Quote

Samuel Lee, Jazz Pharmaceuticals senior manager of IT operations, said, "Service‑now.com is like using Google or Amazon.com for IT service management. We are familiar with the inefficiencies of legacy client‑server technologies and are making a concerted effort to use Web‑based, SaaS technologies to align with our company philosophy to do things in the most efficient way possible. I was really impressed by the Service‑now.com use of AJAX technologies.

"If Service‑now.com came in a box, I'd say we were able to use it right out of the box. For us, the easier technology is to install, customize and use, the better."
