Knowledge 2021

It’s nearly time for our annual Knowledge 2021 event.

Just like last year, we’re offering an entirely digital experience. But while some things are different, one thing remains the same: the need for sharing, connecting, and collaborating.

In six days spread across two weeks, we’re offering a range of visionary keynotes, expert-led sessions, and plenty of other engaging activities to sink your teeth into – including a great line up of speakers from the UK and Ireland. 

What’s on offer

If we’ve learnt anything over the last eighteen months, it’s how to be resilient.

And it’s resilience that comes across in so many of the stories at this year’s event. A range of our customers and partners will share their own experiences of how they’ve grown stronger businesses – and even reshaped entire industries – to cope with everything the pandemic has thrown at us.

No field has proven itself more resilient than healthcare – and so we’re delighted to be joined by two UK-based organisations that have been instrumental in the fight against COVID-19.

We’ll hear how NHS Scotland is running the day-to-day management of over 1.5 million COVID-19 test results through the Now Platform®, as well as how ServiceNow technology is helping them meet the Scottish Government’s targets to vaccinate millions of its citizens.

We’ll also hear from the Francis Crick Institute, a leading London-based biomedical research centre, whose expertise has been essential in the fight against COVID-19. We’ll explore how the Institute used ServiceNow® technology to deliver a complete track and trace app in just 22 days – delivering 60,000 tests to their employees in less than a year in order to keep operations running.

And, moving to the telco industry, BT will explain how they’re using ServiceNow to drive innovation and execution in their business, slashing time-to-market and providing an unparalleled B2B service experience.

Workflows: the hero of the modern enterprise

One other session not to miss is the keynote from our CEO, Bill McDermott, on the 11th of May at 17:00, where he’ll expand on the lessons we’ve learned from these impactful stories and explain why workflows are fast becoming the hero of the modern enterprise.

A word to the wise: it’s not the tech itself, but what you do with it. This past year has shown how essential it is that businesses have the tools to act fast and work flexibly in the face of seemingly insurmountable challenges – and workflows are just one of those tools.

After all, if we’re always prepared – and have the right tools on hand – we’ll never be caught off guard. And that’s a lesson that will last long beyond the pandemic.
