Our customers expect a modern cloud infrastructure backed by enterprise-class professional services to successfully transform IT. As a result, we have been scaling our professional services staff and programs. In addition, we are building our service provider ecosystem with enterprise-class organizations such as KPMG to help us scale and deliver a successful business outcome, quickly."

KPMG will provide implementation support services, process design, process integration, and IT organizational change consulting for ServiceNow enterprise customers.
Rick Wright, a U.S. partner and global cloud enablement leader at KPMG, said, "ServiceNow cloud services coupled with KPMG cloud and enterprise experience provides a powerful combination to help organizations more quickly and easily realize the full potential of the ServiceNow platform to help transform IT."
