Automated workflows are key for organizations to provide data management services efficiently to the lines of business. By integrating Northern’s solution with the Now PlatformTM, organizations can ensure that core elements of data management, such as data stewardship and data ownership, are fully automated. The integration with ServiceNow is a gradual roll-out, starting with NSS: Centralized File Service Management that provides automation of requests from end users for changes in thresholds relating to data. Going forward, the standardized integration will expand to encompass data management as a whole.
“Today, many organizations around the world use both Northern’s and ServiceNow’s solutions independently of each other and realize the synergies that could be achieved if they were closer connected,” says Jonas Areskoug, Northern’s CEO. “Northern’s focus on user data, spanning IT operations, governance, compliance and data protection, complements the Now Platform and will greatly help reduce the cost and risk relating to data for our joint and future customers.”
