insert sample data to create reports and dashboards.
- Use ServiceNow’s out-ofthe-box Service Portal to view single-page applications (as needed).
- Build the business logic.
- We will ensure that a clear understanding of the workflow (supported by the application, including approvals and data transformation) is established.
- Build the ServiceNow application using business rules and ServiceNow Flow Designer.
- Identify where integrations are needed.
- Test and publish.
- Run small functional tests as we implement each feature.
- Run full tests with production ready data, using Automated Test Framework.
- Use Git as your repo for version control and source code management.
- Consider initially releasing to a smaller group to collect feedback.
Accelerate and scale
- Build shared modules for common workflows. Many applications may use the same workflow (like an approval workflow). We will check across the portfolio of applications that will be migrated and identify common workflows across these applications, and build a single module in ServiceNow that migrated applications can call/invoke.
- Identify where we can use delegated development.
- Cluster and prioritize migration efforts by line of business or criticality.
