The Service‑now.com Knowledge user conferences are a must‑attend event for professionals dedicated to solving the challenges of IT service using modern technology and real‑world IT process. Delegates will find new ways to get even more value from the Service‑now.com platform with labs and hands‑on training, a sneak peak at the Service‑now.com Fall10 release, one‑on‑one meetings with Service‑now.com developers, executives and customer care representatives. There will be numerous networking opportunities with Service‑now.com and ITSM industry professionals.

Early Knowledge10 registrants can register for complimentary pre‑conference training and courses, including Service‑now.com administrator training and an ITIL v3 course, offered on Monday, Sept. 13.

The conference caters to all types of attendees with three distinct tracks for management, technical and development professionals. New sessions and labs at this year's conference will demonstrate and discuss:
