Welcome to week 2 of Knowledge 2020

Welcome to Knowledge 2020, week two! Last week we broke ground on our digital experience, and we are just getting started. This week, our CreatorCon Keynote is exploring how everyone, and we mean everyone, can build apps on the Now Platform.

With our new capabilities, professional developers can focus on the work that matters most. At the same time, you can empower citizen developers to unleash innovation across the organization with no-code tools and pre-built AI capabilities and models.

Customer Sessions

University of Maryland: Go on a quest into the land of machine learning
Knowing if you're ready to start is the most critical step in your ServiceNow Predictive Intelligence journey. Building a phased rollout plan for agent adoption, capturing quick wins, and maturing your solution definitions are very important. The University of Maryland has been using the Predictive Intelligence feature of ServiceNow for the last year. It’s been a fun and exciting roller coaster of a journey. Learn how it was accepted by the agents, how we 'tweaked' our solution criteria conditions post-implementation, and how we have started using the Predictive Intelligence API to best fulfill agents' needs. Since using the feature, we have seen a 77% increase in the accuracy of our data for reports by categorization and a 50% decline in our incident resolution time. Check out the session, University of Maryland’s Machine Learning Journey.

Under Armour: The Now Platform is working hard with Under Armour
Under Armour Global Technology PMO team embraced the idea to migrate the incumbent PPM tool to the ServiceNow ITBM PPM module. The results of the migration were amazing. We aligned data from demand management all the way to project delivery, made resource allocation visible to resource and project management teams, increased adoption of the PPM platform, and provided transparent information through reporting and dashboarding. Under Armour has migrated and gained the benefits via a 30/60/90 day migration strategy - an approach in reshaping the PPM platform via quick-time-to-value Agile methods. Watch the session, Igniting Under Armour's PPM Capabilities via the magic of ServiceNow ITBM.
