ServiceNow Tokyo Release - New Features and Updates

ServiceNow Tokyo Release – New Features and Updates

IT departments around the world are feeling the effects of the digital transformation. Services that used to be done in-house or through an intermediary are now being delivered through the cloud. This shift has had a number of impacts, some good and some bad. One area that has been impacted is ITSM, or integrated software and service management.

ServiceNow Tokyo Release is the latest major update to ServiceNow, the global software platform for service management. With the release, ServiceNow users can now manage a global enterprise through a single platform, accelerating their time to value and delivering improved service quality.

In this blog post, we will highlight the new features and updates that come with the ServiceNow Tokyo release and how they will transform and benefit the ServiceNow users.

What are ServiceNow Releases?

ServiceNow releases occur twice a year, in the spring and fall. Every new release comes with new modules, features, as well as updates for the current products. Every new release comes after a different city to show its support to its customers.

A new release involves careful planning, testing, and validation and is time-consuming and costly. Each ServiceNow feature release has big enhancements. Therefore, it is important to analyze the impact of new capabilities on an instance.
