CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Aug 27, 2013) - Fruition Partners, the leading provider of technology-enabled services for the service management sector, today announced that Fred Luddy, Founder and Chief Product Officer at ServiceNow, and Bobby Napiltonia, Chief Revenue Officer (CRO) of Twilio, are confirmed speakers at the inaugural fruDevCon conference taking place Sept. 28-Oct. 2, 2013 at the Westin Michigan Avenue in Chicago. The conference, dedicated to developers and IT executives interested in service management in the cloud, or those currently using the ServiceNow Service Automation Platform, provides a unique setting to learn, discuss and debate the best practices to transform IT through service automation.
Offering six different tracks, more than 25 break-out sessions and labs, pre-conference training, a hack-a-thon and networking opportunities, fruDevCon will provide a stimulating environment for IT professionals committed to service management and for those using the ServiceNow platform -- giving them additional business insight, first-hand exposure to the top innovators in the industry, and opportunities to network and learn from peers at other cutting-edge IT departments. IT management professionals will benefit from the exclusive, IT Executive Track just added to the conference agenda. The one-day event, "Excuse the Disruption: Cloud Service Management and the New IT World Order," will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 1. The intimate gathering will provide CIOs, chief architects, and IT management-level executives with access to Fred Luddy, Bobby Napiltonia and other top executives who are leading IT transformation initiatives through service management automation.
ServiceNow is redefining how IT delivers service within the enterprise. As one of the longest-standing and most experienced ServiceNow partners, Fruition Partners, alongside its own partner ecosystem, is helping extend the ServiceNow Service Automation Platform by building applications and re-useable integrations that address an increasingly complex IT environment in which enterprises must operate. As the first event dedicated entirely for development on the ServiceNow platform, attendees at the conference are going to benefit from the combined knowledge to be shared by ServiceNow, Fruition Partners and Fruition's technology partners like Twilio.
In his keynote address, "Disruptive Development in the Cloud," Luddy will explore the impact of the ServiceNow Service Automation Platform, its adoption and future direction. In addition to ServiceNow features, he will discuss how both technical and non-technical "citizen developers" can rapidly create new business applications that extend the use of the ServiceNow platform inside and outside of IT. Attendees are going to leave the conference with the knowledge and practical skills to quickly stand up new applications on the ServiceNow platform that achieve positive business impact.
"I'm pleased to join Fruition Partners at fruDevCon and share how leading companies are effectively using IT automation to manage service relationships across the enterprise and change the pace of business," said Fred Luddy, founder and chief product officer at ServiceNow. "Today we are witnessing tremendous levels of change for our industry, and the imagination, collaboration and shared insight among our users, partners and developer community drive new and innovative ways to use the platform to advance the way IT empowers the enterprise."
An important component to Fruition Partners' business and value-added services is its partnership with leading independent software vendors like Twilio. In his presentation, Bobby Napiltonia, CRO of Twilio, will deliver the message that cloud-based software will change almost everything, and address how to combine the scalability and low cost of cloud-based telephony software with the flexibility and wealth of metadata already available in the ServiceNow platform to build next-generation voice and SMS-enabled business applications quickly and cost-effectively.
fruDevCon is limited to 200 attendees. Registrations are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. For complete conference details and to register for the event visit www.frudevcon.com or call 855-869-8590.
