How It Works
An employee, who needs software, visits ServiceNow Service Catalog to request applications. Through ServiceNow Orchestration, App Broker first evaluates Product Use Rights to determine whether a license is required. When a license is required, App Broker checks for an available license and reserves it to ensure on-going software license compliance. The request is sent through the ServiceNow approval process, and once approved, App Broker directs the appropriate deployment system to deliver the application to the employee’s device. During the delivery stage, App Broker continually monitors the status of requests and updates the ServiceNow system of record, generating an incident if application delivery is not successful, enabling IT to proactively address any issues.
To further optimize software license consumption and reduce spending on new software licenses, App Broker enables the automation of software reclamation to uninstall applications that are not used or rarely used. The reclamation of software frees up licenses for reuse and provides data for more informed contract negotiations with software vendors.
