SAN DIEGO ‑ Jan. 25, 2011 ‑ Service‑now.com, the creator of software as a service (SaaS) for IT service management (ITSM), today announced it has won the SearchDataCenter.com 2010 Products of the Year silver award in the systems management software category.

One of the independent judges in the evaluation said, "Once again, customer success and product functionality from Service‑now.com show the company's strong innovation and presence in the IT service management market. The fact that the traditional IT software vendors have all taken notice shows how powerful Service‑now.com has become."

The judge went on to say, "In 2010, Service‑now.com strengthened its systems management offerings with its configuration management improvements and a new SaaS application for runbook automation. The company continues to look impressive serving as a catalyst for innovation in what was once a sleepy area of systems management."
