Organisations across all industries are investing in digital transformation to unlock new levels of innovation, agility, and productivity as they look to adapt to the new world of hybrid work. According to Gartner, worldwide IT spending is projected to reach $4.1 trillion by the end of this year.1 However, many organisations are still struggling to identify where to start as they race to modernise systems of record and digitise operations.
ServiceNow is invigorated by this once-in-a-generation opportunity to make work better for people. And we’re here to help customers at any stage of their journey.
That’s why ServiceNow has acquired Denmark-based Gekkobrain, with its deeply talented team of enterprise software experts, to help customers modernise their systems of record.
Gekkobrain’s team brings deep enterprise software expertise and a rich understanding of enterprise resource planning (ERP) system customisations. The team developed the ability to identify and understand custom code and business processes that should be modernised, enabling faster migrations, more delightful experiences and cost savings.
Enhancing ServiceNow Creator Workflows
With Gekkobrain, ServiceNow will extend the power of ServiceNow Creator Workflows, including App Engine, to help organisations identify and understand custom code in their ERP deployments and the business processes they support. Layering on the low-code capabilities of App Engine will help organisations rapidly and cost-effectively modernise their ERP systems by seamlessly identifying, automating, and customising workflows to reduce the risk and cost traditionally associated with ERP software migrations.
This announcement comes on the heels of updates to Creator Workflows in the Now Platform Rome release to further accelerate innovation. ServiceNow is helping organisations drive digital transformation through mission-critical low-code apps and process automation to keep business moving and to drive business value.
ServiceNow is thrilled to bring the Gekkobrain team on board to help customers accelerate their digital transformation journeys with ease and confidence.
