ServiceNow and Microsoft Form Alliance to Help U.S. Federal Agencies Move Faster and Securely to Cloud-based Solutions that Modernize Government IT and Services
SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 11, 2018--ServiceNow (NYSE: NOW) today announced an alliance with Microsoft to deliver ServiceNow digital workflows through the Azure Government Cloud. This combined cloud offering is designed to help the government accelerate its digital transformation and modernization of information technology. Microsoft announced this alliance today at its Government Leaders Cloud Forum in Washington, D.C.
The ServiceNow and Microsoft alliance will enable U.S. Federal customers to deploy ServiceNow’s technology via the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. This combined cloud offering is expected to bring together ServiceNow’s industry-leading IT services and operations management products as well as extensive platform capabilities together with the security and protection and highest level of compliance on the market offered by Microsoft’s Azure Government regions including support for Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Impact Level (IL) 5 and FedRAMP High. ServiceNow was recently recognized as Forbes’ #1 World’s Most Innovative Company.
“Federal agencies are increasingly focused on modernizing their digital infrastructure, but a long review process and a higher regulatory standard to approve cloud offerings for U.S. Federal use can greatly hinder the government’s ability to deploy innovative cloud solutions,” said Brian Marvin, Vice President of Federal Sales, ServiceNow. “With this offering, U.S. Federal customers are expected to have greater access to ServiceNow’s best-in-class digital workflows on Azure Government regions including support for (IL) 5.”
“The Microsoft Azure Marketplace gives federal customers the added capabilities they need to quickly acquire and deploy cost-effective solutions that are configured to run on the Azure Government platform,” said Tom Keane, Corporate Vice President, Azure Global, Microsoft. “The integration of ServiceNow digital workflows into the Azure Marketplace further expands our offerings that help the federal government achieve its IT objectives.”
