RiseUp with ServiceNow Program to Skill One Million People by 2024
ServiceNow has launched RiseUp with ServiceNow, a global initiative to train one million people on the company's platform by 2024. In the high-growth ServiceNow ecosystem, the initiative will support a new economy of in-demand, job-ready individuals with a focus on more equitable career paths.
By 2025, more than 90% of enterprises will encounter an IT skills shortage connected to digital transformation. This will cost more than $6.5 trillion globally in delayed product launches, decreased customer satisfaction, and lost business. As business leaders increase their reliance on a small number of potent platforms that offer quick time to value, ServiceNow's reach, and scale provides it’s users with the chance to contribute to solving some of the most pressing issues. The ServiceNow Platform spans the whole company, providing potential in developing new industries including data analysis, platform development, workflow, and experience design. In contrast to traditional workflow systems that exclusively manage one business function or industry.
“Digital transformation requires a talent transformation, so ServiceNow is creating a new kind of career path.”
Lightstep from ServiceNow Delivers Fully Observable Kubernetes Applications with New Unified Query Language
Lightstep Unified Query Language (UQL) was made available by ServiceNow, which allows businesses to extend visibility across Kubernetes apps. Instead of having SREs create dashboards on the spot, DevOps teams use shift-left observability directly in code to ensure Kubernetes applications are fully observable and proactively enforce consistency, maintainability, and reproducibility best practices.
Finding and extracting the right data becomes even more difficult at scale, as existing multi-cloud observability solutions frequently result in fragmented experiences that, over time, add more work for DevOps and SRE teams. IDC predicts that the observability market will grow to reach $9.08 billion by 2025. With Lightstep UQL, teams can query and correlate metrics, logs, and traces on demand across thousands of Kubernetes nodes, servers, or serverless operations, making it easier to migrate their observability from existing dispersed tools onto a unified Lightstep platform through a single query language.
“Engineers today can leverage observability‑as‑code for more powerful and flexible insights into the health and performance of their cloud-native applications.”
ServiceNow to Acquire Observability Innovator Era Software, Helping Businesses Turn Data-Driven Insights into Action
ServiceNow announced its acquisition of Era Software, a leader in observability and log management. Following ServiceNow’s acquisition of Lightstep in 2021, Era Software will help provide customers with a unified observability solution at scale. Customers will be able to gain valuable organization-wide insights that can be inside a single solution designed specifically for the digital business era.
This gives developers the required insights to comprehend the functioning of important apps at scale and how to convert that data into business value. Observability is the cornerstone of digital transformation. However, it frequently remains expensive and isolated across major businesses, giving DevOps and SRE teams a fragmented and difficult experience.

PSM is the latest solution built on the Now Platform, the most flexible, extensible, and powerful enterprise technology platform available. Only the Now Platform enables rapid innovation and transformation by combining hyper-automation technologies like low‑code application development, artificial intelligence, process mining, integration, and RPA to connect modern, legacy, or unstructured data sources and accelerate digital transformation. With one code base, one architecture, and one data model, the Now Platform connects silos across departments, integrates with all other point solutions and legacy systems, and delivers value fast, immediately, and in the long term.
ServiceNow Named a Leader in Third-Party Risk Management Platforms - The Forrester WaveTM: Third-Party Risk Management (TPRM) Platforms, Q2 2022 has rated ServiceNow as a Leader.
Two years ago, third-party risk management was a must for regulatory compliance for most organizations. For businesses to fully appreciate the crucial role those third-party relationships play in their success and resilience, it only took a global pandemic, ongoing disruption of global supply chains, an underappreciated geopolitical event, and significant cyberattacks on software vendors responsible for critical infrastructure. It is only a matter of time before the repercussions affect their company, clients, vendors, suppliers, partners, affiliates, or subsidiaries encounter a breach, attack, or disruptive event.
