ServiceNow acquires Belgium-based data management firm Sweagle
The acquisition of configuration data management firm Sweagle will strengthen ServiceNow’s IT workflow capabilities to help customers accelerate digital transformation, enhance agility, and reduce risk
ServiceNow has signed an agreement to acquire Sweagle, a Belgium-based configuration data management company. According to the vendor, the transaction will extend its DevOps and IT Operations Management (ITOM) capabilities, giving customers the ability to leverage machine learning to identify and help prevent potential misconfigurations from causing outages in production and speeding up remediation.
COVID-19 has made organisations realise the importance of quickly adapting technology to meet evolving customer and employee needs. Sweagle provides a single source of truth for configuration data that is otherwise spread across many tools. With Sweagle, ServiceNow customers can identify and intercept application and infrastructure inconsistencies during agile development cycles.
“With capabilities for configuration data management from Sweagle, we will empower DevOps teams to deliver application and infrastructure changes more rapidly while reducing risk,” said RJ Jainendra, Vice President and General Manager of DevOps and IT Business Management at ServiceNow. “Sweagle also brings deep DevOps talent to ServiceNow. Both founders are pioneers in configuration data management, and we are honored to have this talent join our team as we continue to help customers compete and win in a digital economy.”
