We hope your summer is progressing nicely.  Even though it is a "slower" time of year, many clients are asking us how to get more ServiceNow work done.  Some are concerned with compliance and risk and others are more focused on uptime.

We are sharing an article we wrote that could help you.  Plus we have built a pool of ServiceNow consultants and capabilities that may help you on a very practical level as well.

What Infopulse has to say about your project

Hi Ryan,

Thanks for the opportunity! In terms of a development: I personally managed this project 3 years ago here and still have back end (non standard SQL functions, non out of the box in this PaaS) and front end ServiceNOW (same for JavaScript) engineers in house.

This is a system which we've developed:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nqX8RpzkJ34

In terms of ServiceNOW infrastructure support: our infra department declares this as a part of their standard services.

General situation in Ukraine: exactly ServiceNOW engineers present in Infopulse and Ukraine. However, their number is limited compare to regular Java, .NET, Angular, React. Positive aspect: this is very simple PaaS which requires minimal initial knowledge for a good engineer. I personally feel confident in this opportunity and cannot wait to meet with Larry and review in greater detail.

Best regards,

Bogdan Tanygin

What BairesDev has to say about your project

Ryan, 

BairesDev has executed ServiceNow projects in the past and can staff easily based on the requirements.

I’m 100% sure we will be the company that will create the best team in the shortest period of time by far. We’re probably one of the few companies that are able to create a team with solid engineers and Leaders in a matter of only a few days. As you may know, we have received more than 45K (+80K including people applying for the 2nd time) new applicants in the last 12 months (https://www.bairesdev.com/top-talent) and our staffing process for deploying teams is not only very fast, but very strict too (we hire less than 1% of the applicants). We could definitely start setting up the team in the next few days.

Best, 

Damien
