Financial institutions often face challenges in scaling operations, managing growing backlogs, and ensuring compliance. After a significant investment in ServiceNow, these institutions need help to fully utilize its potential due to operational bottlenecks, such as lengthy cloning processes and manual, error-prone release cycles.

Financial companies have transformed their operations by embedding xtype into their ServiceNow environment. Key improvements include:
