ServiceNow Announces New Solutions to Advance Digital Business
At Knowledge ’22, ServiceNow has introduced three new solutions built on the Now Platform to help enterprises advance their digital transformation efforts. Service Operations Workspace, App Engine Management Center and Public Sector Digital Services work across organizations and within the public sector to digitize complex processes and accelerate productivity.
“Today’s business and technology leaders are facing new challenges, from low-code governance to increased demand for faster solutions,” said Chirantan “CJ” Desai, chief operating officer at ServiceNow. “As a leader in the digital business era, ServiceNow empowers customers with scalable, purpose-built solutions that help them stay a step ahead in serving their own employees, customers, and citizens. The powerful new solutions we’re launching today enable organizations to create better digital experiences for the modern workplace.”
“Automation and low-code use cases will only multiply as the need for more apps and efficiencies increases,” said Stephen Elliot, Group Vice President, I&O, Cloud Operations, and DevOps at IDC. “As IDC forecasts that 750 million new applications will be created between 2023 and 2025, teams across development, line of business citizen developers, and operations teams must adopt innovations that put new efficiency and governance guardrails in place for employees who will lead business growth and innovation.”
- Service Operations Workspace gives service desk agents and operations teams a single place to manage work, collaborate, and have shared visibility into issues. It includes a unified user experience for agents and operations teams to work on the same problem at the same time and solve issues faster. This helps reduce downtime, improve customer satisfaction, and increase productivity across multiple groups.
- App Engine Management Center (AEMC) unleashes co-innovation between business and IT with low-code app development governance. As the number of citizen developers creating low-code solutions grows, the role of IT must evolve to empower co-innovation at scale while maintaining governance protocols. AEMC is a turnkey low-code governance solution to successfully scale and safeguard app development across an organization with App Engine. Platform admins can set guardrails, apply standards, enable co-innovation between business and IT, and check for compliance in a single place without any friction.
Additionally, AEMC helps centrally manage all aspects of low-code app dev, from app intake to collaboration requests, to pipeline monitoring and deployment tasks. ServiceNow has also published a new Citizen Development Center of Excellence (CoE) website, making it easy for customers and prospects to find the content they need to build a successful citizen development program with App Engine.
- Public Sector Digital Services provides governments with a digital foundation to deliver consumer-grade experiences from request to resolution. For many people, requesting standard government services often requires visiting a local office, filling out paper forms, and submitting additional documentation, with poor visibility into the status of these requests. Within governments, fulfilling these requests can be slow and require personnel to navigate multiple aging systems and manual processes. Public Sector Digital Services provides out-of-the-box public sector data models and workflows to help governments speed innovation, deliver better experiences, and resolve requests faster. Constituents benefit from increased convenience, transparency, and responsiveness.
The three new innovations were announced in tandem with Knowledge 2022, ServiceNow’s annual event providing networking, roundtable discussions, demos and more centered around the latest power, predictability and flexibility of the Now Platform.
“At Fannie Mae, our teams are developing innovative solutions that tackle big challenges in housing.

We look forward to leveraging the Service Operations Workspace so our teams have a single pane of glass to manage their work and collaborate across workstreams efficiently and productively.”
