Software-as-a-Service Enterprise IT Service Desk Application Helps Organizations Accelerate Delivery and Reduce Cost of Efficient IT Service

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 04/20/09 -- Service-now.com, the pioneer of modern SaaS for IT service management, today announced it has been named a winner of the THINKstrategies Best of SaaS Showplace (BoSS) Award. A full description of the Service-now.com winning BoSS Award submission can be found at http://www.saas-showplace.com/awardSummary.php?key=352.

"IT organizations are increasingly adopting and experiencing the management benefits of SaaS," said Jeffrey M. Kaplan, SaaS Showplace founder and THINKstrategies managing director. "Today's SaaS solutions help IT more easily and economically deliver IT service management. Service-now.com's IT service automation solution is a clear example of the powerful capabilities of today's leading SaaS alternatives to traditional on-premise IT management applications."

Service-now.com combines Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) v3 process support, modern SaaS delivery, and Web 2.0 functionality to provide a flexible, intuitive and self-managing application. Service-now.com was founded about four years ago by Fred Luddy, former CTO of Peregrine Systems and Remedy, has more than 250 enterprise customers worldwide, and exceeded $20 million in recurring revenue as of the beginning of 2009.

"Before the advent of modern SaaS, the technology available to the enterprise IT service management market had been stagnant for decades at the expense of efficient IT service," said Matt French, Service-now.com director of marketing. "Service-now.com is providing the first viable alternative to a crumbling traditional software model. The adoption of IT service management process best practices supported by a modern SaaS application helps IT organizations provide more efficient and effective service at a time when it is needed most."

THINKstrategies is the leading strategic consulting company focused on the business implications of the on-demand services market. The BoSS Awards program was announced in January 2009 as the latest initiative by THINKstrategies to highlight SaaS and cloud computing companies which are producing tangible business benefits for end user organizations.

Microservices Articles
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
"NetApp's vision is how we help organizations manage data - delivering the right data in the right place, in the right time, to the people who need it, and doing it agnostic to what the platform is," explained Josh Atwell, Developer Advocate for NetApp, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Mike Johnston, an infrastructure engineer at Supergiant.io, discussed how to use Kubernetes to set up a SaaS infrastructure for your business. Mike Johnston is an infrastructure engineer at Supergiant.io with over 12 years of experience designing, deploying, and maintaining server and workstation infrastructure at all scales. He has experience with brick and mortar data centers as well as cloud providers like Digital Ocean, Amazon Web Services, and Rackspace. H...
Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, will discuss why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices ra...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Scott Davis, CTO of Embotics, discussed how automation can provide the dynamic management required to cost-effectively deliver microservices and container solutions at scale. He also discussed how flexible automation is the key to effectively bridging and seamlessly coordinating both IT and developer needs for component orchestration across disparate clouds – an increasingly important requirement at today’s multi-cloud enterprise.
The Software Defined Data Center (SDDC), which enables organizations to seamlessly run in a hybrid cloud model (public + private cloud), is here to stay. IDC estimates that the software-defined networking market will be valued at $3.7 billion by 2016. Security is a key component and benefit of the SDDC, and offers an opportunity to build security 'from the ground up' and weave it into the environment from day one. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Reuven Harrison, CTO and Co-Founder of Tufin, ...
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In their Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, and Mark Lav...
Many organizations are now looking to DevOps maturity models to gauge their DevOps adoption and compare their maturity to their peers. However, as enterprise organizations rush to adopt DevOps, moving past experimentation to embrace it at scale, they are in danger of falling into the trap that they have fallen into time and time again. Unfortunately, we've seen this movie before, and we know how it ends: badly.
TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) is a common and reliable transmission protocol on the Internet. TCP was introduced in the 70s by Stanford University for US Defense to establish connectivity between distributed systems to maintain a backup of defense information. At the time, TCP was introduced to communicate amongst a selected set of devices for a smaller dataset over shorter distances. As the Internet evolved, however, the number of applications and users, and the types of data accessed and...
