Do you know that with a basic knowledge of JavaScript you can become a ServiceNow developer? You can get a job in top MNC companies and earn almost the same packages as compared to other technologies.

I will tell you in detail, but before that lets know about ServiceNow. 

What is ServiceNow?

ServiceNow is a cloud-based platform deployed in a browser that contains applications and data that can vary by instance and user, automating common business processes

ServiceNow Enterprise Cloud

A leader in Enterprise Service Management (ESM), the ServiceNow Service Automation Platform provides a modern, easy-to-use, service management solution in the cloud allowing your organization to automate manual repetitive setup tasks, manage your core IT processes, standardize service delivery, and focus on your core business, not just ITSM infrastructure. 

ServiceNow provides all of this to users from a configurable web-based user interface, built on top of a flexible table schema. 

The ServiceNow platform and the applications that run on it use a single system of record and a common data model to consolidate your organization’s business processes.

Another advantage of this single system is that it can be leveraged to build custom applications. 

The ServiceNow platform provides a Platform as a Service (PaaS), a cloud-based computing model that provides the infrastructure needed to develop, run, and manage applications. 

It is not limited to a specific department or function but encompasses the entire enterprise.
