They built it and showed it. Now it’s time to show it again – this time for money – on the big stage at Knowledge 2019. Buckle up finalists, it’s about to get real!

We challenged entrepreneurs to unleash innovation on the Now Platform back in October – to take the platform into new workflows in white spaces where ServiceNow isn’t, to think strategically about how to leverage the platform for what it does best – creating digital workflows that unlock productivity and delivering great experiences. In short, we’re looking for applications that will achieve product/market fit in the ServiceNow ecosystem and enable customers to drive digital transformation in enterprise- and industry-wide processes, where ServiceNow doesn’t with our out-of-the-box products.

Let’s take a look at each finalist and why we think they’ve ticked all of the boxes above.

 

 

 

Bluepineapple’s Green Folder is a BPMS  (Business Process Management Software) solution for public sector/government  that solves a huge problem like the one at the California DMV – manual, paper form based, unstructured, opaque, super slow and frustrating,  and error prone processing in government agency services. Green Folder combines digital workflows and document automation to transform this into a modern experience for citizens.

 

 

 

Workforce Connect is a predictive workforce modeling and forecasting solution that complements ServiceNow HR Service Delivery and enables businesses to generate future workforce demand plans including 3-5 year forecasts using key business data elements. It utilizes advanced analytics and modeling leveraging the data in ServiceNow to simplify the once complex task of planning for future workforce demand.  With Workforce Connect, HR organizations can forecast resources down to job title and skill level based on targeted business outcomes (revenue, operational expenses, margins etc.), and create actionable plans to secure resources to achieve those outcomes.

 

 

 

 

 

VividCharts is a data visualization solution that enhances ServiceNow reporting and Performance Analytics and enables anyone in IT and any line of business or department across the enterprise to tell stories with ServiceNow data.

What’s Next?

The finalists will pitch to, and answer questions from an esteemed judging panel, including ServiceNow Founder and Chairman Fred Luddy and an A-list of VCs and entrepreneurs at the CreatorCon Challenge Final keynote at Knowledge 2019.  Finalists will compete for a $250K investment from ServiceNow Ventures, residency at the ServiceNow ISV Accelerator in Santa Clara, and sales enablement and marketing to accelerate their market traction.  Come and join the thrills and spills!

    The workflow revolution is the future of work
    The world of work is changing – but how should business leaders react? To answer those questions, ServiceNow's Vice President and General Manager UKI, Jordi Ferrer, and Innovation Evangelist, Paul Hardy, spoke with Derek Du Preez, influencer and editor at Diginomica to provide insight on what they're hearing from businesses on the ground, and offer advice on how organisations can seize this change, rather than be swept over by it. Paul Hardy and Jordi Ferrer speak to customers and partners daily, and the message they're hearing from business leaders is clear: right now is a defining moment for business. Despite the many challenges businesses have faced as a result of the pandemic and its fallout, it's important to recognise that there are many opportunities and successes to be had too. The key concern however is, how do we make the positives of the past years permanent? And how do we continue to improve?
