GFT presents Smartwatch connectivity for ServiceNow® at Knowledge14

KNOWLEDGE14, SAN FRANCISCO, CA - 29th April, 2014 - GFT, a leading international IT solutions provider to the financial sector, today announced support for Sony Smartwatch connectivity with ServiceNow® . The wearable technology solution, which is in proof of concept, is on show this week at ServiceNow's Knowledge14® conference, the largest gathering of IT professionals using cloud services for enterprise IT service automation. The conference is on until May 1st at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

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. This move by GFT 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.

Christopher Ortiz, managing director of GFT UK commented: "GFT has been working with ServiceNow from the very beginning and have worked hard to develop complementary solutions for our financial services ServiceNow customers in order to get the most out of their investment. The ability to extend the reporting and interaction with clients' ServiceNow platform via Smartwatches is just one more example of how we offer clients integrated solutions based on the very latest technology and platforms."
