Over the past two decades, expectations of technology have changed immensely with demands for instant results and fast-paced lifestyles that require mobile capabilities. Rewind back to 2004: Mark Zuckerberg launched Facebook from his dorm room at Harvard, three years prior to the release of the iPhone, and the same year that niche cloud computing company, ServiceNow was founded.
For the past 15 years, ServiceNow has simplified daily tasks through the power of technology. Present day, the Now Platform is delivering automated employee experiences to almost 75% of the Fortune 500.
“When I started ServiceNow in 2004, my vision was to build a cloud-based platform that would enable regular people to route work effectively through the enterprise.” -Fred Luddy, ServiceNow Founder
