ServiceNow Partner Mergers and Acquisitions: The M&A List

ServiceNow partners have been buying each other worldwide. What’s triggering the merger and acquisition (M&A) activity? The short answer involves some familiar themes: A fast-growth market coupled with a shortage of skilled experts.

Indeed, ServiceNow has emerged as a preferred IT service management (ITSM) platform for enterprise IT departments — often disrupting BMC and other entrenched software rivals along the way. In the midmarket, CareWorx Fully Managed has customized ServiceNow for MSPs and customers. And in small business, Splashtop has made some moves that may bolster the ITSM platform in that market segment.

All of that growth has triggered a shortage of ServiceNow technicians and partners worldwide. CEO John Donahoe is working to make 2019 the Year of ServiceNow Certified Professionals — but partners aren’t waiting around for the skills shortage to settle down. Instead, many of those partners are buying up talent through M&A deals.
