Integrating Omada and ServiceNow

IGA and ITSM applications help organizations centralize all identity access rights, and ensure that people can request, review, and track access to the various applications that exist throughout hybrid, cloud and multi-cloud environments.

Integrating Omada with ServiceNow allows joint customers to generate transparency of who has access to what, for what reason, and when, based on requests. The integration improves access management functionalities and capabilities including:

  • Unified application for access requests within ServiceNow
  • Enable all identities to request access to business resources and applications, whether on mobile, tablet, or desktop
  • Eliminate the need for business users to be fluent in multiple tools for accessing specific resources

There are three different types of integration options. The technology offered within the two product offerings allows for rich configuration and adaptation based on organizational requirements:

  • Governance. Governance and administration of ServiceNow accounts and entitlements within Omada
  • Provisioning. Indirect provisioning of accounts and entitlements in ServiceNow governed by Omada
  • Integration. Specific integrations from ServiceNow to Omada, utilizing the rich set of APIs provided to third-party integrations

In the sections below, we explain each integration type and give examples of the associated use cases.

Governance and Administration of ServiceNow

Omada is used for governance and administration of ServiceNow accounts and entitlements to the entire workforce based on policies or access requests and ensures that the right identities (employees, contractors, interns, auditors, etc.) have access to the provided functionality. The Omada Compliance Workbench renders compelling insights about systems and protected data, visualizing the compliance level for each application and system. It provides a high-level overview with traffic light indicators and the ability to drill down into detailed access, and the ability to easily configure unique KPIs to monitor progress. With a single click, it is possible to instantly execute remediation activities for critical findings.

Indirect Provisioning

If an organization is manually provisioning accounts or entitlements to a target system, the basis for this decision might be related to the complexity, security, or integration options of the system. Using Omada, it is possible to determine the provisioning need and create associated tickets in ServiceNow for agents to fulfill.

Integration

Organizations that use the development and configurability options in ServiceNow to build applications that mimic company-specific processes can also use the rich set of APIs exposed by Omada to make access requests, retrieve relevant identity, account, and entitlement data.
