Overview
International Business Machines Corporation is an American multinational technology and consulting corporation, with headquarters in Armonk, New York. IBM manufactures and markets computer hardware, middleware and software, and offers infrastructure, hosting and consulting services in areas ranging from mainframe computers to nanotechnology. The company originated in 1911 as the Computing-Tabulating-Recording Company through a merger of the Tabulating Machine Company, the International Time Recording Company, and the Computing Scale Company.
ServiceNow is a platform-as-a-service provider of enterprise Service Management software. It was founded in 2003 by Fred Luddy, the previous CTO of Peregrine Systems and Remedy Corporation. ServiceNow specializes in delivering ITSM applications and thus competes with BMC, Computer Associates, IBM, and Hewlett-Packard. It also provides a platform for forms-based workflow application development and thus competes with SaaS/PaaS providers such as Salesforce.com's Force.com offering. Slootman has specifically indicated this as a key corporate strategy in press interviews and keynotes at the ServiceNow user conferences called Knowledge.
