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.
