Meet the Fastest-Growing Enterprise Software Company Over $1 Billion Some great ideas are born in a garage. Others in a dorm room. Or over pizza and beer. Some form like the perfect wave. ServiceNow is a great idea born at the beach – San Diego, 2004, to be exact. A little south of Silicon Valley. By founder Fred Luddy and a small tribe of techies and surfers. Fred believed that getting simple stuff done at work shouldn’t be so hard. And that the complex stuff should be easier to manage. He envisioned a world where anyone could create workflows that worked for not against them. He and his crew understood the cloud when clouds were still…well, just clouds. So they built ServiceNow, a cloud‑based platform that simplifies the way work gets done. Today, every enterprise is becoming a technology company, creating unprecedented challenges, opportunities, and complexity. ServiceNow lets them run smarter, faster, better. And it helps people spend their time on work that’s meaningful, not menial. Because work shouldn’t be so hard. It should feel like riding a wave.
