Last week at Knowledge14, the GFT team unveiled a proof of concept of support for Sony Smartwatch connectivity with ServiceNow . It is fair to say that the wearable technology solution we presented got a lot of attention from the media and Knowledge14 attendees on the show floor in the Moscone Center.
According to analyst firm NextMarket Insights, the Smartwatch market is set to grow to 15 million in 2014 and reach 373 million by 2020. As part of the connected world, the IT systems of the financial services sector are always on. Our move to develop Smartwatch connectivity for ServiceNow is a step to ensuring those who need to know, stay in the know on the go.
With the connection between a Smartwatch and ServiceNow, IT practitioners can receive notifications, launch a call, or open an incident from their wrist. They will always be up-to-date regardless of where your smartphone actually is. This means real-time awareness of whenever a critical system is down or an incident has been open by a VIP, your wrist will vibrate to notify of the event so support personnel can act quickly – interacting with their iPhone immediately.
GFT, as the only ServiceNow partner specialized in the financial services industry, has a strong international presence with 32 locations in 8 countries and a proven global delivery model. As an authorized ServiceNow professional services and training partner with a world class team of business analysts, SysAdmin and implementation specialists, we provide a one stop shop for investment banking, retail banking and insurance companies harnessing the power of ServiceNow.
At Knowledge14, GFT also showcased other financial services prebuilt apps such as: trade reconciliation management, risk event management, business continuity management, testing, exception handling and reputational risk management / twitter / social media integration.
