Your Passport Journey Starts with the Following Reviews of the Major Highlights of the Release
Security has always been a top-of-mind concern for successful organizations, and ServiceNow has provided a variety of solutions over the years to meet the data compliance and privacy needs of customers. The Tokyo release introduces a new security package called ServiceNow Vault and offers several premium features designed to empower organizations with greater control of their data security. The ServiceNow Vault package includes the following:
- ServiceNow Platform Encryption
- ServiceNow Data Anonymization
- ServiceNow Code Signing
- ServiceNow Secrets Management
- ServiceNow Log Export Service

Just like a tour guide shows you the way, so you don’t miss a thing, working with our Elite ServiceNow Implementation Partner helps you leverage all the capabilities of the ServiceNow platform. And for platform owners and system administrators who may struggle with identifying new features and aligning them to strategic business goals, the Tokyo release offers a new central hub for acquiring intelligent, actionable insights from the ServiceNow platform: Admin Center.
This new workspace can be accessed at the top of your ServiceNow banner and will display a variety of “adoption blueprints.” These blueprints provide application recommendations organized by the business objective to simplify achieving a particular category of success targets.
ServiceNow is rolling out a limited version of support for ECMAScript6+ in Tokyo that they are calling ECMAScript2021 and supports ECMAScript versions 6-12, but currently, it is only available in custom apps. ServiceNow has also communicated that global support is on the roadmap, so let’s hope we see it in the next release.
Our short tour doesn’t scratch the surface of everything available in the ServiceNow Tokyo release. We invite you to continue your Tokyo knowledge journey and learn about some of the other features, including Email Translation, the App Engine, the Automation Engine, new industry solutions for Enterprise Asset Management (EAM), Supplier Lifecycle Management, and Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Management.
