ServiceNow Named an AlwaysOn OnDemand 100 Winner for Second Year in a Row

SAN DIEGO ‑ March 31, 2011 ‑ ServiceNow, the creator of cloud services for enterprise IT management, today announced it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as an OnDemand 100 winner for the second year in a row. ServiceNow is listed in the cloud management and tools category.

OnDemand Top 100 winners are leaders in the delivery of unique models and technologies likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched vendors. ServiceNow was selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts for its innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value and media buzz. After a rigorous three‑month selection process, the AlwaysOn editorial team finalized the OnDemand 100 winner list from among hundreds of other technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and industry insiders.

"As the digital information created by businesses continues to explode at astronomical rates, the need to store, manage, socialize and share this information is becoming extremely challenging," says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "By providing innovative technologies that help enterprises better compete in this new era of information complexity and move their data out into the cloud, the OnDemand 100 represent some of the highest‑growth opportunities in the private company marketplace."

ServiceNow delivers an evolved approach to IT service management (ITSM) automation and is drastically different from legacy alternatives. The company automates the delivery of service management through cloud services and is licensed through a simple and economical subscription.

Customers use ServiceNow to automate service requests, incident, problem, change and knowledge management. ServiceNow is also the first enterprise IT social network and is used for project and portfolio management, IT cost management, service catalog and service portfolio, discovery and application dependency mapping, CMDB, IT asset management and as a platform‑as‑a‑service (PaaS).

ServiceNow and the OnDemand Top 100 companies were honored at the AlwaysOn's OnDemand event on March 28th, 2011 in Palo Alto, CA. A full list of all the OnDemand Top 100 winners can be found on the AlwaysOn website.

"The OnDemand Top 100 recognizes companies that disrupt the status quo through the unique use of cloud services and SaaS," said Matt French, ServiceNow director of marketing. "We created SaaS for IT because IT organizations deserved a much better technology experience. We continue to set the standard for innovation in this market with the delivery of social IT as one element of what we call IT 3.0. Process and technologies are evolving as IT transforms to serve the needs of people and the business."
