ServiceNow CEO Bill McDermott has called cloud computing the “pervasive computing theme of the 21st century.”
Business is really simple, and people are more productive and they’re doing things that can lead to growth and opportunity says ServiceNow CEO Bill McDermott. That’s the whole point of digital transformation.

Digital transformation is the opportunity of this generation, says ServiceNow CEO Bill McDermott. This is how you transform companies. This is how you grow and this is how you navigate a digital experience to win. We’re at the forefront of the digital transformation rage in the cloud.
We’re done with talking about if it is a good idea to digitally transform, says ServiceNow CEO Bill McDermott. Now the conversation has shifted to how quickly can you get me there.
I’m so excited about this cloud future and digital transformation. I have been all over the world and met hundreds of customers in the last three months. Digital transformation is the biggest opportunity of our time. ServiceNow is the platform that essentially is the platform of all platforms. Every environment in the enterprise today is a heterogeneous environment.
When you look at the market cap of SAP over the last decade the record speaks for itself, McDermott says. “It was an honor to leave it at maximum strength and also to see the new co-CEOs take over.
What’s happening is that digital transformation is a strategic priority for every company, says ServiceNow CEO John Donahoe. If you can’t compete digitally you can’t succeed. Companies are focusing on how can they deliver better experiences to their customers, better experiences for their employees, and drive real productivity growth.

“Where did we leave them in the dust? We basically out innovated everybody in terms of how you run your business better. Now the idea is how you create an unbelievable human experience so you inspire your people to take care of your customer and create a loyalty effect.”
